Rather than buying hardcover books paperbacks many people these days are choosing to read books with any reader or on a computer. With the advancing technology. It is even possible to read books on a mobile phone. If you buy a downloadable book from Amazon to read on your Kindle or other reader it is usually cheaper than buying the hardcover paperback version; but if you’re short on money this may still be too expensive for you. In this article we look at how to find online books for free.
Now, you probably know that you can illegally download any books and lots of other items from torrent sites. However, you should be aware that this is illegal and not necessary because there are plenty of other places where you can get ebooks of free without having to worry about copyright issues.
The project Gutenberg is a great site for free e-books. This project actually started in the 1970s when the founder Michael Hart began to digitise works of literature that were not covered by copyright. When the whole world went online the project grew quickly, and is now enormous. There are more than 33,000 books available to download free of charge from the Project Gutenberg site.
DailyLit is a site that has serialised a number of novels, breaking larger books into smaller segments. Every day, you will receive a portion of your chosen book, which has an advertisement attached. This is a great idea as it allows readers to read commercial books which they otherwise may not be able to afford and it also encourages you to read as you receive a portion of the book every day.
Amazon.com have a free and discounted section on their website. You will usually find around 20,000 books available in the free section at any time. Some of these are older books that are now in the public domain, and others are recently written Kindle books that the authors give away free for a short time in the hope of getting good reviews or to build a readership who may later purchase their work.
