Indeed!

I have all Harry's Dickens ebooks as well and they are great; if you (OP) are looking for a complete in one look no further than Delphi- most of the material I've gotten from them has been second to none.

I sent them email and they said they don't do any proof reading of their classics and they said they cannot guarantee if there classics will error free in fact they said you will occasionally find a lot of errors in our classics.

I call FUD on that statement. I'd like to see the email before I believe that.
They naturally are unable to proofread EVERY part of their classics (that'd be man-years of reading). They do, however, proofread and pay meticulous attention to the formatting of the major works of an author (the ones you are most likely to read). And they welcome reports of poor formatting, because they fix them and release new, better versions for free if you've already bought them.

Well i will show you email screenshots later if i get time.They said they cannot do proof reading because they will run out of budget and they said they will fix error if you email them but whats the point of paying them and emailing them to fix the error when HarryT can do the same thing more effectively.
