    If you see a "Get Your Free Ipod Nano Here" banner ads you KNOW it's one o' those "too good to be true" scams. Same here.

    Sandra Hill books aren't going to be found on the Internet for free. Not legally. Copyright law ensures that her intellectual property (in this case, her novels) ought to be gained by no other way than a bookstore.

    The only chances of reading ANY book online, free, without risking breaking the law, would be reading books in the public domain - books whose copyrights have expired. Examples would be Mark Twain's works, Thomas Hardy's works, Shakespeare, etc. Basically, the classics.

    If you ARE interested in the classics, Project Gutenberg ( http://www.gutenberg.org/ ) is the grand-daddy of all public domain e-text purveyors. Bibliomania ( http://www.bibliomania.com/ ) and Bartleby ( http://www.bartleby.com/ ) feature less in quantity, but offer great literary selections. And if you still can't find what you want, the Internet Public Library is home to the greatest page of links to free 'n' legal electronic texts. Click on the Reading Room link on the navigation bar at left, and it's all downhill from there ( http://www.ipl.org/ ).

    Source(s): Researched Intellectual Property law. Read and enjoyed books online at the above mentioned sites, knowing it's legal (and happy, too).

    You probably cannot find any. This is a genre that is fairly new and you are asking about specific modern authors. Every book like that is going to be copywrited and you're not going to be able to find them free anywhere. However, you can find a lot of very good historical fiction books in any good used book store and also on amazon.com. They will only cost you a buck or less, but on amazon shipping will cost more than the book itself.

    I doubt you'll find Sandra Hill books for free, but you may be able to find other historical romance books in the "Free ebooks" section of http://www.fictionwise.com/ You might also check Microsoft Reader's free ebook section at http://www.mslit.com/default.asp?mjr=FRE

    while reading a book, you're stimulating the human brain. You transform your reading and literacy skills therefore you along the way, become more literate. Despite having today's modern tools, you need to be in a position to read still.

    While watching t.v. can be good fun, it isn't doing anything to the human brain.
