"Northanger Abbey" by Jane Austen

Flixster - Share Movies

Okay, I'm really, really excited about posting this novel (we're almost done... the first 11 chapters so far). Click here to read and LISTEN to Chapter 1 of "Northanger Abby" by Jane Austen.

Anyway, what is different from other sites is that we incorporate not only the novel's text, but also visitors can click to listen to the audio as they are reading.

And, let's just say, a visitor doesn't understand a particular word within the text. Well, now all you have to do is click the word, and the definition will pop-up. FOR EVERY WORD!

It's taken a great deal of programming to complete this (what we are calling) AudioText experience, but we think it will be well worth it for students reading this classic piece of literature.

In fact, we love the ability for students to be able to define any word they click within our text so much, that we've added it to just about every etext we've posted.

Anyway, please enjoy Austen's "Northanger Abbey" and let us know what you think about our latest AudioText pages, with the enhanced ability to be able to define any word. Love that!
