eBooks for the PRS-500

The Plays of Shakespeare

Originally, these three eBooks were combined into a single LRF file. Alas, the heavy formatting combined with the 5+ Megabytes of text was too much for the poor little reader. So, the plays have been broken into the conventional categories.

The Comedies of William Shakespeare

The Tragedies of William Shakespeare

The Histories of William Shakespeare
