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.

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

In 2017, I learned the Bootstrap responsive website design framework and subsequently consolidated to have just one set of files for each story. I also moved the stories to Silbird.com which gives a hint of flying high and as freely as you want in the reading arena.
