As school is getting back in session, this week, we are featuring free classics as part of our Free eBook of the Day series. With that in mind, today’s Free eBook of the Day is Leo Tolstoy‘s classic War and Peace.

Here is an excerpt: “To be an enthusiast had become her social vocation and, sometimes even when she did not feel like it, she became enthusiastic in order not to disappoint the expectations of those who knew her. The subdued smile which, though it did not suit her faded features, always played round her lips expressed, as in a spoiled child, a continual consciousness of her charming defect, which she neither wished, nor could, nor considered it necessary, to correct.”

Project Gutenberg has the free download.
