IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a very large anthology, and some people have experienced trouble navigating the work. To find each work in the anthology, you must go to the "Go To" section of your Nook, and then select "Chapter." It might get a blank screen--if it does, then hit the page forward button and the work will appear. This has confused some readers, and we are sorry for the inconvenience. Please also note that only the first three books will show when you are previewing a selected work. To view all 50 titles, you must buy the entire book.

50 Classic Books: Volume One 3.9 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 906 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
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.

I erred in my review for Volume II and can't change it now so let me correct it here: these are both great deals and highly recommended. I erred in my earlier review because Volume II's Table of Contents isn't as readily apparent as the one for Volume I. If you want to get a quick down-and-dirty library at little cost, these are both terrific.

I love it, instead of buying each classic separately you can own a good number of them in both volumes I would like the entire series, if you love classics this a very wonderful edition to any library, in nook format or in book format. enjoy reading...

I was so disappointed when I found out our library had almost no books to "checkout" on the Nook and that it's quite a hassle (and I live in Orange County, CA so not a small library system). Bought too many books right away with the Nook (so easy to keep grabbing the next book in a series so I was spending twice as much on books with the Nook... THEN I found these tow inexpensive collections of Classics. I'd forgotten how cool Dracula and 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea were, I'm working my way thru all 100 and it's a blast and inexpensive!!! I think there's actually a Two and a Half Men episode where one character has a meltdown in a bookstore (Alan) because he's never read all the classics and now I get the point. Enjoy. Best money you'll spend on your Nook - by the time you get thru all 100 you'll feel like buying the Nook was a great life goal!

I am a little confused as to how you can include The Afterglow which is the 3rd of a series, but not include the other 2. Would've been nice if this was a downloadable "shelve" so it was all separated out and easier to navigate instead of one big volume, but for $3 it's hard to complain too much. Just a suggestion. If you want to feel well-read or just in general superior to others who haven't read many if any of these books, it's worth the download.

I really love this series of books, and even though it's sometimes hard to find each book if you know how to use your Nook really good it becomes super easy. I love all of the books and I think they make for a great Classic read.

Although I haven't finished reading all the "stories" in this collection, they truly are classics. From childhood adventures to tales of who done its to what was done; plus many, many words of wisdom. Something that can be read again and again.

This book is a wonderful deal and well worth reading no matter who you are. Be sure to get volume two as well. If you've never read any classics, you should try this inexpensive book out. Some people have reported having problems with the download. It downloaded fine for me, but since it is a very large book it did take a while longer to download than other books.

Great collection of classic stoties at a great price,
Jowo More than 1 year ago
Very readable. Interestingly tells a tale of modern man's ennui (maybe male menopause) and it's ramifications. Timeless, in that, with a few exceptions, it could easily have taken place 50 years after the true setting, but it doesn't achieve the universality to which it may have aspired.

I downloaded this on my Nook version 1.5 and love it! The Table of Contents is right in the front where it's supposed to be and it is, in fact, active.

Well worth the cost! I downloaded vol 2 first and it worked fine on my own wi-fi. But during the download of vol 1, I probably interrupted the download and it wouldn't open. I went to Barnes and Noble in Charlottesville and they fixed in in a very short time by archiving and then downloading again. In their store the download was extremely fast compared to my much slower home system. Love my Nook! Got a 28 dollar book for Christmas that could have been bought for 9.99 as am ebook. Also, I can read the print much better on a Nook than in a regular book.

I love the collection and enjoy reading these old favorits, however the editing is very poor.
Lara Oliver More than 1 year ago
I bought this volume on a whim while waiting for my coffee and its excellent. So far I have reread Anne of Green Gables and The Idiot. A great resource for anybody that likes the classics but doesnt want them cluttering your shelves. It looks like the issue of no direct links to the works in the content section has been resolved but you still need to turn the page to get to the content.

I have downloaded this anthology and it did take about 15 minutes total while I was at a McDonalds. If you go to a certain chapter, as the overview says, and you do not see the book, hit page forward and it will appear. I just tried it and it works. This is a great way of getting all the classics at a very affordable price.
