London, Dec 27 (ANI): Britain seems to have finally accepted the trend of electronic books as Amazon confirmed yesterday that Kindles were the biggest selling products this Christmas.

Classics like Charles Dickens and Jane Austen have resurged in popularity because they can be downloaded for free onto electronic readers, reports the Telegraph.

Now, Amazon and the Apple iPad can bring back works of many dead literary greats without paying anything because they are out of copyright.

The most popular e-books over the Christmas period were Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes', Charles Dickens's 'A Christmas Carol' and Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'.

Even Homer's 'The Iliad' made it into Amazon's top 20 of free Kindle e-books last week. (ANI)
