Emily Dickinson (complete) for Kindle?

Okay, I'm nuts about Emily dickinson. I'd love to have a complete collection of her works on my Kindle.

I found a free .mobi file of it, but it didn't look right on my kindle and it's very difficult to navigate.

Can anyone reccommend a good ebook that contains ALL of Emily's works? There are some for .99 cents Kindle edition on Amazon but I'm not sure if they contain all the poems (it didn't say).

It's okay if I have a pay a little. I just want something that I can read/navigate through easily.

Why don't you create such a book yourself and upload it here? That way we'd all benefit.

Yes, why don't you collect and compile all 1,775 of Dickinson's extant poems. And make sure you try to keep faithful to the writer's intent, keep track of the copy-text, try not to "correct" the "funny" punctuation, and order them in a way that makes sense. Oh, and try not to violate any copyright accompanying any reference that you might use.

Sounds like a very worthwhile project to me.

Time is of much less importance than doing a good job. Eg, I could create an eBook version of one of my Dickens books from PG source in 10 minutes, but it wouldn't bear comparison with what I've actually posted here, which is typically the result of 100+ hours of work per book.

Better to spend the time to do it right than to rush out an unfinished botched job.

Well, first off, I'm a full-time student and I don't think I'd have the time to dedicate to properly putting together the book. I love Emily Dickinson as well, but I don't think I have the know-how to put her works together properly in an ebook without messing everything up.

I may make something someday, but certainly not now.
Thanks for the help though guys

I hope you checked out the link above. You might find some alternatives there that might be acceptable, if not perfect, for you.

Yes, indeed, it does take a lot of time to make a well-formatted ebook which has minimal errors. I was just teasing about hurrying up. I know that there have been many times when I've downloaded free ebooks from various sources, only to find that there are duplicated paragraphs, missing paragraphs, etc.
