The site will basically allow people to play with texts of well known classic literature books. In a similar way as the kaleidoscope allows creating a new combination of forms each time somebody moves the toy, the site will allow to create new random combinations of text.
These combinations will be based on the selection of key sentences of the books. The site invites people to experience the recreational sense of taking a content that is already known and "play" with that, likewise playing with a kaleidoscope of endless combinations.

The girls meantime spread the table, set the childrenround the fire, and fed them like so many hungry birds, laughing,talking, and trying to understand the funny broken English. <br />Little Women <br />Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically.<br />The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build<br />up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard<br />work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or<br />scramble over the obstacles. We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.<br />Lady Chatterley'sLover<br />
