I Went a Little Crazy With Free eBooks… A List


My dear and unfortunate successor,

Thank the Gods I’ve read most of these books already but I was sort of ‘against’ the idea of electronic books due to weird lighting that just adds fire to the flame of my brain aka migraines. Over the past few days I’ve downloaded a bunch of free eBooks available for the Kindle, from the classics list. I’m a huge nerd! I only went to check out prices for the Edgar Allen Poe poems and found them to be free. You know how you see something and add it to your basket, or you click to check the product out, and at the bottom is a selection of recommendations? I’m a sucker… I just kept clicking ‘Buy Now’, and what makes things worse? They were free!

Imagine what I’m like with money…. (no don’t… ¬_¬)

Anyhoo, some of the books will appear on my blog later on in life, as books that define my life in some way. For now the books marked with * are books I’ve read and loved.

Ta da….

  • Lair of the White Worm
