50 top free ebook classics in Kindle and epub format

Free Kindle and epub ebook classics

One of the many things that make ereaders so useful and valuable is the fact that you can download so many free ebooks.

I have compiled a list of my top 50 free ebook classics and provided you with two download links: one for the Kindle and the other for other ereaders capable of reading the standard ebook format, namely the ‘epub’ format.  In this way you can build a useful library that you can carry around with you without breaking your back.  You can always delete those ebooks which you don’t need.

The good news is that all the above ebooks will only use around 2% of your Kindle 2 storage and about 1% of your Kindle DX storage.

Download the below 50 ebooks in Kindle format here
Download the below 50 ebooks in epub format here

Once you have downloaded one of the above you will need to unzip the downloaded zip file. If you don’t already have an unzipping utility installed then a nice free utility to use is Zipgenius.

After that you can follow these instructions for transferring the ebooks to your Kindle.
