In celebration of Banned Books Week, TIME magazine’s Moneyland blog ran a useful post yesterday that pointed readers toward a number of the better-known websites where free e-books live.
But aside from simply mentioning the obvious sites (Project Gutenberg; the Internet Archive), the post also mentions a frugal-living blog called MoneyTalksNews.com, which has “helpfully put together a list of where you can track down [free] e-book versions of [19 of the best-known] banned books.” Click here to see the list, which includes George Orwell’s 1984, Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, and Nabokov’s Lolita.
And don’t forget: Banned Books Week is currently underway (it ends this Saturday, October 6); click here to see if there are any BBW-affiliated events going on in your city.
