Classic Books

Read, Comment, Share, Enjoy.
The way eBooks should be

Some companies pillage the Public Domain. They take works from non-profit projects like Project Gutenberg, toss on a new cover and profit. They lock books into vendor marketplaces and expect you to believe they are doing you a favor.

WereBooks believes that the Public Domain is an important cultural treasure. It belongs, equally, to all of us. These books are yours by law. So we make them easy to search, share, read, access. Online or Offline. Print them out and mark them up. This is our shared culture.

We don't track or spy on you, and we don't sell your information. We're a non-profit dedicated to keeping books accessible to everyone. We want you to re-discover the classics and perhaps find something new and exciting. Fan art, remixes, commentaries, translations. Everyone is welcome to partcipate in our shared culture.
