Can someone please recommend a good classic book that you've read? I want it to be a classic so that I can get it for free. Thank you.  ;D

I love Pride and Prejudice, but a character list may be in order while reading!!

Oh how about Dracula, Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Little Women, Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, and Anne of GReen Gables.

All of these are found on www.Feedbooks.com

Have fun reading!

Note that you are not limited to classics if you are looking for free books--you can also search Amazon for newer free books by using this search, found under the sticky topic "Book Lovers' Links" at the top of the Book Corner.

http://www.jungle-search.com/US/kindle.php#free

Some are Harlequin romances, there's at least one best seller on there, Persuader by Lee Child (good book, part of a series).

Also, check out our Free Books Thread sticky, also at the top of the Book Corner for other recommendations of free books.

The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas.  I'm very big on classics and read many while in jr high and high school, along with honors english in college and for the life of me, I cannot figure out how/why I never got to this one.  I'm reading it currently.

I'm currently reading Emma by Jane Austen. 
I also got some very good free books at manybooks.net.  I like the search feature on manybooks also. 
Good luck.  Let us know what you chose.

I would also recommend Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, King Solomon's Mines or She by H. Rider Haggard and The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen of course....and after you read it.  If you have a hankering for the movie.  The one to watch would be the BBC movie with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle...acting as Darcy and Elizabeth.

Happy Reading,

Tami

Also check out http://www.jakonrath.com/freebies.htm#story for 4 (I believe it's still 4) free books that he wrote before he was published.
As far as classics go, I'd second the recommendation for Jane Eyre and all the Jane Austens - and the one at the top of my to-be-read list is The Count of Monte Cristo because I've seen so many people recommend it. Feedbooks.com and mobileread.com are my favorite sources for free classics.

You can get a classic version free with the Sherlock Holmes content but this includes everything he ever wrote:

Another that includes everything the author wrote:

Between the two of them there would be literally days of reading.

Thank you LDB! I've been wanting to read Sherlock Holmes and I love Mark Twain.

And then there are American classics:  James Fenimore Cooper -- Last of the Mohicans, Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables, Poe's short stories (also novels and poems).  Go to www.feedbooks.com and just start browsing. . . . :)
