I love to save money. But really, who doesn’t? One of my current favorite money savers are free e-books for my Kindle.
I can’t begin to imagine how many interpretations I have seen or read of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Heck, one of my November posts talked about watching Scrooged, which is one more retelling of this story.
Last year I watched Disney’s A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey for the first time. I enjoyed it thoroughly and highly recommend it but it’s definitely for slightly older kids than mine. It is quite frightening in some of the scenes but beautifully done. I was taken with the language and became curious as to the original story.
Given that A Christmas Carol is now public domain, I was able to download it for free on my Kindle (which I HIGHLY recommend!). The movie was so very much pulled from the book and I couldn’t get enough. I read it in just a few days, which wasn’t that difficult given how short it was.
It’s that time of year again so I decided to go back to this story. If you have the chance to read this before Christmas, I don’t think you’ll regret it. Not only is it a classic story but you can get it for free, and who doesn’t need something for free this time of year?
