That is it for now. I count titles. Is that right? I have them listed if somebody wants to see. Hi there. I was excited to stumble upon this group while trying to find a definitive, yet elusive list for the RD World's Best Reading series. I would like to possibly add another title to your ever-growing total of Though it doesn't state its being a part of the 'World's Best Reading' series, I own a condensed bible that came with 70 or so other 'new' RD titles in an ebay auction a few years ago. The book's measurements are exactly the same as the other books, as is the gilt lettering on the spine.
The only differences being that it does not state 'Reader's Digest' on the spine like the others. For those interested. The bible is maroon in colour with pages. The covers are embossed with names of different passages - Romans, Proverbs, Titus, etc. The isbn number is one similar sounding to mine is listed on AddALL. The copyright is perhaps this was the first release in the series? If it isn't, it sure doesn't look out of place next to the other titles.
Hope this helps. Hi, Been struggling to collect a few of these books over past few years, I own about forty. One aspect not mentioned in your wonderful thread is the guarentee! What more could you wish for?
Response to Message 47 I also called the phone to RD that you mentioned. I also stated that I got one off of RD. In any event, after getting some explanation, I signed up and had received My Antonia as my free book. More are to come every other month. We'll keep our fingers crossed. Personally, I thought it was a rather ingenious way for RD to promote its latest subscription products. I've also got a few calls in over at the Special Collector's Editions department of the Franklin Library as part of my effort to track this one down!
My current theory is that it may have simply been a plug for RD's World's Best Aretharing series instead! Either that, or it was subtly promoting sales of the Marcus Clarke title in this series. I had to listen to the RD mantra infomercial that told me about the exciting new titles like Here is another number I came across.
I spoke with someone in an attempt to find out what I really signed up for earlier. They stated that I would receive a title approximately every two months, and that title would depend upon availability. I took that to mean possibly a new title or if none are available or issued, then I would receive backstock, reprints, etc. That was about as clear as it got out of the mud and into the heavy fog Here's the number and the details: "For assistance with a product order our representatives may be contacted at anytime between am to pm eastern or on Saturday from am to pm eastern. Hey Lotofwhiskers.
RD can now send you anything they like. To save a few bucks as I have heard them called in the movies! Further, when you have all volumes you are free to cancel or start over. What do you say? I'll have to get back to you on that! James Michener - Tales of the South Pacific 2. BTW, you do indeed get to choose which book you want, plus I also warranty that I'll never, ever send you the same book twice! Novak also got that wrong! It's a bisexual fee. I'm sorry, I meant for those times when I receive high call volumes. Yeah, that's the ticket!
I don't think they thang that thong. No I'm not kidding! Jim Mitchell, UK. That sounds like the one everyone is after! It appears RD is now playing tracks from The Who 's wonderful canon in order to coax folk into buying its latest offerings in the WBR series while they're on hold. Here is just a sample of RD's current play list Carpin' 'bout my indentation I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation Carpin' 'bout my indentation I'm just lookin' for f-fair compensation Lookin' for fair compensation This is my flawed condition So where's my compensation, eBay?
And here's another song I had to sit through whilst waiting for one of RD's expertly trained operators to come on the line to assist me You think your books look pretty good together You think your books are made of leather But they're a substitute for real leather books They're all pretty slick but it's just faux looks The leather boards you see are all fabricated They look pretty real, but they're just fake-plated, yeah Substitute your Pasternak It costs little more than the paperback It looks alright, but you don't know jack That fine looking book is really made out of sack You were born with an RD book on your shelf 'The World's Best Reading' pleasing you, each tome adding to your wealth Now I'm here to tell you it's all a lie Faux crocodile boards are what you buy Since there's a genuine problem, you shouldn't try To place a bid at all, you should pass it by, pass it by Substitute a Verne for the Wren Substitute a Twain with the Crane Substitute your Buck with the Wouk At least you'll get some reading done Edited to add links to video footage of the original songs.
RD has just called, no! Roger Daltry! Says he wants a word with you!! Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. I was under the mistaken impression that this forum was serious about the subject. To quote Frank Muir someone that is known the world over as being totally humorless : "The bun is the lowest form of wheat!
People who don't get much sex in their lives tend to become very puritanical in their views and point fingers at everyone else accusing them of being sex maniacs and perverts that should be locked away on the basis that if they're not getting any then no one else should be allowed to get any either. Similarly, people that are truly witless are usually the first ones to make a statement like the one you just made.
However, for the most part the posts on this thread have all been pretty serious and very informative on that topic. If some of the posters here have entertained at the same time as they informed then readers should view that as being simply an added bonus Unless, of course, the reader is witless; in which case there was no extra pudding for him. BTW, am I correct in detecting a note of sarcasm in that sneering statement of yours?
Oh my … what should readers make of that? Who exactly is your anger directed against and why? Or did you just post here to get some attention? Been awhile since I posted a message so here goes, Rule 42 sorry you have had a hard time getting through to WBR. I called on a Sunday afternoon around 4: PM. I was never put on hold, maybe you can try then. I hope this helps and it is good to see WBR still printing these books. Great job Rule 42, I would like to add one more. Dracula by Bram Stroker I seen it on EBaythis weekend. Brand new from RD is less than that!
It "rounds up the usual suspects" — hundreds of expressions that keep our language flourishing — and makes them easy to find in an A-to-Z format. Most of these collectors consider "the hunt" to be much more fun than the subsequent "read" and almost as much fun as the subsequent "brag"; in fact, for many, "the hunt" and "the brag" are the "be-all and end-all" of the collecting process, and they have no intention at all of ever indulging in "the read".
Alternatively, it refers to the process of those operatives insistently denying that they really know which titles in the series you'll be receiving if you're actually stupid enough to sign up with them as a subscriber to the WBR series. I have to admit, even knowing what I was looking for it took me awhile to see it. Even when I'm reading I never really pay much attention to illuminated letters; my brain contextually fills in the missing letter that is illuminated rather than it stopping to decode the actual illuminated letter. When I saw that the two letters involved were an "I" and a "T" I originally thought: "Hmmm, very droll.
That Novak, he's such a cutup! The Old Curiosity Shop. The book doesn't illuminate the first letter of every chapter but the chapter number instead. The same illumination - depicting Little Nell and her grandfather leaving their shop after Quilp has taken possession of it - is used at the beginning of every chapter with just the number changed.
The illumination is based on an original line drawing illustration that also appears in the WBR edition. However, the illumination - which is just a smaller, more simplistic rendition of that illustration - is inverted, as if the book copy setters had placed upside down whatever master it is they use to create the illumination. If the original illustration, on which the illumination is based, had not also appeared in the book, I would never have known anything was amiss.
It is also possible that the copy setters mistakenly inverted that particular source illustration in the book instead, and thus all he chapter illuminations are actually correctly oriented. It could also be argued that making the illumination the inverse image of the illustration was intentional. All I know is that when you are used to seeing an image rendered with one given orientation - such as the illustration on the front of "Silas Marner" with the figure heading off into the bottom right hand corner of the page - and then you see that same image rendered backwards - with the figure heading off into the bottom left hand corner of the page - it just doesn't feel copacetic.
They are not, however, inverted. Silas Marner would not be expected to walk from his house to Wal-Mart in the same direction as he would take for Toys R Us. Here are about 40 of them. Unfotrunately, the Reader's Digest web site has no information on these! The link doesn't paste well, but if you re-run the search it works. Or remove the Can anyone join in this discussion? First time in here, so I hope I'm posting this correctly.
I just discovered this series, and thanks to eBay, I have almost 60 titles. I'm very frustrated with Reader's Digest though. They will only start me off with My Antonia which is almost 4 years old and then move me through the list one by one. I have two problems with that. I have to buy books or send them back wasting two months that I already have or did not necessarily want. It will take years to get to the ones being released currently. Which, by the way RD customer service has no idea about new titles. Their list shows the series ended in , but I have a edition of Dracula on my shelf.
How does one go about getting the books as they are released? It's amazing to me that a company as big as RD would put together such fine books and them make them so unavailable for anyone to purchase. There's a few I'm having trouble with. I like them a lot. I found this thread via Google while trying to learn more about the series. Looking over the list at Wikipedia , I hope the experts here will help fix it up after 74 , simply click "edit", it is a great common resource. I've made some changes to reflect the series is still in print as of , per comments made above.
I'd caution that many of these books are best read elsewhere. Anything in translation most likely has a better version - for example, The Three Musketeers was recently translated by Richard Pevear and is considered the definitive edition, and The Arabian Nights is best read in the Haddaway translation. Some of the titles are easily and cheaply available in first or near first editions, such as Doctor Zhivago - anything from the 20th century, there is nothing like reading it in the original format.
Ben-Hur was re-published in hardback ? Jekyll and Mr. Hyde there are some excellent annotated editions to help with all the "strange" Victorian terminology. I could go on. On the other hand, some of these are well done and worthwhile. Of course if your interest is primarily collecting, then it would not matter so much. But if your aim is to read every title, a worthy goal with so many excellent works. I would suggest looking around at other editions as well. There is a lot on eBay that just listed today no, it's not mine , but it confirms the existence of Jane Austen's Persuasion.
The copyright date is by the Readers digest. I also have a list of volumes that I would like to purchase that is 13 titles long. And I am still recieving books every 6 wks or so from RD because I've remained a member for many years. It covers the impressive advances made by Greek and Roman societies, from language to medicine, from art to architecture, from prosperity to national bankruptcy.
A fascinating introduction to the world that became the foundation for Sir Kennerh Clark's Western Civilization, The Classics puts the same information from stuffy text books at your finger tips in one quick and entertaining read. Whether you need homework help or simply want to win that trivia game, this book is an unparalleled trusted source for ancient fun facts.
You'll even learn the answer to the famous music hall question, "What's a Greek urn? Do you know any Latin? Is it all Greek to you? Odds are, you know much more Latin and Greek than you think. The influence of these 'classical' civilizations is incredibly widespread. As this new book by the author of the best-selling From Here to Maternity explains — without any stuffiness — the classics have left their mark on our language, architecture, history, and even our popular literature. Even today, we still talk about a "Midas touch" because of the mythical character who asked the god Dionysus to make every chariot muffler he touched turn to gold.
These days we tend to think of the Midas touch — a seemingly effortless ability to make tons of money — as a good thing. However, the original Midas of yore had to meekly crawl back to Dionysus and beg for mercy when he realized that everything he was touching was turning to gold, including his food, drink and in some versions of the story his own and his wife's, plus quite a few of his servants', naughty bits! In the political world, the Athenians invented democracy over 2, years ago, when Cleisthenes of the Alcmaeonid family introduced the idea of giving Athenian citizens the vote, regardless of wealth or class.
In actuality, you also had to be male, middle-aged and an owner of sizable estates — but let's not split hairs here and ruin a good story! From this time on, any reasonably rich man over the age of 30 was entitled to register with his local deme — which is derived from the word demos meaning "bleach" from which we derive the modern day Demestos — and have a say in every major decision made about the overall hygiene of the public lavatories of his day.
If you take a look at today's popular literature, you'll find in the Harry Potter series some further examples of how modern day cleaning solvents have derived their names from people or events in ancient Greece or Rome. Most of Harry's spells are based on Latin words, while the evil Drano Malfoy is named after an extremely harsh Athenian lawmaker. On the sporting front, the long distance race that today we commonly refer to as a marathon was initially named after the tremendous running exploits of the ancient Greek Pheidippides who is sometimes alternatively referred to as Philippides.
According to the accounts of Herodotus and Plutarch, Pheidippides was an Athenian herald or hemerodrome — which simply means someone from Rome with a bad case of piles — who, despite his obvious anal discomfort, managed to run all the way from Sparta to Athens to announce the Greek victory at Marathon to the awaiting archons who were anxious to learn whether Greece had managed to qualify for the BC Euro finals.
It is reported by Lucian that Pheidippides, after first pausing to take a bite out of his favorite chocolate bar, only managed to announce, "Khairate, nikomen" which translates as, "Rejoice, for we are the Nike men's karate champions" before collapsing in front of his somewhat confused audience and immediately dying as a result of all his painful physical exertions. In addition, the ancient Greeks also invented the Olympic Games and are thus ultimately to blame for the current glut of slightly-used ignitable gold-plated chair legs being sold on eBay, not to mention almost every problem you have ever come up against in P.
In their turn, the Romans came up with a calendar that stayed in use until years ago and gave us the current names of all our months. The Romans also pioneered the concept of putting glass in windows and built some of the best and straightest roads in the whole world — they were built by soldiers who went everywhere on foot, so it was in their own best interest to make the route from anywhere to anywhere as short as possible.
Unfortunately, this is why today all roads lead to Rome, which can be extremely irritating when you get on the M1 at Hatfield wanting to visit your grandmother in Macclesfield I do own a copy of Hard Times, I have not seen the latter. Anyone have a copy of The Black Arrow? This might be fun. Just in case anyone from RD ever sees this If you could pick 5 books that you would most like to see make it into this collection, what would you choose? Mine would be: 1. Nicholas Nickelby Charles Dickens 3.
Ivanhoe Sir Walter Scott 4. War and Peace Leo Tolstoy I could think of a few more, but I'll leave that to the rest of you if you want to throw out some more good ones. Tales From the Hills, Rudyard Kipling. Oh please! Who are you kidding? Even without the illustrations and afterwords, you'd still buy those titles. Alright, I'll concede that War and Peace might be bit much. I would go with these five I think. The Count of Monte Cristo Dumas 4. I also agree that I would like to see the illustrations back. They're such a neat part of the books. I'd buy that. You know, the Tolstoy would end up costing too much for RD to mail, it's so thick.
I use my copy as a door stop. So perhaps I have some good news for you. Edition with complete number line 1 through 10 issued in the USA in - which implies that it was issued by RD in the UK earlier than this but, based on its contents, it certainly cannot have been issued any earlier than in the UK.
The title on the boards of this book is: The Best of James Herriot: Favourite memories of a country vet It was printed by St. This illustrated selection of James Herriot's so-called "best stories" was chosen by the RD editors BUT it is also officially condoned in a signed foreword by Herriot himself. That is, it is Herriot's own selection of his best stories; the compendium was NOT put together behind his back by RD. The book has the usual RD quality of binding and paper and is exquisitely and lavishly illustrated with line drawings artists not credited and color photographs photographers also not credited of the buildings and countryside in which they are set.
The ISBN of this book is and, having just checked, there are over copies of this anthology work currently catalogued on LT. The third book image is of the updated edition see explanation below. But if you don't own any of the original Herriot titles which I didn't then this book is a great way to get started, and even if you already own some or all of them it is still, at the used prices indicated, worth the additional purchase for the illustrations and photos alone.
Knowing that it is the author's own choice of his "best of" stories - rather than some anonymous otherwise-clueless RD editor's choice - also alleviates my conscience WRT purchasing a "best of" anthology instead of the originals which I'm personally still seeking. I hope you found the foregoing useful. Two thumbs up from me for ejcullen 's choice of RD adding some James Herriot to the WBR series roster, but I won't hold my breath for that to happen any time soon. And since I own this edition I don't particularly care.
I'm also all in favor of some more Kipling, Hugo, Steinbeck and Michener titles to be added to the WBR series rather than the more predictable Austen, Twain and Dickens - which I already owned complete inventories of as should any serious reader before I ever saw my first WBR title. He's an abysmal writer, albeit imaginative, that IMO badly needed an editor. You'll be wanting more Herman Melville and some J. Rowling next! How about some C. Lewis instead? Since they are both considered to be children's stories, there are plenty of beautifully illustrated editions extant of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Narnia so we probably don't need RD to add further editions to those.
Plus the WBR editors are no longer in the business of producing illustrated titles But I'm up for a nicely bound edition of The Screwtape Letters or something equally witty, plus his contributions to intelligent and insightful science fiction are second to none. Edited to add a new link to the three LT book images to fix the one that pointed to an image in an AbeBooks listing which was presumably removed because the book was sold.
Thank you Rule42 for adding the info about Herriot. We appreciate your time and that was very thoughtful. Not sure I agree with your take on The Hobbit though. I didn't start this so we could fight about it. I got reamed for selecting War and Peace, and I kind of expected that I would. I thought it would be fun for everybody to throw out some titles that they would enjoy having.

Criticising each other's choices was not what I had in mind. By the way, what would you choose to be added to the collection? Lord Lucan is already posting on this thread so I guess it would be really cool to know we have another member of the British aristocracy also contributing here. But I believe this is a "discussion board" where folk are free to state their individual opinions, and not a "kiss-my-ass board" where you are only allowed to agree with what has already been posted. Reamed indeed? If you are that sensitive about having someone politely disagree with your posted comments then perhaps you should think twice before posting them?
You might also want to stay home all day and live in a hermetically sealed bubble, because that way perhaps you'll avoid all contrary opinions in your life. Clearly you did not have the courage of your own convictions when you recommended the Tolstoy otherwise you would have intellectually defended that choice instead of immediately retracting it.
I saw absolutely nothing wrong with that suggestion But since you would rather that we all behave like a bunch of six year old girls here and not say anything that someone might possibly disagree with I'll withdraw those two titles and suggest some others instead Since the very first title I came across and bought in the WBR series was The Three Musketeers - that's the one that started it all for me!
So inkeeping with the spirit of Dumb Ass I would add for my first selection in my list of five The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy with original or early illustrations plus an Afterword, thank you very much. Wells' combos in the series in its earlier releases when RD was still big on Mr. If this new Verne edition whichever one RD wishes to choose is illustrated by Joseph Ciardiello to the same colorfully lush standard that he applied to the two other WBR Verne titles he illustrated - rather than the rather boring monochrome line drawings he did for Moby-Dick , The Strange Case of Dr.
The truly great American authors are mostly all post WW These two particular works have down the years been illustrated by some of the best book illustrators of all time. The works, quite rightly, are almost always published with the wonderful original 42 illustrations done by Sir John Tenniel who produced them in coordination with Lewis Carroll so they reflect much of the author's input and approval but I already own a number of editions of the works so illustrated and I don't wish for another one. However, one of my favorite illustrated versions of "Wonderland" was done later by Arthur Rackham.
Unfortunately, Rackham doesn't appear to have illustrated a published copy of "Looking Glass" otherwise an Arthur Rackham illustrated combo edition of the two Alice works would be a no-brainer. But an edition of "Wonderland" containing the dozen or so Rackham color plates in combination with an edition of "Looking Glass" containing illustrations in the Rackham style by, say, a modern artist might perhaps be the next best thing. The Rackham illustrations for Swift's Gulliver's Travels are also quite exquisite and I would have been all over the WBR issue of that title if it had contained those.
Barrie's Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens 50 color plates. Well, I've already come up with way more than 5 titles for my first four selections, but nevertheless I'll continue on with my fifth selection - how about a combo edition of The Sign of Four and The Valley of Fear by Arthur Conan Doyle. Illustrated and with an Afterword, of course!
Or how about a collection of ACD's non-Holmes short stories he wrote quite a few about pugilism since he was a keen amateur boxer or perhaps an illustrated edition of the work that Michael Crichton filched many of his most successful ideas from, The Lost World? Or perhaps one of his other Professor Challenger titles? In that same vein, I would also find an illustrated edition of H. Rider Haggard's She or Allan Quartermain very appealing. Sheesh, how about some recognition of Evelyn waugh in this series? Or Raymond Chandler? If only RD hadn't fired all the editor's that originally conceived the initial format and appeal of the original WBR editions!
What a pity That's par for the course in almost everything nowadays, I suppose. Well, you're in a feisty mood today. I can't dispute what you've said. You're very knowledgeable and literate. Excuse me for the word "we". Obviously that offended you and I shouldn't speak for others on this board. My apologies. I did not defend my choice of War and Peace, because I've never actually read it.

I've always wanted to, even though I've heard that many readers find it a bit too much to get through. I was going to add the 2nd Dumas titles, but I didn't want to put the same author twice. Perhaps I should have. I agree wholeheartedly with your choice of a Lewis Carroll combo, I would like to see that also. I'd like to see Gatsby as well. You probably already know, so for the sake of any who may not Masterstroke suggesting the 5 new WBR titles, by the way Rule Are you saying more Steinbeck there's only one so far and bring in Alice?
If so, I'm with you! Must go an' make some more shelves If I remember correctly, the story has something to do with Russia. The WBR edition of The Grapes of Wrath was one of the very last of the illustrated pre titles that I purchased in this series because I already owned 3 other copies of it So I really only succumbed and bought the WBR version for its illustrations. Now that the WBR series is no longer illustrated nor contains Afterwords I cannot even make those rationalizations any more. Can you hear me, RD? But once again, I already own half a dozen copies of these two titles and so I would have absolutely no use at all for another text-only version of them.
But an edition containing the Arthur Rackham illustrations of "Wonderland" and possibly a copy of the Peter Newell illustrations of "Looking Glass" would definitely pique my interest. Can you hear me now, RD? But then Something wrong here somewhere RD. Something definitely wrong here!
Just in case an editor from RD do they actually read? Saul Bellow - Humboldt's Gift 4. Forster - A Room with a View 5. Kingsley Amis - Lucky Jim. I got them at an auction about 6 years ago and have never been able to find a list. I'm a gal and sadly I like them mostly because they look purty on my shelves. Eventhough I find her entertaining, I don't think Hannah Montanna will bring much culture to my girls! After reading quite a few of the posts I have a nice list.
I don't feel the need to get ALL of them but I would like about 30 more. So, my question now is I would like to collect them gradually as I see them in stores but I also don't want to pass up one that is typically hard to find even if it is not on my want list. Is that a joke?!

And yes it was the WBR version. On a side note, please don't kill me for spelling, grammar, punctuation or anything else related to our great English language. I'm just your everyday forgot-most-of-what-I-learned-in-school gal peeking in on the readers!!! Hiyaback, I think the books that have a copyright of or later tend to be the hardest to find.
One good place to compare prices and get an idea of how many are being circulated would be to check abebooks. You could find a To Kill a Mockingbird on there for more like 4. Good Luck! The next hardest titles to find are the most recently issued and later titles also listed in post The easiest titles to find are the first 75 titles issued prior to Even once you've tracked down and paid through the nose for those 3 you will then still have to look elsewhere for a copy of Northanger Abbey.
If RD really had its act together it would have published a copy of both of her posthumously published novels viz. But there is a little history behind its use too. I used to happily pronounce Monsieur Dumas' name "Alexander Dooomass" until I dated a preppy New England gal who took great delight in telling me that I was mispronouncing it, and that it was more correct to say "Alexondray Duhma"! Well duh, pardonnez-moi and lahdidah, Miss Pretentious.
It was all a bit like watching Carrie Bradshaw trying to correctly pronounce the name of her Russian sculptor lover, Aleksandr Petrovsky, in an episode of Sex in the City. The only title I'm personally familiar with in the Impress "The Best Mysteries of All Time" series is Maugham's Ashenden , although I've also stumbled across a few other titles in this series while browsing the web. So for those two selections I'll revert back and substitute my two original culinary arts choices of Nabokov's Loyal Eater and Dostoevsky's Cream and Buns in Mint.
A possible alternative choice to that Doesheeverski title would be the other novel he wrote about a family of brothers that ran a small carpet-fitting business The Brothers Carry Mats Off. Much appreciated. I read earlier in a post that it was well liked so I picked it up too. Can't wait for them to get here! I do hope to actually read all of my collection someday but with small children it's not easy to find the time. I hated reading growing up so I'm not well read When I read Robin Hood as an adult I realized why reading was so facinating, I could picture the entire landscape, characters That was awesome.
But for right now I just wishihadtime!!! Without knowing which WBR titles you own that is kind of difficult to do, you know. Just as writers should always follow their writing muse, readers should always follow their reading muse and read what they are most interested in at the time. Because your tastes change over time. So strike while the iron is hot.
Anyone who would like to discuss them there is most welcome. Mutiny on the Bounty is only the first of three books in the "Bounty Trilogy"; the two subsequent ones being Men Against the Sea and Pitcairn's Island. I mean to say, whatever next? So far I've avoided the WBR Galsworthy title because if I decide to embark on this work I want to own and read the full saga that Galsworthy wrote, and not just a piece of it.
Consequently, I would treat a WBR issue of Mutiny on the Bounty without the two subsequent books in the "Bounty trilogy" in the same vein. Thanks but no thanks! A large number of the WBR titles issued to date were originally published by RD in either a condensed book format or in one of its other featured series such as "The Best Loved Books for Young Readers. Bit too rugged. Cornish Pasty, thanks fur posting your corny pastiche here.

Hello all. I have been collecting this series for several years. When it arrives I will update with publication date. My new addition arrived today. Hi SassyGram and welcome to the thread. BTW, we already knew about that James title; see posts 47 and 66 above. However, what would be really useful would be if you - or someone else reading this post that collects the WBR series by purchasing the books directly from RD - could identify what the sixth new title was that RD released in in North America.
Also, what was the correct order of release of those titles; I merely added them to my post 66 in the order I personally discovered them either from posts on this thread or by seeing the book elsewhere.
