For nearly free scholarly versions of Walden check thrift stores. Walden is usually included in textbook anthologies of American literature. The excellent Variorum Walden by Walter Harding is commonly used and discarded by college students. Anyone seriously interested in Walden will eventually need Jeffrey Cramer's Walden -- A Fully Annotated Edition.

Our new links page.

I've just had a look at the new links page, and I would also encourage members to use it.
The new version is clear, easy to use, and packed with useful information.

Thanks Chris, and well done! :smile:

Walden is available free at http://thoreau.eserver.org/walden00.html and http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/205

As I said previously, I like the comparison between Thoreau, Yeats, Jung and Heidegger as solitary thinkers who were in touch with nature.

I wasn't going to join in on the readingm 'cause I'm working on War & Peace with Barnes n' Noble, as well as the 'one-chapter-a-day' blog with Matt.

But I seem to be caught up with everybody on that, so I went looking for another book and decided to do Walden right here.

Here's where I'm getting my text and audio . . .

I listened to Parts 1 & 2 of 'Economy' last night and enjoyed hearing it again.

It isn't my first time for Walden - we did it at our library group a couple of years ago.

Yes, there are quite a number of similar sites starting up across many domains focusing primarly on classic literature that belongs in the public domain.

I have found that the formatting of the text is a major issue, readability usually is with classics anyway.

Openculture has a good set of links but even this only touches the surface:

Remember always to be skeptical of what you are downloading, you should not have to give out any personal information!
