Sophie? featured book browse library

Sophie is a reading tool. It's many unique attractions are illustrated on our featured book page. All the Sophie e-books begin with an original and thought-provoking preface. The preface to the Sophie e-book released earlier this year, H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds," offers a more provocative and timely interpretation of the original science fiction classic than Steven Spielberg's new blockbuster film starring Tom Cruise.

The latest e-book, a collection of five extraordinary stories by Franz Kafka and his precursors, begins with a look at the deeper meaning of the term 'Kafkaesque.'

Sophie works on 68K Macs, Power Macs, native in OS X ,and on Windows. Our e-book reader understands standard html as well as plain text. It can read the hundreds of classic works available from the Gutenberg project and the Christian Classics Ethereal Library.*

Sophie is a joint venture of FourthWorld and rivertext. You can download Sophie and its library of 12 ebooks for free from FourthWorld's website.

*(Sophie can read plain text and html files. However, the books will not be divided into chapters. Also, some of the files in the Gutenberg library are formatted in an unusual way and you will need to open their text files in a program like MicroSoft Word and re-save them as text files.)
