Lists about Books

Today starts a new meme over at the Young Ladies Christian Fellowship. Check out their blog to see lots of book-related posts this month. I participated a couple of weeks ago in their Snapshots of Favorite Books.

This week they have a new link-up for Lists about Books. I'm joining up and my post is below...

March of Books 2011 at ylcf.org

For my entry, I have 3 different types of things I'd like to share.

#1. Online Book Lists
These lists are great, especially if you're looking for books that belong in a particular grade-level, or for family reading.

1000 Good Books List (This huge, grade-by-grade book list was compiled by a group of homeschooling mothers.)

More than Books (On this page you’ll find wonderful Christian book lists for all ages: the little ones, 8 years & older, 12 years & older, and high school.)

Glencoe Literature Study Guides (Great study guides that go with several popular books.)

Sonlight Recommended Books (Select a grade/age level, and then read through the "Individual Items" for book titles.)


#2. Book Blogs
Some of my favorite blogs pertain to the subject of books--not surprisingly. Below are a few of them. I'm sure these girls would love it if you stopped by their blogs!

Just a Trifle

Castles, Quills, and Cameras

Blogful of Books

Christ is Write

Before My Penn Has Gleaned

My Camera and I

Literary Pursuits

Novel Pretender

Ashen Skye Life

Rose's Daring Adventure

The Book Blog

The Ladies Library

Whisperings of the Pen

The Parchment Girl


#3. Download Free E-books
Searching for e-books is a great method to access old classics. I've found that if you can't find the e-book you're looking for on a website, it's good to check around on other sites.

Open Library

Read Print

Planet eBook

Globusz

The Online Books Page

Classic Authors

The Literature Network

Wikisource

Free Kindle E-books

Smashwords

Children's Literature Project

Many Books

Project Gutenberg

Literature Post

Do you have any favorite book lists, blogs, or other places to get free e-books? Please feel free to share your thoughts!

  1. Another great site is booksshouldbefree.com. You can find tons of classics on there, but they are all audio books. Great for car trips!

    Maybe you'll want to get a twitter button to your site. Just bookmarked this blog, but I must make this manually. Just my 2 cents.
