Black Beauty

By: Anna Sewell

The first place that I can well remember was a large pleasant meadow with a pond of clear water in it. Some shady trees leaned over it, and rushes and water-lilies grew at the deep end.

The Fifteenth Man

By: P.G. Wodehouse

Excerpt: Neville?Smith?s theory, arrived at after careful thought, was that the supreme governing powers of the universe had taken a sudden dislike to Bray Lench. He refused to listen to any other. ?Look at the evidence,? he said, as we sat over our coffee. ?Jimmy couldn't come. Got the flu. So far, nothing to grumble about.
