Karena (karenafagan) The Age of Innocence is public domain so there are a lot of great ways to enjoy this book. Besides your local library (also see if they have an online catalog. Lots of libraries are starting to have these).

Jenna You can download the Kindle version for free at Amazon, and then the Audible version at a discount (since it is also owned by Amazon) and switch seamlessly between reading and listening.

Robert (rdowens) It looks like time is going to be tight for me this month. I began reading this and only managed the first 10 pages or so. The writing style does not flow well for me. Nevertheless, I am going to try to listen to this.

There is a public domain recording of this book at:
http://librivox.org/the-age-of-innoce...

I've never listened to a book all the way through before. We'll see how it works for me. :)


Wendy I downloaded an audio version from iTunes for free. It was part of the university of Southern Florida's lit 2 Go programming.


Anindyta (fingerprintale) | 8 comments Got it from Guttenberg ;D
And start reading it now...
I found it a little harder to digest but I'll try my best though


Amanda Lasen (blaircaldwell86) I've had it on my Kindle for iPhone for a long time so this gives me a good reason to finally read it. I downloaded it for free!

I agree. I found it's difficult to follow its flow. Tried the librivox too. Still couldn't get the story. Have to hit the replay button many times.

Sundas (sundas_azim) | 3 comments Hi, i'd like some help on downloading books... i started recently and i don't seem to be able to do it unless they are in pdf format. how does kindle, epub etc work?


Michael Colwin | 18 comments Different ereaders are compatible with different formats so you have to find out what formats are compatible with your reader. If you want to read the book on your computer then you need to download a program like calibre to read (or convert) it.

Robert (rdowens) I have given up on this book. This is most definitely not my kind of story. I suspect my wife would enjoy it. The references to high society mean little to me and I tire at the work I must do as the reader to comprehend the pretentiousness.

I think I shall rid myself of this one and begin anew on Friday with the next book.

Not every book must be read by everyone. ;)

Definitely not. I totally gave up on Madame Bovary as did a few others. Since this group is about having fun, why force yourself into something you aren't interested in? Looking forward to reading Life of Pi with you though!

Posterous is being discontinued as a blogging site from 30 April 2013 so I've moved my blog to Wordpress. The new link to the information about Feedbooks as a source of free classics for Kindle and other e-readers is here.
