Eliot, Charles W. (editor): Harvard Classics 52: 15 Minutes A Day - The Reading Guide
"President Eliot wrote in his introduction to the Harvard Classics, “In my opinion, a five-foot shelf would hold books enough to give a liberal education to any one who would read them with devotion, even if he could spare but fifteen minutes a day for reading.” With this very definitely in mind, we have prepared a daily reading guide in which the assignments chosen appropriately enough, will take the usual person about fifteen minutes to read with leisurely enjoyment. These selections assigned for each day in the year as you will see, are introduced by comments on the author, the subjects or the chief characters. They will serve to introduce you in the most pleasant manner possible to the Harvard Classics. They will enable you to browse enjoyably among the world’s immortal writings with entertainment and stimulation in endless variety."
The page numbers referred to herein are for the original hardcopy edition of the Harvard Classics and will not, in general, be correct for ebook editions.
I repaired the broken links in the Table of Contents of this LRF file.

This is really great. I downloaded all of the LRF files for the HC series, but I have some questions. This book speaks of a couple things I can't find such as the master index of phrases and first words, the children's reading guide, etc. Where are all of these? Are they available online somewhere else?
Splendid work, thank you for the effort.
