In addition to these ten websites, there are many more out there that are very similar in selection and ease of navigation.

A few weeks ago I stumbled across a website that has free e-books, called free-ebooks.net. This site is a little different in that it has many books by Indie authors for you to download. It has books of all categories written by new, independent authors and more experienced authors. For your decision-making assistance, it has each category listed and there is a search option for most popular ones, and the actual ranking of the books.

This is one of the most popular sites that offers free books, and once you peruse it, you will see why!
If you are searching for cultural and educational books, Open Culture may be perfect for you. They have over 600 free books with titles such as The Wizard of Oz, Aesop’s Fables, This Side of Paradise, and books by Isaac Asimov, Jane Austin, Emily Dickenson, and so many more. If you have been wanting to read a classic title, but just don’t want to invest in it or borrow it from the library, it can be effortlessly downloaded and enjoyed by you.
Project Gutenburg has a website that offers 46,000 free e-books by notorious authors. It has an immense array of e-books for your e-reader or for your computer.

It is updated often and has Indie authors as well as very popular titles from distinguished writers. The more individuals download from these independent authors, the more feedback they receive.

It also offers other categories, as well, but is perfect for the student who loves to read. There are roughly 30,000 e-books to choose from at no cost. This is an amazing site for middle-school or high school students (or the adult that loves these genres). Teachers also take advantage of this site since are many titles that can be used in the classroom.
Another way to download free e-books is through your local library’s website. Many libraries have websites that have free e-books to borrow, just as if you were actually in the library itself. This is definitely worth pursuing, especially if you want the current bestsellers. Even though you are borrowing the book through the lending library service, you can get the most recent bestsellers for nothing.

These sites have also made it very convenient to browse from home and download a variety of books. If you have an e-reader, remember and bookmark these wonderful sites. They are definitely worth looking into and can save you a lot of time and money. Plus, if you love books as much as I do, you will find it quite enjoyable to sit back, relax, and browse the many titles available at no cost!
