Yesterday, I quoted a passage from Heart of Darkness about the Roman legions and officials in Britannia. I thought it was interesting, and mentioned at the end that it's free on the Kindle.
Today I wanted to point out the Kindle for PC (or Mac) readers. It's very nicely designed and pretty to read on - it stacks up favorably with a PDF.
Most importantly, it's easy to get a lot of out of print books for free. Here's how:
1. Go get the relevant program:
2. Install it (simple and straightforward).
3. Go do this search: Search (Kindle Store) for (author or book title). Then Sort by - Price: Low to High.
Almost all of the classics that are out of copyright will have a $0.00 version - which means it's free.
Here's a few that might probably appeal to people who like the general themes of this site to get you started:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes"
Marcus Aurelius, "Meditations"
Carl von Clauswitz, "On War"
Niccolo Machiavelli, "The Prince"
Sun-Tzu, "The Art of War"
Very easy to get free books. Do make sure you double-check the price is $0.00 if you wanted to only pick up a lot of titles for free, but all the linked ones are as of today. Also, your book recommendations are welcome in the comments.
