- Graphic novels: If you like comics then witness the exploits of Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur in all its glory;
- Audiobooks: Hear George Orwell’s 1984 or the award-winning Born Confused ;
- Videos: see a Muhammad Ali biography, explore the Mystery Of The Crop Circles or find out what Snail Zombies are!
If you seek the same sort of resource but for a younger audience try TumbleBooks.
