- 23 Jun 13 Books Sheet: In converting to Office 2013 meant that an updated version I placed on my site on the 12th of June was locked by Office and so the password I created was no longer recognised. Spreadsheets downloaded this time will get a Runtime error message when the book list filter is used. Email me your spreadsheest for a free fixed spreadsheet if you have this problem: arukiyomi AT gmail.com

No. There is no other way to pay for the spreadsheet I’m afraid. PayPal is very secure and makes international payments very easy. You can also use it even if you don’t have a PayPal account by using your credit or debit card.
If you don’t get a link, you can email me at arukiyomi AT gmail DOT com and I’ll send you the spreadsheet by email. However, please note that if you pay by eCheque, you won’t get a download link. Instead, we have to wait for your eCheque to clear. When it does, I’ll get a notification from PayPal and will send your spreadsheet by email. If you don’t hear from me within a few days of paying, email me at the address above.
I hear you. But under the terms of our contract with Quintessence, this is necessary.
It means that this spreadsheet has been approved by Quintessence Editions Limited who hold the copyright on the contents of the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. It means that any other spreadsheet you may have is not approved by them and thus infringes their copyright.
Quintessence Editions Limited have also approved the re-release of new versions of the 1001 Books App and 1001 Movies App. These should be available later in 2013.
Yes. We will be releasing a 1001 Movies Spreadsheet later this year. So far, we only have plans for 1001 Books and 1001 Movies apps. Once we’ve got those up and running, we’ll consider other titles.
There’s an import feature which will make this really easy for you to do. It’s as simple as copying and pasting. The spreadsheet will do all the rest for you.
Sorry to hear that. You can have another, but you’ll have to buy the spreadsheet again from this site. To prevent this happening, do make sure you back up your spreadsheet on a different drive.
