Here's a link to Ethan Frome in our own library: PRC

There isn't an epub there strangely enough. So I'll add a Gutenberg link for it: EPUB

Forget the Gutenberg ePub. It's machine generated and pretty poor. Better for someone to hand craft an ePub.

Reading list is cleared for December, would love to give this a try (again). Cold Comfort Farm sounds great and I see it got it's third nomination along with I, Robot--both of which I would enjoy. I would also like to nominate Little Women. It has a wonderful theme of family and charity, making it a good read for the holiday season. It is available free from Gutenberg or the MobileRead library.

Don't forget to check behind me, everyone, to make sure I don't miss a 2rd or a 3rd of your nominated book.

I will use my second nomination to "second" Little Women.

In the first post where you list the books that have 3 nominations along with the links where to get them, you left out the Overdrive links. I would appreciate your adding them in as they are rather important since I, Robot is available for free outside the US.

I'll nominate The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K.Chesterton.

This is probably Chesterton's best-known novel. It is a wild, surreal, Kafka-esque work which differs from Kafka in that it shows that the apparently whirling chaos actually does have a centre. About.Com describes this classic as

" . . . a book caught up in the question of whether it places itself inside or outside of the sphere of its narrative chaos, yet at the same time a book perfectly content to lose itself in that chaos and, borne by the momentum of its own energy, to keep upping the narrative and metaphysical ante until the end--no matter the cost."

"The story is told within a frame of 'real life' opening with a grim and lurid sunset in Saffron Park where the hero, a poet named Gabriel Syme, has come to a social discussion group . . . He meets another poet, an anarchist, who has an intelligent sister. The two poets argue . . . then as they leave the meeting to walk home, they fall into a wild adventure upon which hinges the fate of London."

The novel involves "sword fights and a mad chase across . . .London, . . . a love story" and blends "the format of an adventure/detective story. . . "

From The Outline of Sanity by Alzina Stone Dale

It's a remarkable allegory loaded with remarkable ideas.

It's in the Public Domain and available right here at Mobile Read.

Is there an actual description of the book instead of about.com's non-description?

Yeah - it was a link in desperation because I wanted an ePub link and I didn't want to hunt around too much.

If I needed ePub I would convert the PRC in Calibre myself rather than download that ePub.
