My birthday Kindle is here! I knew I would enjoy/use it well, but I had never read the entire Amazon description before now. I had no idea that I could fill the Kindle with classic literature for free.

I can find the great works at the Amazon site or at other sites the store suggests, such as Project Gutenberg:

prgutProject Gutenberg is the place where you can download over 33,000 free ebooks to read on your PC, iPad, Kindle, Sony Reader, iPhone, Android or other portable device.

I’m certainly going to enjoy burrowing in this winter with hundreds of classics at hand.

I know, I know, I already have hundreds of favorites in my bookcase, but the ability to hop between classics whenever I want, wherever I am is extraordinary.

I have the complete works of Shakespeare in my purse. All of Austin’s novels are available while I’m waiting in line at the Secretary of State. I can delve into literature I’ve always planned to read, but never found time for while waiting in the car for Rick to grab some groceries. I just finished Stephen King’s latest novel, and switched over to read a quick biography of Ralph Waldo Emerson. The Kindle is a bibliophile’s dream.
