Price: Free! Words: 21,990. Language: English. Published: January 2, 2011. Categories: Nonfiction » Entertainment » Humor and satire(4.95 from 22 reviews)
The "fool" of the title is the inept narrator, who takes us on a warm but clueless tour of US history.

Yet the view is ever rosy, including a glimpse of endless prosperity that "only Yankee Doodle dares dream of."

Price: Free! Words: 47,250. Language: English. Published: October 7, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » History » World, Nonfiction » Entertainment » History & Criticism(5.00 from 1 review)

Challenger: Roleplaying Game Core Rules by David Dostaler
Price: Free! Words: 124,120. Language: English. Published: September 14, 2011. Categories: Nonfiction » Entertainment » Games, puzzles and brain twisters, Fiction » Young adult or teen » Fantasy
A new Challenger is here... This is a pen and paper tabletop roleplaying game, not a computer game. If you're looking for one of those, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere. I highly recommend the dungeon-crawling German rogue-like "Lost Labyrinth" which is free to download and a purely awesome game. If you're interested in the RPG, you've come to the right place.
