    Fonts not adjustable

    Older eyes really need adjustable fonts. With only a single font size available on this book, it turned out to be a waste of 99 cents. A shame, it looks like a nice selection!

    Might be better off downloading the free versions 1 at a time.

    Yes it is a collection of these old mysteries but it has several formatting problems. You get to each book from the contents and the contents is only by title, no authors. The font is not adjustable. One reason I read the Nook is to make the font larger. It did not want to let me read the beginning of Moonstone. I had to keep putting in later page numbers till it got one that it would open it. Misses the first few pages of the book.

    Crashed My Nook!

    This book crashed my Nook! I suspected something was wrong as the fonts looked all weird on my device, and now cannot restart my Nook at all.

    Missing key parts

    There are supposed to be illustrations and a floorplan in one of the stories, but in this ebook there is nothing there. In addition, navigation is difficult for me.

    Wonderful selection of material but the method of indexing in these anthologies leaves something to be dedired

    The variety of selection is positively wonderful. To be able to locate a specific book out of 9 and 12 (1000) pages with going from page to page in the toc would be extremely helpful and appreciated. Categories, and subcategories. Perhaps Author (titles), Genre (Author>Titles) This should be the easy breezy part of organizing the information in this Tech Saavy world of ours. C'Mon BN! We love you, we will continue to shope with you, but if we run across a large selection of (compillations/anthologies) books, that are organized well and give us several options for perusing their content we may just have to start getting out books elswhere. We hope that you hear our pain, suffering, and pleas to make this small improvement to keep up ecstatically HAPPY! Happy Hollidays!

    Mystery buff

    If you're a mystery buff like me, you'll love this book. I bought this because I wanted to reread Sherlock Holmes and compare him with Dr. House (from the House t.v. series). They are both likable in spite of their (many) flaws.

    Infuriating

    It would be a wonderful deal if you could actually access the books! The only books it seems to want to let me open are the Sherlock Holmes books. It is very frustrating. Don't waste your money.

    Technical problem?

    Oddly enough, trying to read page 1628(ish) causes both my Nook and my Nook for PC application to shut down. Can read if I skip past the "Moonstone" cover page. Otherwise, getting to re-read the classics is wonderful! But over 7000 pages? Really?
