Classic Reader Offers Classic Books for Free Online

Looking to read a classic book but your local library is already closed for the day?

Take a look at, a site dedicated to providing literary classics for free online. They host a massive catalog of over 3,469 classics and 343 authors, including everyone from Shakespeare to Jules Verne to Edgar Allen Poe.

I noticed that the site does have some minimal advertising, but it was not blatantly obtrusive in any way.

If you are interested in reading books online, feel free to check out our website for information about NetLibrary and OverDrive, our ebook and audiobook online providers. If the sound of NetLibrary peaks your interest, be sure to stop by the Library to register for a free account. All you need is a Troy Public Library card.

So go out there and get reading!

Another great site is Project Gutenberg. It is one of the oldest (and largest) collections of free, public domain e-books on the web. It does not have any advertising and allows you to download items in several different formats.
