No comment on any of that.

Moving on. The below book is another high ranker. It's a trend that I've been following. People... er... "publishers" (fake ones) take books in the public domain that are most likely put out by big houses like Penguin, Random House, etc. The "publishers" perhaps scan them in (or somehow get the text) and create new crappy covers to go with the text so that they don't break any copyright laws. Then they pocket the money. And when I say crappy, I think that's a safe statement to make. I think I should give it a go. Perhaps I could make a boat load of money doing it!
