Free Kindles for British Lit (Part 2 of 2)

What's Schoolin'?

I'm on a role organizing our British Literature resources.  I went through my book list and am posting the freebies here while I'm tracking them down.  When I post the book list I'll link to all of the books with regular links.

Here goes...

Yikes, there are a lot of choices and I don't know which is the recommended version.  Here is the list and look for free kindle downloads: Beowolf selections

Phew!  I now have 33 free kindle books in my "British Lit" collection!  I truly prefer the real-life book in my hands but now I have peace that if I can't check them out at the right time we have them, literally, on-hand :).  

I hope this is helpful to someone else who might need some freebies like I do!

Referral fees from any of the affiliate links help to support our homeschool.
