‘1984’ Tops Best Seller List, but You Can Get the eBook and AudioBook for Free!

For no specific reason that I can think of, George Orwell’s 1984 is topping best seller lists. Probably just a bunch people who enjoy dystopian literature randomly decided to buy it all around the same time. No reason. Certainly couldn’t have anything to do with the news or current events. Perish the thought.

For any folks interested in reading this novel about war and propaganda, you can buy it, but it’s also available for free as a PDF and as an Audiobook on Archive.org.
