Thanks.
There is an illustrated html version available at:

Is that the copy you're referring to? If so I can convert it for you.

The Walter De La Mare Omnibus (1933) - or any ghost story anthology by De La Mare!

There ought to be some in the public domain - in fact, many of the individual stories should be. But I've never been able to track them down. Anyone have any ideas? And btw, not 'Henry Brocken', 'The Return', 'Seaton's Aunt', and the other very early ones already on Gutenberg.

Yes, George, that's the version I mean. The illustrations are omitted in the manybooks version, I would be so pleased if you could convert the html to lrf for me, thanks.

Ellen Hopkins writes current YA bestsellers; they're all covered by copyright, and not available for free distribution. They are available for purchase at most major ebook stores; they seem to be between $10 and $12 each, mostly.

In other words: Mobileread is not going to help you find bootleg ebooks. This thread is for requests for public-domain and creative-commons works, or works where the author's given permission for the books to be distributed.

The only lrf reader I have is Calibre so let me know if you have any problems with it.

I would gladly pay for an epub or mobi version of this book if only I could find it. Strangely, an HTML version does exist, but no one's actually converted and formatted it. If someone wants to do the basic work and have me proofread, I'd be happy to:

Minima Moralia, by Theodor Adorno (translated by Dennis Redmond):

HTML Version

The HTML version seems to be licensed by Creative Commons.

Source

=================

Also: +1 for a lovely formatted version of Elizabeth and Essex, by Lytton Strachey (or, really, anything by him, including his translations of Freud).

I've placed copies of Elizabeth and Essex in the library.

epub version:

mobi version:

Thanks tons for that, George!

Again: Anyone whose interested in creating an epub and/or mobi edition of Adorno's Minima Moralia will have my support. I'm willing to proofread all or a good portion of the HTML's text against that of my physical copy if necessary.

That's excellent, Doitsu! Are the conversions your handiwork?

I wouldn't exactly call it handiwork, because it took me only 10 minutes with Sigil to generate it from the pretty good HTML source.
It still needs to be checked for errors and is missing a cover page.

I noticed the lack of a cover because I was able to send the file to my Kindle at work (where I don't have Calibre or Sigil), but the text looks great.

One issue, which we might want to discuss privately so as not to derail the thread:

Every time I try to open an HTML file or conversion, or edit a preexisting epub book in Sigil, I seem to lose part of the text. I was working on a version of At-Swim Two Birds and ceased once bits of text began disappearing. I didn't know how to stop the process, let alone undo it.

That's the only reason I hesitate to work on Minima Moralia in Sigil. If you wouldn't mind trading a few emails on the subject, perhaps I can take your conversion, add a cover and hone the text. I have a beautiful hardcover of MM to which to compare it.

Whether you choose to advise me or not, thanks tons for converting and uploading the book! Such a pleasure to see the text on my Galaxy S and PRS-350.
