But let us put aside this prejudice and consider David?s 1787 The Death of Socrates. Created two years […] What Makes <i>The Death of Socrates</i> a Great Work of Art?: A Thought-Provoking Reading of David?s Philosophical & Political Painting is a post from: Open Culture.

This got little attention in the English-language press, but Tolino launched a new marketing effort last #month at Frankfurt Book Fair. It is being likened to Kindle Unlimited, but Tolino Select is far more limited than a Netflix-style reading service. The way it works is that #subscribers pay 10 euros per month to choose from a selection of 40 discounted titles. The selection changes each month, and subscribers can get up to four titles each month for the ten euro fee. They're not buying the ebooks, though; subscribers just get to rad the ebooks so long as they continue to pay the monthly fee. read more...
