Where to get Paid and Free Ebooks
I discussed ebook readers in a previous post, and I would like to expand on where to get or download digital books.
You can purchase ebooks in sites such as Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon books, and once paid, the digital books will be sent to you.
However, there are many sites that offer free ebooks in various ebook formats that you can download from (these are actually what got me started on ebooks).
The top site is Project Gutenberg, which stores over 40,000 books that have become part of the public domain.
I also frequent Manybooks.net. Like Project Gutenberg, it provides public domain books as well as new authors who wish to distribute their books for free.
If you have a Kindle or Kindle app in your phone or tablet, you can download free Kindle books as well. Sites such as Hundred Zeros and One Hundred Free Books show an updated list of Kindle ebooks that you can download for free and later on read in your Kindle or Kindle app.
