Read books for free

Is it too cold to go out to the library? Would you rather not spend money to buy books? Are you tired of reading the books you already have? Do you know someone who is? Then check out the sites below for FREE access to tens of thousands of books. We're talking full text! Earlier this semester, I read Brave New World online for a class. It was fast, easy and free. In most cases the books are in the public domain in the US, and so are older. Search for your favorite titles today!

* The University of Pennsylvania Library offers over 20,000 free books with new ones added all the time.

* Project Gutenberg is the oldest producer of free electronic books (eBooks or etexts) on the Internet. They list over 13,000 books, most are older literary works that are in the public domain in the United States.

* The National Academies Pess offers over 3,000 free books online. Most deal with science, engineering or medicine.

For more on the growing connections between literature and the internet, read this article. Happy reading!

Hello, I hope you're still reading. The free full-text of Brave New World, by Adolus Huxley can be found at www.huxley.net/bnw/one.html and www.bibliomania.com/0/0/100/1956/frameset.html among other sites. It's a great book. Enjoy! And please visit "So what can I do" again soon.

Well...I've been searching for both Harry Potter books and Princess Diaries books online. I have them at home, but sometimes I forget them or leave them there and I want to read them while I'm at work. So it would be convenient to find either one online.
Anyway...considering Princess Diaries 10 (Forever Princess) isn't even pubished yet...it'd be pretty difficult to find it online. There is, however, an excerpt of it on www.megcabot.com if you're interested.
