Project Gutenberg brings public-domain books into the digital age—and many of these titles are now available for the iPad for free. A selection of popular titles, among the hundreds now available, should whet your appetite for some of the classics of world literature. We'll start with Sherlock Holmes for no reason other than Benedict Cumberbatch has turned Arthur Conan Doyle's brilliant detective into something of a phenomenon, which completely washes the bad taste of Robert Downey Jr's rendition. Don't make the mistake of starting with The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes , which has an engaging title, but isn't the first in the series. Jane Austen's "novel of manners" is one of the most beloved reads of all time, easily worthy of a download even if you've seen one of the many movies made of the novel.
Before you go
Not only is the device great for watching videos or playing mobile games wherever and whenever, but the iPad can also take users to some pretty cool literary places, too. Classic works of literature, poetry, and nonfiction are all readily available through sources like Project Gutenberg. The rise of online self-publishing also means that voracious readers can find unknown indie works on iTunes and the Google Play Store, though, the quality may vary. Here is our handpicked selection of the best free ebooks for the iPad, so you can tote some of the best titles around no matter where you go. However, although books downloaded from the iBookstore will automatically be saved in the ePub format, you want to ensure you download the correct file when using other ebook services. Afterward, launch iTunes, click the main menu in the top-left corner, and select Add File to Library from the drop-down menu prior to choosing your desired ePub book from its respective save location. Then, simply sync the ebook with your iPad using iTunes as would normally.
