We here at MobileRead are very pleased to announce that, thanks to the diligent efforts of our own HarryT (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/member.php?u=7016), we now have the complete works of Charles Dickens available in MobileRead's e-book section (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/ebooks.php?ltr=D&pp=0&sort=ebook&order=asc).
According to HarryT's comments, this includes everything except "a few items of Dickens' journalism, letters, etc, which are not available in electronic format."
It should be noted that several others have posted various portions of Dickens' works, and we do not mean to diminish their efforts in the least.
However we felt this accomplishment worthy of mention because it represents Dickens' entire electronically available works formatted to a common standard by a single individual which gives them a nice feeling of continuity.
Please join me in offering HarryT a word of appreciation and encouragement for his time and effort in putting this together for us. :clap:

(For me this is great news, because I have only read Great Expectations, which I absolutely loved.)

This weekend's uploads of illustrated versions of "Little Dorrit" and "Barnaby Rudge" complete the fully illustrated versions of all the novels. I had to scan the illustrations for these myself, so some of them are a little distorted at one edge where the spine of the book was. Apologies for that.

Once they are all completely edited, you should make a complete works download pack. ;)

Brilliant work, Harry. Your books are always beautifully formatted.
Incidentally, I never realised that Dickens was left-handed until I saw the picture in the first post. (I too am left-handed.)

Incidentally, I never realised that Dickens was left-handed until I saw the picture in the first post. (I too am left-handed.)I got that pic from Wikipedia, it's possible that it's been reversed somewhere along the way, I just don't know ....

Thanks for this harry.

I got that pic from Wikipedia, it's possible that it's been reversed somewhere along the way, I just don't know ....
A Google image search shows just such a reversal, actually in a fuller version from which the Wikipedia one appears to have been cropped. There's a couple of other pictures that show him in right-handed pose, but also repeats of the Wikipedia version too.
Maybe he was ambidextrous. ;)
Oh, by the way, good stuff, Harry. I'm sure I'll be making use of this soon, thanks.
