  1. There's really nothing that's still in print, so you're going to have to cruise E-Bay, browse in used book stores, or stop by your library's book sale.    There wasn't much "literature" from Simplified on . . . Anniversary and before seemed to be the "golden age" for that kind of material.  Book-length  materials include "Alice in Wonderland" (rare, and usually expensive if you can find it), A. Conan Doyle's "The Sign of the Four", and "Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son".  There was also a series of booklets of varying lengths, including "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," "Rip Van Winkle", and so forth.  I have a little booklet called "Fables Written in Gregg Shorthand", and there's a little booklet written in Simplified called "The Gregg Scrap Book" with short anecdotes.    But these are all just lucky finds over the years–if you see any of them, grab them.   (There's a copy of "Alice in Wonderland" being offered on E-bay right now:   My guess is it will sell at a high price, even though the starting price is low.)   Alex

  2. I just tried looking up alice in wonderland on abe and found it…for $150. I wish there was some computer program that would replace text with short hand. Im not saying it would have to form the outlines from scratch, just match words and phrases up with already formed outlines. well thanks for the tips   -Strawman-
