The Fall River Tragedy by Edwin H. Porter

The Fall River Tragedy | Edwin H. Porter

This is a True Story!!

The story of how Lizzie Borden supposedly murdered her parents has passed into American folklore, partly thanks to the albeit inaccurate playground rhyme, “Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41.”

Here we have the ‘true’ story, as reported by the local police reporter who attended the trial and lived only streets away from the Borden home with his young wife. After the trial, Porter ‘disappeared’ and it was widely speculated he had either been murdered or bribed to disappear in order to suppress the book.

His reappearance some time later put paid to the first theory. After his death at age 39 from tuberculosis, a new theory emerged, that he had been away for treatment while keeping his illness secret.

Meanwhile, the trial itself was noteworthy for several reasons: it was one of the first to be followed by the nationwide press, providing a template for today’s tabloid and cable coverage of major trials; it also had some distinguished personnel: one of the prosecutors, Frank Moody, later became the attorney general of the United States and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Theodore Roosevelt; and Borden’s defense attorney, George Robinson, was the former governor of Massachusetts. The appearance of Professor Wood of Harvard University was an early use of an expert witness at trial.

The Clue by Carolyn Wells

The Clue | Carolyn Wells

On the eve of her wedding day, Madeleine Van Norman, a beautiful young lady who is soon to come into her family fortune is found dead, apparently stabbed with an ominous blood-stained letter opener found nearby. There is nobody within the household who is not considered a suspect by the police, but how could a killer have slipped through the doors of Madeleine’s locked bedroom? It must have been suicide, as a note was found lying on a table near her body. Or was it? An intriguing mystery ensues which hinges on the discovery of a single, all-important clue.

Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas | Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

Uncle Silas is a Victorian Gothic mystery/thriller novel by the Anglo-Irish writer J. Sheridan Le Fanu. It is notable as one of the earliest examples of the locked room mystery subgenre. It is not a novel of the supernatural (despite a few creepily ambiguous touches), but does show a strong interest in the occult and in the ideas of Swedenborg. (Summary by Wikipedia)

The Story of a New Zealand River

The Story of a New Zealand River by Jane Mander

The Story of a New Zealand River by Jane Mander

“This is the land of the lost, one of those happy spots where no questions are asked. Of course, the fact of a person’s being here is usually all the explanation necessary.” The Story of a New Zealand River is a romance set in the Northland region of New Zealand, in the time when the forests of New Zealand’s grandest tree, the kauri, were being logged for their exquisite timber. The novel begins as Alice Roland and her free-spirited daughter Asia are being rowed in a black punt by handsome and cultured David Bruce up the Kaipara harbour to their new home at a raw kauri logging settlement in a bend of the Kaiwaka river. Tom Roland, a rough colonial and the boss of the settlement, is Alice’s husband of a few years. Alice is a beautiful but tight-laced, proud, puritanical Englishwoman whose mismatch with Tom Roland is not a happy one. They arrive with Alice’s piano among their belongings to find a half-built cottage, a strange collection of inhabitants, from gentry to scoundrels, and a place that is beautiful and challenging. Jane Mander was a New Zealand novelist and journalist. As well as New Zealand, she also lived in Sydney, New York and London. There is a superficial resemblance between The Story of a New Zealand River and the Jane Campion film The Piano, which is principally the setting and the piano.

Reasons why you should Read more!

All You Can Books: Read More

More than a quarter 26% of American adults admit to not having read even part of a book within the past year. That’s according to statistics coming out of the Pew Research Center. If you’re part of this group, know that science supports the idea that reading is good for you on several levels.

To Read or Not to Read is never the question. The Question is what to read? The answer… Anything and Everything.

  •  To Develop Your Verbal Abilities

Although it doesn’t always make you a better communicator, those who read tend to have a more varied range of words to express how they feel and to get their point across. This increases exponentially with the more volumes you consume, giving you a higher level of vocabulary to use in everyday life.

All You Can Books offers various language courses, in audiobooks for a better understanding.

  • Reading introduces you to new ideas and invites you to solve problems

Have you ever solved a case in a mystery book before you read the conclusion or predicted a turn of events in a novel? Your analytical thinking was stimulated merely from reading. Reading helps you detect patterns, solve problems, and assimilate new information as if you were living in the characters’ shoes.

  • Readers Enjoy The Arts And Improve The World

A study done by the NEA explains that people who read for pleasure are more times more likely (than those that don’t) to visit museums and attend concerts. And almost three times as likely to perform volunteer and charity work.

Readers are active participants in the world around them and that engagement is critical to individual and social well-being.

  • A book is a unique experience

Nobody is going to read a book and imagine the characters and story in their head in the same way you are, it’s a completely personal thing. Go watch a movie or a TV show and you will be entertained but in the same way that everyone else is because you are seeing the story how the Director and Producer translated the words onto the screen.

  • Improves Your Focus And Concentration

Unlike blog posts and news articles, sitting down with a book takes long periods of focus and concentration, which at first is hard to do. Being fully engaged in a book involves closing off the outside world and immersing yourself in the text. Which over time will strengthen your attention span.

Reading is not only fun, but it has all the added benefits that we have discussed so far. Much more enthralling than watching a movie or a TV show (although they have their many benefits as well). A good book can keep us amused while developing our life skills.
