E-Reading for the Computer-Bound

saundersBless you, Flavorwire!
Finding free e-reading material can be a challenge--especially for those of us unwilling to commit a device.  I don't mind scouring the web, digging around for e-stories, but the challenge of finding a story in its entirity?  By a current author?  That can maddening. But this week, Flavorwire did the digging and published a ready-made list of short stories available (for free!!) on the web.
See this???  It's the happiest website you're going to see this week, starting off with the title story of George Saunders' new book Tenth of December. (Did I mention that has a hold list?)
The list of authors is stunning and the stories?  Well, there's no waiting...
Happy Reading!
