Are you a lover of classic literature? If you are, you can read to your heart's content for FREE! No, you don't have to borrow from a library. You can own books by authors such as Charles Dickens, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Joseph Conrad, etc. totally for free.
You will need a wifi connection and the time to peruse Amazon's list of free classics. Of course, you'll also need a reading app for your phone or tablet, but those are also free and widely available. I use the Kindle app on my iPad and iPhone.
No, I am not talking about Amazon's Kindle Unlimited, for which you have to pay. I am referring to the immense list of totally free books available which are out of copyright protection and part of the public domain. Of course, you can traipse over to Project Gutenberg and spend hours sifting through their complex listings. You can also head over to Amazon and check out the Free Classics.
The Amazon listing is a lot easier to search and most importantly, to download. Plus, many of the books have nice covers. Of course, a few will have the generic Gutenberg cover.
There are also works which are not free, but which are sold for as little as $0.99 for an entire collection. I happen to be a lover of P.G. Wodehouse's work. I've collected most of his works at very little cost.
The same for John Carter! I love those books.
