Just got a Kindle. I see a ton of packages for a few dollars, and I'm happy to pay. But, when I read reviews, I also see a lot of criticism of spelling errors etc. Which versions have you found to be the best?

My favorite source is usually the Patricia Clark Memorial Library on mobileread forums. The uploaders go to great effort to proofread and format them: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/ebooks.php?forumid=128

Here on amazon, the Delphi Classics are usually pretty good. They aren't free but are very inexpensive. For example: Delphi Complete Works of Charles Dickens (Illustrated)

I should also give credit to all of the generous volunteers at Project Gutenberg. They go through a detailed proofreading process through their Distributed Proofreaders service, explained here: http://www.pgdp.net/c/ . Also, if interested in volunteering, this is where you'll find out how to do so. Because the work is done piecemeal by numerous volunteers, the quality isn't always consistent but it's still a wonderful resource.
