Don’t you think that free things are wonderful? I sure do. That’s why I was stunned and amazed by this opportunity to get a lot of G.A. Henty‘s books for free. I don’t know about you, but my son and I beat a hasty path to the door of our library every other week. And my B&N and Amazon accounts can be staggering (according to my husband). So I was all over this offer.
Mr. Henty was an author from the mid-1800′s. His stories are mainly historical adventures. Many of them are violent and some are politically incorrect in similar ways to those books that we know and love by Mark Twain. But I know a lot of boys who love these stories. And getting boys to read can be quite a challenge.
Here’s how you can get your free books: Unless you have your own Kindle or something similar, you will have to download the free Kindle for PC program right onto your computer. But it’s very easy and pretty nice to have on your PC.
Then you start picking and choosing from Henty’s extensive collection of stories. It’s very easy and mom friendly. My son downloaded thirteen books within ten minutes time. This is a limited time offer through Amazon, so take advantage while you can.
You can find other free Kindle books by typing “free” in the search bar. Many of the classics, that we’d love our children to explore, can be found for free using this option.
I also recently learned that we can give back to VaHomeschoolers in a small way by going to Amazon.com through the VaHomeschoolers Bookstore. Just click the link at the top of the page and purchase as usual. VaHomeschoolers gets a tiny portion of the proceeds from anything that you purchase. Now that’s an easy way to help out!
