    Question Can I somewhere buy IMB audiobooks on audio-CD, i.e. physical not download?

    I like the audiobooks of Iain M Banks' SF novels. I bought a few of them without media, as download, from Amazon. However this is very problematic as I prefer listening to them from Audio-CD. I could convert them to Audio-CD, but it was a lot of work for each audiobook to circumvent the copy-protection (euphemism: "digital rights management"). Also, I live in Japan where we now have extremely strict laws regarding illegal dowbloading, and even if I downloaded legally as I did, the burden of proof that it was legal will be mine in case I will ever be accused of illegal downloading. I simply have no interest in paying for downloads anymore, I want to pay but for this I want to acquire CDs.

    tl;dr: Can I somewhere buy IMB audiobooks on audio-CD, i.e. physical not download?
