81 Books, Cost $0.00

Even if you don't yet have an Amazon Kindle or other E-Book reader, you can download Kindle For PC and, once it's installed, start dowloading free e-books from the Amazon Kindle website and other websites. This morning I gave it a try, and when I decided to stop, I had downloaded 81 books, such as:

Dracula by Bram Stoker
A Tramp Abroad by Mark Twain
Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Personal Memoirs of U.S. Grant Vols. 1&2, Ulysses S. Grant
The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

et. al. many others, as well. Most of Baum's Oz books. Andersen's and Grimm's Fairy Tales. You can even download K-12 textbooks in many subjects.

h/t Instapundit.

I purchased a Kindle for Father's Day, and have downloaded over 200 books and short stories for about $30 total. As you point out, many of them are free - and there are some 30- and 50-book anthologies for 99 cents.
