This is a list of websites where one can find free e-books! One can both read the text on the website itself and download it free on to one’s computer, tablet, e-reader, or smartphone. The reason these titles are free is that they are in the public domain. When a book or poem are in the public domain it means that the intellectual property rights of the original author have expired, become forfeited, or are no longer applicable. Often the author has passed away and no one in their family or estate owns the rights to the work any longer.
