Free Books - Jane Austen, Sherlock Holmes and Amazon

This is Free Book Friday for you!

Today, I found out that I won Four Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) from I Swim for Oceans. Exciting, but I wanted to pass on that feeling of a new, free, unexpected book on to my readers. (Aren't Unexpected FREE Surprises the best?!)
So I did some searching online, to find free books of authors you might be interested in reading:
Pride and Prejudice
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."

Pride and Prejudice on the Sony Ebook Store  is $4.99. Not sure why, when everywhere else it is available for Free (copyright expired).
The Adventures of Sherlock HolmesThe Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
All day the wind had screamed and the rain had beaten against the windows, so that even here in the heart of great, hand-made London we were forced to raise our minds for the instant from the routine of life and to recognise the presence of those great elemental forces which shriek at mankind through the bars of his civilisation, like untamed beasts in a cage.

(Dee says: Sounded interesting)
 Everything seems to be going perfectly for Maya Davis: She has a great job at a coffee shop, gets along with her parents, and is happily single. That is until her best friend starts dating Maya’s high school sweetheart.

Kindle books can change price at any moment, so be sure to double check the price before one-clicking on the product page at Amazon. Books that are free in the US are generally at least $2 for international customers. In this case, try Project Gutenberg.
Even if you don't have a Kindle, download the ebook for Free and then read it using Calibre or Kindle for your Device. 
Pin It!


  1. I tried Project Gutenberg and I found A.C. Doyle's books for free (even with audio versions) no problem! Thanks a lot!

  2. Awesome! Who is AC Doyle? Interesting writing?

  3. A.C. Doyle - Arthur Conan Doyle, the doctor who became a writer and the creator of Sherlock Holmes. I like his books; I suppose he is worth reading!

  4. I like how some books are made free for e-readers and what not but its a a shame some newer texts can't be made available for like one lucky day or something...

    Great blog BTW. im a new follower (from the hopper) and have loved what i have seen
