Sample the forthcoming eBook - 20 days of The Harvard Classics (free PDF download)

Download the 200+ page sampler

While the eBooks are still in progress, I've created a free 20 day sampler for you all to take a glimpse at what I'm working towards.

The sampler includes over 200 pages of reading material, beginning with an excerpt from Franklin's biography, and including texts from Milton, Shakespeare, Locke and more!

Simply click on the banner above to download the PDF. Share it freely with anyone you like! Post it on your blog or social media accounts! My aim is to hare the pleasure of The Harvard Classics with as many people as possible (and of course I'd love to drum up more support for our Kickstarter campaign).

Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below. I hope you enjoy the sampler and look forward to sharing the completed ebooks with you all soon.

100 Books Every Child Should Read

In celebration of National Children's Book Week, Booktrust has compiled a list of the 100 best children's books to read by the age of 14.

The exciting 100 combines an eclectic mix of traditional classics and modern greats that we believe are must-reads to fire children’s imaginations and turn them into life-long readers. The cut-off age of 14 was chosen as beyond that, children tend to progress to more adult literature.The books are divided into age-based categories, with titles ranging from The Cat in the Hat to The Hobbit and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time.
For the full list of books on one page, check out this page on Metro or visit the link below to view by age category and vote for your favourites.

Warned by Hector's Ghost

Virgil, ÆNEID

In the dead of night Hector's ghost appeared to warn Æneas of the impending doom to come upon the walled city of Troy. Æneas lifted his aged father on his back and, taking his son by the hand, sought safety in flight. Off to Latium!
(H. Schliemann, discoverer of ancient Troy, born Jan. 6, 1822.)
