Moby Dick Online: blogs, essays, editions, etc.

Starting this collection of resources

Joyce Carol Oates on Moby-Dick: http://www.usfca.edu/jco/mobydickanamericanbookofwonders/
A fabulous account of the book’s greatness and flaws.

Jane Nesmith: http://jcnwritersnotebook.blogspot.com/2013/02/missing-moby-dick.html
Great list of interesting (but not so famous) aspects of the book.

MobyDick: The Big Read. Audio files for every chapter. http://www.mobydickbigread.com
Innovative participatory project, but I love Frank Mueller reading the book, via Audible: http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_1?asin=B002V8L3RI&qid=1377551405&sr=1-1

MobyDickTheWhale.com: http://www.mobydickthewhale.com/about-moby-dick/about-moby-dick.htm

Nice literacy narrative about encountering the book, slowly coming to love it. The site also tracks readership, and creates a chapter cloud based on visits. "Loomings," not surprisingly, is out in front.

If you need a copy of Moby-Dick, Project Gutenberg has ebooks for free in various formats: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2701

Reactions in a blog from somebody just getting started: http://www.avidly.org/2012/09/20/a-smart-dude-reads-moby-dick-episode-1/

Reading in a Participatory Age: Remixing Moby-Dick is available through Google Books; many examples of how readers interact with this monster of a text and make it their own (although I think the book always wins out) :http://books.google.com/books?id=xsagScMs9t0C&pg=PT18&dq=reading+in+a+participatory+age&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=3#v=onepage&q=reading%20in%20a%20participatory%20age&f=false
