    That's good. I didn't want you to get cheated out of them for some reason.

    Just started Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Haven't read any of these before.

    Me neither. I have a lot of cool stuff on my nook, like:

    --several Stephen King novels
    --Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol
    --Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
    --Bram Stoker's Dracula
    --the complete Sherlock Holmes

    And that's just off the top of my head.

    Over the past few years, I have found hundreds of free complete collections of the works of the greatest authors. Not that I don't purchase non-free books, mind you, but it's wonderful to own everything of Dickens, the Shelleys, Doyle, Stoker, Twain, the Bard, Austen, Lovecraft, Fitzgerald, Woolf, Wilde, Gibbons, etc. on my Kindle. At last count, I have close to 14,800 items that I can download. Now I just a need a couple of lifetimes to read it all.

    Read it in college. Great satire that is still relevant today.

    Today I read Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl.

    I agree. It is a literary classic worth reprinting.

    It has 640 pages of words including the introduction and Swift's poems, costs only $4.95 dollars, just one dollar more than a comic book.

    The Dust that falls from dreams. A good read.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.
