Will there be a Kindle (Amazon) or Nook (Barnes & Noble) or Apple Books edition of the new book?

Hello Mark, there are no immediate plans for an ebook version at this stage. The ebook requires a different style of formatting I believe. Georgia

Hey um, by chance is this book free?

Not sure if that link worked free Snap! materials are here

The book is available in hardware form only, so has to be printed and shipped etc, so not free.

There are free resources for Snap! here Snap! Build Your Own Blocks

You should check them out.

um ok thanks
