Free book (Copia ADE-ePub) Pride & Prejudice Annotated Edition [Classics]

Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, is available free in a new annotated edition with full-length margin notes/commentary by noted Austen scholar and University of Virginia professor of English Susan Fraiman.

Apparently this is an ADE-ePub version which you will need to browse in the special Copia Reader app (available for desktop and tablets) to see the full notes. Presumably it'll just work as an ordinary edition of P&P if you load it up on your regular reader, but hopefully a nicely proofread and formatted one.

Anyway, if you're interested, here's the page for it on Copia's website and they've apparently also some free football guide by a known sportswriter as well, and have apparently replaced some of their older PDF former freebies with ePub copies.

Description (I skipped the P&P regular intro blurb; I figure you all know what the story's about already)
This Copia Edition of Pride and Prejudice is fully annotated by Susan Fraiman, professor of English at the University of Virginia and noted Austen scholar. Using the Copia eReader, Austen fans can read Fraiman's lively and illuminating notes right in the margins of the book.

Ever wonder what shoe roses are? How to tell a phaeton from a barouche? Would you like to know why Austen's opening sentence is so famous? Why Lydia Bennet is key to the conclusion? Well-versed in the debates that animate critics, familiar with the issues that fascinate students, Fraiman takes up all these questions and more with insight, clarity, and humor.

This edition will appeal to those already on a first-name basis with Jane as well as to those just getting to know her, and is ideal for book clubs, classrooms, and inquiring readers everywhere.

Anyone know how to find the ebook after one has ploughed through the registration process and finally downloaded it?

I've got their wretched desktop reader, but I want to read it on my Sony.

I don't know if it's got DRM on it, but the book itself should be in your documents folder under Copia Library. Look in the books subfolder (under copia library) and you should find the book there.

Go to Settings, purchase History and use the download button to get the ACSM to load into Sony or ADE.

You can then uninstall the wretched reader.

Fun FREE edition of Pride & Prejudice

I found something really fun at Copia. I’ve gotten free copies of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen from many places, but Copia’s free version has an extra bonus. They had a college professor who specializes in Jane Austen add over 100 notes into the text. The notes only show up when you read it on their ereader, but when you do, the notes show up on the side of the text so you can read them alongside the book. It’s like pop-up video, but for books! I normally read ebooks on my nook, but this one was worth reading through their app.

You can find the book here: http://www.thecopia.com/catalog/deta...?catId=8999666

You're a bit late. There was already a thread here about it.

Thanks, Crich70 and Koland.

I did find the folder, but looking at the books I really didn't like their formatting, and don't have time to do it properly.
