Free books! Who doesn't like free things? We all like to read, but a limited budget can curb intense desire. On this page, you can download books for free in PDF. You can have them instantly on your phone or computer to enjoy. Help yourself to as many as you like. Our list is starting small, but we will be adding to it, so bookmark us and check back often.
At the moment, the download books for free in PDF on this page are all in the Public Domain. Obviously, that means they are older books written in a style that often includes longer paragraphs than many modern readers are accustomed to seeing. That doesn't make them any less enjoyable. For example, take Robert Louis Stevenson's The Black Arrow a story of adventure and betrayal and, yes, even some romance. If you have been thrilled by the excitement of Treasure Island, I think you will find The Black Arrow even more enjoyable. Mr. Stevenson uses the old English of the period in which the novel is set. I found this difficult when reading aloud to students, so I did a version where I replaced most of the old English with more modern English. Both versions are available as free PDF downloads here.
Consider The Messiah Of The Cylinder, a little-known book by Victor Rousseau. I was amazed, when I read it, at the concepts in this 1917 book which are now taken for granted in science fiction and dystopian novels. Mr. Rousseau wrote this book partly to oppose his famous contemporary H.G. Well's book, When The Sleeper Wakes. This book is considered to have inspired C.S. Lewis when he wrote his science fiction trilogy.
Of course, Agatha Christie, the queen of mystery, needs no introduction. George MacDonald's works are known to have inspired writers such as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. G. A. Henty wrote about 100 adventure books for boys, which are rich in historical detail.
All these and more to come are yours for the taking...
A note to currently published authors: If you have a book [perhaps an older one or the first in a series] that you would be willing to give away as a downloadable PDF book, contact me. This could introduce you and your writing to new readers!
