Apology, Crito And Phaedo Of Socrates by Plato
The Golden Sayings Of Epictetus
Meditations of Marcus Aurelius

I have taken liberties with each part of this volume.

In Plato I have changed all of the "AE" as single character to an "AE' as double character as this glyph is not in the Sony Reader base fonts.

In Epictetus I have identified each golden saying as a subtitle because many of them are just one line or two lines long and it seemed a waste to use a full page just for that. There are well over 150 of them.

For Marcus Aurelius I have edited out most of the Greek letters as they too are not part of the Sony Reader font. I may have missed some. If you find them, please write.

I do not feel that these changes will take away from the enjoyment of the texts for most people.

Oh my, you have been very reckless with the text! ;-)
But seriously, I think those are good choices. I might miss the greek letters, but what are you going to do if they don't display properly anyway?

This is very exciting to see the HC volumes popping out like this!!!!
