I thought I would share some of my favorite books with my readers.  Let me know what you think about them.  In no particular order:

The Histories of Herodotus - Ancient Greek history, the first secular attempt at writing the history of a people.  Also available as a free eBook here.

Orthodoxy, by G.K. Chesterton - Funny and insightful look at modern philosophy and Christian theology.  Also available as a free eBook here.

The Prince, by Machiavelli - Seminal work on power politics... another of the oft quoted never read books.  Free eBook here.

I love free stuff.  Particularly when that free stuff is really useful, high quality stuff.  Here are some links to some really great free stuff:

Project Gutenberg - This online project is working to put into electronic form every book that is available in the public domain.  They have a huge collection of eBooks that are free.  Basically, any book written before Mickey Mouse (1923) is available or will be soon.

FeedBooks - Free, public domain, and Creative Commons books.  Also commercial books as well.  Available through the Web or on your Android device through the Aldiko book reader.

Linux Operating System - Most distributions are free, many will run very well on old hardware.  I run Linux on my laptop and desktop and rarely have any need at all for Windows.

Youversion - Free Bible application for Web, Android, Blackberry, iOS, Windows 7 phone, Java
