Before blogging, Twitter, and all other social media activities I used to be an avid reader. I love to read… so much so that it wasn’t unheard of for me to finish a book in a single day or stay up half the night with my book glued in front of my face. Seriously, I had an odd addiction to books.
I’m not one of those people who will read anything that they can get their hands on though. I’m a fiction girl. Chick Lit, mystery, drama, historical fiction, poetry, and books along those lines. I’m also one of those people who wander the bookstore aimlessly for hours picking up books around the store and often judging them by their cover. I know…. I know… you should never judge a book by it’s cover.
I’ve always been a fan of Shakespeare but have had trouble reading the full texts because of the way it was written. But I still tried to get through them till I found the movies and easily set the books aside. By far my favorite has been A Midsummer Night’s Dream…. I love the faeries & mischievous Puck.
The Sixty Minute Shakespeare books are great! They’re short, simple to read, and still deliver the message that was intended with the full play. I read a act or two a day and was able to get through it pretty quickly. No, I didn’t try to read it in an hour although I don’t see why someone couldn’t.
The books are great for students or anyone just wanting to become acquainted with some of Shakespeare’s greatest works! I would recommend them to friends, family, and some of my teacher friends for their classrooms.
Five Star Publications publishes these books and you can purchase the entire series for $45.89 or individually for $8.99. From my perspective the series includes some of the best of Shakespeare’s works; Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing.
Do you want to read Shakespeare but couldn’t get through it? Interested in trying the Sixty-Minute Series?
