Apparently there's no way to find the start and end of each book.... As in no chapters.. Wth. Was going to get the 3 volumes as it does seem like a set of books to read. Screw it ill get the 50 cent one and see myself


Edit
Seems fine.
Table of contents at front skips to the books. Will buy the others.. Worth reading the classics. Thanks op.

I would honestly pay 50 cents to not have to search, download, and file away each book. Comes out to one cent per book.

Unless you're just using this list as a reference, I suppose.

It's why I paid for it... All in one place. Have a nice day. It'll give me a year or so of reading maybe longer. Stuff I never thought to read and stuff I've heard of, but never been inclined to read. Now in my lap, I'll be better for it.. Now only to find the appropriate discipline to not stay up late at night reading..

tbh these are all free and better to get the individual books cause u can better organize them on your kindle like sorting and using filters and categories. You'll also get all the covers of the books for your Kindle and just pick the ones you'll read. Oh and save 50 cents too i guess

I'm pretty new to ebooks, this seems to only be available on the U.S. site and says "not available in your region" on the Canadian site? I just created another account for Amazon.com (instead of .ca) which let me download it but now I can't seem to access it to read it...what am I doing wrong?
