It would be lovely if this were corrected. Calumet "K" By Samuel Merwin and Henry Kichell Webster Read by Betsie Bus...

[wrong/missing parts] mystery of edwin drood [M4B fixed]

I am attempting to download the book The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens. Part 1 downloads OK but part 2 does not. It appears that the Part 1 file is sent instead of the Part 2 file, so that Part 2 is unavailable. How can this be corrected?

FIXED [Skipped Chapters?] Moon & Sixpence

Hello

On 22 December I emailed you with a query:

“This morning I was enjoying “The Moon and Sixpence” on your site, but after chapter 3, it seems to skip to chapter 7. Are the chapters in the wrong order or have some been missed?”

Have you had a chance to investigate this?

Thank you.
