Books on the public domain that you should read

Wanna read some great free books? Here’s a great list for you

Not many know, but the public domain is a god-sent thing for people who love to read books but don’t have enough money to buy them all. In 1998, a law was passed in the United States which stated that all works would have copyright for 95 years instead of the previously stated term of 75 years. So in 2019, the first set of published works from 1923 by notable authors became free. So if you’re a fan of the classics, here’s a great list for you to read whenever you want!

  1. The Home and the World – Rabindranath Tagore was the first Indian to win a Nobel prize for this. It talks about India, its freedom struggle, and the partition. The story will feel real, powerful and extremely touching. So if you’re a fan of Tagore and his work, then this book should be on your reading list.
  2. Twelve Years a Slave – This book by Solomon Northup probably became even more famous after a movie was made based on it. A personal journey, the horror of slavery and a heart-breaking story, this book is one of the most important classics out there that everyone must at least give one read.
  3. Wuthering Heights – If you haven’t read this classic by Emily Bronte, then wait no more! Seen as an utterly romantic novel, this book can even be perceived as a revenge story. Revolving around the story of Heathcliff and his love, anger and revenge, Wuthering Heights will surely be a memorable read for you.
  4. Anna Karenina – Nothing screams classic than this novel. Though it is a tough read by Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina should be read by every book lover and literature student. Even Oprah loves this book, so we’re sure how much you’d love reading it as well!
