Top 10 Best Places to Get Free Books (Part 2)

6. Find Specialized IT Books With

free computer books

I think the name of the site says it all.  What I like about this site is that all their books are very specifically tagged so you can zoom down on whatever topic you want very quickly.

Too lazy to read?  Get Librivox to read it to you!  These guys are undertaking a collaborative project and working with volunteers to make all books in the public domain available, for free, in audio format on the Internet.  They also offer podcasts for their recent work too, so you can get books on your MP3 player with a snap of your fingers. 

8. Skip the Book and Get Free Study Notes with CliffsNotes

Yes – CliffsNotes, the all time favorite resource for literary study guides, are now GIVING away their a lot of their literary material.  A truly excellent resource if you’re cramming for a test.

9. Save Money on Textbooks With WikiBooks

WikiBooks is yet another awesome project by the Jimmy Wales and the WikiMedia team (The same guys who brought you Wikipedia) with a mission to create a free collection of open-content textbooks that anyone can edit. 

They currently have more than 25,000 books on a variety of topics, and can rival many public libraries.  One thing to be wary off is that the books can be edited, defaced, or maliciously changed by anyone.  While this same possibility is true for Wikipedia, their large base of editors and volunteers ensure that any bad behavior is kept in check.  This project would have a much smaller base, and thus may not correct mistakes as fast.

10. Receive Books In Small Parts via Email Using DailyLit


No time to read?  DailyLit breaks down big books into smaller chunks so you can read it in palatable parts.

Why read books by email?
