    Interesting Reminder the Devil is Still Around

    Although the stories are from years past this is a great reminder that the Devil is still amongst us.

    I had no problems as another reviewer mentioned and appreciate the effort taken in formatting this book for nook. It even has footnotes that are linked.

    Doesn't Work

    At least on my Nook (which has the newest firmware). It appears in the library, but when I try to open it, it just glitches and goes back to the library display page.
    (I gave 1 star, bc you can't leave none; however, it's on account of the technical issue, -obviously- not the material.
