Kindle Store – Very Best Public Domain Books

A lot of the new public domain books (all free) that Amazon have added are making their way up the charts.

These books doing particularly well makes sense as these are real gems i.e. Amazon earlier used to leave out the best 1 or 2 works of most authors. Now they’re adding them – talk about the benefits of competition for readers.
