NEW! Quick Reads Collection

The Quick Reads collection is made up of a variety of short books and stories written in an accessible style for adults. The books are intended to be a good introduction to new authors, genres, and reading in general, and are designed to encourage adults who don't read often to enjoy books. They can also be really helpful to people who are learning English.
