As far as Early Christian History goes, the best free ebook resource is the Early Church Fathers Series (aka, Ante-Nicene, Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers) that is available through The Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL).  Although the works in this 38-volume series are 19th century English translations, they are a good starting place for people wanting to read primary sources of the Early Christian era in translation.  Although not available for FREE in Kindle format, it is available for FREE in PDF formats, which should work well on most tablets (Kindle Fire, iPad, etc).  Click the link below to access this great resource:

Ancient HistoryThis will be the first post in a series that will, in effect, create a library of classics that are available as free ebooks.

This first group of books focus on Ancient History.  We have selected these books as recommended reading on this topic.

Editor’s Note: These are all important books on this topic. However, they are all in the public domain, which means that they are at least 90 years old.  For some works, newer and better translations may exist; some parts of the historical accounts in these books may be considered outdated today, but these works still stand as solid introductions to the basic people and stories of antiquity. And, of course, they are free.
