Read E-Classics for Free

By on May 12, 2011

Because copyrights eventually expire, anyone can (re)publish works by William Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Jane Austen, and countless other writers. In general, if you’re paying for material that was written before 1923, you don’t need to. Instead, download thousands of classics for free, for use on your computer, phone, Kindle, or other e-reading device.

Project Gutenberg houses 33,000 free e-books and includes links to a total of 100,000 e-books hosted on other sites. Just search the site for a title, or browse the top 100 downloads to get a sense of the catalog.

Download books in a format that your device can read, and transfer them over. You’ll gain access to a deep library without paying a cent.
