|Hosted by Estella's Revenge,
I was surprised when I looked at my 2014 reads and realized that I didn't read anything from one of my favorite online resources this year. I did use Project Gutenberg to find some illustrations and I downloaded a couple of things (but I didn't read them).
So I decided to share some Christmas goodies
(and at the bottom of this post a short list of some things I read from Gutenberg in 2013).
Christmas At Project Gutenberg
Twas the Night Before Christmas, A Visit from St. Nicholas By Clement C. Moore, illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith
The Romance of a Christmas Card, by Kate Douglas Wiggin
Christmas Sunshine, by Various [selections from Milton, Thackeray, and others]
Christmas Stories from French and Spanish writers by Antoinette Ogden
A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, illustrated by Arthur Rackham
Project Gutenberg has many other Christmas books, including several other editions of The Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol.
Some 2013 reading favorites from Gutenberg (these are not Christmas books):
Mrs. Vanderstein's Jewels; Bryce, Charles
a detective story
Adventures of a Sixpence in Guernsey by A Native; Anonymous
a short story
My Antonia; Cather, Willa
plenty of classics on Gutenberg!
The Ink-stain (Tache d'encre) Bazin, Rene
West Wind Drift; McCutcheon, George Barr
first published in 1920. Shipwrecked castaways establish a colony on a deserted island. Gutenberg has thirty titles from this novelist and playwright who is best known for Brewster's Millions
(note to self: add some Gutenberg books to 2015 reading goals)
