Free eBooks for the Holidays

Fancy curling up with an old classic on your lap top, PDA or mobile?

I know, they'll never replace proper books, but, all said, ebooks do have their charms. Especially when they're free - in the sense of requiring no payment and having absolutely no strings attached whatsoever.

Open Access is a corner of the Internet which is doing very nicely, thank you, and which allows ordinary web surfers in Westbury on Trym, Baghdad or Buenos Aires to access masses of free software and - the point of this post - works of literature.

All of the following titles are free and legal - you are not robbing the (long-dead) author nor will your computer be taken over by nasty software from the Ukraine. Honest.

So, for the holidays, please allow Trym Tales the pleasure of recommending:

In case none of the above titles appeal, why not visit Project Gutenberg and search their listings of over 20,000 free ebooks ready to download today.

Go on, try it. You know you want to.
