People tell me all the time they would read one of my e-books, except they don’t have a Kindle or a Nook.
Then I have to explain to them they don’t have to have a Kindle or other dedicated e-reading device to be able to read e-books. There are many ways to read e-books without owning an e-reader.
The easiest way to read e-books is with your PC. That’s right, the very item you are using to read this can also be used to read e-books. And in most cases it’s free (though you still have to pay for any books your want, but some of those are free as well).

The Curfew



The Curfew is an adventure web-game created by Littleloud, published by Channel 4 and written by acclaimed comic book author, Kieron Gillen.

Set in 2027 in the heart of an authoritarian security state, The Curfew could be described as a miniature Canterbury Tales set in a not-so-distant future, where citizens must abide by government security measures and 'sub citizens' are placed under curfew at night.
The player must navigate this complex political world and engage with the characters they meet along the way to work out who they should trust in order to gain freedom.
Choose wisely and you could change the course of history. Choose poorly, and it'll be changed for you.

The Curfew: Worth Staying In For.
