Literature for Free
Internet should help us getting in touch with other literatures, but we know it's not always like this. Anyway, exceptions are growing:
- This month issue from the Words Without Borders brings Modern Chinese Literature translated into English (and some Spanish and Romanian as well).
- The American Small Beer Press is publishing a collection of short stories by John Kessel for free download, under creative commons. You can do with it almost whathever you want, including reading. (Source: Boing Boing)
And for read all this PDFs you can use Skim (if you're a Mac user). I've already read some books with it. Yes, I bring my laptop to bed to read before going to sleep...
