stupid list keeps getting longer  

Not that I have time to read them, but everybody should recommend one classic (or otherwise free) piece of fiction/non-fiction/whatever that I should go download for my e-reader. :)

ereader stuff:
- buy the new DKM book & the rest of the CT books in e-format too O.O SQUEE
- get 1gb SD card
- install updated firmware

vaguely work-related stuff:
- write review
- get boxes for last couple book sets to pack up
- sign up for wfc in britain (when i get paid again)
- go through email & add fanmail addresses to the mailing list
- email the few people who wanted copies of HoF

life stuff:
- citizenship paperwork
- call landlord
- do insurance paperwork
- firebomb my office
- and the bedroom
- and the computer room, for that matter

Ooh, can you give me any kind of title for a Victorian female adventure travel book? That sounds awesome!

not victorian, but just post-victorian - freya stark and gertrude bell were earlier adventurers into the middle east and were influential in shaping western/arab/persian national boundaries and understandings. if any of there stuff is available, it might be worth a read....I've read biographies, not primary source material but ...

I'm currently reading A Woman's Journey Round the World by Ida Pfeiffer. It's worth a cruise around Book Glutton and Project Gutenberg and looking at women authors of the nineteenth century. There's the classic Isabella Bird as well as others...my Stanza reader has been temperamental and at one point I had to delete a lot of stuff, unfortunately including more than a few of the Victorians. Need to redownload it (hell, need to back it up to the Mac which I've not done of late).
