This is a list of books available under a Creative Commons license.

By "book" we generally mean works over 35,000 words that are or have been commercially available in hardcopy and have an ISBN. We've expanded the definition in two added sections below, however, to include the most popular books published through do-it-yourself press Lulu, and "books" published on websites of established organizations or notable blogs.

This is just a start and is woefully incomplete. Please add missing titles and fill in missing information.
