This week's collection of new books available in Serial Reader include two favorites: "The Adventures of Pinocchio" and "Aladdin and the Magic Lamp."

Also new this week is a fascinating book called "The Book of the Damned" by Charles Fort. It's an investigation of various scientific anomalies: strange things falling from the sky, strange disappearances, sightings of supposedly mythological animals, and yes - UFOs. (It's worth noting some claim Fort viewed the whole endeavor as a bit of a joke.)
