    "The Shot" by Pushkin

    The second short story by Pushkin, "The Shot", is finished! 655 fragment pairs.
    This time I tried to substitute archaic forms of words and even whole words with their modern equivalents (where possible) to make reading easier.

    Meanwhile in post-Soviet Russia...
    Aglona Reader 1.3 has been released! It features a new Alternating mode of representing text.

    Someone may find it easier to read than the Normal mode. You can switch between Normal and Alternating modes from Settings window.

    "Ward No. 6", a depressive, yet very strong and thought-provoking story by Anton Chekhov, was released today in ParallelBook format.
    This story was used as an example in a Youtube video showing the three reading modes of Aglona Reader: Normal, Alternating and Advanced.

    Я только сейчас доискалась о Aglona Reader. Просто великолепный инструмент. Хотела сказать БРАВО для того, который создал эту программу. Просто молодец!

    "The Daughter of the Commandant" by Pushkin

    "The Daughter of the Commandant", a historical novel by Alexander Pushkin, is finished as a parallel book in Russian and English in PBO format and available on Aglona Reader project site.
    Although not the biggest book in this format, it is a result of work of several people: Tatiana Batura, who aligned the source texts, and two users of this forum — Sperk and me (Inego) — who translated the parts missing from the original translation by Milne-Home. Also, I have converted all proper names in the English translation according to the modern transcription rules. Today, the English translation from this parallel book is the only full English translation of the novel available in the public domain.
    Sperk — thank you very much for your help! Without it, this work could not have been finished!

    Valda, uh, there are currently NO French-Russian books in PBO format.
    You can align and share them with the community, but that requires some work You could start with some short stories.
    If you agree, just name me one and I'll send you an unaligned PBO file that you could align. Aligning stories is very quick and rewarding

    Inego, you misunderstood! That's exactly what I had in mind To do the needed work to get it aligned. I'm just not sure which book to pick.

    What about Chekhov's stories? They are the best ones to start with
    Maybe "Дама с собачкой"?

    EDIT: Alas, it seems no public domain French translations of this story available...

    EDIT2: here are some French translations from Chekhov: http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Anton_Tchekhov
