Most Useful Books - Free - Forgotten Books



Introduction to Forgotten Books


WELCOME to Forgotten Books, the world's largest online library with over 1,000,000 books available on demand. This website has been designed using the very latest technologies to provide our members with many features never seen before. 

Our flagship technology Intelligent Bookshelf™ is a world leader in book recommendation and uses artificial intelligence to determine exactly the books you'd most like to read from our vast library. 

More than just books; Forgotten Books also features advanced analytical data. Every single word, page and image inside each and every one of our 1,000,000 books have been analyzed, indexed and classified. With this valuable research information, we can tell you virtually anything about anything, from the most commonly used word in fiction books published in 1765, to the book with the most images of cats in the first 20 pages. Or perhaps some more useful information, such as a list of every word in the English language in order of usage frequency.
