If you have an iOS device or work with students who have iPads in their hands, you’ll want to check out this list of totally free classic books! There’s no catch – classic books are part of the public domain and you can download them for free on your iPad or iPhone. The iBookstore is full of classics including plenty of my favorites. I’ve compiled a list of 19 classic books that are totally free and ready to download.

Do you like reading on iPads?
Reading on an iPad is a very different experience than turning the page or scribbling in a margin. It took me awhile to get comfortable reading on a digital device, and I still switch back and forth from paperback to tablet. One reason I love reading iBooks on an iPad is how easy it is to highlight, color code and take notes as you move through a chapter. All of your notes are organized and can easily be shared with another person or saved for your own review. This is especially helpful if students are preparing for a book club meeting or literature circle.
