Some Light Reading at Century Past

Light Reading at Century Past

Some huge collections of books have been added to the Century Past Library; thousands of books organized by subject, published from about the 1970s to 2016. They are part of a collection of nearly 4 million books still in copyright that were put online by the Internet Archive. While the majority of the books I chose for Century Past Library are fairly serious non-fiction, we have some lighter reading too. This post should help you find novels and books on popular culture topics to enjoy.
