Where to get free eBooks

Today's merging of different gadgets into one  is making digital products cheaper. Taking for example ebooks. You can fill in your digital reader with a few pounds with nice titles which is a lot cheaper than filling up the whole shelves with books, which can costs hundreds with the same titles. Whilst making a saving on the price, you can also save on space.

While "elibraries" can be a fraction of the price, it is also possible to have it for free, without buying anything as long as you have the hardware in hand, iPad, iPhone, any smartphone, Kindle and other eReaders.

You might have not noticed but iTunes has a surprising free 27 thousand ebooks and still mounting everyday. I personally like their free "guide" ebooks, about iphone, ipad, and other electronics products. These guides when purchased in physical form can range from £5 to £20. They are also very easy to use and informative. Get them by going into the book section of itunes and just select the free ones.
