A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

In October 1843, Charles Dickens ― heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher ― began work on a book to help supplement his family's meager income. That volume, A Christmas Carol, has long since become one of the most beloved stories in the English language. As much a part of the holiday season as holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths, this perennial favorite continues to delight new readers and rekindle thoughts of charity and goodwill. <P> <P> With its characters exhibiting many qualities ― as well as failures ― often ascribed to Dickens himself, the imaginative and entertaining tale relates Ebenezer Scrooge's eerie encounters with a series of spectral visitors. Journeying with them through Christmases past, present, and future, he is ultimately transformed from an arrogant, obstinate, and insensitive miser to a generous, warmhearted, and caring human being. Written by one of England's greatest and most popular novelists, A Christmas Carol has come to epitomize the true meaning of Christmas.

But his whole world changes when, having skipped school, he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison, where they're mercilessly interrogated for days. When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state, where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself. Can one teenage hacker fight back against a government out of control? Maybe, but only if he's really careful . . . and very, very smart.

Periodic table (Large Print - colour)

by Rnib

This is a multi-page document showing the periodic table of chemical elements, and on the Large Print version, a key to the table. The LP key is on the first page. The table is in five parts, which can be joined together. There is a locator dot and title shown on each page. These will be at the top left of the page when it is the correct way up. This is a complex diagram and blind and partially sighted people may find it helpful to have some sighted assistance at first viewing. The table shows element categories (in large print only), groups (families) and periods, plus the atomic number, the chemical symbol and atomic weight for each element. Key to Large Print periodic table - The key to the table shows the colours used to represent the element categories, and is arranged in two columns. In each column, the colour samples are to the left with their names to the right. The categories are not shown on the tactile version of the table, as there is insufficient space in the cells for textures. It is recommended that you download the Periodic table overview from the ImageShare site, as this shows the element categories in tactile format. Periodic tabl The table comprises cells arranged in columns and rows. A cell shows the atomic number, chemical symbol and atomic weight for an element. In the Large Print version of the table, the cell colour relates to the element category as shown on the key. The vertical columns show the groups (or families) of elements. The groups are numbered across the top of the page. A horizontal row in the table is a period. The periods are numbered on the left side of the first page of the table. In this arrangement of the periodic table, the lanthanoids and actinoids (periods 6 to 7, known as the f-block) are separated from the other elements and are shown stretching across the bottom of the page. The f-block on pages 3, 4 and 5 has no periodic numbers marked on the page. Joining the page - To allow space for braille labelling, this table has been split into five sections on separate pages. Join them to each other in number order, from left to right, trimming the periodic numbers as required. Pages 1 and 5 are A4 size and in portrait orientation. Pages 2 to 4 are A3 size and in landscape orientation. Trim the pages to allow joining, using the light, vertical dashed grid lines as guides. When joining the tactile pages, care should be taken to avoid covering any part of the table.

Wonder

by R. J. Palacio

'My name is August. I won't describe what I look like. Whatever you're thinking, it's probably worse. ' Auggie wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old.

Ordinary kids aren't stared at wherever they go. Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all? WONDER is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.
