“A Christmas Carol” Is Free eBook Of The Day

The holiday season is here, and today’s Free eBook of the Day was chosen to get you in the mood. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is the Free eBook today.

It’s worth revisiting this classic tale once a season. Here is an excerpt: “Oh! But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner! Hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster. The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue; and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice. A frosty rime was on his head, and on his eyebrows, and his wiry chin. He carried his own low temperature always about with him; he iced his office in the dog-days; and didn’t thaw it one degree at Christmas.”

Project Gutenberg has the free download.
