“This is definitely my favourite classic, I loved the dark atmosphere of the book, and the setting being Notre-Dame, which is one of my favourite places in Paris. It's not entirely dark and horrible, there are times when it can be humorous, but it's brutal in terms of showing what obsession can become when it's misunderstood as love and the true form of love shown by other characters.” Leah

“I read and reread this for as much as I can, I love it that much. Set in 15th century Paris, it's unlike any other classic. “ Kristin

PRAISE FOR JANE EYRE
“Brontë's heart-wrenching story tells the tale of the eponymous orphan Jane Eyre as she goes from abusive childhood to turbulent romance.” Stylist

WUTHERING HEIGHTS
“Wuthering Heights, to my mind, is the greatest love story ever told. Emily Brontë's writing is unforgettably lyrical, passionate and so accomplished” Tara Moore Novelicious.com

PRIDE & PREJUDICE
“I was quickly hooked by the flawed, wonderfully drawn characters, the razor-sharp picture of an oppressively class-bound culture, and the strong woman at the center who skillfully wove her way through all the genteel perils. I read Pride and Prejudice about once every five years, swept away by the witty developments as Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy struggle to love and acceptance.” Mary C. Curtis, The Charlotte Observer

MIDDLEMARCH
“Everything she might need to know about marriage, about love, about life itself, was encompassed in the novel’s pages.” Rebecca Mead ‘Middlemarch and Me’ New Yorker

In a camp site off the beaten track they serendipitously meet Roberts, a charming hulk of a man who takes them under his wing and wins their confidence, despite his own troubled past. After spending some enchanting days in Roberts’ company exploring the idyllic wilds of California, the ever-anticipated and seemingly ever-forestalled return eventually comes to pass – yet only after the two women develop, in their own way, a strong bond with the stranger. But once in Santa Barbara will Sascha’s husband have changed his drunken, abusive ways and control his jealousy, and will the mother ever escape his wrath and find the complicated kind of freedom she discovered in the redwoods with Roberts?

The Definitive Edition of THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY
-complete 1891 edition with beautiful period photos and preface by Wilde
-formatted for kindle to improve your reading experience
-linked table of contents to reach your chapter quickly

“If you haven’t read this book, you should. It's hands down the most quotable novel I have ever read.” Litchick

“The story is absolutely brilliant. My goodness, how can anyone not like Oscar Wilde? Another entry in my all time favorite list!” Tanu Das

“Be careful what you wish for. Dorian Gray is an irresistibly handsome (and utterly selfish) socialite concerned with superficialities of the ego: appearance, beauty, passion, youth and image. Upon getting his portrait painted by a friend, Gray expresses his desire that he remain as young and handsome as he is in the picture, while the portrait instead be the one to age.” Laurel

“The exquisitely handsome Gray prays for eternal good looks as his portrait is being painted. Thus his picture ages and withers while he remains an Adonis "made out of ivory and rose leaves" despite the corrupt and dissolute life that he starts to lead.” Robert McKie, The Guardian

“The Picture of Dorian Gray is a haunting, Gothic novel that combines beautiful writing with a deceptively simple plot. It’s a thoughtful and thoroughly enjoyable cautionary tale.” Pretty Books

“The furor was unsurprising: no work of mainstream English-language fiction had come so close to spelling out homosexual desire. The opening pages leave little doubt that Basil Hallward, the painter of Dorian’s portrait, is in love with his subject. . . . Wilde went to prison not because he loved young men but because he flaunted that love, and “Dorian Gray” became the chief exhibit of his shamelessness. “ Alex Ross, The New Yorker

THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY is Oscar Wilde’s masterpiece and his only published novel. It was extremely controversial when it was first published and now here is your chance to read this important work in the expanded 1891 edition, specially formatted for Kindle. This edition includes Wilde’s famous preface on the role of the artist.

“It is Poe’s greatest work.” Jorge Luis Borges

“Part sea story, part adventure story, part horror story. A young man who runs away to sea and gets more than he bargained for. Mutiny, shipwreck, cannibalism, and that’s just for starters.” Dfordoom

“Combine Robert Louis Stevenson with Jules Verne and you have Edgar Allen Poe’s classic adventure tale of The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. In some ways this sole novel of Edgar Allen Poe is an extraordinary shipboard adventure filled with pirates and mutineers and in others it is a glimpse into fantastical imagined worlds similar to ones we have seen in works of Jules Verne.” Booknblues

THE NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM OF NANTUCKET is one of the most exciting and fascinating adventures of all time. Presented in a beautiful edition, specially designed for kindle, this is Poe’s masterpiece and his only complete novel, which will stay with you forever.

“All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called 'Huckleberry Finn’. It's the best book we've had. All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since." Ernest Hemingway

“Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is indeed a brilliant piece of classic literature everybody should read at least once in their life time.” Anne Nikoline

“One can read it simply as a straightforward adventure story in which two comrades of convenience, the parentally abused rascal Huck and fugitive slave Jim, escape the laws and conventions of society on a raft trip down the Mississippi. Alternatively, it’s a subversive satire in which Twain uses the only superficially naïve Huck to comment bitingly on the evils of racial bigotry, religious hypocrisy, and capitalist greed he observes in a host of other largely unsympathetic characters.” George Saunders

“One of the thousand books everyone must read” The Guardian

ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is one of the greatest books of all time, presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle. This is Twain’s masterpiece which will stay with you forever.

“My all-time favorite work of fiction. I usually read this every summer.” Doug

“Mark Twain's story of a boy's life in a small town on the Mississippi River is worth reading for many reasons. First of all, it is just plain fun.” David Bonesteel

“An orphan, Tom is brought up "respectable" by his Aunt Polly. His adventures are a series of boyish pranks and escapades — unlike Huck, he is a great reader of romance: particularly Dumas. He is also, although only some 12 years old, interested in the other kind of romance: notably his sweetheart Becky Thatcher.” John Sutherland

“Tom Sawyer had an ecstatic familiarity, as if I had somehow grown the story myself; it seemed exactly calibrated to assuage my chronic boredom, to feed my dreams and obsessions.” Andrea Lee

THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is one of the greatest books of all time, presented in a beautiful edition specially designed for kindle. This is Twain’s masterpiece presented will all the illustrations that it was first published with. Read this classic as it was meant to be read!

'The greatest romance writer of all time, witty and real, superb characters and dialogue. Excellent value for money and brilliant reading. Properly formatted for kindle.' Literary Classics

"My favourite writer is Jane Austen, and I've read all her books so many times I've lost count.” J. K. Rowling

“While the English language is read, the world will always be provided with souls who can enjoy the rare excellence of that rich legacy left to them by her genius.” The Atlantic

“Six novels and six entirely different love stories . . . Like Shakespeare, with each new work Austen seemed to react against an earlier one. Having created the most archly amusing woman in fiction in Pride and Prejudice, she built the next book, Mansfield Park, around a heroine who must spend much of the time being silent.” John Mullan, The Guardian

“One of the 1000 books everyone must read” The Guardian

“This is my absolute favorite of Jane Austen's world. This is a love story about two people who find each other again despite time, age difference, different station, and societal expectations.” Jenny Colvin

“Anne Eliot is twenty-seven, so from the modern perspective, she is still on the young side, but she doesn't read that way. Anne is a mature woman. She's been through some things. She has survived. The key here is that she's survived intact. She didn't lose herself in disappointment. She didn't change herself or compromise her principles. She doesn't get the nineteenth century equivalent of a bikini-wax and new wardrobe and suddenly all her problems disappear. This is an inward journey with her; a complex, thoughtful one that at times is very funny and others full of sadness and disappointment.” Elizabeth

“Pride and Prejudice has long been my favorite Austen, but after several rereadings, I think that PERSUASION may have overtaken it at the top of the list (or at least equaled it). The heroine, Anne Elliot, is quiet and unassuming and the story of her romance with Captain Wentworth could hardly be more different from that between Elizabeth and Darcy, yet it is perhaps more deeply felt and written.” Margaret

PERSUASION is a specially issued release to mark the anniversary of one of the greatest romance novels ever written. This edition is beautifully presented with classic illustrations. Now is your chance to read or re-read the book that has won millions of readers’ hearts.

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“Northanger Abbey is a jeu d'esprit, in which vivid girlish affection is turned to something deeper by a teasing lover, Henry Tilney. In this novel from her own youth, Austen created a teenage heroine who keeps making mistakes, but whose impressionability is loveable to the hero as well as the reader. “ John Mullan

“But this is one of my favorites because it is so fun and light. It's breezy, and this may sound weird, but I think it most shows what Jane would have been like as a friend.” Misty

“Jane Austen’s first novel tells the story of Catherine Morland, the very ideal of a nice girl. But her naïve heroine is also in possession of an overactive imagination, fueled by her obsession with gothic novels. When Catherine meets Henry Tilney, she’s instantly smitten. But when she’s invited to his home, the sinister Northanger Abbey, she learns not to interpret the world through the pages of lurid thrillers.” Booking in Heels

“One of the 1000 books everyone must read” The Guardian

“I love Ms Austen’s humorous style of writing, and I felt I was more in tune with it in Mansfield Park than I was when reading Emma. From the misguided characters, their social struggles to the descriptions of dainty ladies that can’t even walk a mile without being tired, Ms Austen’s writing gripped me and urged me to keep on reading.” Nyx Book Reviews

“Mansfield Park is one of the deepest and most rewarding of Austen's books.” Margaret

“The heroine, Fanny Price, is unusual for Austen; unlike the confident, clever heroines like Elizabeth, Emma, and the Dashwood sisters, Fanny has no real talents, except that she is kind, a good listener, helpful, and tries to do the right thing.” Jessica

“One of the 1000 books everyone must read” The Guardian

“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.”― Jane Austen, Emma

“Emma is absolutely wonderful. It rivals Pride and Prejudice for my most-favored Austen. Emma Woodhouse, a sheep in the clothing of a wolf in the clothing of a sheep, is perhaps Austen's most perfectly-developed protagonist. She is complex, witty, scathing, and, in the context of the author's oeuvre, atypically un-self-aware.” Kate

“Emma Woodhouse is rich, handsome and spoiled. She tries to arrange other people's lives, but with such blithe misperception and - alas - snobbery, that she succeeds only in damaging them, and her own in the process. Or nearly: she learns her mistake and gets her reward for doing so, in the gentlemanly shape of Mr Knightley.” A C Grayling

“I love every second of reading Emma, and frequently laugh out loud at the characters, who come alive off the pages with their perfectly nuanced dialogue accompanied by the always pithy narrative voice.” Book Snob

“Yet, Austen is the consummate storyteller. She excels at brewing tempests in teapots, at creating solid plots from the floss of country gentility. And, although her internal cynic is strong, she has the tenderest of hearts. “ Chalk the Sun

“NUMBER 1 in Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels of the 20th Century”

“Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century.” New York Times

‘"Ulysses" is perhaps the most written about book ever after the Bible, which should tell you something. It's definitely a better read.’ The Economist

"In the last pages of the book, Joyce soars to such rhapsodies of beauty as have probably never been equaled in English prose fiction." Edmund Wilson, The New Republic

UYLSSES is. James Joyce’s astonishing masterpiece, one of the greatest works of the 20th Century, presented here in a specially designed edition for your kindle. A book of amazing life, it is at times bawdy, funny, moving, and like life rich in complexity and detail.

“Dubliners is truly an amazing collection of short stories . . . When I read and reread Joyce, I feel like I can come back to it a million times plus one and still find something new and enriching in it.” Read A Book Review

'Joyce's early short stories remain undimmed in their brilliance' Sunday Times

“Each of the 15 stories is perfection, culminating in probably the finest short story in English, "The Dead".” Brenda Maddox

“Joyce's Dublin is a village filled with dreamers and chancers whom he placed in a kind of cage” Colm Tóibín The Guardian

DUBLINERS is a book of 15 stunning short stories set in turn of the century Dublin. It includes "The Dead", described by Graham Greene as the finest short story in the English language. James Joyce is considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. He transformed literature forever with ‘Ulysses’ and ‘Finnegans Wake’ and ‘Dubliners’ is his first masterpiece.

AND HIS ONLY NOVEL "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket"

PLUS HIS ESSAYS as well as biographical essays on Poe

“No library is complete without Mr. Poe. There is no other author or poet that quite captures the outré with such lush, black elegance. Everyone is familiar with the captivating, uncomfortably engrossing horror tales such as "The Pit and the Pendulum" and "The Red Death": stories that draw you into the depths of plain human terror, both logical and superstitious, real and imagined. Yet his complete works are more varied than running the full spectrum of human fear, bringing us the first detective story with "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", the adventure-horror story that went on to inspire Lovecraft, among others, with "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym", and many other various examinations of the sciences of humanity from the era. For these reasons, I recommend a book like this that compiles his entire body of work-- it really is more worth it than simply sticking to the known tales and a few select, more popular poems.” Natalina

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“Exquisite writing as usual with Dickens. Sentence composition beyond my wildest dreams. I did not know comedy could be that pleasurable to read. I recommend this book to the utmost high for a rolling good time.” Carlie

“It’s a joyous, jolly book, bursting with vitality. I feel jollier just having written about it” Radhika Jones Time Magazine

“A series of loosely-connected vignettes centering around the adventures (misadventures is probably more apt) of Mr. Pickwick and his fellow Pickwick Clubbers Messrs. Snodgrass, Winkle and Tupman (not to mention his able and unforgetable servant Sam Weller) as they travel the countryside making friends, getting into trouble and sowing chaos, good cheer or simple bemusement.” PhiloBiblos

THE PICKWICK PAPERS is Charles Dickens’ first novel full of the incredible characters and humour that made him famous. This is Dickens’ comic masterpiece presented as it was meant to be read, with original illustrations from its first publication.

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“Dickens's tale of love and revolution in London and Paris is among his finest, both intimate and epic in scale” The Observer

“Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities thrives on tension and conflict, all set against a bloody backdrop of the French Revolution . . . Through the senses, Dickens transports us deeper and deeper into another era with each turn of the page. Smell the acidity of red wine as it spills on the streets and ominously stains the faces, hands and feet of peasants who lap it up in desperation; feel the competing emotions of heartache and hope as one of Lucie's suitors stands trial; hear the cries of the raging mob and the clangs of their weapons as they storm the Bastille; see the glint of the guillotine as it falls swiftly to its victim below. The novel's sense of urgency and intimacy will draw you in and propel you through one of the most tumultuous times in history.” Oprah’s Book Club

A TALE OF TWO CITIES is one of the most profound and exciting novels of all time. It has been made into film and television adaptations, and its famous lines "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done" have entered into the language. This is Dickens’ masterpiece presented as it was meant to be read, with all the original illustrations.

PRAISE FOR DRACULA
“Twilight's anaemic adolescent bloodsuckers look paler than ever next to the primal horror of Stoker's 1897 creation: a ruby-lipped ancient who corrupts the flower of Victorian womanhood, and threatens the heart of the empire itself. “ Lettie Ransley, The Observer

FRANKENSTEIN
“The novel of "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus," is undoubtedly, as a mere story, one of the most original and complete productions of the age. We debate with ourselves in wonder as we read it, what could have been the series of thoughts, what could have been the peculiar experiences that awakened them, which conducted in the author's mind, to the astonishing combination of motives and incidents and the startling catastrophe which compose this tale.” Percy Bysshe Shelley

CARMILLA
“Carmilla is a must read for any true fan of vampire fiction, not just because it is a good read, but because of how it has influenced so many other stories in this genre, most notably Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula.” Lovevampires.com

THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU
"The Island of Dr. Moreau takes us into an abyss of human nature. This book is a superb piece of storytelling." V.S. Pritchett

“Jealousy, loneliness, and unrequited love all play a part in this moving human drama, set against the towering backdrop of a timeless Parisian landmark.” Daily Lit

“This is definitely my favourite classic, I loved the dark atmosphere of the book, and the setting being Notre-Dame, which is one of my favourite places in Paris. It's not entirely dark and horrible, there are times when it can be humorous, but it's brutal in terms of showing what obsession can become when it's misunderstood as love and the true form of love shown by other characters.” Leah

“I read and reread this for as much as I can, I love it that much. Set in 15th century Paris, it's unlike any other classic. “ Kristin

THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE-DAME is one of the most exciting and beautiful gothic love stories and adventures of all time.

“Jane Eyre is a fantastic character – independent, honest, blunt and dignified . . . Jane Eyre was a surprising novel to me in every way and I adored it” prettybooks blog

“Brontë's heart-wrenching story tells the tale of the eponymous orphan Jane Eyre as she goes from abusive childhood to turbulent romance.” Stylist

“What drew me into this book from the very first page was that Jane’s life from childhood onwards was presented and that made the tale both relevant and accessible. Mr Rochester was one of the first “bad boys” I’d ever read in literature. He was brooding, mysterious, secretive, misunderstood – and I loved that about him. And I loved the fact that Jane was plain and didn’t have any special qualities except her character. I could relate to that!” Malorie Blackman, The Daily Telegraph

“I really loved Villette - more so than Jane Eyre I think.” Maggie

“This may be my favourite book by the Brontë sisters . . . I really enjoyed the book, and am surprised to see that it isn’t nearly as popular as Jane Eyre, because Charlotte far surpasses her skills as an author and storyteller in this novel” Jules’ Book Reviews

“Lucy is an introverted, isolated, sarcastic heroine; she is extremely practical but not good at showing emotion. In fact, I think she’d rather just pretend she doesn’t have them. In addition, she mocks her “friends” mercilessly. All told, I found her completely relatable, even though she’s not the classical example of a perfect heroine. The back of the book promises two relationships: one with a doctor who frequents the pensione and the other with an irascible, emotional teacher.” A Girl Walks Into A Bookstore blog

“With neither friends nor family, Lucy Snowe sets sail from England to find employment in a girls' boarding school in the town of Villette. There she struggles to retain her self-possession in face of unruly pupils, an initially suspicious headmaster and her complex feelings, first for the school's English doctor and then for a dictatorial professor.” The Guardian

VILLETTE is the story of Lucy Snowe, Charlotte Brontë’s unique and vivid heroine. Read one of the greatest novels of all time in a beautifully presented edition specially designed for kindle. This is a book by the author of Jane Eyre which will stay with you forever.

WATER (literary fiction)

'A page turner.’ -- Matthew Collings

"A great read, romantic, and a little tragic, I wanted to know how it all turned out ... The story is very funny and well written." Book Devourer

"A pacey and satisfying story punctuated by amusing and at times meaningful reflections about love, life and art." Swiss

"Dark humour, a self-conscious young artist falling in and out of love with disastrous consequences." Chris Child

'I love this book because it is so true . . . But the book is also funny. It is written in a breathless, bitty style which reminds me of Dunthorne's Submarine. The main character is egotistical but somehow you love him because he tries so hard to please others' Paloma

'A sort of absurdist, amoral fable ... There is something exquisitely tragic about Water's life, a repetitive parade of posh restaurants, press views and disinterested flings. Ultimately, he's a tad boring - not something you could say about the novel he stars in.' Richard Godwin, Literary Review

“Hilarious reading ... it's hard not to like him.” Dogmatika.com

Can success buy happiness or is love more important?

Find out in this quirky funny novel written and illustrated by the acclaimed artist Jasper Joffe.

Meet Nathaniel Water 
A young artist with a complicated love life and a character you won’t forget once you’ve got to know him. While his career is taking off, his love life descends into an ever-deepening mess. First he proposes marriage to his beautiful Slovak girlfriend, Jelena, with whom he fights constantly. But they split up almost as soon as they’re engaged. He then meets Harriet, Jelena's opposite, and marries her instead. But that’s not the end of it. Both women become pregnant at different stages, he leaves each of them at least once, and deserts both when they most need him. This wryly comic novel reveals the dangers of celebrity, and some complicated problems you'll enjoy seeing Nathaniel Water try to work out.

"I was telling a friend about this book, that the theme was that even though you love someone you can still mess it all up. And she started crying. So I think it must be a good story, or maybe she was just thinking about something else." WATER by Jasper Joffe

“A brilliant book! I thoroughly enjoyed the 12 stories, each different, and each varying in their crime levels. I heartily recommend this book to you!” The Big Book Review

“What you get when you read these stories in the order they were published is how fresh and exciting the Holmes story and character was. There had never been anything quite like it and it’s clear in this collection that Doyle was still enjoying the character. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes represents Holmes and Doyle at their prime.” Greatdetectives.net

“These stories are such fun! My favorite was "Scandal in Bohemia" (this one features Irene Adler, kick ass female smarty) but I also really enjoyed "The Five Orange Pips" (it was the creepiest!) and "The Man with the Twisted Lip." Highly recommend. If you want to get started on classics, these stories are a great way to do so, they're very easy and humorous!” Elly

NEWSDAY NY REVIEW OF THE BILGE BY LEE OLDS

NEWSDAY NY REVIEW OF THE BILGE BY LEE OLDS

THE BILGE (A dark comic suspenseful thriller)

“The Bilge” is a short, gloomy, seductive allegory that expresses the despair that men and women of good will sometimes feel when pondering the world of greed, exploitation, oppression and hopelessness that confronts them. Archetypal characters – Richter, the narrator, a reactionary lawyer, rigid, bitter, anti-Semitic; Peters, the Bohemian writer whose lifestyle eats at the foundations of Richter’s beliefs; the Professor, the iconoclastic Jewish intellectual Richter envies and abominates; the Goddess, the Professor’s beautiful, dependent, destructive, drunk wife – argue incessantly in an unearthly Sausalito, as graphically corporeal as the character’s habitation but strangely undescribe. Through murder and mayhem, we never escape the bitter confines of Richter’s mind. “The Bilge,” philosophical fiction of a sort rarely attempted by Americans, though depressing in its conclusions, is exhilarating in its execution.

“One of the 1000 novels everyone must read” The Guardian

“The characters are amazing. The setting is perfect. The plot manages to throw out hundreds of threads and ties them all together at the end, while never losing or boring the reader.” Darwin8u

“Oliver Twist has taken its place near the very top of my all time favorite books. It is a relatively fast-paced adventure story containing all the elements of great fiction.” Jim Kinkade

“Oliver Twist- one of Charles Dickens’s most famous novels tells the tale of a young orphaned boy named Oliver. Born in a workhouse, Oliver Twist follows Oliver as he endures turbulent times in nineteenth century London- a city plagued by poverty, crime and malice. As the road goes on for Oliver he meets the wonderfully created characters such as the miserly Fagin, the troubled Nancy, the ever so sweet Rose Maylie and the charismatic Artful Dodger.” The Streetlight Reader

OLIVER TWIST is one of the most profound and exciting novels of all time. It has been made into films, musicals, and stage productions and Oliver’s famous lines "Please, sir, I want some more" have entered into the language. This is Dickens’ masterpiece presented as it was meant to be read, with all the original illustrations.
