Are The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and other Oz stories by L. Frank Baum books you wished you had read as a child but didn't? Book you've been meaning to read but haven't managed to sit down and take the time? Or perhaps they are treasured childhood memories. We're reading through the Oz books, a little at a time. By friending this community, you'll be able to read excerpts from the books (under a cut, of course!) on your friends page.
This is made possible through the work done by Project Gutenberg which publishes books now free of copyright to their site for free download.
Comments to the excerpts are welcome and encouraged. However, if your comment will include spoilers for those who have never read the books, please create a new post and put said spoilers behind an LJ cut.
Because of the nature of the material, it is possible that children might read this community. So let's keep it PG at least, and try to keep your language clean.
Promotion of unrelated communities is not welcome.
Promotion of related communities, for example, other book-related, or Oz-related communities is allowed, graphics behind a cut. A post (by you) in your community promoting ours is expected.
Posts about other Oz-related stuff, artwork, icons, crafts or collections are ok. But please put all pictures behind an LJ cut.
