Two little boys were at play one day when a Fairy suddenly appeared before them and said:
“I have been sent to give you New Year presents.”
She handed to each child a package, and in an instant was gone.
Carl and Philip opened the packages and found in them two beautiful books, with pages as pure and white as the snow when it first falls.
Many months passed and the Fairy came again to the boys.
“I have brought you each another book?”
“and will take the first ones back to Father Time who sent them to you.”
“May I not keep mine a little longer?”
“I have hardly thought about it lately.
I'd like to paint something on the last leaf that lies open.”
said the Fairy;
“I must take it just as it is.”
“I wish that I could look through mine just once,”
“I have only seen one page at a time, for when the leaf turns over it sticks fast, and I can never open the book at more than one place each day.”

Why is it locked?
We employ a team of editors who ensure that our technology has properly converted each book into its new Literal format.
We are also a scrappy young startup looking to make sure that we spend our resources wisely.
This means that in some cases we only edit and publish small portions of a book to begin with.
This lets us save on costs and helps focus our efforts on completing only the books that paying customers actually want to read.
