Literature is news that stays news.
«ABC of Reading» by Ezra Pound, 1934
In a serendipitous event, I stumbled upon a 50 volumes book series on works of world literature, important speeches, and historical documents (thank’s Wikipedia for the download link — and the summary).
Judging from a quick glance, it looks interesting, especially considering that today, you don’t have to buy an actual paper book but can just download the PDFs. And yeah, even it they were made to «sell» education.
Now if I only had more time. 😉
