Get your summer reading for free

By now you may have realized that you have assigned reading over the summer.  But maybe the book you need is checked out, or you are going to be out of town, or you are already out of town and far and away from a library or bookstore.

Do not despair!  The Internets can help.  There are some great resources online where you can snag some classic literature to read on your e-reader, smartphone, laptop or computer.  Jane Eyre, The Odyssey, The Scarlet Letter -- it can all be yours!

I also discovered that Simon Pulse offers some of their books to read online completely free!  New stuff, too!  You do need to register, but as far as I can tell there is no other obligation.

And yes, I know -- reading these books is hard work.  You can do it -- be proud to keep your brain sharp, yo!  Here's a little humor and inspiration to see you through (be warned, there's cussing).

*I searched "free classics" and linked to that -- but you can find lots more available for purchase.
