free classic books for your kindle

I am so excited to share this link to an amazing amount of books, for free, easy to access and load onto your Kindle device. I love the simpicity of getting them this way, even though, many of these books are free in the public domain due to old copywrite laws. One can carry them around easily, wherever one goes.

Get a nice link up here at Ben and Me.

Enjoy!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
