So to make a long story short my paternal grandfather came early with birthday money (he shows up on birthdays and holidays with money) so mom had me buy my birthday present on Amazon. As I was checking out I found out this!! How did I miss this?? Needless to say we will be taking full advantage of this!

Riveted_Reader_Melissa That‘s wonderful! Every little bit helps! 2d

A good book, I was a little disappointed with the main character's plot development. #China #love

This book is so fascinating! Middle para here sounds EXACTLY like what our biggest corporations are doing now...ahem-#amazon-ahem...

I know I get down on Amazon a LOT and I do have my reasons. But for all our Amazon devotes out there, you should read this before you buy any “classic“ literature in print or in Kindle. It's really interesting.


sudi Thanks for sharing this article, but i think this applies to so many other classics as well. Since i live in India, anytime i search for a classic on amazon these copies are the first thing that shows up in the search. And the one published by a well known publisher will be at the bottom. If these copies have so many errors and copyright issues, they shouldn't be advertised at top of the page. 1mo
Mdargusch Fascinating and sad. I‘ve been afraid to buy many products from amazon because fake articles are produced and sold as the real thing and how do you know? 1mo
