    I wasted my money on this and hope others will heed my warning and not buy this edition. It has a lot of great stories in it but there is no way to scroll up or down the list to pick and chose which story you wish to read. thus you must page thru several hundred pages to get to any story in the last half of the book. I far as I am concerned this e-book is worthless and unuseable. I only gave this book one star because I had to in order to place this review, it is not worth even one star.
