This is 50 full-length books, fiction and nonfiction, for $2.99. All of the books are out of copyright, which is why they're so cheap. Such a long list will inevitably have some books you own and others you wouldn't want to read, but I found many here that I like. There's also a companion Volume Two with 50 more books.

This collection appears in your Nook's library as a single book, about 15,000 pages long. You can bring up any particular title by clicking on it in the table of contents, which worked fine on my Nook, but there are a few tricks I figured out that make it easier to use. First, the Nook shows only the total number of pages in the book, so you can't easily see how many pages you have to go in the book that you're reading. The solution is to note down the page number where the next book in the series starts to help you keep track. Also, I put a bookmark in any book I'm reading so I can find it again if I accidentally navigate away from it.

This e book is supposed to have a searchable TOC can't find it on my nook and can only see the first three books. All of these titles are available for free on line but bought it for the searchable index, but it doesn't have one. After having the book for a couple of eweeks, I finally found the searchable TOC. It is on the very last page. Hope that helps anyone who might buy this book.

    So many, many typos = disappointment

    So far, I have read "Anne of Green Gables" from this collection. It has a shocking number of typographic errors. They include hyphenated words in mid-line, quote marks in random places, and words that end with several question marks. Some pages have several typos. It seems like the book was scanned then never shown to an editor. I hope other books in this collection do not share this flaw. I would expect a book seller (B&N) to take more care with their products. Good value, yes. Flawless, no.
