A real find. The Internet Archive
is a non-profit library of millions of free books, movies, software, music, websites, and more.
According toits own blurb,"The Internet Archive offers over 20,000,000 freely downloadable books and texts. There is also a collection of1.3 million modern eBooksthat may be borrowed by anyone with a freearchive.org account....You may read the books online in your browser, or download them into Adobe Digital Editions, a free piece of software used for managing loans."
You can, of course, search by author, by year, by title, by collection, etc., etc. I registered and "borrowed" an ebook for 14 days for free. It was simple. Ebooks are electronic books which can be read on your computer, smartphone, tablet or Amazon Kindle.
Why download ebooks?
- You want to read in bed without the the weight of a real book or the radiation associated with Internet connections.
- You're on a bus or train. You could connect to the Internet to read or work online, but experts recommend NOT using your cell phone or tablet in a closed, moving metal vehicle with an Internet connection. Your device will have to emit a lot of radiation in order to stay connected. Email me for my "Short Guide to Reducing Cell Phone Radiation."
- You are going to miluim and have no idea whether you will have an Internet connection available.
- You are planning a vacation abroad (PC - post-corona!) and will have a free Internet connection available only in your hotel or restaurant.
