If you are stuck at home this weekend, looking for something to do that doesn’t involve a television, why don’t you grab your Kindle (or your phone) and read some of the “classics” that you might have missed in high school. If you really enjoyed them, maybe re-read them as an adult. Maybe it was a book you skimmed in high school and then got the cliff notes.

Suddenly, it seems, most people have a lot more “free time” on their hands to get some reading that they’ve been too busy to get to. Amazon rewards the young and old with some excellent classic literature free in digital form to read while you self-quarantine during this global coronavirus pandemic.

Some of the titles available free on Amazon include:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (AmazonClassics Edition)

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Dracula by Bram Stoker

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

      • There are so many great classics, but here are a few favorites that come to mind:

        The Picture of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde
        Rebecca, by Daphne Du Maurier
        The Jungle, by Upton Sinclair (not to be confused with The Jungle Book)
        East of Eden, Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, The Pearl, by John Steinbeck
        Any novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (the first book to feature Holmes and Watson is, A Study in Scarlet)

        Happy reading!
