with 3 comments

Nodtronics publishes it:

An interactive CD ROM which contains over 4000 complete works by great authors from all over the world including Australia. There are novels, plays, poetry, short stories, sacred texts, essays, the complete King James Bible plus much more.

Also, there are many different screen options such as browsing, increasing screen font size, adding bookmarks, copying and pasting sections of text to your notepad, saving previously read books, printing sections of text or complete novels, and a very powerful search engine. Searching by author, category, or keyword makes Over 4000 Works of Literature a fast and valuable reference guide, or an easy way to enjoy the world’s most loved classics for the cost of one paperback!

Categories include:
Adventure, Australia, Children, Drama, Epic, Fantasy, History, Mystery, Poetry, Religion and Philosophy, Science & Terror

This would seem particularly useful for English teachers. See the link for a partial list of works/authors. Works with Windows or Mac. Buy it here for $9.95 (Australian).

  1. The actual book data is encrypted, so you are forced to use their crap interface. It’s full of cheesy sounds which you can’t turn off, irritating cartoony animation, and it runs full screen. Why does anyone need an e-book reader app to run full screen? For the love of god, why!? Forget about listening to music while you’re reading. You have to either turn your volume off or listen to page-turning and squeaky-door sounds. Ugh. What a waste of money.

  2. Agreed. The idea is great but the program is crap. I couldn’t even figure out how to turn a page while reading – you have to go to”Turn Page” and then type in the number of the page you want to turn to! It’s lame and annoying.
