Reading is fun … and free

In the old days free books were only available at the library. Well, the library is still there and better than ever. Most of them now offer the ability to electronically download books without leaving your house. If you’re not fortunate enough to have a library card at one of these libraries, read on for other choices of free reading materials.

Whether you’re using a Kindle, a PC or an iPad, you can download free books from Amazon. On the iPad, just install the app from the app store. The PC app and information are available via this link: Amazon PC Software.

Another iPad app that offers a variety of free books is (ironically enough) Free Books. This app breaks the books down by genre and author. Whether you’re looking for Aristotle or Voltaire, adventure or western, it’s all there waiting for you.

Free reading materials are also available at Freebooks.com. Categories include biography, fiction, mystery and romance among others. There is also a Top Downloads section. The books on this site are available in multiple formats, including text and PDF.

Next there’s Project Gutenberg. Project Gutenberg offers over 40,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free Kindle books, download them or read them online.

Finally, make sure you visit www.justfreebooks.info. JustFreeBooks searches the content of more than 700 websites, including gutenberg.org, wikibooks.org and archive.org.

So turn off the TV, forget the DVR, and leave those DVDs in their cases. Download a good book or three and give your imagination a workout.

    Cool! You can volunteer through Project Gutenberg to help make more free books available. (It’s easy online work at pgdp.net.)
