Sorry, but it just strikes me as completely wasted effort to repost what's already in an omnibus as separate books.

If you want to do it yourself, go ahead .
I guess I could (just download the omnibus). I did download the Professor Challenger Omnibus even though I read "The Lost World" already, if it makes you feel better

Alright, I just downloaded the Sherlock Holmes omnibus

Can I put in a request for "Tale of a Tub" by Jonathan Swift?

I can make LRF files, but I feel kind of like a jerk doing so since I can't covert to anything else.

One book I'd really like to have as an eBook is "The Intellectual Life" by Philip Gilbert Hamerton. 1895 I think. It has became a sort of classic and has been reprinted.

It is available at The Internet Archive here:
http://www.archive.org/details/intel...life00hameuoft
in PDF, djvu, flip book or text formats.

My to-do list is currently rather long but, if no-one else has got there first, I may have a go at converting it in a month or two.

Mine's rather long, too and I have been rather busy lately, so sorry for the "Tale of A Tub" not being uploaded yet. I have begun working on it, but it's quite a toughie and I seem to be desperately in need of time, lately. So please be patient for a little while longer, okay?

Any recomendations for the free downloads?

I'm a new forum member, so I appologise if I have missed the answer to my question in another thread.

I am somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer volume of free e-books available for download and I am looking for some recomendations as to what would be good for me to read.

I will list the authors that I like at the end of this post, but I am interested to know if anyone has read books in the downloads that they would recomend to someone with my tastes. It's probably a big ask, I know.

Also, is there some kind of book club where we pick a book (available from the free downloads), read it and then discuss it? That would be great.

For the following authors, I have read all of their books. This should give a good indication of my likes. It may be that I should forget the free books and keep buying from the authors I like when the e-books are available:

Terry Pratchett
Tom Clancy
Lee Child
Douglas Adams
Philip Pulman
Thomas Harris
Dan Brown
Grant Naylor

I have also read a few books from these authors:

David Baldacci
Stephen Coonts
Michael Crichton
Dale Brown
Robert Harris
Michael Connelly
Robert Ludlum
Stephen Coonts
Ben Elton

Any recomendations greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Dave.

Yes, there is.
The MobileRead Book Club - we've just voted for the next read 'Neptune Crossing' by Jeffrey Carver.

It sounds as though you like thrillers. Have a go at the first volume of my "H. Rider Haggard" anthology; I think you'll find him to be the equal of any modern thriller writer.

I'd second that and tell you that Harry's editions are all very clean and well done.
