Day 11 of High School in Five Months, Perspectives, and libraries

Books, film, and other forms of media, like comic books, aka graphic novels, and music can all help us see the world from a new perspective.   Books and other works that are in the public domain are made accessible by volunteer libraries, like the one compiled by LibriVox, or Project Gutenberg.   Libraries of various kinds are one of the key parts of our democracy, and therefore, of Phase I of the Four Freedoms movement :

  1. Because of a recent movie, Barnes and Noble is selling paperback copies of Little Women. I have read this and other Louisa May Alcott books for free multiple times on Project Gutenberg.

      1. Have certainly heard of Dracula but have neither seen the movie or read the book. I have seen a few cartoon Hotel Transylvania because they were on tv and I was too lazy to turn the channel to other channels where the viewing would have been even worse.

        1. The book and the film (Francis Ford Copola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula…) were both very good, but I was furious with FFC when I first read the book, as he changed so much of Mina’s story and made the vampire far more verbose than he’d actually been in the book, as I recall.
