Hello everyone…Good morning!
I was wondering if someone could recommend some safe and reputable websites to me where I can legally read books online?
Public domain reading, perhaps?
 
If anyone has some suggestions, I would love to hear them. :)
 
Thank you for your time!
I hope everyone is doing well!

I created a link to Top websites to download free e-books many years ago. I just checked and it is still active.
 
As I remember I didn’t like reading a book online. Much preferred printed. Your library may also support watching
free movies and documentaries using Kanopy – Stream Classic Cinema, Indie Film and Top Documentaries
 
Of course, if you want to purchase books to read that is what Kindle is good for. Using its apps or purchasing
a Kindle reader. I have one given to me and never use. Free Kindle Reading Apps for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC

If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s, but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition, and ignorance on the other.

A trusted and large repository is archive.org….Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free & Borrowable Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine
 
Oops forgot about including the gutenberg project….Free eBooks | Project Gutenberg
 
Thank you, things are good here and I hope things are good for you too.

Some excellent resources posted by both buddy215 and 0lds0d here  :thumbup2:
 
Just as an aside, I used to do a lot of reading online, but for years now, have switched over to audiobooks instead.
 
I get most of my titles at audible.com these days and have developed a library of over 300 titles so far, but many excellent Audio books to listen to can also be found at Librivox Free Public Domain Audiobooks archive. I just find that being able to listen rather than read (for me) to be much more convenient, especially when laying in bed with the lights out  :wink:
 
You might be surprised how many audiobooks are carried by your local library too. That’s how I initially got into them actually.

Hi, there is also more Canada Specific if looking as we have different copyright laws and books can be seen sooner,  for that as well as others not covered :
