A Great Big Bundle of Classic Comfort Reading,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and All Things Wise and Wonderful: Three James Herriot Classics (Kindle Edition)
James Herriot's stories of life as a Yorkshire vet need no introduction -- they must be among the most beloved books of all time. Now at long last they're available in e-book form. I got mine this afternoon and I'm happy to say that they are fully formatted with chapter stops and the text is clean and proofread. There's also a nice introductory essay by the author's son, and a bio at the end. The table of contents includes links to the introduction, the front cover of each of the three books, and the bio; to get to chapters within an individual book, you have to select that book from the table of contents, then click forward a few pages to get to that book's own table of contents, which is a little less convenient than being able to reach all the chapter stops from the main table of contents.
Getting the first three books bundled together at a reasonable price is a perfect early holiday gift to us all!

Dan, I posted the day after receiving it, and the sections I browsed were all clean. Yeah, further in I've hit some typos and missing end punctuation -- I hope that the reason the book is unavailable is that they've pulled it to clean it up!
It's not nearly as bad as some of the Kindle releases I've seen from major publishers, but still.
