John Carter

John Carter is a new movie Disney is releasing in March.  Jeremy and I have seen random previews and thought it looked interesting.

Here is the synopsis from IMDBTransplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.

The reason I post this is because I did not realize that this is an old series of books written by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  I know his name because he also wrote the Tarzan series of books.  I have always like the story of Tarzan, so I am hoping to like John Carter also.

The fun thing about the John Carter series is a portion of them are free because they were printed before 1923.  I am adding them to my Amazon Free Books page.  

I said I wouldn't add classics, but since they are relevant to the movie I thought I would.  I am excited to delve into the world of John Carter.  Maybe you will join me.  If you do, let me know what you think.
