Welcome


In 2010, I came across Project Gutenberg where you can find thousands of interesting stories to read free of charge. So, I decided to help by selecting some of the stories and formatting them for easy reading on mobile phones and tablets: one set of images for phones and one set for tablets. I also tried as much as possible to search and include audio and video elements, so that you can watch, listen to, or read a story.

The first story I published was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll on February 8, 2011. On May 2, 2012, I moved the story to a permanent place on Goldenstories.mobi. Since then, I have added hundreds of stories on the website.

In 2017, because the advance in internet technologies finally enables images to automatically resize to fit different screen sizes, I consolidated the files to just one set, and also moved the stories to Silbird.com. I like this domain name because it suggests flying high as freely as you want, which parallels the idea of reading as much as you want for free.
