I recently got an e-reader, and I love it. As a reader, I care about writers, and am aware of the value in paying them for their work. But… well, I also like getting things free. Fortunately, many publishers and authors have chosen to make certain of their works available online, free and legally. So this is an attempt to catalog, for myself and others, free and legal ebooks and short stories available on the Internet for downloading to an e-reader.
I’m looking primarily for works that are already in e-reader ready formats, and I’m going to try to keep the tags and other metadata clean and comprehensive, so that finding a book or story you might enjoy is super-easy.
I’m not including older ebooks that have fallen into the public domain, as they are much more comprehensively catalogued at Project Gutenberg. I’m also not generally including excerpts, unless I really like the work they’re from.
Hope you find this site useful!
