That's a GREAT Idea, Ray! I like it a LOT. Please feel free to post
your Newton Press sources for A Christmas Carol to the Info-Newt FTP site
and I'll start put them together with the books they are the source for.

I'll do that for any book anyone wants to post, or even the reformatted
text documents for Paperback (I usually take Project Gutenberg texts into
BBEdit Lite and unwrap the text using their handy unwrap-text command
before running 'em thru Paperback.)

With Steve Weyer's plug-in for Newt's Cape to read PalmDoc books, I might
even have to start a section for those.... ;-)
