For years, even before I got my Kindle I've downloaded a number of books from online sources that are completely free to read. Most are on the Public Domain, some were donated by their authors.

Today I came across yet another site that lists Free Online books and came across one that might be of interest to those here. This one has not had it's copyright renewed so has fallen into the realm of Public Domain, even thought it it still being sold by a number of retailers. If you want a copy you can purchase it, but if you want to just read it, that you can do for free online. To advance through the book, you have to click on the link at the bottom of each page.

Cool! Probably 95% or better of what's on my Kindle has been free. I get a daily email through Pixel of Ink. I know there's a way to get them through the public libraries too, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet (after over a year LOL). I have just the basic Kindle e-reader.

At the Gutenberg Project, http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page

Which I believe has been around the longest, and probably the largest selection of FREE BOOKS available, you can download many of them in a variety of formats, including for the Kindle E Readers. Just download to your computer, then using the USB/Recharger Cable that came with the Kindle... (I'm assuming you know how to change the recharger to USB) then hook your kindle to the computer. The Kindle shows up as mass storage device. Now transfer files you downloaded to the computer to your Kindle where you can read them.

Everything at Gutenberg is free and they have titles available in English and in other languages. Just saw at the top of the page they currently offer 42,241 books as free downloads. Which means if you could manage to read 1 book per day, it will only take just 116 years to finish all of them. By then they'll probably have more you can start on.
