For those who like a good read and like to occasionally meander through the wonderful tales found only in the classics, check out Gutenberg.org.

Over the holidays, I read all of the Anne books (except chronicles) and now I'm about to read some Dickens.

The list of books available is incredible. Basically, Gutenberg is trying to make all books whose copyright has expired, available to the world for free. The books are available in a variety of formats, including text, HTML and audio book.

There are treasures to be found and the access is totally free.

Gutenberg is great.

Those of us who have passed 40, tend to find it difficult to read the small print found in most books. Reading on the computer allows you to adjust the print to whatever size is most comfortable.
