The Loss of the S.S. Titanic by Lawrence Beesley

The Loss of the S.S. Titanic by Lawrence Beesley on my Kindle.

The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic is only a few days away (Titanic sank on April 15th, 1912).  And for those who want to explore its history, I can recommend a free Ebook.

The Loss of the S.S. Titanic by Lawrence Beesley is a first hand account from one of the survivors. Mr. Beesley survived the Titanic tragedy and, after encouragement, wrote his own story of how the events unfolded.

The book is in the public domain and available for free download at Project Guttenberg. It can also be downloaded for free through for Kindle.

I own a couple of Kindles and downloaded the book.  Rather than download the free editon,  my Kindle edition was purchased for only .99 from (I started reading it last night and it’s hard to put down!)

What’s the difference between the free version and the paid version?  The free version is just text.  The paid version, however,  has illustrations plus an interactive table of contents.  I like to make use of all the interactive features on my Kindle, so I felt the .99 was a real bargain.

Another free Ebook regarding the Titanic is Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters.  I downloaded the free edition, but also offers it as a paid Kindle Ebook with additional features.

If you have the extra coin, you can also download the classic A Night to Remember by Walter Lord.  Many feel that this is still the definitive retelling of Titanic’s final minutes.

If you want to enjoy a quick read on Titanic (something you can readi n one sitting) I recommend Lifeboat No. 8: An Untold Tale of Love, Loss, and Surviving the Titanic (Kindle Single).  It was historically accurate and gave yet another side of what the survivors endured on that fateful night. In this case, the survivors of Lifeboat No.8.

And, I stumbled on a new offering regading the history of the Titanic. It’s 101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic . . . but Didn’t!

So, get a Kindle and grab a free Ebook about the Titanic. Or, buy any number of other Kindle books which recount Titanic’s tragic maiden voyage.  And, with a Kindle, you can download and be reading in less than 60 seconds.

I love my Kindle!  It opens you to a whole new world of learning, history, and entertainment.
