Top 5 Best Online Websites For Free Books

Jocelyn Reeder, Reporter

Are you tired of paying for books you really want to read? How about paying too much for a book that you will probably read in a day? Well say no more! The top five best websites for free books are Librivox, Authorama, International Children’s Library, Bibliomania, and The Online Book Page.

Librivox: Librivox offers tons of different books you can choose from. You can volunteer to read an audiobook or you can simply listen to someone else read to you. You can listen on your computer, phone, other mobile devices, and even burn one onto a CD! All you have to do is download the book to your device and it is ready to go.

Authorama: Authorama offers a variety of genres by many different authors. You can read online or offline and it is completely free. Even if you are overseas, you can still download the books you really want to read. When you click on a book and start reading, the book has footnotes and the titles of the next couple of chapters on the bottom of the page. Some of the books even have illustrations on the page for you to get a better understanding of the text.

International Children’s Digital Library: This website has tons of books from all over the world. You can read books from Mexico to Singapore. There are also options on Spanish books from different high schools. Teachers, Students, Children, Etc. can use this website. You can read anonymously or you can make an account to make a bookshelf and set various personal preferences. Teachers can use this site to have kids write a story about the picture you chose from a book. There are over 100 books that have been translated and are available to read in different languages.

Bibliomania: Bibliomania is my personal favorite. It gives you the options to read, study, research, and shop. There are many study guides to books you read created from people all over the world. You can get a better understanding of certain books and get more into them. You can read e-books, poems, articles, short stories, and plays – which are all free. You can get all of Shakespeare’s plays.

The Online Books Page: The Online Books Page has over 2 million different types of books in different formats. You can browse titles and authors, subjects, and new listings. All you have to do is click on the book you want to read and start reading. There is also a little icon that lets you find out more about the book you are reading. There are books on here that came out this year as well.
