Free Books for Kindle and other Ereaders
There are, of course, many out of copyright books that are available for downloading for free including Godey's Lady's Books, Petersons and Arthur Home Journal.  Check out these sites for books before 1910.  Great way to get a glimpse into the Victorian era home life and fashion.

Antique Pattern Library
Project Gutenberg
