Free PDF – Reading on the OLPC laptop

I came across a useful ebook the other day. It's titled Reading and Sugar, and it's by James Simmons (I think). Sorry for being vague; I've had a number of crashes this week and one crash took my sources with it. But I did find this on the IAEP mailing list. I'd really be grateful if someone could post the correct info.

I beleive this is the first draft. That doesn't matter because it's quite useful as it is.

Reading and Sugar

P.S. It's called Reading and Sugar because OLPC is the hardware; Sugar is the operating system. I only learned about the difference in the past week, and from what I can tell there is a lot more to the Sugar development community than the software on the OLPC laptop.

  1. Nate,

    Thanks for this link! Interesting reading.

    The backmatter points to flossmanuals.net as the place to make corrections. And, for sure, “Reading and Leading with Sugar” is posted there and can be read online.

    A quick scan of the contents shows that the online version contains a section “About the Authors” that’s missing from the PDF; it mentions only James Simmons. (The credits attribute the introduction to Adam Hyde with changes made by James Simmons.)

    I also saw at least one new section online.

    Take care!

    Roger S
