There is nothing more relaxing than grabbing a hot cup of coffee and bundling up with a nice book. With so many eBooks to choose from you can pick and choose new worlds to dive into regardless of where you happen to be. Although eBooks are easier to transport, buying new titles can still push you over your monthly book budget. Thankfully, there are a lot of places where you can find free eBooks to keep your mind engaged and your electronic library full for free.
The Open Library
For bibliophiles, the best place in the world is probably a library. For those who can spare the time to visit their local branch or who would rather fill up their eReader instead, this site is a dream come true. This is an open-source website the can be edited by anyone who has access to the internet. They plan to have copies of every book published available to borrow eventually, but right now they are working with a few million titles. From textbooks to children’s books, you are sure to find something to keep your mind engaged with these free downloads. Just keep in mind that books can only be borrowed, just like at your local library so you will have to return some before you check out new titles.
A smaller but still worthwhile site that offers just over 55k eBooks for free. Another great thing about this site aside from its free titles is that you can read online, on your Kindle, or on just about any other eReading device that you won. Granted the selection is not as large as some other places, but if you are looking for something to read and you are short on funds, it’s a great option to consider.
Google eBook Store
Google is well known for bringing the world to your fingertips, but did you know that it also has millions of book titles? There are free books in every genre to choose from available to download in an assortment of formats ranging from Kindle and Nook to generic digital readers and pdfs. The bookstore is easy to use and also paired with reviews, so you can find new authors to explore and leave your feedback after every use.
This website has thousands of books that are free to download and even groups dedicated to discussions for some of the most popular titles. Think of it as an online book club where you can browse stories, read along with your friends, and then discuss the plot as you go along. You can make a wish list, track your reading progress, and more. You do need to create an account, but it is free and will give you access to all of the cool features the website has to offer. There are thousands of books to choose from, but the only downside is that it takes a while for new releases to hit the site for distribution.
Amazon Free Kindle Books
No list would be complete without Amazon someone among the ranks. Though Kindle unlimited and regular titles cost money, there are thousands of books available on the site for free download. You can find top 100 titles in every genre for free and the selection updates every few weeks. For those who love to read and are in the mood to find new authors, this is a great way to get your fix. It can be a little bit hard to find the books that are listed for free, but once you master the navigation, you will never have an empty bookshelf again.
