Twenty short nonfiction works chosen by the readers. President Theodore Roosevelt, in a 1903 speech, declared that "The future welfare of our nation depends upon the way in which we can combine...decency and strength," and opined that being "loose and foul of tongue" was incompatible with good citizenship.

Finally, for pure pleasure, indulge in The Candy Box! (Summary by Sue Anderson)
