Online reading spotlight

The Edgar Rice Burroughs section at the Online Literature Library. I generally do not like to read texts online because I find the format tedious, but Burroughs style of pulp fiction lends itself well to online translation. Called the grandfather of American science fiction, Burroughs is best known for his Tarzan and John Carter of Mars novels. In these works the chapters are relatively short and usually end with a cliffhanger which makes them convenient reads for the web and an easy way to kill a few minutes.

Yeah, I read the first John Carter book online last year.
