Free Public Domain Books

Everyone agrees not enough is being done to encourage people to read. Those who can read don’t realize how lucky they are. Here are a list of free Public Domain Ebook sites throughout the world.

The content of these works becomes available for public use. Anyone is free to use it – but also to reuse it, for instance publish a new edition. Therefore you may find in major ebookstores (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBook Store, or Google Play Books) public domain books that are not free.

Go there and download. Enjoy.
