You are a high school student and you have to read Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, for you literature lesson. Also you have an examination that include a comment about this book.

Searching for the book you have visited your school but there are not available it because all of them have been given to your colleges. You do not have the book. You are feeling desesperate because the time is running out and it is impossible for you go to the city and buy one there, also it is so expensive and you are saving your money for a bike.

So you decide ask to your librarian. She told you that in Internet this book is available and she invite you to look for it using the school computer. She told you something about a website where are many books free!!

She search a web in the computer and next she left you alone with it.
