If you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday that’s a bit more uplifting than arguing politics, why not check out some NZ literature instead? This is brilliant:
1000 New Zealand classics released as eBooks
New Zealanders can now freely downloadâ€”and store in their pocketsâ€”hundreds of our most well-known books, courtesy of Victoria University’s New Zealand Electronic Text Centre (NZETC).
More than 1000 New Zealand electronic books (eBooks) are now available for download on the NZETC website at http://www.nzetc.org, giving people easy access to some of the great works in New Zealand literature including Katherine Mansfield’s The Garden Party and Other Stories, Bill Pearson’s Coal Flat, and Robin Hyde’s The Godwits Fly.
The New Zealand eBooks, made available using the major emerging ePub standard, represent many of the texts already accessible for online browsing on the NZETC website, and are suited to viewing on modern eBook devices such as the iPhone, Sony Reader, and IRex ILiad.
And while we’re on the subject of great things Kiwi, anyone who wants to get r0b a birthday present need look no further than the (NZ invented) YikeBike. Just deliver it to any branch office of the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy — Cheers.
