If you've lamented the shocking fall-off in the quality of books written today, where foul language, political correctness and rampant stupidity seem to characterize much of the modern market, then you're in for a treat. The entire (yes, I said ENTIRE) contents of the Harvard Classics are now available in e-book format for just $1.99. Click the original advertisement below for a larger view.
I hate to think what paper editions of those books would cost. To get them all for $1.99 means that you're paying about 4c per book.
Oh - and as the TV infomercials are so fond of saying: "But wait - there's more!" In the same bundle, you'll get the 20 volumes of the "Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction", making the collection even more of a steal and even more unique. If you look through the latter link, you'll find some real American classics (by writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, Bret Harte, etc.), as well as much from historic European authors.
Recommending this, at such a ridiculously low price, is simply a no-brainer. Even if you don't like reading, even if you already have an extensive library, this collection belongs on your computer or e-reader or tablet. It's simply indispensable.
