This is the latest post in a series that will, in effect, create a library of classics that are available as free ebooks.
Yesterday marked the 450th birthday of William Shakespeare! We honor the occasion by offering a number of our favorite works of his!
We are encouraging our readers to mix up their reading habits, and read (or re-read) classics in addition to new books, such as the ones we review here in the ERB.
Broadly speaking, a classic is any book that is not a new book, or in other words that is worth reading five, ten or even one hundred years after its initial publication. ERB Editor Chris Smith has an article on The Huffington Post website arguing for reading a mix of classics and new books in 2013.
