Read book online in english

All you need is a computer connected to the internet, and the application you use most: the internet browser like Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer.
You can also read the books entirely, if their digital versions is available online for free. Institutions like Project Gutenberg or Internet Archive digitize public domain books, and make them available for free through their online catalogs. When it comes to paid books, and it doesn’t matter whether you want to buy a print or ebook version, free book previews are a standard feature offered by many online bookstores. You can read approximately 10% of the paid book – long enough to make a decision whether to order a book or not. The sites listed below are the ones where you can read books online from the first to the last page. Descriptions include also screenshots of the reading interface, so that you can quickly compare the services. If you’d like to add any site to the list, please leave your suggestion in the comments below. Many sites that offer free ebooks from public domain use the titles originally uploaded to Project Gutenberg. Internet Archive, founded in 1996, is a non-profit organisation offering free access to digital or digitized content: books, images, videos, or audio files. The catalog includes well over 6,000,000 fully accessible public domain ebooks and other text files. To read the book, just click on the arrows in the bottom bar of the image of the opened book.
The online viewer presents the scanned pages of the book, what brings an extra flavor to reading. There are many ways to go through the content of the book, including one-page view, and zooming. One thing to keep in mind is that the content of the book is fully searchable, let not the scan mislead you.
The site claims to have 6 million authors and 20 million books. You can search inside 2 million titles. Click on the Read icon and you’ll land in the full screen online reader, similar to Internet Archive.
A huge collection of books that Google scanned and turned into viewable files is now available on Google.
To stay in the Google Books project, use the search box on the left side, as shown on the screenshot below. You’ll be able to preview the book until you reach the limit of free pages set by a publisher. In case of contemporary books, the preview pages are scans, and they are displayed with a permission of the publisher (see screenshot above).
Many Smashwords books are being sold in big ebookstores, including Barnes & Noble, or Kobo. If you find out that a publisher of the book is Smashwords, you can be sure that in the original site you can read a free sample in your browser. What’s more, Smashwords authors have an option to set up the length of a free preview. On a page with book details, scroll down to see a table with available ebook reading formats. Quite frankly, reading interface offered by Smashwords is not the strongest part of this great site.
Blurb is one of the most important self-publishing sites, where you can find a lot of quality, very well designed ebooks. Very often, online book previews on Blurb show the entire content, as authors earn money on selling print versions.
As the site is focused on showcasing beautifully designed books, the reading interface was developed with that purpose in mind. To find new stories, click on Discover in a navigation bar, and you’ll see a handy panel where you can browse by category, type a keyword or find what other users are reading.
If you care about the user interface and a pleasure of reading, you should definitely try Bookish. If you want to get more posts about books in digital age, please subscribe by RSS or email.
Read-Along Book & CD Cinderella Brand New Factory Sealed Retail Package Enjoy endless fairy tale delight with this read-along storybook and feature-packed CD. Raina Telgemeier, the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of the Eisner Award winner, SMILE, brings us her next full-color graphic novel . Drama is a rather appropriate title for this charming graphic novel for and about middle graders. Those two words are actually quite fitting regarding the rest of the crew as well and Drama effectively shows what goes behind the stage of a theatre production and all the effort necessary to make it work.


But not all of the drama comes from the production of the play – Callie has her crushes on boys to deal with too and the author expertly portrays her anxiety and insecurity about that in a way that doesn’t make her a quivering mess that cares only about boys.
With regards to the art, the graphic novel features colourful, clear and bright panels that are delightful if not necessarily mould-breaking. I loved Drama – it was a quick and engaging read, featuring great female characters doing really cool things and I feel like all kids should be reading this.
That said, at the end of the day, it is so freaking encouraging and inspiring to read a book featuring such a female-positive story with such a bunch of diverse characters that I almost wish I didn’t have to say the obvious: the heroine of this story is still the white, middle class, cisgender character and everybody else – as awesome as they are – are still secondary characters in her drama. I also like the point you make at the end about how maybe it would be a bit better if the MC was a bit more diverse. AnonymousMarch 10, 2016 at 10:48 pmI love this book called DRAMA because it is interesting and cool. 1 : a book review blog specializing in speculative fiction and popgeekery for all ages since 2008. The Book Smugglers purchase books for review on this site, but also receive free review copies from authors, publishers, and other third parties.
The Red Tree is a story without any particular narrative; a series of distinct imaginary worlds as self-contained images which invite readers to draw their own meaning in the absence of any written explanation.
The Red Tree won the Patricia Wrightson prize in the NSW Premiera€™s Book Awards, and was awarded the 'le Prix Octogones 2003a€™ prize by the Centre International d'Etudes en Litterature de Jeunesse, following ita€™s translation into French. A The Red Tree began an experimental narrative more than anything else: the idea of a book without a story.
I'd also been increasingly aware that illustration is a powerful way of expressing of feeling as well as ideas, partly because it is outside of verbal language, as many emotions can be hard to articulate in words. What resulted after many scribbles was a series of imaginary landscapes connected only by a minimal thread of text and the silent figure of a young girl at the center of each one, with whom the reader is invited to identify. Originally I was planning to paint pictures about a range of emotions; fear, joy, sadness, amazement and so on. Readers have occasionally asked me why my imagery is often 'dark', and I think ita€™s because of this. The Red Tree has been translated into several languages, including Chinese, Japanese and Korean, which indicates something of ita€™s cross-cultural appeal. With more and more content going digital, you don’t have to go to a bookstore to preview the book before buying it. Te detailed description includes a choice of titles, and some tips on how to improve reading experience, when reading a book in your internet browser. If you’re looking for great classic books, Project Gutenberg is the right destination to go.
It displays all elements and all formatting, so you will be able to see the original cover of the book, as well as illustrations inside. You can turn it on by clicking on the speaker icon in the top right corner of the book viewer. The site is actually Internet Archive’s separate project, more focused on collecting library records. More importantly, Google will prompt you to check out Google Play – their online ebookstore. Select Full view to see only the books that can be read online from the beginning to the end. It’s the biggest and most advanced site with ebooks from independent authors and publishers.

You can start reading by either clicking on a red-colored Read button or selecting one of the chapters from a table of content. No matter whether you use Facebook on the iPad or Twitter on your Android phone, our site loads fast and is easy to read. It's a read-along book, music CD, and fun PC software, all in one terrific package!  Its 3 Great Products in 1 Read Along Storybook! At centre stage is Callie, a theatre enthusiast and set designer for the stage crew at her school, who hopes to create a veritable bang in this year’s production of Moon Over Mississippi. Another thing this book accomplishes is to portray the stage crew as individuals who actually do enjoy what they do, have specifically applied for those roles and are good at those jobs – these are not actor-wannabes who for some reason didn’t get the main role and ended up on stage crew as second choice. There are several PoC as well as LGBT characters, some of which are already out, some of which are still figuring things out before doing so – and this is the only aspect of the story where there is no drama whatsoever and its all presented very positively.


Mind you, this does not make the book any less lovely or Callie’s experience any less important – it is just an observation about the overwhelming amount of stories featuring just that type of protagonist that are available to us. I own Telgemeier’s SMILE, and since that is autobiographical, the heroine is white and middle class, too.
As a concept, the book is inspired by the impulse of children and adults alike to describe feelings using metaphor - monsters, storms, sunshine, rainbows and so on. I've always loved Chris Van Allsburg's classic picture book a€?The Mysteries of Harris Burdicka€™ (1984) which is a great example of word-picture enigmas, exhibiting partial fragments of unknown stories and leaving the reader to use their imagination. At the beginning she awakes to find blackened leaves falling from her bedroom ceiling, threatening to quietly overwhelm her. But the more I worked on this, the more I found the negative emotions - particularly feelings of loneliness and depression - were just much more interesting from both a personal and artistic point of view. I'm more attracted to those things that aren't quite right, like the social and environmental injustice in The Rabbits, or the social apathy of The Lost Thing, or even ideas about self-destruction in The Viewer.
A different kind of a€?translationa€™ altogether has been the adaptation of this book as a childrena€™s theatre production [link] developed for Brisbanea€™s Out of the Box festival, which opened at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in June 2004. You will also be able to navigate using table of content, or click on hyperlinks inside the file. You can sort the results by relevance, rating, download count, and the date of adding the item to the catalog. Immerse yourself in the beautiful illustrations and listen along with the included discs as this classic story is magically retold Sing-Along Music CD!  12 wonderfully original and entertaining fairy-tale songs will charm kids of all ages - and parents too! Part of the drama comes from the lack of budget for Callie’s (awesome) ideas and one of the (many) great things about the story is how Callie faces this problem and solves it with creativity and dedication. Damn them) are important to her but so are her friends, her family and her job as a set designer.
But as in this book, there are lots of other characters of colour at her school – the book is set from the start of her getting braces to the end, and how others saw her with braces (a lot about peer pressure and coolness) and how she saw herself and how she learned to distinguish false friends and real friends and get over the idea that is only worth as much in the eyes of others as her beauty.
Raina is such a good author and the illustrations really helped you get an image in your mind.
She works with translations in RL and hopes one day The Book Smugglers will be her day job.
It has no sequential narrative, which is something a picture book is ideal for a€“ you can open it at any page, go backwards or forwards, and spend as much time as you wish with each image. I find such things artistically engaging, perhaps because they are unresolved, like a puzzle.
This was a fascinating project, and a welcome opportunity to work in collaboration with artists from very different disciplines, and see how they went about interpreting the book, and in turn how audiences responded to this. You can browse catalog alphabetically, by author or category, and by, yes – language.
But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? A nameless young girl appears in every picture, a stand-in for ourselves; she passes helplessly through many dark moments, yet ultimately finds something hopeful at the end of her journey. She imagines herself trapped in a bottle washed up on a forgotten shore, or lost in a strange landscape. At the same time, I do enjoy work that is celebratory - which The Red Tree ultimately is - but any apparent meaning is always laced with uncertainty.
The ideas of the original book are very broad and I think point more to a method of expression a€“ of a€?emotional worldsa€™ - rather than any very specific content, so it not only endures variable interpretations, it almost demands them. Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier! She's caught in a tiny boat between towering ships about to collide, then suddenly she's on stage before a mysterious audience, not knowing what to do.
This seems appropriate, as everyonea€™s experience of a€?sufferinga€™ or a€?hopea€™ is unique and personal. Following the success of SMILE, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama!
Just as all hope seems lost, the girl returns to her bedroom and finds a tiny red seedling growing in the middle of the floor.

Each image remains open to various interpretations in the absence of any accompanying description. What minimal 'story' there is seeks to remind us that just as bad feelings are inevitable, they are always tempered by hope.
