I wish they would re-release the Hardy Boys Casefiles and Supermysteries in ebook format.

I recently picked up a copy of Choke Hold, #51 in The Hardy Boys Casefiles- the UK reprint version. [i.e. the 1999 one; not the funky UB hybrid version. That volume would be really interesting to find just for the weirdness of the whole thing.]  :) 8)
I wasn't terribly worried about getting these for my collection, but since I happened to find one at random at a used bookstore, I was happy to grab it up.

Are there UK spellings?

Not that I can tell- I think it's the same text printing as the American version.

Cool! I haven't gotten any of the new cover re-releases yet, but I might like to pick up The Secret of the Old Mill at some point (as that's about the only one that I really like pretty well.) :)
So I take it this means they're already in stores now? I will have to look for them.

I got mine from Amazon, so I can't vouch for any particular store.

Oh, okay. I'll have to check Barnes & Noble next time I get over there. It's always nice to actually see the books sitting for sale on the bookshelves...but sadly, that seems to be a rarer thing nowadays....

I got my new cover books from Chapters-Indigo.ca.  When I asked at the store, the sales person told me that the books will probably be available on the shelf in the big Chapters - Indigo box stores in Ottawa and Toronto.  But in the Coles mall outlets, again probably in Ottawa and Toronto you'll see them (maybe not all four, but one or two), but in the rural regions the books will probably be only available online.

#160 A Game Called Chaos

The price on the back of the book says $9.95 ($11.99 CA).   That sounds awfully expensive for a paperback.

Wow- that can't be right. I bought that book when it released and I'm pretty sure it didn't cost quite that much. I hope that's a typo and not the current price for Hardy Boys books.
