Unzip the LRF and you can use Calibre to convert to Mobi.
Thank you Jon. I figured it out earlier and converted it. It looks pretty good.

I've converted LRF to ePub. It works well enough.

Daughter of Time is available for free on this forum, just for people who are looking I voted for it since I nominated it and want to read it, but I would be happy with The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie winning too.

Oh - I'm such a fool. I didn't think in a million years that The Daughter of Time would be public domain. Just checked and it appears in the Australian Gutenberg site as well.

So I can definitely read 3 out of 4 of the offerings this month.

I had to vote for Saki's short stories, as I am totally enthralled with Spring Snow (slowly, but I'm getting there!) - but I'll be happy with any of the four.

I like the way there's a hidden poll, followed by discussion about which books the poster has chosen. Perhaps someone should keep a running tally...

Oh! When did this poll close?

The short stories of Saki takes the win.

The core book is Beasts and Super Beasts which you can get on the e-book section of this forum. It is very well formatted.

I'm pretty happy with this actually as I've never read Saki and the fact that it's short stories makes it less imposing.

Just have to finish A Christmas Carol and The Little World of Don Camillo- then I'm on this.

It is also obtainable in Epub and Mobi direct from Project Gutenberg. PG provides a good TOC. However, the AZW copy from Many Books was awful with no accessible TOC. In the end, I personally liked the MR edition here most, though you have to convert it in Calibre.

I also found Beasts and Super-Beasts & The Chronicles of Clovis by Saki at feedbooks for free. I have not checked the formatting for the mobi nor the epub.

The LRF for Beasts and Super-Beasts (for the MR e-book library) is already on my Sony reader and will be up soon. I am right now finishing up The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (short book) and will probably fit a couple of more books in before starting Saki to finish that up closer to the discussion open.
