The best way to find a book to read online for free is to go on Google and type in " *name of the book* pdf" or " *name of the book* filetype: pdf". Sometimes you might also need to add the author's name. "*name of the book, author's name* pdf".
For example, say you wanted to read Harry Potter. You would google "Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone pdf". One of the first things that come up should be pdf version of the book. You might need to download it or you might be able to read it online.
When it comes to book recommendations it really depends on what you like. But you say you never read a book before so it's quite hard to pick something since there's nothing to compare to.
I would say if you're trying to get into reading, it's better to start with something short because big books can be quite intimidating.
I'll give you some recommendations and you can pick what sounds interesting.
The Too-Clever Fox by Leigh Bardugo - a vrey clever short story (you'll get through it in less than an hour) with elements of deception, stereotypes, perception etc. Bardugo is a great writer. I highly recommend this.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I can't stress enough how good this book is. It's gripping, well-written, fantasitcally paced. The language is incredible and the story immaculate.
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.J. Lewis - this is a book we all heard about. The first part of the chronicles of Narnia. Pretty short, a quick read. Written very well and it's interesting to compare it to the film.
Macbeth by William Shakespear - this is one the most famous plays ever, written by arguably the best playwright in history. It's about treason, murder, guilt, the supernatural, destiny. It's great but the language might not be very accessible.
Madam CJ Walker by A'elia Bundles - very short, read it as part of black history month. It's a biography about a black woman who build an empire out of nothing. She became the first female millionaire.
Like Spilled Water by Jennie Liu - 204 pages, emerging author. Very interesting tale about modern Asia with many twists. Talks about mental health, suicide, expectations, society, sexism. It's a quick read.
Animal Farm by George Orwell - a classic. It's a commentary on the socio-political situation in Europe during the reign of Tsar Nicolas.
DNA by Dennis Kelly - a play about bringing the worst out of young people. Avoiding responsibility and absolute cruelty of the human brain.
Oscar and the Lady in Pink by Shmidtt - don't be fooled by the title, this short story will rip your heart into tiny pieces and you'll love every second of it. I recommend it to everyone.
