    Best eBook Download Sites?

    Following Chassamui's thread for recommended music downloads, has anyone got any pointers for the best ebook download sites?

    (I was using the bookos site that blue originally recommended, but its sadly now defunct).

    If you don't want to steal, google books and sites like the www.gutenberg.org/‎
    have out of copyright books for free.

    other than that torrents www.kat.ph not always good for a specific book but their are vast library collections being torrented all the time.

    Kindle have plenty of free downloads. You can search for them by genre and get a synopsis for each book before you take it.

    Quality torrent sites like kat.ph are very quick to remove bad torrents, they also have comments where downloaders will rate the torrent.
    Unless you are the first downloader it's very unlikely that you will get a virus.

    There are plenty of great sites to Download E books for free. Some of my favorites are Project Gutenberg and open Library. There are other great sites too but I would suggest you to read more about them before deciding which one would be best for you.

    I find that Google eBookstore is one of the best sites to download e-books for free. Because their books are also of great variety and they usually have everything you want or search for it. I also use https://fidibo.com/ to download an audiobook or e-book; some of its books are free but most of them are paid. But the books on this site are supported by most ebook readers.
