You know your classic literature, and you've seen how many editions are available. So what makes Literary Touchstone Classics the number-one choice of English teachers across the country?

Literary Touchstone Classics are designed by former teachers with the needs of the secondary English Language Arts classroom in mind, so they're more than just beautiful editions of canonical texts.

To help prepare students for a close reading, every Literary Touchstone Classic includes pre-reading notes that cite important aspects of the text that high school and middle school students should examine and question while reading.

And to make sure students understand the text to the fullest, each book has an extensive vocabulary list, as well as a glossary that explains obscure allusions and interprets particularly challenging passages.

Whether you need editions that last for years or copies that students can take notes in and make their own, Literary Touchstone Classics fit the bill. Sturdy bindings and high-quality paper ensure they'll hold up to repeated use, and they're always available for at least 50% off retail — prices as low as .99 cents.
