Free Books Online . . .

This amazing site, The Online Books Page, lists over 35,000 free books on the web.

According to the About Page this site was founded, and is edited, by John Mark Ockerbloom in 1993. John is currently a digital library planner and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. He is solely responsible for the content of the site.

Their reason for being: "The Online Books Page is a website that facilitates access to books that are freely readable over the Internet. It also aims to encourage the development of such online books, for the benefit and edification of all."

Here you will find an index to books online; links to directories and archives; special exhibits; and info on how you can promote the growth of online books.

Be sure to check out the special features section which includes: A Celebration of Women Writers; Banned Books Online; and Prize Winners Online.

What a great resource for everyone and especially for educators!

So Many Books, So Little Time! (Did Frank Zappa really say this?)
