A WEALTH OF WEBSITES FOR E-BOOKS

RadicchioWe just returned from a visit to Eugene’s Saturday Market, one of our favorite Eugene activities.  I’ll be posting more photos in the next day or two (plus a fun new recipe for grilled Romaine salad).  But for now…

When we got home, I found a comment on my recent Kindle post from my friend Judie.  She said:

A friend sent me his list of places to download free books from the net.  I haven't tried any of them, so can't verify them.”

Since the list was so long, I decided to post it here, rather than as a comment.  Welcome to the big, wide world of free books!  Thanks, Judie, and thanks to your anonymous and well organized friend, too.

Like Judie, I haven’t tried any of these yet, so can’t verify that they work or have value to me… but it will be fun to dig in.

  3. Must bookmark this page so if and when I get an e-book I can find it again. And I'm sure someday in the not too distant future I will break down and get me an e-reader. Thanks for the info.

  6. The radicchio is beautiful. I look forward to local food markets as I travel. I am into "chopped" salads these days. I can cram so many more goodies into a salad bowl and my tummy! I take kitchen shears and chop my salad right into the bowl then add dressing. Yummy....

  7. Thanks for the info... I read a lot and it can get expensive buying books. I got a kindle for my birthday in January and love it... now I don't have to worry about taking up space in Tassie with all my books that I love!

    Have fun & Travel safe

  9. Wow! That's a longer list than my friend sent me. :)

    I stick with ManyBooks.net, though, as I like their synopsis and excerpt formats.

  10. Just looking at the list, without actually going to the sites, it looks like it would be mostly old titles that are out of copyright or possibly indie authors who would rather give/almost give their work away than not have it read. Sadly I like more current stuff, but still, if I get the time I may give some of these sites a look see.
