Sorry, but I think that Finnegan's Wake is probably one of the least-read and least popular classics of all. I did know a chess master who loved it and thought it was hilarious, and certainly Marshall McLuhan quoted it quite often to good effect. American generally don't appreciate poetry, and I think that it can be argued that Finnegan's Wake is a big poem.
I'd agree with that.

Finnegan's Wake is currently ranked #23,087, so now it legitimately belongs on the list. I'll be honest, I can't stand reading James Joyce. I'd rather read the dictionary than Joyce. And, I'm of Irish decent. Yet arguing that Finnegan's Wake doesn't belong on a list of classics is really kind of silly.

Hi, just checked and Shogun is now available in Mobi from cyberread. ($6.74 with their 25% discount code)

Not Kindle though, AFAICS, how strange!

What about "Silence of the Lambs" - appears to be the only Hannibal novel not available.

Unfortunately, nothing came off the list this month, but I did add several of poohbear's recommendations.

I check them all at the start of each month. None on the list had ebook versions on Dec. 1st, but Nov. 1st a couple had been converted to ebooks.

I e-mailed Harper Collins (UK) regarding Fahrenheit 457 and got a reply back today. I asked when it would be available for Kindle and they replied saying that it went out of print in 2005. That wasn't my question
