Every text is available to you, from a dictionary of Classical Mythology and an original draft of the Bible(still in Latin) to the Complete Dictionary of The BEATLES.
This only begins your journey into what's-what-according-to-who's-who.
Of course, you can read just for secular purposes, and one can find a kind version of Beowulf, Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales", Arthurian Tales, and many of Shakespeare's Sonnets in our British Literature Section...If Eastern Thought is more suiting to your tastes, you are welcome to browse through Herman Hesse's "Siddhartha", many books that explain Buddhism and Taoism, as well as "The Tao of Pooh"...
Quick PicksThis Section is meant to be based on Muse Suggestion of great literary sites to visit:

But what of Biographies!??But of course we have biographies!!! Don't be silly!!! And autobiographies!!! We even have a few collections of letters written by authors, particularly Emily Dickinson, Rilke, and Douglas Adams...
Music Books!???Well, many a novel and poem has used music in its many forms as an inspiration for its conception, or as a reference; allegorically or simply to relate better to readers. We do have a selection of music lesson books here, but these are of the frail kind, originals that members of The Musician's Guild will often be found mulling over and studying. These are not meant to be used for recreation. Sorry for the inconvienence.
Libral Arts SectionTrue to the Musehome, all libral arts are represented here. The Odessy, The Iliad, and works by Socrates, Eurypides, Sophocles, and others can be uncovered here.
Final NotePlease do not write in the books. Please do not write on the tables. Please do not write on each other(it's known to start a terrific fit of giggles). Please, however, read, and enjoy yourself...
BOOKS FOUND HERE WILL NEVER LEAVE THE BUILDING. PERIOD.This Library is used by students of Monster University.
