The advent of the Internet has paved the way for instant access to anything and everything you need, books included. Here are some of the best sites where you can find free books online.
One of the most amazing benefits of the World Wide Web is the immediate and abundant access to information that it offers. With only a few clicks of a mouse, you can find information about virtually any subject you can imagine. One of the most popular types of information content on the Internet today is ebooks. Although primitive prototypes of electronic books existed as early as the 1960s, the ebook as we know it really exploded on the scene in the mid-to-late 2000's when ebook reading devices such as the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook were introduced into the market. In today's digitally driven world, there are thousands of Web-based vendors that sell ebooks, but where can you find free ebooks online? Below are some of the most convenient places to find free ebooks and free books online.

1. Project Gutenberg [] - A volunteer-powered and volunteer-funded effort, Project Gutenberg houses a colossal database of ebooks covering an expansive array of categories and titles. Many of the most famous public domain works are found here, and it's also a great place to find those somewhat obscure texts from earlier centuries as well. The only (minor) drawback to Project Gutenberg is that its search function isn't the most user-friendly, so it will take some getting used to before you can learn how to navigate their database (over 46,000 ebooks).

2. Open Library [] - The Open Library is absolutely huge, with well over 1 million free ebooks to browse, borrow or collect. The main emphasis of the Open Library is classic literature, but they also offer a ton of titles in other categories as well. Ebooks are available in a wide variety of formats including PDF, ePub, MOBI, and plain text.

3. ChatEbooks [] - ChatEbooks has a unique and highly engaging format in which you can not only browse, sample and download free ebooks, but you can also interact with your favorite authors and participate in live chat room book discussions. Membership for readers is free, and you can read free ebooks online or download them to your favorite device. Chat E-books has plenty of great titles to choose from, and with the interactive/social component added to the mix, you are sure to have an enjoyable reading experience.

4. The Internet Archive [] - The Internet Archive is an enormous non-profit digital library that contains many of those hard-to-find titles from yesteryear. The Archive offers popular out-of-print books from previous decades (and centuries) in a variety of languages and formats. This is one of the best spots to go to on the Web if you're looking for academic or historical books as well.

5. BookBoon [] - BookBoon is a great resource for educational textbooks and business books in particular. With a database of over 1,000 free ebooks and no registration required to download, BookBoon is a good place to check when you're looking for specific academic or business titles.

One thing is for certain: When it comes to finding free ebooks, the Internet offers so many resources that you'll easily run out of time before you'll ever run out of free ebooks to read. Use the list above as a guide to help you hunt down your next free ebook.
