  1. Thanks for sharing the list and and links as well. Some great classics I remember as a child as well. I am going to read a couple of them with my youngest son over the summer. I know he will love the Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

  2. PERFECT TIMING!! I just picked up a used Kindle for $30 yesterday and have been searching for free GOOD books for the kids. Thank you!

  3. This is the whole reason I bought an Kindle--to get the old classics. You might also try looking at Project Gutenberg which also carries public domain books in Kindle format.

  4. So many great books. I have a lot of these but will add more now. Thanks!

  5. I found this great site as a great source for clean Christian ebooks and great books for kids as well. Great list. I have most of these or have read them. Great place to start.
