Update (04/17/22): A new item is available: The Classical Bookcase! This handsome barrister-style bookcase comes pre-loaded with a basic set of eleven of the Classical books to get your Sims started. It's beautiful and a bargain.

Tired of reading "The Glutton Spiel" and "Crisis Barn"? So are your Sims! Give them the gift of Classical literature with this download of Greek and Roman books. Classics constitutes some of the most valuable intellectual inheritance of Western Similization, and now your beloved Sims can have it (almost) all, from Aesop to Zeno, in this 46 volume set of custom books (purchasable, after download and installation, from your bookcases).

All Classics books provide fun (of course!), some instill the soul with Emotions, and some will teach your Sims skills. Learn Debate from Cicero or Logic from Aristotle; Comedy from Plautus or Acting from Aeschylus; be inspired by the tales of Ovid, emboldened by the deeds of Caesar, titillated by Sappho, amused by Juvenal, roused by Pindar.

The volumes have a handsome design, bold yet dignified, individualized yet consistent. And, being in the public domain, all Classics are very reasonably priced. Give your Sims the advantage they deserve: a Classical education.
