Free books

Both Alinea Online and the Alinea application for Windows can be used to read aloud PDFs, make notes on them as if a paper copy, and even import their contents into the word prediction facility (Windows application only).

Books that are free have reached the end of their Australian, UK or US copyright protected period, so can be accessed free of charge depending on where you live.


Here are just a few!

  • The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - see Alinea reading chapter one!
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell
  • Aesop’s Fables by Aesop
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
  • The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
  • The Complete Sherlock Holmes Stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
