Canadian Escapades now available as an ebook

Link to Canadian Escapades now available as an ebook

I took a break from the blog to work on other formats for the book. I'm happy to announce that Canadian Escapades is now available as an ebook for Kindle!

[Update: the link now points to Amazon for the Kindle edition.]

Denis at Fifobooks let me know that our 2-column format would work fine on most ereaders, and did some of the format conversion and testing. As thanks, the ebook is available there exclusively at launch. We'll add other outlets soon.

I would guess that Canadian Escapades is the first bilingual ebook with side-by-side alignment by sentence. If anyone has links and/or screenshots for other dual-language ebooks, please send them along.


  • ebook: $7.99 introductory price $3.99
  • paperback: $12.95

Congrats, I find it a very good idea. Some years ago I implemented something similar, but for the web and using javascript.

Maybe we should consider now to convert from the original XML we use into ePub, also.

Thanks for the link.

One difference: yours is still aligned by page rather than sentence.

Still, it's well done -- especially with a selection of languages. If you need tips on converting to ePub, let me know. It's easy for someone who is familiar with xml/html ... and not that hard in general for someone willing to learn.

Hi Scott,

thank you for your answer.

Our system is also sentence-aligned. If you click on one sentence (in the source language), the corresponding one in the target language turns on :)
