HASH(0xa4892474) out of 5 stars Useful reference for classic literature lovers Feb. 28 2012

Penguin Classics Series for Kindle are often quite reasonably priced and generally have the best links to useful notes provided for historical novels and/or foreign translations. It is a real drag, however, to try to separate the gold from the dross by doing a normal search on Amazon.

This catalog - which is FREE - gives page numbers, editors names, and paper book prices and offers several different ways to find exactly what you may be looking for.

How can you go wrong for this price??

HASH(0xa22ea2dc) out of 5 stars Crippled by Lack of Imagination Feb. 21 2012

I was looking forward to this eBook listing of all the Penguin Classics titles currently available. I have been a lover of Penguin books - the Classics series in particular - for most of my 50 years. What a disappointment this book is, though!

Reading the publishers' note, I was encouraged to see them touting the availability of their backlist in eBook form. So when I got to the actual listings, I was taken aback by what I found. There are no active links in this eBook that I can find. Surely this would have been a great sales / marketing tool for Penguin. The very first entry, Flatland by Edward A. Abbott, seemed interesting. But could I tap anywhere to buy it? No. And now I probably will forget about it in the glut of other, far more readily available items I can get to in no time at all. Penguim Classics editos: you have missed a golden opportunity to increase your sales exponentially!

If you want a convenient listing of all the currently available books from this publisher, go ahead and download this item. Otherwise, don't bother and simply go to the Penguin Classics website or search for "penguin classics" in the Kindle Store. *However, there are only a little over 100 titles listed - if you own a Kindle, you're mainly out of luck as this publisher seems to prefer producing eBooks in ePub format. Again, a very poor choice on their part, and it makes you wonder why they bothered putting this list out there in the first place...

All in all, a classic example of how an old media company just doesn't "get" e-publishing at all. Very sad.

*My thanks to Andromeda for pointing out a serious error in the original review. Let's hope you're right, Andromeda, and these are all just teething pains. But it does still illustrate how far behind traditional publishers are in the digital publishing game.

This book is simply a catalog for the Penguin Classics series. If you like books and you like catalogs then you will probably find this annotated listing a page-turner. I like both; this listing is just fun to peruse. I did give it four stars because of the wide variance in the annotations. Some books receive a half-page description while others get no description.

As far I can see, it looks to be a good listing.
