Today, while at the library I noticed you can now check them out, the same as a book. What a good way to try one out before you buy, or to have someone hospital or bedbound to be able to load with their favorite books without getting out. Our library and Amazon.com have a fairly large selection of books you can download for free.
You can also download the computer software for free that will let you download the e-books onto your computer for free. No gas to get to the library! And, you don't have to worry about over due books and their fees.

I love this website http://ereadernewstoday.com/ and subscribe to it for a daily offer. At the top right of the site there's a tab for "free kindle books" that changes daily, but are usually free only for that day, so you have to make sure it's still free when you visit. I have over 100 books on my Kindle from this site!
I have a Kindle and now, a Kindle Fire. Perhaps the Fire is so-called because it's the first thing you'll reach for if you have to get out of the house quickly! Seriously, though, I subscribe to a free site, eReaderIQ.com. They send you a listing every day of hundreds of books.
You set up your own genres so you don't have to wade through topics in which you're not interested. The site shows covers, descriptions, author's other ebooks, etc. I must admit I have over 4,000 books downloaded! How's that for a rainy/snowy day, or frequently resting due to "bone problems"! Happy hunting for other sites (Amazon has one that includes out-of-copyright classics for free).
This is a great way to go, however, just like a book they do expire, so try not to download so many at one time that you wont be able to finish reading them. some libraries also have a limit on how many you can check out at one time. amazon does not have as many limitations. I use it all the time. I also love the audio books, I just load them to an MP3 player.
