I was searching for To Kill a Mockingbird as a free, full text, online download, but not finding it,... and still haven't. Then I ran across the Gutenberg Project. I can't look into it further right now, as I'm doing homework, but this looks like something that all of us 'readers and writers' might enjoy doing. No login is required just to 'look into it'. They want 'people' to proof read pages for the online offerings. Since the online offerings are FREE, that made me want to 'help out'. Also, they have LANGUAGES!... like Welsh, Scottish, and Irish. ;-) There is a 'walk though' to show what's involved in helping out. It evidently allows us to 'try out' our proof-reading skills before jumping in and doing any real damage. I'll put the links here. If anybody tries this out, please let us know what you think of it. Thanks. - jus'

I was listening to my car radio while driving a couple of days ago. I seldom do this, as I like to give my full attention to just 'driving' safely. But I was pleasantly surprised to hear the moderator refer a person who had called in regarding 'free audio downloads' to the Gutenberg Project, as they do have a few 'free audio downloads' available.

Has anyone 'checked this out' for me yet? I want to get to do proof-reading for this project, as I believe that it has 'humanitarian value'. Somebody please go click on the 'walk through' and take the proof-reader test, then let us know how it goes. - jus'

This is something I will definitely like to do
I will give it a try this weekend when I have some time alone.
I'm a violin so stop trying to make me sound like a piano!!

Dyscalculia doesn't bother me as much as all the nasty accessories that came with it
