The proliferation of eReaders and eBooks means that we now have access to many more titles than we would have previously had.
There are titles out there that were in the public domain and were no longer copyrighted by an author – and yet, we still had to pay for them because a publisher needed to print them in order to get them to our book shops.
Now that eBooks have taken over, we have greater access to free books than we have ever had before; and we can find and be reading them in an instant.
While not all of the free eBooks out there are only those old eBooks that are now in the public domain, there are actually many free eBooks that you can read because they were published for free.
Here’s our top _____ ways to finding free eBooks. And we’ve also tried and tested all of them so that you don’t have to worry about ending up with lots of junk pdfs.

Project Gutenberg at gutenberg.org is a fantastic site, listing may public domain eBooks that you may find useful. They are mostly old books that are in the public domain but you are sure to find some gems here.

Hart then went on to type and scan in many texts into digital format. He died in 2011, age 64, and yet the project lives on. Be sure to check it out if you’re looking for free eBooks.
