The fifteenth book of Spice and Wolf (Ookami to Koushinryou) by Isuna Hasekura in EPUB and MOBI format.
I am back. I am aware that Yen Press now has their own official EPUBs of this great story. I will purchase the original EPUB from Yen Press to support the writer. I will continue to create my own EPUBs for my own Kindle and share it to those who prefer my version. However, If you like this light novel and it is available to purchase legally in your country, please buy a legal copy of the book. It can be in digital or physical format, whatever is available and more convenient, to support the author and whoever did a good job in translating these into English.
Thanks to some commenters, I am aware that some of my uploaded files are no longer downloadable. I will re-upload them when I have time.
Finally, Happy Valentine’s Day!
As I explained when I first started this conversion project, I decided to do my own version of Spice and Wolf in EPUB format (then added MOBI 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. The MOBI format (for Kindle readers) is derived from EPUB version with minor adjustments.
By “manual work”, I don’t 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 and MOBI files 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.
