On the main page there is a link labeled browse. Click that and on the next 
page click categories. On the next page click literature and fiction. You 
will then have a list of all books in the collection that have been 
categorized under literature and fiction. At the top of the list is a combo box 
for 
sorting by how recent they were added to the collection. Select in the last 
day and you will have a list of fiction added in the last twenty-four hours.

Boy. My internet has been down for most of two days now. I'm just 
getting back up and running. The tech just left. Thought I was back 
in the dark ages.

Anyway. I already get Johnny's messages which are great. I like to 
pull up the list from the BS website though because it's easy to just 
go down the list and download the ones' I'm interested in. It would 
be nice if we goode filter the latest books list and pull up just 
fiction or nonfiction, etc. Who would we contact to make that 
sugestion to BS staff does anybody know?
