Great Free Read: Annotated Moby Dick

We already read Moby Dick for one of our Long Summer Reads, but the Leviathan rates more than a single shot! Lower for him whenever you find yourself growing grim about the mouth, whenever it's a damp drizzly November in your soul...

The nicest way to read him is maybe an antique edition with Rockwell Kent's woodcuts, but failing that, here's another idea that has its advantages: a free online annotated version. Fire up your iPad, prop it on a pillow, and follow the whale...

This selection begins with my favorite paragraph. If I could string up a hammock in my living room to read it in, I surely would.
