The research consisted of three distinct steps: (1) A survey to detect teachers' and students' computer skills, their use of computers and accessibility; (2) Search and list websites where users can either read or download Brazilian literature books; and (3) Workshops on where and how to access these books. This research is also intended to reflect upon electronic books and their impact on reading.
