Sometimes, there is nothing better than a good book. Well, unless you're talking about a free book.
There's a place that has as many as 33,000 different books just waiting for you or your kids to read, and we don't mean the library. In fact, you don't even have to leave your house to go there, but you do need Internet access to find the Gutenberg Project. It's a website that has tens of thousands of books you can download on your computer, Kindle, or even your phone. It's easy. The site supports pretty much any technology you have that allows you to download ebooks.
So, how is this legal? These books are considered in the public domain, meaning their copyright has expired. That's why you can get it for nothing.
If you are a bookworm, you know the cost of books could really add up, so this could save you a small fortune. It could also be good for students to save money on required class reading.
Remember, you could always go to that other place with tens of thousands of free books too. Your local library can be an excellent resource.
