Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays

“A massive overview of every myth under the sun. Davis shatters commonly held myths about myths.”

- New York Daily News


 

That’s why every serious reader will love today’s Free Fridays selection: Don't Know Much About Mythology by Kenneth C. Davis. This bestselling author has written seven books in his popular Don’t Know Much About…series, covering everything from the Bible to the American Civil War. In this edition, Davis offers an engaging, layman-friendly lesson on ancient mythology—exploring cultures from around the world. While you probably have a vague idea of where everyday terms and concepts like “Pandora’s Box,” “Achilles’ Heel,” and “Wheel of Fortune,” come from, after reading DKMAM you’ll feel quite confident going into your next game of Trivial Pursuit on family game night.

 

Once you’ve binged on your mythology lessons, you can move on to Davis’s other equally enlightening Don’t Know Much About…books available for NOOK.

Thanks for the freebies.  I always get something I wouldn't have had time to search for if it was not for you.  What a great service you provide. 

Love the free Friday book.  I used to teach mythology to 9th graders so I am looking forward to reviewing these myths.  One of the things I used to do with the students is to find modern day pictures, quotations, etc. using mythological references.  There are lots of them if you know what to look for.  For example, the FTD florist symbol.

I hope many Nook Readers decide to download a book like this.  :smileyhappy:
