Read Using Online Resources

Recently our school has put together a student library. However, funds are limited, so besides some new purchases and teachers' donations of used/recycled books for leisure reading or studying, I've also been looking for free online books. Happily, I've found at least one site that has quite a few 'classic' novels and short stories that can be either downloaded or read online.

The Cambridge Preparatory Courses will be starting up in a few weeks, and I plan to try using Read Print as a way to get my students to enjoy some great short stories, such as H.G. Well's 'The Country of the Blind,' or novels such as '1984' or 'Animal Farm.' 'Read Print' welcomes feedback, and you can also become a fan of the site on Facebook. Check it out, and see what you think.

Hi Evelyn,

Thanks for spreading the word about Read Print. We hope you find it useful.

Just a heads up -- we're launching Inkcover.com soon -- it'll have even more books than Read Print and you'll be able to download it and read on your iPhone or iPod as well.

Warm regards,
The Read Print Team.
