I downloaded 20 free e-books to my iPad, including 'A General History of the Pirates' by Daniel Defoe, 'Ulysses' by James Joyce, complete writings of Charles Darwin, novels by Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, Lawrence Sterne, and Sonnets of Shakespeare.

The collection now contains 53,000 classics, and it's growing.

There is so much wealth of information on the internet. Instead of learning and enriching ones mind most people just tweet and Facebook and instagram in a narcissist nonsense zoo.

Thanks for the link, I was aware but others may not be. Also look up it is great for related topics, I've been reading between the equations at some quantum physics related material. I can't do the equation parts but there is always a following paragraph or pages after explaining what the mad scientist are thinking about.

the offerings are books that are out of copyright and have come into the public domain legal-wise.

I've downloaded and read from there:
Edgar Rice Burroughs
H.G. Wells
Ayn Rand
H.P. Lovecraft
Robert Sheckley
Poul william Anderson
Robert Howard (creator of the Conan novels)
Kurt Vonnegut
Phillip K. Dick
E.E. Doc Smith
Joseph Conrad (Heart of Darkness)

and many others. All for the cost of an internet connection.

I'm glad they're there.
