Project Gutenberg is one of the best sources of free e-books on the internet. Since all material is in the public domain, you can legally download, read and share anything on the site.

Books are available in multiple formats, which typically include EPUB and Kindle, or you can choose to view the text in your browser.

To get a free eBook, you’ll need to go to Project Gutenberg, search for the title or author, and select a format to start downloading. Once you have the file, you’re free to open it in a compatible app or send it to an eReader for easy reading.

Project Gutenberg isn’t the only website to offer public domain material for free. If you can’t find what you want, it might be worth exploring other options.

Amazon offers a variety of free e-books anytime. However, titles are not always advertised or easy to find.

If you want to summon a list of free Amazon books, you can do so by searching Free ebooks in the Kindle Store Category.

The search results will include some Kindle Unlimited titles, but many free-to-read books should also appear in the list. You can narrow the selection by adding additional keywords, such as fantasy or science fiction, to the query.

Once you’ve purchased a free book — if buying is even the right word — you own the title just as you would with any other purchase from the Kindle Store.
