Change the World by Reading

learning is activism

The list of books below is quite long. However, I’m using this page as a “bookmark” for myself. To avoid buying books and to avoid using Amazon, I took the books listed on my Amazon Wishlist  and searched for them on Archive.Org. And those I found on Archive are listed below. Considering that the books are provided free of charge, it is quite a savings. My Kobo died and instead of buying a new one, I invested in a tablet that costs basically the same so I can easily read the books listed below.
