How do I find the Harvard "Great Books" at MobileRead?

I saw somewhere that MR has some kind of Harvard great books collection. Can somebody tell me how to find it? Thanks.

If you mean Harvard Classics, they're in the eBooks section (Patricia Clark Memorial Library). Below is a link to advanced search results for that section using the keyword "Harvard" for the subject line...

I'm moving this to the Recommended Forum, since it's not a question to do with writing.

Thanks eschwartz. Lot of good stuff there. I found an author index file there (to make it easier to find stuff) but it's an .imp file. Know how to open that? (Remember I'm Linux.)

I think at this point .imp is a rather exotic format. Are you sure there isn't an EPUB or MOBI available?

I just ran across the .imp. I'll look closer. Thanks.

Although not free, it might as well be at this price:

That's a great price, especially if you get the illustrations included.
Too bad I went for a Kobo instead of a Kindle...

The book is DRM-free, so it would be very easy to convert to ePub.

I just looked as the sample on Amazon and the paragraphs all run together. It would need to be edited in order to fix this. No idea what else is wrong with that version.

That's strange. I bought this and I didn't find any problem, if my memory is correct.

If there was a problem, I'm sure I ran it through calibre, but I can't remember.

I just checked my copy:

I checked "remove spacing between paragraphs," which also automatically set the indent for each paragraph.
