It’s a great time to dive into those books you’ve always wanted to read but haven’t had the time for. Open Library is an online library that began in November 2007 and has been inhaling catalog records from some of the biggest libraries in the world ever since. They are offering free access so you can use this time to feed your brain.

They have well over 20 million edition records online, provide access to 1.7 million scanned versions of books, and link to external sources like WorldCat and Amazon when they can. Happy reading!
