When or rather will the Head first book series be available in the mobi or azw format?

When will the Head first book series be available in mobi/azw format? I've understood the reason till this point is that the graphics heavy format of the books doesn't translate to certain file formats well. However, since amazon has introduced the azw format I was hoping that had changed. Thank you

  • Hi Larry,

    Thanks for writing us about this. Currently, there are no plans to make Head First books available in more formats. The reason they don't work well in other formats like mobi or epub, is that those formats are reflowable, and this would make the books difficult to read. We will continue to think about this, so thanks for checking in.

    Have a great day!

  • Hi,
    Following up on the question of Larry, would you consider reviewing the Head first series pdf version to optimize its reading on tablets?
    I'm (egotistically) focusing here on 10inch diagonal screens:
    my personal experience shows it doesn't work well, readable but tiresome when trying out the single page fit,
    but as there a fair amount of empty space consumed by left and right margins, "recutting" the pdf to reduce them could be a reasonably easy work.

    I'm a big fan of O'Reilly, and more so even of the Head First series, so I'd love to see that happen.

    Kind regards,
