Get eBooks for Free!


(See my other posts on Reading) – I came across the article “10 ways to download and read books online for free” today and wanted to share the suggestions it contained. I was aware of some of the suggestions, but not all. For any avid readers who want a source of lower cost reading material, these suggestions may be of value.

The suggestions:

  1. Authorama features hundreds of public domain works
  2. Project Gutenberg has more than 58,000 free eBooks
  3. LibriVox has free public domain audiobooks
  4. ManyBooks offers a selection of classics and contemporary novels
  5. BookBub is a website with books, some free to download, and some are on sale for prices as low as 99 cents [I used this site many times when I first started reading ebooks – check out my full list of ebook sources on my Books & Reading page]
  6. Goodreads community created lists including free e-books from indie and self-published authors, public domain classics, audiobooks from Librivox, books for kids, previews, samples and more
  7. Smashwords has an extensive catalog of contemporary and classic fiction, non-fiction, essays, plays and screenplays that can be filtered by price
  8. Digilibraries has a similar layout to Project Gutenberg with mostly public domain titles
  9. BookLending “matches” users who can help out with someone else’s literary needs
  10. public library apps can be a good source of ebooks
