Virgil's "Aeneid": A Retelling in Prose
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 85,550. Language: English. Published: January 22, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Classics, Fiction » Literature » Literary
This book is a retelling of Virgil's "Aeneid" in novel form. The "Aeneid" is well worth reading. In addition to being the epic of ancient Rome, the "Aeneid" contains the fullest surviving ancient account of the fall of Troy. It also contains the story of the tragic love affair between Aeneas and Dido, the queen of Carthage—a story that Virgil apparently invented.
The Unusual Adventures of Sissy Hissyfit - The King Who Was Set In His Ways
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 7,290. Language: English. Published: January 13, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Children’s books » Fiction, Fiction » Children’s books » Entertainment
This book is the first in a series of rather unusual adventures of a young girl called Sissy Hissyfit. It is a good old classic tale of weird and wonderful lands, with a dollop of humour thrown in to boot. The story ends with a not-so-serious moral so that all of our little darlings are left with a little something to think about.

Price: $3.49 USD. Words: 190. Language: English. Published: September 6, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Music » Sheet music and song books
Mississippi Rag. Composed in 1897 by William H. Krell this ragtime is considered to be the first ragtime ever published.
