Being confined in our homes should not be an excuse on why we can’t learn something new. The power of the Internet is in our hands and it isn’t hard to search for free books and reads that will save us from boredom. If you don’t know where to start looking, we’re here to help you find the people and places on the Internet that provide free reads for everyone.
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Through the archive.org, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum will provide you with books about art and culture. It can give you knowledge about Picasso, Aztec Empire, Expressionism, and many others. This is a treasure trove for those who would like to learn something new about art’s history.
Haruki Murakami gives away reads like "Kino," "A Walk to Kobe," and “Samsa in Love” for the public to enjoy. Read these three and more through the links given by Open Culture.
We’ve come to love Jerrold Tarrog because of his films like Heneral Luna and Bliss. Now, we’ll love him even more as he shares The Battle of Tirad Pass shotlist, Sana Dati full script, and the Faculty shooting script. It may even inspire you to enter the movie industry.
Since there are lockdowns and community quarantines all over the world, Scribs, the largest digital library, decided to give away its subscription for free for 30 days. This means it will open its library of audio books, ebooks, and magazine articles without any payment. Seize the opportunity now!
With a library of over 60,000 free ebooks, Project Gutenberg is a place where you won’t run out of reads. You’ll find great literary works in their collections, even those older works for which U.S. copyright has expired. No fee or registration required!
The Literature Network
Are you a great fan of literature? Then, The Literature Network will surely be a treat for you. They have about 3,500 full books and 4,400 short stories and poems made by over 260 authors. Be inspired with words now.
There are free ebooks you can download via Google. But if you’re willing to pay for a title you want, there are also ebooks with fees available.
Entertain yourself with these books and reads and you’ll surely have no time to say “boring” within this quarantine period. This is a great time to read and learn. Let us know what you’ve downloaded and read so far.
