One of the best things about the lazy days of summer is having more time to read. It is wonderful to sit outside on a beautiful day, smelling the grass and feeling the breeze, lost in a good book.  I think summer holidays and books should be  inseparable!
Here are some reading tips for your carefree summer days!

What about downloading  The Canterville Ghost? It is one of the most popular short stories by Oscar Wilde, widely adapted for the screen and the stage. 
Then you could download Kate Chopin's short story Désirée’s Baby as well as William Wilson, which is Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous character study of the doppelganger, or double, a theme explored in a similar way by the film Fight Club. 
I could also suggest reading  Henry James's ghost story The Turn of the Screw  -  this is a novella, which means that it is shorter than a traditional novel but focusing on actions of greater scope than the short story.
