Four Place to Get Free Ebooks That Don’t Suck: Today in Critical Linking


It’s hard to find good, legal reads online – unless you know where to look. There are several sites that offer classic out-of-copyright writing, or publishes new e-books online as promotions. If you know where to look, you can feast on these completely free Ebooks for all the time you’ve got, and today is the day we’ll show you where to look.

I was just looking around for a good place to find a particular public domain book and stumbled across this list of four places to get free books that don’t suck (because many of the other places really do suck).


For the study, Baron surveyed over 300 university students from the U.S., Japan, Germany and Slovakia about their reading preferences. When given options between physical books and electronic reading devices, 92% of students said they could concentrate best with physical books.

Ebooks haven’t just plateaued in sales, their relative desirability is actually decreasing…at least among college students.


A bookshop in Texas is offering a 10% discount to customers who are legally “open carrying” a handgun while shopping for new reading material.

Brave New Books, which says it stocks a mix of “conspiracy, economic policy, history, and politics” books, as well as “selections about sustainability, survival [and] preparedness”, made the announcement in late January.

Basically this is the last bookstore I would ever go to.
