Non-Fiction CD Set Expanded from 4 to 5 CDs
I just updated our Non-Fiction CD set — that was a long battle. It has expanded from 4-CDs to 5, and now includes 5635 books. Complete table of contents at http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/nonfictioncd.html Price for all 5 = $99. (Update price, if you bought this set from us before = $10 per CD = $50; gandfathered until the end of August = $40, see below for details).
CD #1 of this set is the same as our US History CD http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/ushistory.html which sells separately for $25.
And CD #5 of this set is the same as our Victorian Science and Technology CD http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/vic.html which also sells separately for $25.

Update policy: As new public domain books become available in electronic form, we expand our existing CDs, adding dozens, sometimes hundreds of books. If you buy a CD or DVD directly from us, you have the right to buy up to 4 updates of that same CD or DVD, for the update price of just $10 per CD http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/cdupdate.html or $30 per DVD http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/dvdupdate.html. The updated CD or DVD includes all the books, not just the new ones; so you could give the old one to a friend or school or library. Just indicate which CD(s) you want in the comment section of the order form. The Non-Fiction set normally counts as 5 CDs, but because many of you originally bought it when it was a 4-CD set, until the end of August, the update will be just $40. So go to http://samizdat.stores.yahoo.net/cdupdate.html enter 4 as the quantity and note that you want the Non-Fiction.
Suggestions always welcome.
