One mut not forget e-books in the flurry of excitement over discovering audiobooks.

I’ve commented in an earlier post about e-books and dead tree versions and so on, so won’t comment here. This post is to list the sources of FREE e-books (legal, not stolen) which I have come across in my travels.

This list is not exhaustive and it does NOT contain “get rich quick” books of any kind.

Additions are welcome via the comments section, if you know of other sources, but be warned, all URLs will be checked and if found to be of the other kind (“get rich quick”) of ebook, they will be deleted with no discussion.

Without further ado:

The Gutenberg Project
Baen Free Library
Fictionwise (requires free subscription)
University of Pennsylvania Online Books
Blackmask Online

You’ll find that Manybooks, Gutenberg and Blackmask have books which are absolute classics. Don’t go looking for any new titles in these places, you won’t find them. Having said that, however, Fictionwise is a great source of freebies including snippets of new releases from new authors as well as full version ebooks, and the prices for their books for sale in most cases is quite reasonable. UPenn seems to have a predominance of academic texts but this too can be useful.

Have fun!

    If you want to leave links to ebooks, make sure they are freeware and that there are no requirements to enable scripting (a bloody dangerous pastime). I will not tolerate people slipping in their own advertising which borders on spam.

    Thanks for your co-operation.
