The books below were found at the Open Syllabus website. Open Syllabus has collected lists of books & other readings assigned in over 6 million classes at 4,700 colleges in the U.S. and many other countries. I’ve used the Open Syllabus “Galaxy” visualization to create the list below of books used in many college “Basic Skills” courses, including only those books available free online at the Internet Archive.
