I do like this as an aggregator very much.


this slime volleyball game I used to play got updated by a person it doesn't play IDENTICALLY AS I REMEMBER IT though so it's not quite as fun.

Hmm. Why Germany is so weak?

I use an FF/Pm extension. It can dl in mp3 but if something needs to be converted there are dedicated programs for that.

Project Gutenberg is a great website.
But Bernd really should know about it by now.

Librivox too if you want people reading project gutenberg to you!

I actually never knew about this as I was just using libgen for everything. Guessing this one is for royalty-free books only?

>Guessing this one is for royalty-free books only?

Yes, it is only for books that allowed to be published freely.


Also, archive.org has large collection of old books too. And multiple libraries in the world.

Actually, I found that finding copyrighted book in English is relatively hard task. For Russian there is flibusta, it has almost any fiction book, but there is no such big site for other languages. Maybe only libgen and that IRC channel that I forgot.

Bernd 05/02/2018 (Wed) 20:23:31 [Preview] No.16260 del
Yes. It's great for works from the 19th century.
Also as this >>16258 Bernd pointed out archive.org is great as well for that. I've got a bunch of books on the Irish Rebellion of 1798 from that site.

Very likely.
The Mysterious Island is great and assburgerish how the heroes make their living there.

But the main point was that Verne is more famous than that - and it seems outside Anglosphere well respected shitty English translations... everything is crap in English, supposedly Lord of the Rings is better in Hungarian thanks for the translators, and I believe this as in English it's shit).

Back in the days I frequently read The Straight Dope:
They answer the questions of the readers, many times doing actual research and not just checking Wikipedia. They present their findings in casual style and humorous manner. Is their answers precise? Is it really funny? You'd be the judge.

>Very likely.
>$book_by_Verne is great
I find this hard to believe. I knew the name Verne and I remembered the marketing buzz about his adventures (that are supposed to be good). [*] So, many times I tried to rationalise it by saying to myself that perhaps this was Verne's first attempt at storytelling, published a posteriori, already a known author. It really seems like something a modestly gifted 15 year old would write (it's rubbish). But it turns out it's a text from mid-to-late of his publishing life.

[*] In fact I have read a couple of his most famous titles long ago. But it's been so many years (I was basically a child), that I can hardly remember anything about them beyond the main plot. Particularly, I seem to have retained nothing in the order of judgements about the texts or the author.

>shitty English translations...
I didn't read it in English. I read a translation to another Romance language so that it was probably very close to the original.

Btw, it was pic related.

Bernd 05/05/2018 (Sat) 10:39:49 [Preview] No.16322 del
Well, you are entitled to your opinion. All the authors has/had different writing styles and many widely praised ones get criticism for various reasons.
I didn't suggested to you reading Verne so I really don't get your posts and point. I chose him as a random well known writer of the 19th century for comparison, as I stated above.

I also suggest opening a book/reading thread for discussing books and authors, be it scientific of literature.

So the English constitution wasn't just created a later date but the Magna Charta got complemented, amended and revised by later laws up to modern dates and slowly turned into a constitution?
That's sounds great actually.

Kinda, but only 3 of the original clauses are still used I think.

this is a youtube channel called history time. British guy goes into decent but not overwhelming detail about historical events. Mostly british stuff. Guys got a boner for this Aethelstan fellow.


I saw the term dievdirbys a few years ago on /v/ as a class in some chink mmo. The term seemed unique and it means god-carver in Lithuanian literally.
It's not it's own art form they're really just religious sculptors but I find that kind of stuff interesting.

I watched a recent video about the Sumers. It was all right. I don't follow historical channels but what I had exposure of they are all sound pretentious and "now I'm gonna tell the frank" style. He did not have that in that particular video.

Carvings or whittled objects are great. Well, not all, but folksy unique ones are.

Collection of maps compiled with the site's own style. Has enough detail to show points such as South Yemen's emirates or Chinese warlords.

Collection of maps from external sources, including quality ones from the US Military Academy Department of History and the 1912 Cambridge Modern History Atlas.

Military books, the vast majority of which are in Russian. A handful, however, are in English, such as Suvorov's Inside the Soviet Army and Fugate's Operation Barbarossa:

The first is an insider's thorough description of the Soviet Army, though he also writes about the ther branches. Suvorov discusses conscription (and draft dodging), training, the life of a soldier and an officer, military education, equipment, mobilization, deployment, organization and hierarchy, doctrine -including nuclear doctrine- and, most interestingly, the USSR's power structure, which he describes as a triumvirate between the Armed Forces, the Party and the intelligence service, and proves his point by narrating the post-Stalin power struggle as a battle between those three forces.
His style is easy to read and at times ironic (pic related). The site has another book of his on Soviet intelligence.

The second is a very assburgerish book on the Eastern front from planning stages to the Battle of Moscow. I found it while researching German invasion plans and haven't read much beyond the first chapter.

No idea. But many of those manuscripts and sheets are pretty colorful with nice pictures, so it's still worth it.
What would interest me is the Corvinas. More than 500 years ago Mathias I, King of Hungary had a nice library with about 500 of those books he ordered to be made and were named after him. Only 25 (or some such) survived on the Hungary or on the world what we know about I'm not sure. The Vatican may has some more.

Very good. There's also boobpedia which has the most "interesting" "facts" about porn "actresses" and other fapmaterial.
