bk1 – honto site is up!

The newly combined bk1-honto site is up and running as of today. I signed in with my bk1 user info and everything transferred over fine… order history, bk1 points earned, save for later. The new store shows the same overseas shipping options as bk1 did, so it looks like I can continue to order from them using the cheapest method, yay! The shipping costs aren’t listed for the two cheapest options yet, so I hope they update it soon. I plan to place my first order in early June.

The e-bookstore portion seems to offer a decent variety of books, magazines, and manga. Their manga prices are the same as ebookjapan, but there is a one year time limit for reading. Also, their selection of e-manga is about the same as ebookjapan, so I’m going to stick with ebookjapan for e-manga for now.

Update: I’ve been browsing through the e-manga area and they actually offer a lot of different josei manga compared to ebookjapan. However, I couldn’t download a sample and after going through the Help section, I discovered that the e-bookstore is only available in Japan.

      Wow, sorry for the late reply… you probably already have the answer to this question, but yes you can read most of their ebooks on the PC. They show which devices are compatible for each ebook.
