Here's a good place for beginner pieces on pdf, with midi too.  If learning to play the piano is like going on a long walk, I've got about thirty miles already, thousands to go.  The reasoning is that if it takes (say) 1500 hours to learn to play reasonably well, and if you walk at three miles per hour, you could walk 4500 miles in that time.  So, I could theoretically walk from our house to, say, Tripoli, and back, and take in a few detours.  My God!  Can that be right?
