– Project Gutenberg Is Perfect –

Because it is a free online library with varieties of eBooks.

Note that I’ve juxtaposed Haikus about reading feels with prosaic sentences, which is some sort of writing experiment, to help me chase away the boredom of writing non-fiction.

Reading…
A 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 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 eBooks that have been freely released for the public.

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

What’s more interesting about this digital library, it’s the fact that it has more than 58,000 free awesome eBooks that are ready to be downloaded in various digital formats.

To read
Is to mend
The heart with the soul
.

To get a better reading experience readers can download these ebooks from Project Gutenberg on the Google Playbook app (where all other services, apart its e-reading app is available for Mauritians), kindle app, Apple Book (which is also a cool digital place for readers to stroll, because even if from Mauritius we can’t buy e-books or audiobooks that are available on their e-store, we still can read free books directly from their website).

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

Thus, even if you can’t afford to buy a fancy e-reader, you can simply read free eBooks of your choice right from your computer or mobile device.

Intellect –
Reading –
The words
Sit in 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 that will help to open further the dimension of our mind.

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
