Books Should Be Free

When I posted about Common Core online text exemplars, I had never seen this site, and I couldn't wait to share it on the blog today:

Books Should Be Free has both ebooks and audiobooks on their site...yes, for FREE! You can search by title, author, or keyword, and there are books of all genres, not just for children. It goes without saying that these are not new books, but many are classics and I saw several of my favorite books from childhood there.


Most of the audiobooks can be streamed or downloaded in several formats. They are also available as eBooks for Kindle, etc., or you can read them in your browser.

One note of caution - there is an advertisement in the center of each page, once you have clicked on a book. Many of them look like this

Download a Free Audiobook
100,000+ Titles. Download Now. 
Listen on Your iPod or MP3 Player!

This is not the free download you want. (It is a 30 day trial for, which is a great site, but not free.) Instead of clicking on this ad, scroll down to Audiobook Downloads, Stream, and eBook Downloads to make your choice.

I hope you find many, many books that you and your kiddos will enjoy!
