The other day I received an email from the Heritage Historywebsite:
How would you like a FREE history book every month? Starting this August (as in, right now), Heritage History will be offering a free e-book every month, downloadable to any tablet, e-reader, or home computer. We’re currently featuring “The Story of England” by Samuel B. Harding, a middle-school history of England featuring study questions at the end of each chapter.
I did like the idea of a free history book so I followed the link and now we have The Story of England on our ereaders ready to enjoy… all for free.
If you have never visited the Heritage History website, here is a bit of information:
Heritage History promotes traditional narrative history curriculum for homeschool. Our online library contains biographies, legends, adapted literature, and introductory histories. All were written for the general reader and are easy and enjoyable to read.
Some time ago, I wrote another homeschooling post about Heritage History. I said:
This site contains a library of history books written especially for students and young adults. All the books are in the public domain and were published before 1923. I guess they all could be described as living books. Does it matter that they’re old books? I don’t think so. Isn’t history old?
If you’d like to read the complete post, it’s called How I Bought 83 Books for $35.
So… you can read all the books online, or buy them in ebook form (both epub and Kindle files are available). Ebooks can be bought and downloaded individually, or collections are available for purchase on CD.
And you can even get one ebook every month… free. Here’s the link for this month’s book just in case you can’t locate it: The Story of England
If that sounds good, please visit Heritage History. It’s a big site with lots to browse. As well as the books, there’s study aids such as maps, and study curriculum guides to go with the books.
By the way, have you downloaded this month’s free ebook from Bethlehem Books? It’s called For Texas and Freedom by E.H. Staffelbach.
That’s two free ebooks every month. I am so glad I have a Kindle!
