Translating two words.

Could someone spell the words "book" and "free" in Latin please?
Also, what would these become if they were to stand alone in a title?

From the replies, i am getting:

līber (unencumbered)
liber (both book and unencumbered)
libre (not even the latin word/irrelevant? could someone clear this one up too in case i misread?)

edit: free as in unencumbered
