e books

Found this an interesting exercise, if only to realise that although it might be easy and convenient to download a book and listen to it on the bus, it still would not have the same feel as physically touching and smelling and absorbing the story in a book with pages as I have traditionally known it.

I searched for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on LibriVox and immediately was able to make a choice of downloading it in total, chapter by chapter. Elsewhere I was offered any number of books and articles about Jane Austen and her works. It would be extremely useful to a student wanting criticisms for an assignment.
