Bedford Select makes it easy to customize your composition reader or literature anthology. Choose from more than 800 essays, stories, poems, plays, images, and instructional materials in the Bedford Select database-and build an affordable course text for your students.

  • With Bedford Select, students pay only for material that will be assigned in the course—nothing more.
  • It is easy for instructors to create their ideal text for a composition or literature course-one that can be ordered again (or readily modified from term to term).
  • Because quality matters, Bedford Select books are built to the same standards as the highly praised and widely used composition readers and literature anthologies published by Bedford/St. Martin's, an imprint of Macmillan Learning.
