Good downloads from Gutenberg

Tonight I downloaded Franklin's AutobiographyDavid Copperfield, and Mathematical Amusements from Gutenberg onto my Kindle. Then I took one look at the last one, laughed at my foolishness, and deleted it so my brain wouldn't explode. That's a book from the 19th century by the Englishman Dudeney. Fuggedaboutit, as my Joisey brother would say.

The first two won't harm my brain, though; I know because I've read them before.

Even if you don't have a Kindle, do check out Project Gutenberg, where you can find lots of free (if often dated) reading material you can read on your monitor or print out.

You downloaded Mathematical Amusements - of course you were going to laugh!

I love Project Gutenberg. They have an ample selection of children's literature as well.

I've got my Iphone for ebook material. It does everything for me. I absolutely love it.
As for reading, I just came back from the Love is Murder conference with 3 more books to add to my To Be Read pile which grows larger every day. I need longer days.

I put all my books up for the Kindle, but I don't have one. I have so much trouble sneaking in a little reading time it probably wouldn't be worth it. I should really retire and just read, but I gotta write.
