A Voyage to India by Gonçalo M. Tavares, Rhett McNeil (Translation) Requirements: .ePUB reader, 577 KB Overview: A Voyage to India is the story of Bloom, our hero, as he makes his way from Lisbon to India in a decidedly non-heroic age. Gone are the galleons, gone is god; so too the swords of the swashbuckler and sacerdotal certainty. In such an era, where is wisdom to be found? Bloom-ever deliberate, ever longwinded-takes his time getting to India, stopping first in London, then Paris and elsewhere in Europe, making friends, encountering enemies, recounting his life story, revealing the reasons for his flight from Lisbon and his vague hopes for and nagging fears about what he might find in India. Or within himself. His is a melancholic itinerary, an attempt to learn and forget. As our narrator flatly declares: “Life proceeds and is monstrous.” Parodying The Lusiads, Luis de Camoes’s sixteenth-century Portuguese epic of seafaring exploration and naval prowess, Tavares’s poem is a solemn requiem of sorts, an investigation into the psyche of humankind in a world where the advance of technology outpaces our ability (or desire) to theorize it, the search for wisdom has been abandoned, and old imperialist dreams have revealed themselves to be a postcolonial nightmare. Genre: Fiction > General Fiction/Classics
2 Romance Novels by Carolyne Aarsen Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.43 MB Overview: CAROLYNE AARSEN has been writing stories almost as long as she has been reading them, and has wanted to write a book for most of her life. When she could finally write “The End” on her first, she realized, to her dismay, that it wasn’t. Three rewrites later turned it into a book that was finally marketable. What she learned along the way was to write a story that was true to what she believed and was the kind of book she liked to read. Her writing stems from her life’s experiences. Living in a tiny cabin with five children in remote British Columbia, opening their home to numerous foster children, helping her husband build the house they now live in, working with their cattle on their ranch in northern Alberta—all become fodder for yet more stories to come. Carolyne hopes her writing will show that our Christian life is a growing, changing relationship with God and a constant fight with our own weakness. Thankfully, God keeps taking us back.

Perrault’s Fairy Tales by Gustave Doré Requirements: – reader, 3.7 Mb Overview: Here are the original eight stories from the 1697 volume Contes de temps passé by the great Charles Perrault (1628–1703) in a translation that retains the charming and unsentimental simplicity that has won Perrault a permanent position in French literature. These were among the earliest versions of some of our most familiar fairy tales (“Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Tom Thumb”) and are still among the few classic re-tellings of these perennial stories.
In addition to the five well-known tales listed above, Perrault tells three others that are sure to delight any child or adult: “The Fairies,” a short and very simple tale of two sisters, one sweet and one spiteful; “Ricky of the Tuft,” a very unusual story of a brilliant but ugly prince and a beautiful but stupid princess; and “Blue Beard,” a suspense story perhaps more famous as a classic thriller than as a fairy tale. The witty verse morals that Perrault included in the original edition (often omitted in later reprintings) are retained here in verse translations.
