e-Book Requests and Begging (Public Domain Books Only!)

With the obvious success and popularity of the Reader Book Uploads section, it seemed appropriate to provide a place for requests. If you have that one favorite book with potentially broad appeal that you would love to see nicely formatted, you might just catch the eye of one of the generous folks doing this very cool work, and who happen to love the same public domain book you do.

Let me point out the obvious - this thread may never actually catch the eye of anyone. Your request will probably be ignored!

Remember that those who do this kind of work are doing it as a labor of love, and we are very fortunate that they so generously share the fruits of their labor. We can't expect people to spend this kind of time on random books on a whim. But you never know...

To start things off, here's one book that would be really nice to have with functional links to the footnotes...

Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan.

At one point, it was one of the most widely read books in history, and according to Wikipedia, "this work is regarded as one of the greatest classics of literature". While it generally appeals primarily to Christian readers because it's an allegory of the Christian life, it's the kind of tale that could have wide interest due to its previous popularity and readers' general desire to expand their exposure to all kinds of famous literature.
