Annotated classics in ebook format?

I really love the Power Moby Dick site, which gives very helpful annotations and puts obscure words and expressions into a modern context. Where can I find more of this for other classics? And most importantly, I want to find formats that can be downloaded and viewed on my Nook e-reader. [more inside]

Making a movie master list

I want to make a list of every movie and book I've ever seen/read. There are a few categorizing apps like this, but nothing I've found is very efficient. Here's my idea and tell me if it's already been done: I can search by genre, actor, director, author, etc and be given a list (preferably with the movie/book cover as a clickable icon), which I can then simply click on to go to my master list. The list then has my choices darkened (and the unclicked ones still light), so I can easily see, say, which Scorsese movie I haven't gotten to yet. Does anything like this exist? If not, it'd be a good project for me to work on (tho probably waaay over my head).
