Free eBooks

Project Gutenberg – http://www.gutenberg.org/ – This site offers free eBooks ranging from Aesop’s fables to Paradise Lost to clip art printing pressdictionaries. From what I understand originally most of the eBooks are older, the copyright is past, and or the original author(s) are no longer living and as a result the eBooks could be freely distributed. Undoubtedly, Project Gutenberg is named after Johannes Gutenberg (1395-1468) the inventor of movable type printing. The Gutenberg Bible was the first book printed on the press and was an edition of the Latin Vulgate. Teachers, students, parents and many others could definitely use the site and many of the book illustrations look very clear and of high quality.

You could also search on Twitter and even Amazon and of course Google for free eBooks. Free eBook sources I found on Twitter include:

  • Zilch Ebooks @ZilchEbooks – tweets a free Kindle book daily, http://www.Facebook.com/ZilchEbooks and or www.ZilchEbooks.com
  • TweetinBooks @TweetinURBook – reviews, books, and bargains
  • eChristianFiction @eChristFiction – free downloads, new releases and more
  • Free eBook Library @Share_eBook – free eBook downloads www.ebook900.com
  • Freebooksfound @freebooksfound

A Google search for free eBooks brought up some good sites such as

  • www.free-eBooks.net – includes ‘Libros en Español’ and ‘Livros em Português’ and genres ranging from textbooks to web designBook and Lamp Clip Art to mystery.  They have a free version and paid options.
  • http://www.onlinefreeebooks.net/ – this site as a disclaimer that they sort of search other sites with the free information and of course do not assume liability. Looks like they have found eBooks in nearly every category but focus mainly on programming and technology eBooks
  • http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=2245146011 – this page mentions the following resources:
    • Archive.org – non-profit focusing on historical collections
    • Openlibrary.org – goal to put a page on the web for every book ever published
    • Gutenberg.org – mentioned above, I like this site
    • Manybooks.net
    • Kindle Store – Free Popular Classics (http://www.amazon.com/s/?node=2245146011)
  • Also, bookstore sites like barnesandnoble.com and kobobooks.com came up with free eBooks they offer
