Come one, come all! Our eBook service offers some great big top reads that will transport you into the whimsical world that is the circus. Here are some titles that might be of interest:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern-The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night. 

The Circus in Winter by Cathy Day-From 1884 to 1939, the Great Porter Circus made the unlikely choice to winter in an Indiana town called Lima, a place that feels as classic as Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, and as wondrous as a first trip to the Big Top.

The Ordinary Acrobat by Duncan Wall-The extraordinary story of a young man's plunge into the unique and wonderful world of the circus–taking readers deep into circus history and its renaissance as a contemporary art form, and behind the (tented) walls of France's most prestigious circus school.
