The Open Library

Open Library‘s goal is to create a web page for every book ever published. This easy-to-navigate website archive has more than 1 million books on it, which makes it the perfect place to read books for free online. If you’re searching for a specific book to read, use the search bar. When you get your results, make sure the “Ebooks” box is checked so that the results only show you free books to read.



f you want free books to read online that aren’t just fiction, this is the website for you. Smashwords is an easy-to-use eBook site with a variety of genres, including poetry, classics, romance, and biographies. Just be sure to click the “free” tab when you search for books, because not all the website’s 478,000 books are free.


To access this site and its thousands of available eBooks, you need to create an account, but it’s totally free. Once you’ve created an account, the site prompts you to pick your favorite genres so that it can provide the best reading recommendations. Not only does BookBub let you access plenty of free books online, but it also offers you great deals on bestsellers, alerting you when big-name titles are available online (for a limited time) for 75 percent or more off.
