The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Basil is impressed by Dorian’s beauty and becomes infatuated with him, believing his beauty... More > is responsible for a new mode in his art. Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, a friend of Basil’s, and becomes enthralled by Lord Henry’s world view. Espousing a new hedonism, Lord Henry suggests the only things worth pursuing in life are beauty and fulfillment of the senses. Realizing that one day his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses his desire to sell his soul to ensure the portrait Basil has painted would age rather than himself. Dorian’s wish is fulfilled, plunging him into debauched acts. The portrait serves as a reminder of the effect each act has upon his soul, with each sin displayed as a disfigurement of his form, or through a sign of aging. This reading uses the 20-chapter 1891 version of Wilde’s novel.< Less
B to the F: The Novelization of the Feature Film By Ryan North
eBook (ePub): $2.99

In 1984, George Gipe was contracted to write the novelization of the movie Back To The Future. He was supplied with a screenplay still in flux, writing his novelization even as the movie itself was... More > being rewritten and as major roles were being recast (Michael J. Fox was not the first person to play Marty McFly). Partially because of this, and partially because of Gipe's natural writing style, the novelization is coo-coo bananas. It is totally insane. It's... kind of awesome? This book is the page-by-page reading guide to Gipe's novelization of Back to the Future, pointing out where things are different from the movie (often!) why and how they're worse (often!) and even when they're better (it happens, like, twice). It is written by Ryan North who writes the online strip Dinosaur Comics and the Adventure Time comic book. There are lots of pictures and lots of jokes and you will have a fun time reading (EVEN MORE SO THAN YOU NORMALLY DO).< Less

Daniel Defoe’s writings have always been appreciated by millions of readers around the world. He is better known for his novels of adventures and explorations, trying to explore the human... More > psychology at the same time. His travelogues are equally admirable, for his observation of the places he visits is beyond merely a description of the physical objects he comes across.

The present book will thoroughly entertain you, besides informing and instructing you about the great land of Great Britain. Daniel Defoe’s observation is different from what a layman or a casual travellers sees. Enjoy reading.< Less

''So what do you think boss, are we catching up?'' This is one of many typical questions you as a foreigner will be confronted with very often. Usually I was used to answer this quite politely by... More > saying something nice but after spending some time traveling around I was set to build some firm opinion. What do they mean by catching up? It all depends on what do you consider by being modern developed country. Do you refer to all these new buildings, roads and shopping centres giving false first impression of developed region where by the way price is enormous by means of deforestation of the whole region? I think I will never understand this competition race to catch up with allegedly developed western countries. Traveling in the Far East is an exceptional experience for any Westerner. The Orient is ancient and mystical and has far more to offer by means of people, history, traditions, and last but not least nature than our socially half-empty western civilization.< Less

Henry David Thoreau Classics: Cape Cod By Henry David Thoreau

Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau is one of the most prominent of the writings He was a man of the strongest local attachments, and seldom wandered beyond his native township. A trip abroad did not... More > tempt him in the least. His book was the result of several journeys, but the only trip of which he tells us in detail was in October. That month, therefore, was the one I chose for my own visit to the Cape when I went to secure the series of pictures that illustrate this edition; for I wished to see the region as nearly as possible in the same guise that Thoreau describes it. From Sandwich, where his record of Cape experiences begins, and where the inner shore first takes a decided turn eastward, I followed much the same route he had travelled in 1849, clear to Provincetown, at the very tip of the hook.< Less
