Free Books Online

The Online Books Page is a web site that indexes and links to thousands of texts that are free and available on the internet. Hosted by the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, Online Books, allows you to search and browse over 25,000 titles. From Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, there is something here for everyone.

In honor of Banned Books Week, take a look at The Online Book Page’s special exhibit of books that have been the object of censorship or censorship attempts. This page provides a short essay on censorship as well as links to previously censored works such as Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason.
