Some of you have requested this; we’ve been wanting it for a long time. Now anyone can read books in the Unbound Reader without having an account – there’s no requirement to log in. This is great because we believe in open access to public domain books.

For now, you’ll still need an account to post notes or chat with other users, but your privacy-prone friends are now free to browse all the public annotations in our catalog and read to their heart’s content, account-free. Tell the world!
