There's One Born Every Minute
Teleread reports on public domain price gouging (Public domain classics priced to make Jack Valenti smile). Apparently, eReader.com will provide you 250 public domain ebooks for the low, low, low price of $995. Act now and for $1,495 you can get 500 titles (aka the "Gold" edition)! Purchase the Educational Classics Collection CD now! Operators are standing by:
In a move designed to give schools an affordable way to use eBook technology, eReader.com and Lightning Source Inc. developed The Classics Collection CD, a comprehensive collection of 500 titles that includes "The Red Badge of Courage," by Stephen Crane, "Little Women," by Louisa May Alcott, "Night and Day," by Virginia Woolf, the works of William Shakespeare, and other books commonly found on middle and high school reading lists.
This collection provides schools with a cost-effective way to easily distribute eBooks to students. The eBooks cannot be lost, stolen, or damaged, and the license entitles the school to internally distribute as many copies of the eBooks as it wants, as many times as it wants.
Or, you could download the works via Project Gutenberg
for free or, for a very modest fee, get a CD from Blackmask Online
And don't forget to proof a page or two, okay?
