If you are looking for information about Will Durant's list of "100 Best Books for an Education" you have come to the right place. If you already know about this list of books and are trying to find the books on the list, then you have again come to the right place! Welcome! I hope you find everything that you are looking for on this site. If you don't, leave a message in the Guestbook and let me know, and I will see if I can help you find what you are looking for.
I want to make this wealth of information available to as many people as possible, so I've gathered links to eBooks for most of the books on the list. I've found all the selections on the list except four, which can still be found in your local libraries or in bookstores. And I am constantly checking to see if these books have become available as free eBooks.
I've listed the books in two ways and have links available to them all in my Navigation Bar which you can see on the left side of this page. I have listed the books in the groups that Mr. Durant used in his essay, and you can find those pages when you click the links labeled "The List". I have also listed the books in numerical order on the pages labeled "Books." And if you are just looking for a specific book or books you can use the Search Engine at the bottom of the Navigation bar to take you to the specific selection you are interested in.
If you want to go through the list of books the way Mr. Durant recommended, use the links labeled "The List." Here I have links to the books, and the sections of the book to be read in that group (if the whole book is not recommended by Mr. Durant). Some of the books have sections to be read in more than one group, so I list the book in each group that it is included in along with the sections of the book to be read with that particular group.
I've listed specific information about each book in the section that will be accessed when you use the links labeled "Books." This includes the date the selection was published, the number of pages in the book and how large the file is, for those who want to download the eBooks.
I've added a section that you can access by using the links labeled "More Books" that gives links which have more information about each of the authors. I will also add more books that are written by the authors to make it easier for people to read more books by the authors that wrote the "100 Best Books."
I have added pages that showcase quotations from the 100 "Best" authors, a page of links to other sites on the Internet that I feel will be helpful and an "Updates" page that I will use to announce any changes that have been made on the website.
If you need to contact me for any reason, you can leave a message on my Guestbook, the link is near the bottom of the navigation bar on the left. I've included links at the bottom of the pages to places you can download free pdf readers. And I have added links on the right side of the pages to reference materials that you can use to get more information about a word or subject you are interested in.
I want to thank you for visiting my page, I hope that you find it worthy of many more visits to get all the books you want to read from this great list of books.
