Digital Book Kits
We currently have 19 Digital Book Kits for classic novels. Each kit contains a number of files, including a copy of the full text in both an e-book and Kindle compatible format, and an mp3 Audiobook for most titles. Kits also include discussion questions and extra content such as videos, news clippings, photographs and other documents related to the book.
Due to copyright issues, all of our Digital Book Kits focus on classic works that are in the public domain. The kits include some very popular titles such as Dracula, The Hound of the Baskervilles, The War of the Worlds, Northanger Abbey, Pride and Prejudice, The Secret Garden, A Study in Scarlet and more.
Digital Book Kit Examples
The Digital Book Kit for The Loss of the S.S. Titanic includes the e-book, which is a first-person account of the sinking of the ship published only two months after the tragedy. The kit also includes the mp3 Audiobook version, the British Government report on the sinking, contemporary New York Times reports on the sinking and a newsreel video showing some of the only existing footage of the captain and interior of the ship.
The Digital Book Kit for Dracula includes the e-book and mp3 Audiobook, the film Nosferatu and an essay believed to have inspired the book called Transylvanian Superstitions. You also have access to a separate work by author Bram Stoker called Dracula’s Guest that is believed to have been the original first chapter of the novel and a radio drama version of Dracula performed by the Mercury Theater.
