And if you want the orginal words with modernized spelling plus glossary and commentary you can either download the PDFs from here http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/we...hy/canterbury/ or buy the kindle book https://www.amazon.com/Canterbury-Ta.../dp/B00B13DK7K

Here's the editor's statement
The Language of this Edition
Some Chaucerians, act as if the works of the poet should be carefully kept away from the general reader and student, and reserved for those few who are willing to master the real difficulties of Middle English grammar and spelling, and the speculative subtleties of Middle English pronunciation. Others may read him in translation if they wish !

The text of this edition in modern English spelling is intended to subvert that misguided notion. It is designed for those readers in school, university, living room or commuter train who would like to read or re-read Chaucer as readily as they can read or re-read other classics in English; readers who do not want the vagaries of archaic Middle English spelling, nor yet a flat translation. Very few scholars now read Shakespeare in the spelling of his day, but all readers of Chaucer are forced to read him in the spelling of his day, and this is a great obstacle for most people. This edition is meant to supply a version of Chaucer that avoids both simple translation or scholarly archaism. This edition is not a translation. The grammar, the syntax, and the vocabulary of this modspell edition remain essentially unchanged from the language of the original. Everything is Chaucer’s except for the spelling. Hence it can also be used as an accompanying or preliminary text by those who wish to master Chaucer's dialect as it is displayed in scholarly editions.
That look's like an excellent idea.I've download the PDFs and will buy the Kindle version if everything looks good.

Well, a glass of wine helps with most things. Not actually required for Chaucer, though.
It really is readable. Some of the tales are very funny, ok not all of them. Somewhere I have a vinyl disc of a reading, sounds like a heavy Northern accent.

Steinbeck's Tortilla Flat is $1.99 at Amazon.

Not my favorite of his books, but I did enjoy it. He mixes his love of King Arthur and the down and outs in California farming communities:

Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a “Camelot” on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude.

If anyone already has the Short Novels of John Steinbeck collection, it has Tortilla Flat.

Occupied, by Joss Sheldon is $3.99 at Amazon


Here is the editor's statement

Quote:
Step into a world which is both magically fictitious and shockingly real. Walk side-by-side with a refugee, native, occupier and economic migrant. And watch on as the world around you transforms from a halcyon past into a dystopian future.

Inspired by the occupations of Palestine, Kurdistan and Tibet, and by the corporate occupation of the west, ‘Occupied’ is a haunting glance into a society which is a little too familiar for comfort.

Powerful, dark, dystopian and magical; Occupied truly is a unique piece of literary fiction…

Amazon Rapids, the chat fiction for kids, is now free

Quote:
Amazon Rapids, the chat fiction that encourages kids to read by presenting stories in the form of text message conversations, is now going free. Previously, Amazon had been charging $2.99 per month for a subscription that allows unlimited access to its story collection, which now numbers in the hundreds.

First launched in November 2016, Amazon Rapids was meant to capitalize on kids’ interest in chat fiction apps like Hooked, Yarn, Tap and others, which tend to cater to a slightly older teenage crowd. Amazon Rapids, meanwhile, was the schoolager-appropriate version, without the swearing, alcohol, sex and yeah, even incest references you’ll find in the Hooked app, for example. (Yuck. Delete.)

Instead, Amazon Rapids’ stories are aimed at kids ages 5 to 12 and generally just silly and fun. They’re not meant to addict kids through the use of cliffhangers and timeouts, nor are they scary.
