GuteBooks offers over 700,000 free classic e-books from authors ranging from Charles Dickens to H. G. Wells. Covering every genre of literature, GuteBooks offers free works of literature, science, drama, and history entirely free.

GuteBooks includes books from various sources, including Project Gutenberg, Google, and OpenLibrary.org. These works are in the public domain, and are totally free. That means that you won't find this year's new releases, but you will find the best literature of past years. Indeed, while many of the titles are the same ones you would find on a Kindle or a Nook, they are not just cheap, but entirely free.

Gutebooks allows you to view eBooks in two ways - by viewing the original pages of the scanned books, or by viewing resizable text scaled for your screen. Choose whichever method is best for you from the options menu.

This is an excellent app, with lots of possibilities for improvement. The name is somewhat misleading, since most of its books seem to be from sources other than Project Gutenberg - in particular the excellent and undervalued Internet Text Archive. Congratulations to the developer for making it accessible.

Nice ad Nothing but trouble. Too much of a hassle. Such a shame, I love old books. I would much rather read old stories than the new junk they write about today. Please clean up your act.

Seema Wadhwani

Rich Source of Rare books.

Savannah King Norton

Good design but buggy The idea is an excellent one but the controls are terribly buggy.

Simbarashe Dzinamarira

Nice app Very nice app. However, I came across a book with some pages upside down "The neurotic constitution by Alfred Adler". The text conversion is then gibberish for those pages.

Patricia Boone

Good idea!!! This app doesn't stay on one page unless it is in small print...

Victoria Werberg

Freezes up when opening a book.

Danielle Brown

Great app! This is a really cool app! There are tons of books on lots of topics/in different genres. The search function is much faster to use than scrolling the list a to z.

One Thousand downloads And only 40 reviews? I smell a rat here... And even then only 20 gave five stars and 10 people gave 4 stars

I un installed this app reading is harder here. the text option's transitions aren't very pretty. could use some features like making use of the volume keys to turn pages. difficult interface when your short on patience and just want to read a book. not a very good app. would not recommend

What happened??! I truly love this app normally. The books used to be available in readable, crisp eBooks; however, whatever happened in the last week distorted them. There are random symbols and sentence breaks throughout each page/book. I have already emailed the support team. Hopefully, this can be resolved quickly. Not useful if a can't read the books.

Good selection, some books mistitled Some of the books are listed under the wrong title or book cover picture. There are also a few books less than 20 years old, so it's obvious they're not all coming from Gutenberg Project. Good selection overall.

Brian Cummings

Choppy page flips, needs external Reader link I am consistently Maddened by this app, which promises to give one access to the entire library on Gutenberg ebooks, which it does do, but the reader portion is very choppy and tends to either flip to the same page multiple times or duplicate paragraphs indefinitely. I would love to see a function to open in registered e-reader apps instead of the on board one.

A great resource Pity it can appear quirky and difficult to use. More work required to become user friendly.

Rebecca Miller

Finally, at last. Thank you! This app allows you to download the images of books which are written in archaic forms of the English language. Most providers try to OCR the text, thus butchering the original text, substituting words which turn the books into gibberish. If you want to read books written before 1800, and want to see the images, tables, Roman numbers, Greek symbols or ancient scripts, this is absolutely the best app avaliable.

Edward Sorrels

Needs work Cannot see any selected books text. No comprehensible help is vible...if it is there, it is cleverly concealed

Lefty Wright

One problem When i click a search tab, the keyboard gets in the way of the list and when i close the keyboard the list closes

Dawn Shaw

Love this so far. Very pleased with the wide selection available.

Jamiee Carroll

Broken Page flipping is broken and you have to scroll down like with a web page.

Orestes Kyriakos Poulakis

Text mode is a bit messy I tried to read “The war of the worlds”, I didn't want to read the scanned pages, so I switched to text mode. Text mode was a mess, same paragraphs repeatedly appeared again and again and the whole display of the text was not pleasant, but I can leave with that. The messy paragraph problem though is not that easy to bypass, I cannot see why, I checked project Gutenberg and it has the book available in plain text, kindle, epud, and html that seem to be fine. If that problem is fixed this would be a 5* app

Paresh Gohil

This app is very beautiful

Terrible Tie-in Downloaded this as a tie-in with LibriVox (LibriVox has a button to download the ebook via Gutebooks) . THE BAD: ▪Author (H. Beam Piper) on LV not available on GB. ▪Categories are WAY too many, too specific, and too cluttered (even nesting into subcategories would help). ▪Reverse search from GB->LV gives fuzzy result . ▪No night mode or fonts change settings. THE GOOD: ▪Ability to choose edition. ▪Ability to view as text or pictures (scan). Liking other apps better.

No way you can reed a book with this Displays 1/4 of a page at a time. Takes 30 seconds to move to the next quarter of a page and has no useful means of finding a page - how is anyone ever going to read an entire book with more than 5 pages with this app???

jal bal

Nice Its a great app and the library contains many great books. I gave it 4 stars because it can't open ebooks that you have downloaded from other sources.

Fooblecakez o3o

Barely any books I downloaded this app, ands I was very happy to search my book, but they don't have it! This app doesn't have many books

mome super

Now thats what i call a library ???? great job and thanks finally got those novels i will read what i still have not ^_^

So far, so good. Don't know if there's been some updates, or if it's my new phone, but it's working much better than last time I tried it. I especially like the option of original pages or text. But, until more of the catalogue is available, I'll stick to downloading to google play books.

Robert Persson

All I wanted to do was to read Dracula on my phone. There are several versions of this at Gutenberg, but this app couldn't see any of them. Instead it supplied a version from another collection, but without the ability to reflow the text to make it readable on my phone. Eventually I gave up.

adarsh gupta

Sooo bad app never try to download it When I open a book in these it is not working

Adam Lathrop

Could be better Needs the ability to make pages fit the whole screen, should take notes from Adobe pdf viewer.

Evan Gerling

Great on phone! Works on Android phone but not on Android tablet!

JetBlast Joe

Turning each page is a challenge In this app, you play the role of a one armed arthritic person who wants to read a book, but your reading glasses keep sliding down your nose and the pages are too slick for you to turn with one finger. Frustrating.

James Reuter

There's a whole universe waiting It's OK to try something different at this price.

Ellie De la Cruz

Won't show up properly:(

Dennis Conner

Gutenberg The store of vast knowledge, adventures and information contained in this work is greatly appreciated.

Bryan Bess

Very good

John Swanson

Works well!

Andy Critic

A great resource Pity it can appear quirky and difficult to use. More work required to become user friendly. This must be one of the least stable apps I have ever used in my hudl2. I have experienced loss of page and locking up more times than I care to remember.

Better then the audio app ☺, ? that's what I thought at first ,. Okht! No adds on the way, a great collection,.. contains a lot of my favorite books, still hope you'd expand the collection, l would enjoy reading the english version of "Hansen's children " .. but it is a nightmare when you're offline ,.. l need some space for now and hope that you'll make it much better ... till that time.

Jared Foster

Terrible Reading You can't scroll without it jumping to the next page, you can't zoom in without it freaking out and flashing, you can't rotate without it going to the beginning. You just can't read on this reading app.

Nicholas Bergdorf

Sucks!!!! There are no star wars books what is the point pig having an ebook app of there are no James Luceno books!!

Alex Ian

Wow fail. Nice look but the first book I searched for (the cover said Quantico by Greg Bear) loaded some 1930s pdf pages. Search fail. Load fail. Right out of the gate.

Incomplete, incomprehensible This app leaves out 90% of the books on Project Gutenberg's site. Don't bother downloading it. The user interface is nighwell useless and it doesn't put the books where other apps can find them.

CountryGirl19813

Love it but... It would be so much better if you could make night mode so it doesn't hurt your eyes staring at a bright screen trying to read. Other than that it's wonderful.

Finley Hawtin

Yeah.. It has NO children's books apart from a few... ??

Curt Carpenter

Gutebooks Great app and content.

Now thats what i call a library ???? great job and thanks finally got those novels i will read what i still have not ^_^
