Comments are welcome

I always welcome comments on my blogs. I would be interested in knowing if certain types of books are readable or helpful.

lézard
nom masculin
(ancien français laiserde, du latin lacertus)
Petit reptile diurne, insectivore, ayant des paupières mobiles et une queue pouvant se couper, et courant rapidement avec le ventre au contact du support.
Peau tannée de cet animal. (Les peausseries « lézard » sont fournies par les espèces tropicales de grande taille [iguanes, tégus, varans].)
Familier. Difficulté imprévue, problème.

My digital library, one book at a time

Ten books down, about 3,000 to go. I have a few hundred already scanned, but most of my library is still to go…

Well, it’s about time – I’ve finally updated some texts online. I have two types of books online: ones I have collected from other sources (as I wanted to provide a consolidated library of French ebooks) and books that are exclusive to my website.

I originally planned on including ebooks online, but as the collection of copyright-free books grew, I also include ‘exclusives which I have made available to students in classes – these include some hard-to-find originals as well as a large collection of pre-1950 text books.

I own a fairly large academic personal library – most of which is in storage at this point. I’ve been reluctant to downsize. Rather than get rid of my collection entirely, I’ve decided to try to digitize my collection.

I am currently experimenting with different ways of providing information on my books and library. I have been using Scribe.com, Issuu.com, Calameo, and others.
