I found this on IPadForum, posted by IPad Master Bremen. It should work for Kindle as well. I haven't yet tried any of them as I have entirely too many books already on my Kindle!

Bremen said:

Quote: I have posted a few of these in various places, but thought I would tie it together here. These are some sites that have FREE ebooks that are already in ePub format. They will import and read as is in iBooks.


ePub Books - MobileRead Forums

ManyBooks.net - Free eBooks for your iPad, smartphone, or eBook reader

epubBooks.com - Free EPUB eBooks for your mobile eReader - Unleash Your Books

Feedbooks | Food for the mind

http://www.baen.com/library/

http://www.snee.com/epubkidsbooks/

The link below is a site that converts documents to ePub online.... Nothing to download....

2EPUB - Free tool to convert documents and e-books to EPUB format. 100% free online converter.

Calibre is also a free program that converts to just about any ebook format. It is a great program that is easy to use.

E-Readers, Suggestions and Questions

Here we go, an E-Reader thread that is specific for E-Books. I will work on getting those posts in the "What are you reading now?" thread moved here.

I am hoping we use this thread for troubleshooting and suggestions, recommendations. We can continue with the reading thread to name those titles we are reading.

Have Fun!

I wish for a housekeeper to clean my house twice a week, and a small lottery win to finance my travel dreams.

OK, back to the eReader thing. I have a Calibre question. Does it cost anything?

Alix, I don't understand how you are getting library books on your Kindle now. At the Amazon Kindle discussion board, Amazon announced they will be using Overdrive so Kindle owners could download library books by the end of this year but none of the posters can use this feature now! What's your secret? :)
