Choosy Beggar Books


I scanned the old books and put them in PDF format (you can get a PDF reader at Adobe’s website). The files are big by Midwest standards, so it might take a minute to download the comics, although a couple are small because they were scanned in low resolutions. You can still buy hard copies of all the books through the mail. Just drop me a line! believe-in-yourself-poster
