A Gift For The Christmas Season

by NJB // // Lafayette, CO
Cratchit and Tiny Tim, in the Nantucket E-Book of A Christmas Carol.

When I began creating Nantucket E-Books™, I hoped it could make public-domain literature available to people using the best e-books on the planet.

With Christmas upon us, I’m proud to present a Nantucket E-Book edition of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. It will be one of the site’s Featured e-books until January 6th.

A Christmas Carol is the first e-book in a new mission for this site, adapting public-domain books into Nantucket E-Books™. Now, these books can be enjoyed on any device, with all the interactive features that make Nantucket E-Books™ so unique.

In addition, this edition of A Christmas Carol includes the excellent LibriVox audio drama, narrated by Elizabeth Klett. Meanwhile, the text is adapted from a Project Gutenberg e-book, featuring illustrations by George Williams.

With this new Nantucket E-Books™ initiative, I hope to combine the fine work of Project Gutenberg and Distributed Proofreaders, the very best audiobooks from Librivox, and the incredible power of Nantucket E-Books™.

It is rather fitting that this project start with a book about new beginnings, and rekindling our hope for the future. If you are interested in supporting this project, please visit the Nantucket E-Books™ Patreon page. Thank you all, and have a Merry Christmas!
