Want to have the entire works of William Shakespeare or Mark Twain in one file, and completly free?
One of the biggest benefits of eBooks is that they are convenient. One file can contain 5 thousand or 500 thousand words. Instead of downloading 50 seperate books from one author, you can get the most of their publications by clicking on a download button just once.
Our favorite source for free eBooks, Project Guttenburg, has several files that include complete electronic publications of selected classic authors.
