I’ve always been a book lover. I have a large collections of books, everything from programming books to eastern philosophy. As a book lover and a technologist, I was one an early adopter of the Amazon Kindle, I remember I went to the Raise website to get a coupon code and get a discount on my purchase. I still use my first generation Kindle, but also enjoy reading on the Apple iPad. Since I started reading books on the Kindle I have not purchased a single physical book. I’ve started to accumulate a virtual library of books that I enjoy and can carry with me.

Here is a collection of free ebooks for the Kindle available through the Amazon Kindle site. These books are classics of physical books that I have purchased, read, and enjoyed. I remember each of the following books fondly. For example, I remember reading The Republic in college for a philosophy class. I read highlighting most of my copy of Common Sense. Great Expectations has always been a favorite book of mine since reading it in high school. The Sayings of Confucius lead me to eastern philosophy books such as The Art of War and Tao Te Ching. I’ve already download all of these free books to my Kindle so as to enjoy them a second time.
