e-Tales of the Alhambra

After hearing so much about Washington Irving during our trip around the Alhambra, we were naturally curious about his landmark book, Tales of the Alhambra. My father commented that he supposed it would be available online for free somewhere. I concurred, and speculated that it might be available for the kindle...

Challenge accepted. I sat on a conveniently located stone wall next to the Alhambra complex, just outside the magnificent 'Gate of Justice'. Activated the 3G wireless on the kindle. Searched for and found 3 kindle copies of Irving's tales. Downloaded one for 99c on the spot.

The wonderous powers of modern technology.
