Tales of Faerie is run on a budget. Or rather, it's completely a labor of love. The books I read are received as gifts or borrowed from the library, so I'm always on the lookout for a good deal.
For those of you who have a Kindle, you probably already know you can get great deals on ebooks. There's also a series of public domain books that volunteers have made into ereader format and are FREE to those with Kindles! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a way to search only free books (UPDATE: with help from Emilyn J. Wood, here is a link to books with the keyword "fairy tale" and sorted with lowest price first) but I've collected some of the fairy tale books that might interest readers most.
Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know, edited by Hamilton Wright Mabie
Favorite Fairy Tales, edited by Logan Marshall
English Fairy Tales, collected by Joseph Jacobs
Fairy Tales From All Nations, edited by Anthony R. Montalba, Illustrated by Richard Doyle
This is only a partial list. There are free kindle editions for fiction books I haven't read, and other tales from around the world, such as Irish,Swedish, South African and American. Browse through the Kindle ebook store with the keyword fairy tale to find more, although finding free ones might take some digging. Although I've mentioned before that I'm pretty old fashioned when it comes to books-I prefer the physical, hard copies, which are still easier in my opinion for taking notes and flipping through afterwards, although ebooks have note taking abilities. But, you can't deny the good deals that Kindle provides. Plus, Kindles are ideal for traveling. I've got a couple of trips coming up this summer and I'm the type of person who likes to bring multiple books on vacation, so clearly a Kindle is a nice, lightweight alternative to stuffing several books in my baggage.
