Looking for a good book to read… on your computer? Here’s a listing of over three dozen books available for free download under a Creative Commons license.
No gimmicks, no catch. If you like it… well, then, maybe you’ll buy a hard copy (if you’re able) so that the author will make a little money. If you don’t like it, no big loss.
All I know is that it’s making me lust after one of these even more than before.
Hmmm . . . what’ll it be . . . The Future of Canadian Copyright Law, or The How and the Tao of Old Time Banjo. Decisions, decisions.
Hmmm…I don’t know if this would be as snuggly as a book, but it’s certainly cheaper.
Or you could download one of 20,000 classic books that have passed into the public domain that are available through Project Gutenberg, or one of almost 100 free sci-fi titles at Baen Free Library.
we spend 1/2 the year in Mexico with 4 kids and have no library access (in English) during that time, so we make great use of free literature via the World Wide School Library http://www.worldwideschool.org/library/catalogs/bysubject-top.html
Thanks, Ryan and Kathy! Great resources! 🙂
i LOVE Project Gutenberg, and used to be a proofreader on the site (back when i was at my other job and had 6 hours a day to just surf the internet…man, i miss those days, but not that place!)….it’s really fun stuff for when you have time to kill and want to help the greater good (http://www.pgdp.net)
I have one of those books – The Holy Tango of Literature – and it’s hilarious! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes literature and wordplay.
I can’t figure out how to open or download. 🙁
I’m interested in free books
