Great deal on Steinbeck books
Back when I had the old Rocket eBook and then the Sony Reader, I downloaded a huge number of classics from Gutenberg. I was surprised and disappointed to find that evidently John Steinbeck's books are still under copyright, and not available there.
I had forgotten about that until today when I went to the Kindle site and searched for his books. Wow, they are there and most prices are around $1.50 to 2.50 or so. I have wanted to re-read many for years, so just bought several of them. Those are bargain prices for wonderful books.

That's good for kindle-owners to know.
Steinbeck died in 1968, so it will be a while before his books enter the public domain anywhere. (1st January 2119 in Canada.)

I would bet that in the US the original 2119 is probably more likely to be the date that his books go out of copyright.
