Migrate books from other platforms


  • Premium Member

    More of a question than a wish, is there a way to migrate books bought on another platform to my J-Novel Club Library ?

    I bought a few books on Amazon before becoming premium member a couple months ago and I'd like to migrate all books to my library here if there is a way to do that.

    Also, even if it's quite easy to do with Calibre it might be cool if we could download a merged version of some series if we have all books in our library.

    I created with Calibre Ascendance of a Bookworm Part1 (merge of the first 3 volumes), Part2 (volume 4 to 7).

    My understanding is that the library is only for books purchase directly from JNC. I've not heard of any plans for this to change.

    For some books you may want to consider getting credits on JNC under the Cyber Monday deal to buy the premium version of the book from JNC. As noted at https://forums.j-novel.club/topic/305/premium-e-book-bonus-contents-list/ there are various bonuses such as additional stories and illustrations plus all the art is in the highest resolution and available in epub format. Unfortunately there is no discount for having already owned a different copy of the book.

    That's probably going to be the plan :)

    Yeah, it'd have been awesome to be able to do that. By my count I have purchased 116 J-novel volumes from Amazon since October 2018. It wasn't until earlier this year I considered membership -- I'd have been aboard long ago if I'd known I was missing out on premiums with short stories, not just larger filesizes.

    The membership never made sense to me, since I prefer to read fully edited books on my e-reader and dislike reading novels on my monitor or phone. This is my first premium credit sale, though I'd already snagged enough to add volumes 117-140 and another 15 preorders. I can't really justify rebuying 80+ volumes that contain stories I missed, though.

    At the very least I'd love the new site to add an option to mark old volumes "purchased" once they get it working better.
