Beautifully done! Thank you. I especially appreciate having all the book descriptions right on my Kindle. The Download Guide is a wonderful service. Laurel

Alex, are you gonna have to get Nate neutered now?

Seems a shame. Such a nice little doggie.

Works great, Alex! And I don't believe the logo is all that pixilated. It just looks worse when blownup for a screensave.

Please not that this is not specifically a "Kindle" Guide; it will work with any device that supports MobiPocket books.

Ahh, I'm not falling for that one again. Last time that happened I had to sell the whole pesky lot to Disney World just to be rid of them (apparently Animal Kingdom doesn't feed itself).

Yes, it does (Iliad here), and, as I say, it's full of juicy goodness with it too.

Cheers,
Marc (TedPark's spreadsheet of PG works is a pretty handy reference too, over here)

So when I saw that Alexander had included the book descriptions, I thought that was very good.
Well, the guide on Feedbooks doesn't have all the lists. There's all the list that admins (in this case my lists) created and that's it. There's far too many lists (anyone can create a list) that wouldn't be interesting for the average user to include all of them. I'll add a rule in the future: something like, if a list gets more than 5 favorites, it gets listed in the guide.

That's the sort of problem that I pointed to. On some Kindles it might slow down just a bit, on others it can almost crash the device.

Nate and Alexander, terrific job! I don't have a Kindle but I'm keeping a copy of this on my desktop where it works great particularly for navigating and browsing the library. Just an excellent idea, guys.

Harry T. Thank you!

I just finished downloading all 12 of the Philo Vance novels. I especially appreciate that they are in chronological order. I had some downloaded from feedbooks.com, but deleted those because they were in willy nilly order.........I like to read series from the beginning.
Would you like some candy from the US???

There's a list available for the Philo Vance novels: http://www.feedbooks.com/list/view/23
It's also in the guide with a description for the list.
