Get notification when ebook becomes available when I select a print book of interest

When a publisher releases a new book print only, and I'm only interested in purchasing it as ebook, I want to set some kind of notification on individual titles I am interested in, so that when Gobi gets the ebook, I get emailed telling me it's now available as e. It seems that there are still many publishers who delay the e for months after the initial p release but will do e eventually - those are the ones I want to capture with this.

    Actually I have been in touch and it does not. Gobi has a similar notification but that only applies to print books that matched our approval profile. What I'm asking for is the ability to activate such a notification on a book by book basis without regard to whether it matched any of our profiles, for instance when I hear about a new book from a news source.

    Thank you for your idea! GOBI has several approval notification options that could meet this need for you. Your GOBI sales representative will be in touch to share options with you soon.
