1984 George Orwell Free eBook (and others!)

For all of you literary fans out there, I thought you might like this link to a free ebook website Planet eBook.

George Orwell's Classic "1984" is set in a future world where the citizens are ruled with an iron fist (and thought police) by their dictatorial government. Amazon describes it as follows:
Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101; Nineteen Eight-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime.
