Enjoy this new release as my Christmas gift to you. This volume is another easy conversion work because my OCR software did an excellent job to read the PDF source.

My usual text from all posts of Spice and Wolf:

As I explained when I first started this conversion project, I decided to do my own version of Spice and Wolf in EPUB format. The process of converting PDF to EPUB is not as simple as clicking a button. Yes there are all-purpose converters like Calibre. The PDF that I got is actually image files attached together as PDF. When Calibre “converts” the PDF to EPUB, it does not detect the text inside the pages’ image files and treated the file like a comic book. The conversion result is not something nice to read in any mobile reader. So, there is only once option left: to do manual work, hours of work just for one book. But the result is good and worth it.

Why in EPUB format? I prefer EPUB format for my e-books because it’s more comfortable to read in smartphones, e-readers and tablets. EPUB is widely supported by various brands. You can open EPUB books in Nook reader, Kobo reader, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android smartphone or Android tablet. It will automatically adjust to whatever screen size you have. Plus giving us the ability to change the font size, to get the best reading experience.

By “manual work”, I never mean that I have to re-type the entire thing. No, that’s not what I did. It would take forever and I won’t have time (or patience) to do that. What I did is using a software to convert the entire text from the image files, have it extracted as plain text, then start doing “manual” editing to remove page numbers, hyphenation issues (thousands of them), quotes, and some conversion and formatting errors. I’m a perfectionist when it comes to books I like, so I want the best possible EPUB file created.

 

Since I was doing manual editing, I need to check the words and sentences manually. So please let me know if I missed something. Thank you.

  • Thank you so much for your hard work! I’ve just finished watching the anime and I am HOOKED! I can’t get enough. However, it’s so difficult to find them in EPUB format and unfortunately all of your links have been taken down. Perhaps try ‘nyaa’? Nyaa is famous for anime and J,K,T-dramas since d-addicts was ‘shut down’. Thank you so much, once again.

  • Thank you so much for taking the time to convert everything! Unfortunately the download links don’t work anymore and was wondering if you could re-post them.

    • The downloads are taken down due to copyright issues. I am not allowed to re-upload them to the same file sharing service. Anyone with good recommendation of reliable file sharing service that does not strictly clean up their files using copyright algorithm?

      • The admin of pomf.se seems like a cool guy. He normally doesn’t take stuff down and the site is really transparent about things. I’ve used the site for a few years and I’ve never had a problem with them.

        • Oh forgot to mention teknik.io as a second mirror. It’s also a small independent site with a good policy and very transparent. Every upload is automatially encrypted which is nice. The download url you get has the key included so people downloading it don’t have to do anything special to take advantage of it.

  • You are the best! I’m really thankful, THANKS!!!

  • Hi thanks for all your work in converting the PDFs. I was wondering have you got a hold of volume 13?

  • Hello, I’m really impressed with your work and grateful for your ePub conversions that you have contributed to Spice and Wolf fans. I’m not very technologically savvy, and I was wondering if you could convert 3 volumes of light novels I have into the ePub format. They are volumes 4-6 of the series No Game No Life. If you don’t wish to, I understand that it’s not everyone’s genre. I have the first 3 volumes in ePub format.

  • Thank you so much for all of your spice and wolf conversions. I am eternally grateful!

  • Thanks so much 🙂 when wil you post the next volume? And thanks again.

  • thanks much 🙂 happy holidays!!

  • Thank you very much, as always! Christmas came a day early!
