Classics for February, Gutenberg
In this batch, a swag of writings by Mark Twain. These are beautifully illustrated, hence my advice below.
I have also chosen some other writings in different categories that I think may appeal to the tastes of some. These I'll post shortly. There are some wonderful ones. I am still figuring out the best way to display them and not dominate the blog. I have an idea. It all takes time....
What to do:
1. Install Kindle Reader on your PC or Mac. That way you can choose the fully illustrated versions when the illustrations are important to the pleasure of reading. You don't need to own a Kindle Reader. Calibre works just as well. Both are free.
2. Now click on any title below. It will take you to that title on Gutenberg's site.
3. Choose your desired format and download the book. (EPUB is the one for Calibre.)
4. Doubleclick on the downloaded file and it will take you from there.
[NOTE: I now have a dedicated section of the blog for Gutenberg snippets. Please have a glance through them. There is a link to them permanently on the right hand navigation section, called The Joys of Gutenberg.]
