Periodic Table of Literature

This is a list of writen things that you could read that have been placed together based on fact or fiction (like metals and non-metals) and grouped themes, like philosophy, history and autobiography into the same format as the periodic table of elements. Some of these things are really short, but still interesting, like the single word Wow! comment that some think is evidence of alien civilisation, or Hemingway's apocryphal shortest short story (6 words long). Others are a little more involved, like Heroditus' History, and might be better left to later in life, but you can still find out more about books like Plato's Republic reading instead the excellent series of books from "For Begginners", or reading the Wikipedia article about that work.
