Take a Break: Enjoy a Classic

Summer is rapidly winding down in Vermont. The morning fog, chirping crickets and the smell of the occasional wood stove reminds us that in just a few weeks school is back in session and summer will be a memory. So while the sun shines and the hammock still hangs between the trees, it’s perfect for an afternoon read of a classic book.

How long has it been since you read “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “Dracula,” anything by Jules Verne, or even one of Poe’s chilling stories? You can go to the library and get one of these or many other classics, or you can read an e-version for free on your tablet, laptop or computer. At the moment, I’m reading Jules Verne’s “The Time Machine” on my iPod while working out at the gym.  

Not a book person, what about a classic movie? Many are in the public domain.  I’m a sucker for
anything from the 1930s and early 40s. Check out the following sites:
