Redd Kaiman (reddkaiman) | 1 comments Hi guys,


Does anybody know of any good public domain works (novels from the 1800s) out there?

I'm almost done with Through the Looking Glass, so I wanted to get a list ready.

Thanks,

Redd Kaiman

Taylor @Sam

Public domain means that there is no copyright. Many works of classic literature are public domain because they're so old.

Taylor @Redd

Google Books would be an excellent resource. Basically any classic literature you can find a free e-book of would be public domain.

Claire Cross (clairecross) | 39 comments Public Domain and free books on Kindle are the only way to fly! With over 800 books downloaded, I’ve only paid for a handful. In the search window of your e-reader, type in “public domain” and you’ll get quick results. I also check the Top Free section in the Kindle store daily.

Another trick is to search by author. While not every title will be free, there are lots of classic titles offered from authors such as Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, the Bronte Sisters, Zane Grey, Henry James, Bram Stoker, Shakespeare and many more… all for free or dirt cheap!

Please see the attached links that explain in detail how to access public domain books. Also, check out Open Library and Project Gutenberg.

Sorry this isn’t the book list for which you asked, but hopefully, you’ll find titles you’ll enjoy!

Happy Reading!
