    Great bang for the buck

    Wow, i got 9 novels and 24 short stories for $1.99 how do you beat that. The hypertext is limited to only the table of contents to each novel or short story and at the first page of each novel or short story you can go back to the contents. I loved the Lttle Fuzzy novel but i wish it had the whole Fuzzy series in here. i dont see the other Fuzzy books in NOOK format yet. It does have 4 of the federation series. (Ulers uprising, 4 day planet, cosmic computer, space viking) does not have Federation or Empire. that would have been nice to have all 6 of the Federation series. The sci fi is dated as to be expected but that was part of the charm for me as a sci fi hard core follower. One funny example is the scientist still using slide rulers to do thier calculations on. Also in cosmic computer the computer has to be bigger then any other computer since it's smarter. I guess they didnt realize size doesnt matter. Well worth the price. it did seem slow on my nook opening up and settting book marks but for $2 it's hard to complain as long as you can read it. oh , also they left out all the illustrations in one of the books, i was disapointed to see a bunch of <illustation> tags but no pictures. The pictures would have beeb great to see.

    Good value, but hard to read

    The selection of stories is excellent. The value in so many stories in one volume is very great. Unfortunately , the size of the volume, at1610 pages, exceeds the buffering capability of my NOOK application, which has repeatedly reported that the reading app has stopped working while going through this volume. It will get better as newer app versions are released, I hope.
