Free ebooks

Postby BrotherPhil » Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:36 am

Another good source of free ebooks is manybooks.net, particularly for more recent stuff.
You need to check your local copyright rules, though: much of the stuff on there is public domain under US law (x years since publication, copyright not renewed), but will still be under copyright under life +70 and life + 50 regimes.

If you are under one of those, I'd suggest googling the author to check.

They also have a good deal of Creative Commons work - free to read and share, as long as you're not trying to make money out of someone else's work.

Thanks for the tip, Dug! I've downloaded a few of these freebies to my laptop. I might even get around to reading them one day. :lol:

For anyone with a kindle or an other make of e-reader, instead of paying mega bucks for a light if you want to read in the dark, I found this in poundland for a £ :lol: and it works just great.
