Book Rogers in the 21st Century


Greetings everyone. Just a quick post today because I have to go and wax my face ready for a meeting with the bank manager. Here’s a few links for all you literary types out there in bloggsville:

Firstly, I’d like to draw your attention to the Librivox project. They guys are in the process of attempting to get every book in the public domain converted into audio and available to download, podcast stylee; pretty cool eh?

But they can’t do it without help from people like you, there are opportunities for volunteers to read a chapter or 5, or an entire book if you like, anyway here’s the link:

http://www.librivox.org

The second literary link is to Unblokt- the collaborative writing experiment. For those of you who don’t know about this its essentially an open source novel written by whoever, whenever, one line at a time. The page generates two lines that others have written, which you then have to write the line in between. Be warned, this could be a little addictive:

Oh yeah you can click on a link on the bottom of the page to read what has been so far, it’s a bit mad.

That’s all for now folks

Interesting prospects. I found a project just recently, myself. Read more about it here.
