Can I read books on Goodreads?
https://help.goodreads.com/s/article...-1553870942680
No, you can't. If you're looking for a great reading experience that offers thousands of free ebooks, we recommend the Kindle app, available for free from the Google Play store for Android users or from the App Store for iOS:. If you're looking to discover a great book, discuss your favorite books, or get in touch with your favorite author, Goodreads is the place to be!

Ah OK, I may have mistaken it for some other similar sites that are full of bootleg material.

I am a bit in the middle - where the author makes nothing from the publication (eg technical papers) I think it is heinous that we're charged high amounts eg US$50 for a paper.

On the other hand, where the author is paid for their work, bootlegging it will simply, over time, prevent similar works being published.

And then sometimes, when the publication is long out of print and impossible to find, a free copy on the web is a godsend.

Similar to the tension between anonymity and authentication.
