I love curling up with a real book, a cup of tea, and a blanket, but right now I just don’t have the space or money to keep buying books right now.   So I have to put my dream of having a home library and force myself to read e-books or check them out from the library.  But if you aren’t like me and need the feel of a real book in your hands, I’ve got a treat for you.  There are a variety sites that offers free e-books from the classics, romance, and more.  Check them out  below.

Google Books – If you love classic books then this a great place to find them.  All the books come in a PDF format to be downloaded to your computer and transferred to an e-book reader.

ManyBooks.net offers a great variety of books in all genres.  The best part is it’s free.  Books are easy to find.   This is a readers play ground.  Search for over 10,000 books by title, author, or genre, subject, most popular, and more.
