  1. Superb list. At times e-Book stores seem so overwhelming and it's quite risky to easily trust those that are offered for free. Thanks.

    1. Thanks, Amy! Browsing the shelves in an e-Book store is a little more difficult, isn't it? Amazon has a wonderful "Top 100 Free Books" list for the different ages. I have learned on the Nook to just sort the price low to high to find the freebies!

  2. Thanks for the list! I just got my kindle and I'm so excited to load it up for the kids. I've heard such good things about how kids love it!
