I found this "Six-Pack" by R,M. Ballantyne a bargain I simply could not resist. I have rad all of these, most as a pre-teen, and Robinson Crusoe was read to me by a parent who felt that children should be read books during their formative years that will shape their tastes. And so did many of these: The Shipwrecked Six Pack contains \Robinson Crusoe, Gulliver's Travels, The Swiss Family Robinson, The Coral Island: A Tale of the Pacific Ocean, Treasure Island and more in this illustrated "Six Pack Classics Book 2" edition for Kindle. Buy these, and find out if your inner child remains within. Read them to yourself, or to anyone you hold dear. R. M. Ballantyne et al are doing a great service to the reading public, reissuing wonderful books at a pittance for your Kindle.
Thought I'd browse Amazon (once again) and see what illustrated classics could be had for a song and pass it on. Short of grabbing the freebies put together by a group of volunteers (always an iffy proposal as to quality) you could easily spend a buck or more per title on this grouping if purchased separately, or save yourself the time, trouble and expense by grabbing this collection of classics with both an active table of contents and a nifty image gallery including first edition title pages, fine engravings, author portraits and more. Very good reads and leaves me feeling like I saved myself a fiver even if the package bumps up to 99 cents so I'd call it a deal!
