  • Project Gutenberg – Library of over 60k free eBooks
    Such a remarkable and useful project. I had to look this up in Wikipedia; it was started in 1971 (!) by Michael S. Hart. They've never done much for aesthetics or curation. I like as an alternative. It's mostly Gutenberg sources (with credit) but the site and epub downloads are nicely designed. Although they've gotten pretty spammy. If Sci-Hub is more your speed then Z-Library has 10 million... - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
    The versions on gutenberg or should be unabridged. I'm not entirely sure which version the amazon link in OP is though. It should be something like 1400 pages depending on formatting. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Open libraries

    A set of short stories that you might like will take you back even farther. Mystery Stories of Violet Strange by Anna Katherine Green follow a young debutant of the upper crust in New York who works within her own social set to unravel mysteries. Some have to do with death; (notice I said death-not murder); but many are other types of puzzles for her to unwind; all of which help unfortunate people in difficult... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Looking for a book to learn english
    Hi there! It's great to see young language learners interested in reading. English is my second language, too, and I also started reading English books when I was around your age.

  • Ebook stores in New Zealand
    To answer your "where to buy Kindle books" question: Probably not typical for r/nz but we just love our public domain books! I'm always on the lookout for publication dates up to 1924 (a little more complicated than that but a good rule of thumb). Other than the most obscure, most are available online to download as mobi files from various sites like and From there you email them to... - Source: Reddit / about 2 years ago
