Read Classic Books using FrostWire

We all know that reading is important. Reading expands our knowledge, improves our concentration, gives us new experiences, giving us life examples for future decisions, boost imagination and creativity, exercises our brains, and a lot more. However, there are books better than others. So today we are going to give you a few tips on what free books you should read. All the following books are available under public domain and can be downloaded on FrostWire.

1. A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens

A tale of two cities

A Tale of Two Cities (1859) is a novel by Charles Dickens, set in London and Paris before and during the French Revolution. The novel depicts the plight of the French peasantry demoralized by the French aristocracy in the years leading up to the revolution, the corresponding brutality demonstrated by the revolutionaries toward the former aristocrats in the early years of the revolution, and many unflattering social parallels with life in London during the same period.

 

2. The Flowers of Evil, by Charles Baudelaire
The Flowers of Evil

Les Fleurs du mal (English: The Flowers of Evil) is a volume of French poetry by Charles Baudelaire. First published in 1857 (see 1857 in poetry), it was important in the symbolist and modernist movements. The poems deal with themes relating to decadence and eroticism.

3. Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte
Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë’s only novel. Written between October 1845 and June 1846, Wuthering Heights is one of the most powerful love stories. It follows the life of Heathcliff, a mysterious gypsy-like person, from childhood (about seven years old) to his death in his late thirties. Heathcliff rises in his adopted family and then is reduced to the status of a servant, running away when the young woman he loves decides to marry another.

 

4. The Prince, by Niccolò Machiavelli.
The Prince

 

The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. If you want to be a leader you must read this book

 

5. Micrographia: Some Physiological Descriptions of Minute Bodies Made by Magnifying Glasses with Observations and Inquiries Thereupon, by Robert Hooke
Micrographia

According to Discover Magazine, “A revelation in its time, Micrographia exposed the previously hidden microscopic world. Hooke, an early developer of the compound microscope, used his device to peer at the eyes of flies, the stinger on a bee, hairs, bristles, sand particles, seeds, and more, noting every detail with both words and masterful illustrations. The original book is a hefty three pounds, so the digital versions now available are more convenient, but there is something to be said for flipping through a printed copy and discovering, like a hidden treasure, each drawing in its beautiful intricacy”

Music of the Week #1

On FrostClick we publish reviews of new music bands that share their music for free. Since 2007 FrostWire brings you the best free music that you need to listen to. And now, each week we are going to promote here the new music reviews that are on FrostClick.

Anna Jordan

Anna Jordan

  1. Nude: Naturalness EP
    Naturalness is a short but sweet affair that sounds eerily like the ironically-named band Kill Paris‘ latest release.
  2. O: Be Sides – Mostla Tape
    One of underground label La Souterraine‘s acts, O (short for Olivier Marguerit), just released a full-length B-sides collection, “Be Sides – Mostla Tape,” which round out some of the most interesting arrangements and production for a French neophyte [at least for me].
  3. Anna Jordan: Dust EP
    Anna Jordan‘s debut EP, Dust, is like a shiny new toy that fills that craving for unique flavor. An alum from Newpark Music School, Anna is no stranger to the literature of sound. She studied jazz piano under the tutelage of Phil Ware, and has taken great inspiration from the aesthetics of great pianists such as Sonny Clark and Thelonius Monk.

Learning Through FrostWire

In this century, learning new stuff is easy thanks to technology. Right now, you can read the oldest books and watch video courses totally free. Here on FrostWire we always support free learning and we love to share Creative Commons content.

So if you want to start learning through FrostWire, the first thing you need to do is download and install FrostWire for desktop or Android. Then you can download millions of free (licensed under public domain and creative commons) books, movies, software, music, indexed by Archive.org.

FrostWire searches for content on Archive.org so you can download easily all their files.

For example, you can read all Shakespeare’s plays or the notes and texts of Sir Isaac Newton. Also if you want to write about old movies, you can watch for free Classic Films like Chaplin’s movies.

If you want to learn at the same level as in the most important universities in the United States, you can watch free open courses from MIT. These courses are licensed under Creative Commons, so you can download them with FrostWire and have them in your tablet or computer.

Also, if you want to share your content, you can share it through FrostWire. For example, if you are a teacher and you want others to have your course materials, or you love teaching and you want to share your knowledge, it’s the time to create a torrent file and share it with FrostWire. If you do that, tell us and we also can share your content on our site FrostClick.com

Archive.org as a new search engine in FrostWire puts millions of free legal files in your hands.

We’re currently polishing our next release of FrostWire for Android 1.0.6.

Our last release was back in November 2012, since then we’ve received crash reports and lots of complaints that have helped us make the next FrostWire for Android much more robust and compatible for the +2,600 different supported Android devices that run FrostWire on hundreds of thousands of mobile devices every day.

We’ve taken this time to make the search experience considerably faster and we’ve finally been able to integrate our search with another great source of legally free available content, Archive.org.

Archive.org is a non profit organization that crawls and indexes the web’s free content and as of the moment of this writing by having FrostWire connect to its search api you will be able to search through an astonishing number of free and legal works, here’s how they break them down on their home page today:

1,181,452 movies
114,118 live concerts
1,567,041 audio recordings
4,386,872 texts

that’s over 7,246,483 works most of which are tagged with Public Domain and Creative Commons licenses that you’ll be able to download and share with FrostWire.

Most of this content is under the Public Domain and also under Creative Commons licenses.
If FrostWire can detect the license on the content it yields on search results you will see it on screen.

And every year that passes, more works automatically fall into the public domain so you will be able to access more and more information for free absolutely legally, literally from the palm of your hand via FrostWire. We think this goes in line with our mission, and once this update is released the world will be a little better place to be in since all of you will be empowered with free digital works and culture.

Other than that we’ve fixed many crashes, freezes, lowered cpu and memory consumption (which will make your battery last more), we’ve done upgrades on almost all of the application icons, fixed issues for older phones that didn’t have SD cards the way new phones do now, bugs on the audio player and so much more.

Archive.org as a search engine, and a revamp of the search experience is also being added to FrostWire for Desktop so stay tuned for our next desktop release as well (5.5.6)

Fhernando’s Last Days of Disco featured on FrostWire

Download Free Album

Intent on recreating an aesthetic pioneered by the 80s, Mexico-based musician Fhernando brings back the funk in Last Days of Disco.

The young Mexican DJ is not a stranger to the music scene. Since his teenage years, Fhernando or Fernando Ramires Rios has been composing music and has already released several EPs and singles. His most recent album, Sweet Addiction produced a lot of buzz on music websites.

Featuring 12 tracks of musical bliss, Last Days of Disco will transport you into an era of upbeat yet soothing melodies.

Funkylicious opens with steady dance beats mixed with jazzy horns. This radio-polished track will give that right dose of party high.

Fluttering with playful keys, title track Last Days of Disco will surely spread some good vibes. Ride My Tempo, on the other hand, features a plethora of deep drum tones and trumpet sounds.

Tracks like Anthony Jones, Kiss Me Harder, and Crying At The Discoteque feature big-hearted party anthems with some sonic surprises.

A personal favourite, (I Need Ya) L.O.V.E is that kind of track that boosts your mind and energy. It’s the perfect backdrop while working as it features subtle yet upbeat instrumentation.

Fhernando seals up the collection with Pasadena Nights, a disco track with an electro flair. I love how each the music slowly builds into a jungle of harmonized melodies.

For those who are looking for a steady upbeat vibe, Last Days of Disco is the perfect album for you. Fhernando has successfully created something that does not only revive a glowing era of music, but also recreates it in a way where it becomes an easy listenable whole.
