Read Books For Free 

Rare, Children’s, Mystery, Cookbooks and Other Books  


Song Parody

To the tune of the Armour Hot Dog Song.  

Free books
Read your free books?  
What kind of kids love to read free books?  
Big kids (you!), lit-tle kids, kids who climb on your lap, 
Short kids, tall kids, even kids who like to rap love free books.  
Arm loads of FREE BOOKS
The kinda books kids love to read!




Library Book Quote:
Stranger, pause and look
From the dust of ages
Lift this little book,
Turn the tattered pages,
Read me, do not let me die!
Search the fading letters finding
Steadfast in the broken binding
All that once was I!
-Edna St. Vincent Millay











Remember when you were a kid and wanted your future job as an adult to be getting paid to watch tv or movies or read books.  Some of us as adults are still wishing.  Well these jobs are rare, rare, rare.  BUT, I do have the next best thing.  Read books for free.  Yes, I said read books for free.  What kind of books, do you ask?…..Waiting for you to ask…. Oh, thank you!  You favorite kind, whether it be, romance, mystery, biography, gardening, cookbook, out of print books, etc.   

How???? Your local library has a service called Interlibrary Loan.  

With this free service, I have been able to read very rare books.  No cost to me!!! Plus I can read a book then decide if I may want to add to my collection. Never spend money on a book that turned out to be not what expected.



Library Book Quote:

Books have a way of
finding their way into
our lives, usually,
right when we need
them the most.

-Christian Marotti




FREE BOOKS:

Here are terms and info from my local library:

My library has access to 7,000 libraries to borrow from.  Yes!!!  I have access to books from 7,000 libraries. AMAZING.

I can make a request for a book at my library or while sitting at home in my pajamas.  I just  go to my library’s website and follow the easy instructions.

All I need is a valid library card and have no overdue books.  Oops! I will return that book!

I can request up to five books per week.  I can read one book a week, so I'm good.

New books are available after three months of publication.  No biggie, who isn’t behind in their reading.  Plus there are hordes of books now available to me that I had no access to before. Books that I didn’t even know existed.

Loan period is for six weeks.  Thank you as I am a slow reader.

If the book costs less than $15.00, my library may just choose to buy the book and add it to their collection for all. How groovy is that?

***Check your library terms out as they may differ*****

Reading Quote:

The more you read,
the more things you
will know.  The
more that you learn,
the more places
you'll go.

-Dr. Seuss

  23. I totally agree with this quote, 'Books have a way of
    finding their way into
    our lives, usually,
    right when we need
    them the most.'

    I read Shiva trilogy when I needed the positive motivation and a new approach towards spirituality :)

  24. I love some book quotes! I'm a total book nerd. I saw this one quote on a buzzfeed list of the sort that said "It is likely I will die next to a pile of things I was meaning to read" by Lemony Snicket, that I can totally relate to because I get books faster than I can read them. And I read really fast!

  37. Haha! I thought you were going to share some type of app or website, so it's funny that you were talking about the library. It is sad that fewer kids are being brought up to love the library. I practically lived in one growing up. In fact, I worked in one in high school. Libraries and bookstores are fun for me.

  44. So true. I took reading for granted until I met my stepson. His brain was very under developed and it corresponded to the level of books he was reading. It is such a challenge to get him reading. I love to read but my 1 yr old has a problem with it. =) Blessings to you, Paula.
