Free Online Books 2 (for Homeschool, School and Children)
More Free Online Books - Great for Homeschool
ell, I’m realizing that some of the best historical fiction, literature and historical writings are ones published before 1960. Many
are not published any more. Fortunately, more and more are being put
online and we can access them for free. There are even free audiobooks
online—a few of which are read by actual human beings! Here are more websites with free online books that I’ve found. Take the time to look through these sites. There's a wealth of resources absolutely free which are great for homeschool and classroom teachers as well as parents.
http://www.e-book.com.au/freebooks.htm List of the best free digital libraries and free book sites.
http://www.onlinebooks4free.com/ This site indexes many free online books from various sites. Many topics including Science, Nature, History, LIterature, Religiion, Medicine, Social Studies, Geography, Music, Law and more.
http://freeonlinebooks.net/ (Mostly technical books.)
http://www.wordiq.com/books/index.php Free e-books searchable only by title of book. Not my favorite site, but you might find a book there that you can't somewhere else, so I added it to the list.
http://www.readprint.com/ Really nice free online book source. Offers Fiction, Non-fiction, Essays, Plays, Poetry and Short Stories. This site is one of the most organized sites I've seen with easy to read print and clickable chapters.
http://www.web-books.com/ This site is interesting. Offers many free online or downloadable e-books. You can download the book into a zip file to view in Word Document or you can view it in what they call a web-book. That is, you read it online. The neat thing is, when you read it online you can make notes in an online margin. I always believed in writing in the margin of my books, and here you can still do it even if you're reading it on the computer. You can register for free to save your web-books and notes online. Is that cool or what? (I'm not sure why this link always ads "default" into the address, taking you to the wrong page. You may want to copy and paste the link.)
