I love these poems so i bought it for my nook, however, it will only allow me to read the sample version even after i purchased it. Do not buy this addition, i did thinking that if it was sponsored by b&n that it wouldn't be so useless.

The verses get five stars from me; the presentation, one. A scandal t'is that OCR's So glitched poor Housman's fun. The headers cut each verse in twain The lines lie torn and rent How cruel to make him die again! Needlessly violent. But hope lives on, for pristine text Of "Shropshire Lad" is free On Project Gutenberg, the home Of Housman fans like me.

These are classic poems, rather old-fashioned (they actually rhyme). Well formatted for the Nook.
