Hi,

Does anyone know of any good free ebook sites? I don't mean dodgy ones but sites that have permission to allow them as free downloadables?

I have a Kobo as well so epub.

There was a thread a while ago that had sites that linked to free kindles on Amazon. They were great! My computer died though and I lost the links sad.gif I'm hoping some of them reply to this thread, as I'd love to find them again.

And you can just use calibre to convert if needed...

Try your local library and borrow. Many libraries these days have a good selection of ebooks for loan - my local library allows a loan up to 3 weeks and from what I have seen Kobos are supported by libraries.

I have a Kobo and have found the ebooks at my local library to be fabulous - many best sellers and good quality books for free.

Pixel of Ink is good. It's just for Kindle though.

If you 'like' them on facebook, they post about 5+ free and discounted books, 3 times a day.  I have found quite a few authors with a series of books I like.

I use this one - http://www.epubbud.com/  Have to use calibre to convert things and not are formatted correctly, but it's pretty good.  When you download something it shows you a selection of things that others who downloaded the same thing have chosen.  Not a bad way to get recommendations.
