This week's collection of new books available in Serial Reader include two favorites: "The Adventures of Pinocchio" and "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp." They join several others that have been transformed into treasured movies by Disney -- find them all in the new Disney Favorites collection of books!
Also new this week is a fascinating book called "The Book of the Damned" by Charles Fort. It's an investigation of various scientific anomalies: strange things falling from the sky, strange disappearances, sightings of supposedly mythological animals, and yes - UFOs. (It's worth noting some claim Fort viewed the whole endeavor as a bit of a joke.)
Rounding out the new selections are a collection of short stories by H.G. Wells, a romance from Victoria Cross, and a novel mixing Irish mythology and philosophy from James Stephens:
Until next week, happy reading!
