How to Get All Kinds of Free eBooks

By Mary Hunt on 06/18/14 

A recent column on where to find free books for today’s popular digital 
readers brought a flood of responses, a few questions and a bit of a 
scolding. It seems I overlooked public libraries as a potential source 
of free ebook downloads. Given the popularity of the subject, I thought 
it would be wise to revisit the.
By way of review, ebooks, which you download to read on any number of 
digital readers outfitted with specific software–a computer, iPad, 
Android, iPhone or other smartphone–are all the rage. Remember: You 
don’t need a Kindle device, Nook reader or smartphone to download 
ebooks created for those readers. The software is free to download to 
your computer. And if you know where to look, you can get an endless 
supply of ebooks absolutely free, as well.
Libraries. Check with our local library to see if they offer ebook 
checkouts. As long as you are a library card holder, you may be able to 
login from home and download ebooks for free. The way it works in most 
cases is that you check out or put ebooks on reserve, as the number of 
copies available are limited, and for a specific number of days.
Project Gutenberg. A non-profit organization Project Gutenberg 
offers 36,000 public-domain titles for free.
Amazon. Every month Amazon 
offers free downloads of selected titles for Kindle. Simple type “free 
Kindle books” into the search bar to see the current offering of free 
Kindle books.
Barnes and Noble. Barnes and Noble 
offers free books for for its Nook reader. From it’s home page, type 
“free Nook books” into the search bar and prepare to be amazed!
OpenCulture. Enjoy amazing free access to 150 classics in eBook format 
by authors like Jane Austen, Agatha Christie and Charles Dickens at 
Smashwords. This destination offers free ebooks from independent 
authors and publishers. There are almost 200,000 titles in the catalog. 
To quickly get to the list of free ebooks, simply use the combination 
of three top filter bars. For instance, from those three menus, select: 
bestsellers – that are free – that are 50k words or longer 
InternetArchive. This is a non-profit digital library whose mission is 
“universal access to all knowledge.” The website is a huge library of 
text, audio and video file. It boasts 3.8 million ebooks and texts. As 
you browse 
and you find a book of interest, look at the panel on the left to see a 
list of available formats. Most of the time, ePub (a friendly digital 
format) will be included.
ManyBooks. This site offers about 30,000 free ebooks. You’ll find 
to be well organized and easy to browse and that books are available in 
an impressive number of formats.
On a personal note, I do not own a reading device like an iPad, Kindle 
or Nook. I have a laptop computer on which I have downloaded the free 
Kindle reader software 
I own a growing library of nearly 300 Kindle books and read them from 
my computer screen.
