Everyone loves a freebie...and if you love books as much as we do its always nice to find some that are made available to the public for free. Over the last few months I have either stumbled upon on been directed to these great websites for literary lovers!
Heritage History: This is a website established by one of the families I have recently met who are real history buffs. It contains scanned copies of history books published prior to 1923. The copyright has expired on these books and cannot be renewed. This allows them to be made available free without breaching any copyright laws.
Authorama: These are books in the public domain and are free online by arrangement with the author or under the same copyright release.
Google Books also offers some free books that you can preview online
If you and your family are going green here are a couple of ideas for book lovers that are also eco-conscious. At Swaptree and Bookins you can trade your used books with other booklovers for free. All you pay for is postage. Thanks to Dina for sharing her tip about bookins!
