(Investigator 195, 2020 November)

If you want to add 80 million books to your home library including books about religion, the supernatural and the paranormal, continue reading and find out how:

The free books available for downloading at the PDFDrive website far exceed in number the Project Gutenberg books regarding which Investigator #146 reported:


Do you want to add 40,000 free books to your home library without cluttering your book-shelves or your home? …

The Project Gutenberg books have since increased to 100,000 which if you looked at them all was nowhere near as challenging as reading 80 million books would be.

Whereas most of the Gutenberg books are 19th century the PDFDrive books appear recent — many published in the 21st century.

The books can be searched for under various categories, these being:

•    Academic & Education
•    Art
•    Biography
•    Business & Career
•    Children & Youth
•    Environment
•    Fiction and Literature
•    Health & Fitness
•    Lifestyle
•    Personal Growth
•    Politics & Law
•    Religion
•    Science & Research
•    Technology

You can preview books on screen and, if you like them, download them in PDF format without fuss. It's as easy as anything to do with computers or Internet ever gets.

Here's what I inspected and downloaded on my first visit:

•    Atlas of World History (2010)

•    Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt (2008)

•    Encyclopedia of Mathematics (2005)

•    Encyclopedia of Physical Science (2012)

•    The New Psychology of Success (2006)

•    Yes! 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to be Persuasive (2008)

In addition to the 14 search categories listed above you can also narrow your search via a search function. As an Investigator reader you might want books about the paranormal and skepticism. Simply type "Paranormal" into the search box and you'll find titles such as:
