Day 8: Finding free ebooks

Are you an adventurous reader? Is "Frugal" your middle name? Is your appetite for ebooks so great that you always have the maximum number of titles checked out from OverDrive and still want more? We've collected together some sources for free ebooks for you. Did we miss a good one? Let us know in the comments!

Classics: Most classic (public domain) ebooks are stored by Project Gutenberg and a few other sources, but many other sites make the same titles available. They may offer enhanced browsing/searching interfaces or add value with summaries, excerpts, and reader reviews.

Small/Independent Publishers and Self-Published Authors: You won't find current bestsellers here, but there's a chance you might stumble on something new and wonderful. (Your mileage may vary!)

Free titles from Ebook Vendors: An account, device, or specific app may be required to use these titles.

The Stockton-San Joaquin County Public Library has an extensive list of sites for free ebooks: http://www.stockton.lib.ca.us/ebooks.htm

(found when I was checking out the Wisconsin Valley Library Service's page for "eBooks, eReaders & Libraries" which also has lots of good links and resources: http://wvls.lib.wi.us/ebooks.htm)
