Harvard Classics

“Classics are books which, the more we think we know them through hearsay, the more original, unexpected, and innovative we find them when we actually read them.” - Italo Calvino

Charles William Elliot claimed that you could get all the elements of a liberal education by spending only 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that all fit within the confines of a five-foot shelf. To prove this, he also selected the appropriate books and so the Harvard Classics were born. Now, thanks to ebooks, you don’t even need the five-foot shelf to enjoy them.

Becki Willis - Christmas Crimes in a Small Community
FEATURED AUTHOR - As an avid reader herself, Becki Willis likes to write about believable characters in believable situations. Many of her books stem from personal experiences. (No worries; she's never actually murdered anyone.) She's won several awards, but the real compliments come from her readers. Becki loves spending time with her family, unraveling a good mystery, traveling, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.  As our Author of the Day, Willis tells us all about her book, Christmas in The Sisters.
