Thankfully, this website is not the only source of free e-books. Many libraries allow you to register for a library card online, so you can start borrowing e-books right away. You might have to wait for the most popular releases, but you can place a hold on the book, which will then be checked out automatically once it becomes available. Google Books has a massive catalog, and you can adjust the search settings to show only free e-books. Project Gutenberg also has thousands of free books that can be read on a computer or sent directly to your e-reader.
But while reading is a solitary activity, we still love to talk about books. Below are a few places where readers and writers can connect online while we’re all confined to our homes. Feel free to email Karen with your suggestions!
Connect with Authors:
Virtual Noir at the Bar book readings around the world (Google to find the one that interests you!)
Every Tuesday at 2 PM Candace Fleming reads with other authors via Instagram Live for #TrueStuffTuesday
Connect with Readers:
Monthly Book Club – We started a book club because we love books and bookish things. We are basically friends who love to read. We are a laid back group and we are so excited to have you join our family!
Facebook Book Club – As a few of us are increasingly relying on our friends for book recommendations, we thought we’d set up a Book Club to visit. Share your favourite reads and give a little review if you feel so inclined.
Book Club – Starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen
Reese’s Book Club – Every month, Reese picks one book she loves with a woman at the center of the story and shares it with the group.
