Verne, Jules: Around the World in 80 Days. v2, 24 Feb 2008
Yet another Verne classic, "Around the World in 80 Days". This book describes the eventful journey of an English gentleman, Mr Phileas Fogg, and his manservant, Passepartout, as they attempt to go around the world in 80 days to win a large wager.

Added Kindle navigation
I re-converted this from Gutenberg, mostly to add Kindle joystick navigation. The original conversion by HarryT is superior in some points, especially formatting of the chapter headers, but my Kindle didn't navigate on it. So take your pick. The text should be the same.
This was converted from Gutenberg's HTML via Calibre to EPUB, where i did minor editing using Sigil, then coverted again, using Calibre, to MOBI format. I used the first edition's cover as cover image.
