E-Books on the Web

Search Multiple Sources in a Single Search

Use this search engine to locate e-books available for reading from your computer. Most of the e-books you will find are literary classics that are no longer copyright protected. Therefore, you are likely to get links to books by Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, etc., but NOT books by Tom Clancy, Stephen King, John Grisham, and other modern authors. NOTE: the E-Books Multi-Searcher searches, Digital Book Index, and Google Book Search and these sites may allow only previews or snippets of a book, and not the book in its entirety.

NOTE: make sure that the Pop-Up Blocker feature of your browser is turned off before running a search in this tool.
