A bunch of stuff from my childhood that's not really available (or is very expensive) including
Wally Cox-My Life as a Small Boy
Any/all Howard Pease books--I'm sure they're pretty politically incorrect, so I'll probably never see them again, but I loved these as a kid

I've mentioned before Sir Winston Churchill's multi-volume, heavy, out of print, hard-to-find in public libraries, history of World War I, the World Crisis -- which I've read is better than his outstanding World War II history.

Justificaton for this post : A fresh search shows World Crisis volume 1 became available, this year, as an uncorrected Canadian optical character recognition scan, at archive.org:

http://archive.org/details/worldcrisis00chur
Yes, thank you for that! A very impressive document; all 445 pages of it!

It's always interesting when new documents come into the public domain. Although, truth be told, not being a big reader of world history I probably won't make the time to read it. But still interesting to know what's available none the less.

It might be fun to re-read some of the Hardy Boys mysteries, by Franklin W. Dixon, that I read as a kid.

I assume they are long out of print, and e-book format would seem to be a logical format for them.

Update: After further research, it turns out that not only are at least some of these books available from Amazon, but there are even some with Kindle versions!

Do your ebooks have any typos or formatting issues due to OCR problems at all?
And do they actually deliver a kindle compatible format like .mobi, or just a file you have to convert yourself?
Yep, 1dollarscan.com. That's what happens when you respond to forum posts when sailing in gusty weather.

No, the results are very good. I received the files in PDF then converted them using Adobe AcrobatX Pro then Calibre (which now has a 64bit version).

Too many to count. All the books I'd love to reread, including some books from my youth. Most are in Dutch.

You got me looking at Mary Stewart on Amazon.com. I only know of 4 books by her and they're available there! Her Arthurian Saga is available as one Kindle book...

Ditto, my feeling exactly only add Romance, Fantasy, Historical and Biography to the genre list. I'm older than Apache and have been reading longer.

Books are my friends and I re-read my favorites often.

To be specific. All of Sergeanne Golon's Angelique series, All of Kathleen Eagle's out of print books, Rebecca Brandewyne's Desperado, All of Mary Stewart's books, All of Victoria Holt's books, the rest of Zane Grey's books, just to name a few.
