Can't View "Tales of the Jazz Age" by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

I was going to download this from your uploads, but when I did, I noticed the file was a .rar file, even though it is listed as LRF. Is there something I am missing? I really wanted to download this because it has the short story "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" in it. Is there anywhere else to download it for free in the .lrf format?

.rar is a compressed file, like a .zip file. To decompress it, you'll need something like WinRAR.

Don,

Would you happen to know the difference between this vesrion and the one that is for sale? Thanks in advance for any help.

The one for sale is more expensive.
(And probably Don's is better formatted)

Any book you find here will be better formatted than those cheapo copies you would find on Amazon or other sites.

Our book uploaders take a great deal of pride in their work.

I think that the books from the sony Store often have an inconveniently small font, and the quality of the proofreading is variable.
The Sony Classics are automatic conversions and, to my mind, often very poorly done.
I must say that I find Don's (Dr Drib's) uploads are of a consistently high quality.

So, besides the fact that it's free, is there any other difference like content (more or less) and the formatting?

There is a difference in the content, the one's presented here have more proofreading than most commercial versions.

In answer to the specific concern, no, they are the same story. The MR versions are not shortened or abridged versions. In fact, many of Patricia's books have sections in them that were removed from modern versions because they offended the editors or publishers. They are the most exact versions of the original material available.

Some, such as Harry's Dickens collection are far superior to any other version available either in paper or electronic form.

I think Dr. Dribbles must be starting an "All F. Scott Fitzgerald All The Time" book club. If there are words of his that Don has not posted, mostly in the last couple of days, I am not aware of them. Thank you!

And besides, you can contribute to the proofreading here! If you spot any mistake, typo or error, you can tell the uploader and he/she will be happy to fix it as soon as possible.
