A 3 layer Birthday Cake

With Frosting

May I suggest that you partake of the layers in this order?

  1. Voyage of the Liberdade by Joshua Slocum
    Find the book at Gutenberg Press
    “Project Gutenberg offers over 50,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online.
    We carry high quality ebooks: Our ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers. We digitized and diligently proofread them with the help of thousands of volunteers.
    No fee or registration is required, but if you find Project Gutenberg useful, we kindly ask you to donate a small amount so we can buy and digitize more books. Other ways to help include digitizing more books, recording audio books, or reporting errors.
    Over 100,000 free ebooks are available through our Partners, Affiliates and Resources”.

    Find the book in all available forms (HTML, EPub, Text, Kindle) at: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18541
    The text file is here: http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/18541/pg18541.txt
    First create an espeak of the text file:
    Voyage of the Liberdade by Joshua Slocum
    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18541
    To create an espeak run this commmand against the text file:

    espeak -f location_text -w output_file_here(.whatever_extension_you_want)

    Or read the book old school

It was nice to hear Project Gutenberg and Librivox get some publicity. They are two of the most worthwhile projects on the innerwebs.
