Free Kindle Books on Feedbooks

Feedbooks is a book store, selling books and e-books with an unpredictable price deviation in comparison the Kindle Books on Amazon.  Some books are cheaper and some books are more expensive than Amazon’s selection.  So, before buying a book from Amazon, perhaps, you would want to check it out on Feedbooks first.  You might save a dollar, or two.  Or not.

FitzgeraldHowever, e-books are being sold all over the internet.  Finding places where to buy e-books is not that challenging any more.  So, from this point of view, Feedbooks’ selection of priced books is not much of an interest for me.  I’m on the quest of finding free e-book libraries for your Kindle.  And if you click on “Public Domain” section, Feedbooks provides a limited, but still worthy of checking out selection of free e-books.  The registration for downloading the free e-books is optional.

ForsterOnce you found that special book for your solitary enjoyment, do not press “download” immediately.  It will automatically download the e-book in EPuB format.  Click on the book’s title and then you will have a choice of downloading the book in PDF or “Kindle” format, which is actually .MOBI.

As I already said, by all means, it is not a large free e-book library.  However, you can still find Fitzgerald’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which is not available on Amazon for free (the prices vary from $0.95 to $11.99).  Also, there is Cory Doctorow’s I, Robot available for free (not available in Kindle Books on Amazon).  And those, who complained about free Kindle Edition of E. M. Forster’s A Room with a View (missing passages and such), give it a try to this version on Feedbooks, maybe it is better.

Happy reading.

    Have you tried http://www.forgottenbooks.org for free ebooks? They have low-quality books for free, but give away 1 free ebook per day at high quality.

    Feedbooks doesn’t sell any kindle compatible books ! only Epub.

    However all Free are available in mobi (for kindle).

    Glynn,

    Thank you for the link.

    I did check them out. I was not too impressed with the fact that the free .PDFs are _that_ low quality – they are hardly legible. And I’m not quite sure, why would anybody pay for the membership if the majority of these books are available on Amazon Classics or Gutenberg for free. (Same goes for one book per day – today’s book is available here http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4986).

    Perhaps, this site is targeted for a very narrow crowd of scholars, who need these texts in these specific editions.
