Reading books online (free)

Postby CogDissident » Tue Jul 31, 2012 8:31 pm UTC

I'm looking for some good sites to find books online to read. Free book sites only please.

I've found one book by Sanderson, and the Baen free-library project. But haven't found anything else online and figured if anyone knew where to find good digital books it would be the XKCD crowd.

http://www.free-ebooks.net/ (seem to have to register for this one). removed due to fact it is apparently a scam site.

Be careful of that free-ebooks link. It is a scam-site (you can't download books until you install a shop-at-home toolbar).

Further searching has turned up this awesome list:

Mostly sci-fi (though xkcd does have a sci-fi bent), but also some fantasy and horror genre books as well.
