The Literature Page is now complete and open to the public. The announcement is repeated below.

I have been working on a new site that looks suspiciously similar to this one, except with a slightly different shade of blue and entirely different content.

The Literature Page (yes, our creative naming continues)
http://www.literaturepage.com/

About The Literature Page
http://www.literaturepage.com/about.html

This site is my attempt to make entire classic books, stories, and poems available - and readable - online. Although there are many online literature sites out there, It offers some unique features, such as customizable fonts and colors, that will make the idea of reading online a bit less of a headache. We have 100 public-domain books and stories online so far and will be adding more daily.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that this forum is now shared between the two sites. There has been some minor reorganizing and renaming of forums, but very little has changed. You won't be automatically logged in there, but your username and password from this forum will work (and the content of the forums is the same.)

Feel free to post comments to this thread or to email. I'm always looking for more feedback.

Thanks for reading!

Wonderful idea! Waiting patiently for further contributions.

I could not find "The Black Prince" by Iris Murdoch on-line (Russian versions are only available but they don't do any good for my American friends). If someone knows where to find the electronic version of this novel, please let me know.

Respectfully,

Tali (Ivorybird)

Thanks for your comments!

Unfortunately, Iris Murdoch is too recent (she lived from 1919 to 1999, and The Black Prince is from 1973) for us to include - we can only include works that are in the public domain. There might be sites out there in countries with different copyright laws, but legally it shouldn't be online in the US or the UK.

This is one of those times when an actual library or bookstore will do you more good than the Internet. :)
