Okay, I just got excited. Whilst looking at rss stuff, I stumbled across DailyLit, a site that sends installments of books to you via rss or email. It’s really cool! I am now getting Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland sent to my rss feed reader daily. I can read a chapter a day! Hmm, 9 books of the bible there and no Qu’ran. Ah well.
Also, I found a free online audiobook service where volunteers read out-of-copyright text into a microphone and then it is made available. LibriVox is the name of the site. I’m considering volunteering…not because my voice is anything special, just because I am quite keen for mass digitising of audiobooks to take place. Although I’m having trouble listening to any of them…it may be due to our firewall at work though…I’ll have to try from home.
Lucky last link, Fokus Deutsches – an online video instruction series for learning German. Exciting! There’s a few languages there actually, all European though (I guess learning to speak tonal languages wouldn’t be so easy online!)
