The Folger Shakespeare paperbacks you read in high school are now available as ebooks

William Shakespeare

If you read Shakespeare in high school or college, it was likely one of those Folger Shakespeare paperbacks with explanatory notes and definitions on the facing pages. Now Simon & Schuster is releasing those editions as ebooks for the first time.

The ebooks, which are $5.99 each, “preserve the look and feel of the editions that have delighted readers for decades,” Simon & Schuster says. Each ebook “will have the same pagination as the physical book, with hyperlinks allowing readers to move easily between text, commentary, and a host of illustrations from the Folger’s collections that bring Shakespeare’s plays and world to life.”
