Currently reading  ‘The Hand Of Fu-Manchu, by Sax Rohmer, dowloaded from Project Gutenberg.
Note: I’ve juxtaposed Haikus about the abstract emotion felt when reading in between paragraphs. Consider this action as some sort of personal writing experiment — as to chase away the boredom of writing serious matters, knowingly that I have difficulties writing that which is non-fiction; deemed too demanding for my evasive mind.

Reading…
Gateway
To the opening
Of minds

Did you know that the 1st of January is ‘Public Domain Day’ — well, I didn’t knew that either, not until recently, while reading online an article about this particular celebration.

When I read
The words feed
My mind — escapism

It happens that literary works (and other arts as well) whose copyrights have expired (on the U.S territory), enter the ‘Public Domain’ registry, and is fully made available — without any restriction — to the grand public.

The wind
Swiftly dance…
In stories

You can read more about this celebration day from an article found on Wikipedia.

Wrapped in words
We are stories
Fed to papers

Thus, this day is the perfect occasion to rush to Project Gutenberg’s site, to find out about the free eBooks made public.


A speck of stardust
Left on the book-cover…
Was the writer sober?

What’s interesting with this digital library, is the fact that it has more than 58,000 free awesome eBooks, ready for downloads, and made available into almost all digital formats.

To read
Is mending
Hearts + soul

As for me, I download these eBooks directly on Google Play Book, as to get a good reading experience.


Read afresh
Read anew
Read for you –
Ouch…
Mash potatoes
Fell on the book

Thus, even if you can’t afford to buy any particular eReader, you can simply read free eBooks of your choice right from your computer and mobile device.

Intellect –
Reading –
The words
Sits into my mind –

Intellectual and cultural expansion have never been that much accessible to a wider public, yet, we can’t seem to find any articles that mention these interesting sites, those — which from my own opinion — would have opened further the dimension of our thoughts.

Read and heartbeat rhymes
Like feed and read
And seed and deed

Furthermore, the otherwise able or any other people that can’t easily move from their home, can take advantage of having the freedom to choose by themselves, from the vast library of eBooks ready for downloads.


How shall I escape –
Fiction, I shouted

By Eiravel

I am married, and I have two sons. I live on the island of Mauritius. I love to write fiction, poems, and blog. I've self-published a science-fiction book (Darcocyte). I aspire to make a living through my creative writings. I am a very passionate person. I love the sublime and the strange; and I am also interested in all types and forms of art that pleases my mind.
