Our Self-Serving Editorial

         Hoorah! We've come of age! We're 21 years old. The Freelook Bookstore first went online in the year of the Millennium. During these years it has grown (with no paid advertisng support) to the point where, for many years, we gave away between 4,000 and 5,000 books each year. And that doesn't even count the viewers who read the articles and poems and jokes and movie reviews in the E-Zine or those who enjoyed our handful of free online books. We have thousands of happy readers every year. And all for free. That makes us feel so good.

All Free

         And then last year . . .
         (Drum roll, please)
         Between January 1, 2020 and January 1, 2021, a total of 17,979 books were downloaded from Freelookbookstore, free of charge. Wow! That makes us SO HAPPY. Thank you, readers. Now, please have some more.

         We have nothing to sell. Honest. Our free bookstore offers you a whole slew of good Classic books in a clear, accessible, digital format. Download them to your computer and they're all yours. The copyright on the books covers our proprietary format, but you own the words; you own the heart of the book. Do you want to carry around some of the great thoughts of Marcus Aurelius in your wallet? Print them. They're yours. Specially like the way Mr. Rochester proposes to Jane Eyre? Save it to disk and keep a copy under your pillow. Prop yourself up on pillows and enjoy the exploits of the original Tom Swift!. Online right now. No charge.

         In addition, in our E-Zine we have some pretty-good jokes, interesting trivia, some articles and short stories, a verse or two to send to your sweetie on Valentine's Day, hundreds and hundreds of interesting movie reviews, and a handful of newer digital books to read online.

         The E-Zine, however, is all under copyright. All the modern novels, and the E-Zine's stories and articles are protected by copyright from outside use: Again that goes for the short stories, the online novels, the limericks, poems, film reviews, the format and (certainly) the artwork. Want to quote the Flick Chick? Always credit as the source, and it's polite to ask us first.

         Over the years, we've had numerous downloads of our classics every month. If you're interested to know, our popular e-books are by classic authors you've really heard of. For example, Jane Austin, Edgar Allen Poe, Jack London, and Mark Twain are popular authors. Confucious, the Tao, and Machiavelli get a lot of downloads, too.

Some of our "Best Sellers" are:

  • Jack London's Call of the Wild (Gave away 134 copies this year)
  • Rudyard Kipling's Kim
    (Gave away 130 copies)
  • Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland
    (131 copies)
  • Machiavelli's The Prince
    (Quite a few of these)
  • Victor Appleton's books about the original Tom Swift
    (Lots and lots of these!)
  • Plato's The Death of Socrates
  • Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book
  • Robert LewisStevenson's Kidnapped
