50 best free books on Kindle

Most of us will remember the first time we had our eyes opened by To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee's compelling coming-of-age classic set in the Depression-era Deep South. And now the adventures of Scout Finch and co. are opening up to a whole new generation of readers, thanks to its release as an ebook for the very first time on its 54th anniversary.

The audio version, read by Oscar winning actress Sissy Spacek, is also available to download, in a digital move that has "amazed and humbled" 88-year-old author Harper Lee.

Although Mockingbird is actually priced at £3.28, the internet is positively bursting at the seams with other stellar reads for your Kindle that are completely free. So if you're feeling the crunch after investing in a snazzy new e-reader, fear not. Here we round-up our top 50 free books to download so that you can furnish your electronic library without spending a penny. Read on to find out what our current favourites are...
