A reader recently lamented that I cost him $1000s of dollars each year in the many CDs, books and DVDs that mention when they catch my fancy.
OK, Mike, this one is for you: Tons of free eBooks, in the form of PDFs and Kindle format, at a relatively new site called Many Books.
You can find books broken down by Author, Genre,top downloads by year, reviews and recommendations.
It is a totally free site maintained by Matthew McClintock:
All of the eBooks from manybooks.net are free, however donations toward the maintenance of the site are welcome and help defray the cost of bandwidth, file storage, and server hardware.
Many of the etexts are from the November, 2003 Project Gutenberg DVD, which contains the entire Project Gutenberg archives except for the Human Genome Project and audio eBooks, due to size limitations, and the Project Gutenberg of Australia eBooks, due to copyright. As of July 2004 most current PG texts are available here, usually within the week of release. There are also public domain and creative commons works from many other sources.
