Good Literature and Homeschooling Links
Project Gutenberg: Over 15,000 ebooks, many of them classics. A really great site. They also have some audio versions that you can download for free.
Questia.com: For the serious researcher and/or research-paper writer. This is an excellent, excellent site! It requires a paid subscription but it is well worth the price. On this site you can research thousands and thousands of academic books, and search all the texts of each of those books for the topic you are looking for. The complete text is available for you to read. This is great for older students writing papers (both high school and college) or anyone interested in doing serious research. The tools that go along with this service are incredible. You can highlight important quotes, make notes to yourself, write papers, etc. The site also provides Flash demonstrations. I can't recommend this site highly enough. You can pay a monthly fee or a yearly one (about $99.00) for full access to this on-line library and research tool.
NEW!!! LiteralSystems Audiobook Recordings: This is an excellent site with many, many free downloadable audio recordings of classic poems, stories and even books.
The Literary Encyclopedia: This is a great site! It is the product of over 1,000 university scholars from all over the world. You can search by people, topic or works.
Wired for Books: This site has lots of audios of classic works including stories by Edgar Allan Poe, "A Christmas Carol" by Dickens, classic poems, MacBeth by Shakespeare and more.
Answers.com: The main thing I like about this site is that it provides an audio pronunciation of words in the dictionary it uses. This is a great feature for students (and adults) when they come across words that are difficult to pronounce.
Fact Monster: Despite the ads and the annoying color scheme this is a great site. I've found information here that I have not been able to find anywhere else.
LitQuotes: This a great site for literary quotes. This site has thousands of quotes from great works of literature and one of the things I like about it is that they are not all short quotes.
The Literature Page: From their site: "The Literature Page is your place to read classic books, plays, stories, poems, essays, and speeches online, brought to you by the creators of The Quotations Page (see link below). Our collection currently includes 233 works from 85 authors. We add new titles regularly."
Today in Literature: Great Books, Great Stories, Every Day: This site offers stories about the current date in the history of literature. You can view these stories on the site or have them emailed to you daily (as of Sept. 17, a $10.00 per year fee is charged for the daily emails).
Authorama: Public Domain Books: Lots of public domain books you can read on-line or off.
The History Guide: A good site for the serious-minded history student put together by Steven Kreis, a college professor. 10 years of lectures exploring the development of civilization.
Repeat After Us: A site with full texts and recordings of many books. Free Access. Click here.
Webliography : The Literary 100: Children's Authors. Lots of information on many of our best-loved children's authors. Click here.
The Quotation's Page: Over 22,000 quotes from 2,600 authors.
eThemes: This is part of a larger site (eMints National Center). Though this site is not only about literature and authors there are lots of resources here. Mainly it lists links, but they have good descriptions with the links so you'll have some idea of what you're getting into before you get there. The eMINTS National Center is a collaborative education program sponsored by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the University of Missouri Office of Academic Affairs.
Theraputic Homeschooling: The author, Karen S. Petz writes, "What is Therapeutic Homeschooling? It's a term my husband devised for what I do: Blending Waldorf Education at home with managing my daughter's bipolar disorder; making sure that my daughter's education isn't undermined by her bipolar disorder; and insuring that she is successful in her daily endeavors as well as her yearly goals." An interesting and informative site from an open and honest mother of a child with bipolar disorder.
