Classic books in a minute

This is a delightful site that I learned about from B.C. Catholic columnist Peter Vogel. The clever 60 Second Recap offers engaging 60-second summaries of classic works of literature. The idea is to interest teens in taking a look at these books, most of which are high school reading material. So don't be surprised if your high schooler checks out the site and ends up reading Huckleberry Finn, Frankenstein, Crime and Punishment, Fahrenheit 451, Romeo and Juliet, Catcher in the Rye, Animal Farm, Pride and Prejudice or other classics from the growing list this summer. If the site doesn't have your favourite yet, you can request an addition to their library.
