    "One kindle book that is totally free that is really outstanding is The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. It's unbelievable to me that I can download these classic old stories, read them in my own home, and not even have to pay a cent! Sherlock is one of the greatest characters and great detectives of all time. This is a must read if you haven't had the opportunity to read them before! "

    "What can one say about William Shakespeare's "MacBeth"? It sets the template for every story of betrayal that we are currently familiar with today. It will take you a bit to understand and interpret the language, but the web of sin drawn up by all characters untangles itself in the most devious of fashions. A classic, highly recommended. "
