Looking for the prefect gift for that hard to please history lover? 

Might we suggest giving them a copy of the Searchable Chambers' Book of Days on a CD? Just $25

As noted on the opening page, Chambers' 1869 The Book of Days is one of my most prized possession. It's detailed descriptions of key historical events, the life and times of people, both great and infamous, and long forgotten customs of cultures from every corner of the world, is a must-read for anyone aspiring to understand history as our forefathers saw it.

As I read the book for my third time, I found myself always yearning to flip back to a prior article on a person or event mentioned in the current article I was reading, unfortunately, that often proved harder then expected.  Not anymore.

Throughout the year long effort of putting the book on-line, I've come to appreciate having the Book of Days stored right on my own computer, where pages appear in a flash, and searches take a fraction of the time they do on the web. The extensive hyperlink of the electronic version of the book allows me to jump back and forth, as Chambers might have done had he been reading the stores to me himself, making every article in the book that much more worthwhile.

Now you can experience that same feeling with the CD version of the Searchable Chambers' Book Of Days for just $25.  

For an additional fee, we can also personalize a copy of the CD for you by adding in the birth and death dates of loved ones and friends, for more information e-mail us at
