Full Answer

  1. Browse sites that list free books

    As of 2014, there are several sites that feature large libraries for a reader to look through, such as Goodreads and Ebook 3000. The books are frequently categorized by genre to make browsing easier. Click the book desired and follow steps on the site to read the book.

  2. Consult archives of public domain books

    Some websites archive books that are in the public domain, and these books are free for anyone to print. Project Gutenberg is an example of such a website. Many older books, such as "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll, are not copyrighted.

  3. Make sure the site is not violating copyright

    If using a search engine to find free books, be careful not to break copyright law. Check the site's policy, and make sure it does not break the relevant laws. If you're unsure about the site's legitimacy, try reaching out to the site administrator. If this is not possible, it's probably not a good idea to proceed.
