5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for dollar, and TOC and line break problems appear to have been fixed, May 17, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, all six volumes, with active table of contents, improved 2/1/2011 (Kindle Edition)
This is an enormous amount of content and value for just 99 cents. Regarding this Kindle edition: I have purchased a number of inexpensive books on the Kindle, and as I have posted elsewhere, I feel that getting great works at cheap prices is one of the great things the Kindle enables. This Kindle version of Gibbon is fine - the table of contents are active, the formatting looks good to me at all of the font sizes. In reading the comments to the prior review, it sounds like the publisher made these changes in response to comments.

I completely agree. In addition, the search capabilities of Kindle books are unbelievably good. Kindle should be fantastic for academics, especially

I completely agree too.

Project Gutenberg books are available also in my language (Finnish, 500 books). But other books seem to be almost unavailable in Finnish.
