I’m constantly amazed by the number of people in my generation who have never read any of the great classics. Shakespeare, H.G. Wells, and Arthur Conan Doyle are all authors whose work I think everyone should read. With the proliferation of eReaders these days, there’s almost no reason not to read through some of the classics. However, if you don’t have such a fancy device, you can still read through these books on a site called Litfy.
Litfy may not be the only place you can go to read through public domain works, but it does have a number of features that you might not find elsewhere. For instance, you can highlight text for reading later, and add a note if you like. You can also easily share the highlighted text with any number of social sites in just a couple of clicks. My only real complaint is that I had a lot of difficulty using it on my iOS devices, as there doesn’t appear to be any sort of dedicated app. I think if there was a better way to stop reading on one device, and pick it back up on another, that this site would be even more useful than it already is.
