    "Not all the books I was looking for are here (but understandable since those I was looking for are newly released) LOL. Anyways, the reason why I download PDF books here is that it doesnt require me to sign up as well soo yeah"

    "Although some titles are not readily available because they are on the waitlist, most of the ebooks are free to download and don't require any details or login which is great because I can't be bothered to sign up for another site I'm only going to use for only a few times"

    "This is where i download most of the books i am looking for. but i gotta be honest there are times that the book i am looking isnt available here. Aside from that this still remains my go-to place to download books for free. "

    "Out of all the places I've read books for free, the open library has the HUGEST collection of books on one site. This makes it simple to search for my old favorite books and discover new ones."

    "I think it's best if you search the book with the title and not the author but maube im just not good at looking for things. so glad the handmaid's tale is here!"

    "I didn't want to buy a Kindle just to read E-books but I still wanted to have an easy accessible way to read all the books I've been dying to start on. This website is the perfect solution! Because I can just use my laptop, I don't need any special gadgets or apps. I LOVE this archive!"

    "Open Library is an interesting site. It is kind of like a library online, but you can't download some of the books. It is definitely not one of the best sites out there for downloading books. I would search somewhere else for a better site that offers a larger variety and the ability to download more. I wasn't too impressed with it when I used it."

    "There was a time not so long ago, where authors and publishers would upload books to the Internet and you could download those books for free...IF you could find them! Thanks to the Internet Archives, those old books were located and made easily available to anyone looking for a title or an author. Now, Internet Archives has corralled all those books into a lending library. I see many titles as I skim through what is available, but I have yet to run into a text book. On the other hand, there are plenty of titles that people used to read for pleasure and information that are now required reading for classes, and those books may be available here for free."
