Tom Swift and The Visitor from Planet X

by Victor Appleton

I read the Tom Swift Jr. books including this one when I discovered them one day in my grandparent's basement. I loved them. They really started me off as a reader. Young readers and nostalgic old men like me will enjoy this.

Postmark Ganymede

by Robert Silverberg

This is a fun short read for 50s sci-fi lovers. About half the file is story, the other half Project Gutenberg blurb. I love "the future that was"-- science fiction stories from the 40s-60s. You get the future and the past at the same time. I love how the character in the story gets his landing coordinates and then jots them down in a note pad, then has to calculate his trajectory, presumably with long devision.

If you are not sure if you like this type of story, give it a try. It's short enough that you can get a taste of it without investing too much time or effort.

Letters to His Children

by Theodore Roosevelt

This is a wonderful book containing letters from Teddy Roosevelt to his children, and in a few cases to others about his children. The portrait that it paints of a loving father adds a new dimension to one of the greatest men of the last millennium.

Tarzan of the Apes

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

One of the greatest characters of all time, this is the original tale of Tarzan. You will note many differences from the many movie adaptations, though a few come close. The boy raised by apes is one of the great brainstorms of Burroughs, who was definitely one of the great American story-tellers.
