Free book downloads: Don't you just love a bargain?

"a man, tall and thin, and ghastly pale... I crept behind It, and gave It my knife; but the knife went through It, empty as the air."
- Bram Stoker, Chapter 7, Dracula

I love a good bargain, and when it’s totally free, I love it even more!

I’m not sure how long this will be available, but here goes…

Amazon Digital Services is providing totally free downloads of some of the finest spook-filled literature classics, guaranteed to get you in the mood to celebrate Halloween: Bram Stoker’s Dracula; Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow; Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s Frankenstein and Grimm’s Fairy Stories by Jacob Grimm.

These are complete book downloads of the original editions, presented in the English language, and carry a digital list price of $0.00. Plus, they are also delivered free by wireless delivery via Amazon Whispernet.

The free downloads are compatible with the following: KindleKindle; DXKindle (2nd Generation); Kindle (1st Generation); Kindle for PCKindle; for MacKindle’; for iPadKindle; for iPhoneKindle; for AndroidKindle and for BlackBerry.

Don’t you just love that kind of bargain?

What a deal! Thanks for letting us know.

Barry - You are welcome! :)

That's awfully nice of them I guess and besides, I suppose they can afford it. The books are probably all public domain anyway. Doesn't Google and some other sites also offer free downloads of books in the public domain?

Arlee Bird - Yes, they are all in public domain Lee, but I agree with you that it is a very nice gesture.

There are similar sites that offer downloads or direct viewing such as the Gutenberg Project.

Oh, gosh, if I only had a Kindle. Maybe I should put it on my Christmas list. ;-)

Jo - That's a great idea. The newest version of Kindle has gotten rave reviews. :)
