    Default Ebooks: Good? Bad? Free!!!!!!!!!!

    Nothing more relaxing than reading a good book and ebooks are awesome.

    So let's hear what's good and what's bad.

    Where do you get yours, and have you found any good places to get ebooks for free?!!!

    And how about ebook swaps?

    The best place to get free ebooks is from Amazon. You'll need a Kindle, of course. But Amazon has a huge selection of free Kindle books. Some are only free for a week or so, so you have to know how to search for them.

    I've had a Kindle for 3 years. I've actually bought about four books in that time -- and I read about a book a week. Plus, I have at least 25 on my device waiting to be read.

    I have a kindle and a nook. But kindle by faaaar has more available free books than nook. My nook is a color touch so I use it more but I'm dying to get my hands on a kindle fire.

    Also if you have the Amazon Prime membership you can read a book a month for free. Amazon.com: Kindle Owners' Lending Library

    +1 Project Gutenberg. I like it because you don't have to log in or anything. Just grab your books and head on down the road.

    The epub ones can go straight to my ipad; dunno about the other formats. Epub is what my Pandigital Novel (connects to B&N by default) uses, so that's what I started out with, and since the ipad can use epub too, all the better.

    I've been reading some great historical fiction for free for quite a while now.

    I also mined Barnes & Noble for lots of freebies.

    ETA: Amazon / Kindle thoughts deleted: never mind. Not compatible w/ my devices.

    Since I already have an Amazon account (who doesn't?) maybe I'll go on a little free book mining expedition there.
    ETA: Ooh... I may not be able to read Kindle's format. Research is necessary.
    You don't need to have a Kindle to read the Amazon books. They have a download for reading Kindle books for your pc or ipad Amazon.com: Free Kindle Reading Apps

    Oh cool. Thanks, Fudgey. I went there and it looked like having a registered Kindle device was the only way. I'll check back now.
