nyt Notable books on ebookwise

I have been frustrated at times finding books for my reader. This has as much to do with being able to sort the wheat from the chaff as what is actually available. This morning I decided to go through the 2007 list of the New York Times notable books( and see which could be found at Of the 100 books listed 33 were on ebookwise, which was better than I expected. I chose 2007 because I thought there'd be a greater chance of them being online than a later list.
I hope others find this helpful. Anyway here is the list:
