A few weeks ago, our readers contributed to creating a list of books that left an indelible mark on their lives. You can review the original post here. But we figured why not add them to our “My Library” page on Google, a new product that we briefly mentioned yesterday. You can access the collection here (or get it by rss feed). And, as you’ll see, we also imported to the list all of our users’ comments on the individual books. Explore the list, find a great read, and pass it along to a worthy friend.
Download over 100 classic audiobooks as free podcasts, or learn over 25 foreign languages with, yes, more free podcasts.
Hmm, I would think at Open Culture, you would at least add versions of Public Domain works in Full View, rather than newer editions that are either Limited Preview or Snippet View. (I’m looking at the Edgar Allan Poe, and the Marcus Aurelius). I am glad to see the Dickens is a Full View, though.
Good points about using the full view option for those texts. I made those changes. Thanks for the good reminder.
This is such a good idea, why don’t we do an update every 3-4 months to get some fresh ideas and inspire each other with some good literature? A pity there is no similar place to post audio books as well; some great ones coming out of Librivox lately.
