I don't know if it's just me or if anyone else has had problems downloading Cecilia: Memoirs of an Heiress by Fanny Burney? I've tried several times over the past 3 days and after it seems like the download is complete there is nothing there. I get an error message saying the file is corrupted. Any suggestions? Thank You. beckah_72@comcast.net

It's a big zip file (almost a GB) and they tend to get corrupted if the download gets interrupted even briefly. You might try using a download manager. Downthemall is a popular choice if you use Firefox as your web browser, but there are a variety of free ones available that you can download. The other alternative is to download the files individually, but for 107 chapters that would be a chore.

Thank You so much for the suggestion - I'll give the down load manager a try. I was getting frustrated & grateful that I can try something else.

I'm going to go ahead and mark this resolved. If anyone else has problems downloading this, we may try to divide the zip up by the Book ##'s so it's easier to download.

If this continues to be problem, feel free to post here again and we'll work on this.

Thanks!
