    Hey guys,

    I have been searching for some time, but is there a site you guys reliably use (eg blog, searchable site or whatever) to download the latest/greatest epub ibooks?

    It would be nice to keep up with what's new!

    This site can be html based or rapidshare or whatever...Just curious as to where YOU are getting your ibooks from (for those that are not paying)

    I have just about every reader out there: Kindle, Stanza, B&N, Borders and of course iBooks. Kindle is hands down the leader, but iBooks is (slowly) catching up. Stanza is nice because it provides links to several providers including Project Gutenberg which has over 33,000 FREE!!! titles. Oh, did I mention they were free?

    EDIT: P.S. Please do not come back here and tell us about the great offer you found where you can download and unlimited number of books for free after you pay a $50 membership fee. Its a scam!

    Very nice link, I grabbed a couple of books that look interesting. It's great finding these indie and PD book sites, finding things I either forgot about or never would find if I just look at the big book store sites.
    Thanks for the link Bremen.

    ...and like most music, books are protected by copyright laws. Some of the major sellers offer free stuff, but if something is not in the public domain, you will most likely have to pay for it.

    Have I used places like LimeWire? Sure, but that doesn't mean I don't feel guilty about it!

    I purchase books thru amazon, barmes & noble, iBooks..and other legitimate means of paying the hard working authors for their troubles...

    thats what I meant to say....really.

    Thank goodness this 1971 classic is available as a free .pdf so I didn't have to steal it!

    This really brings back memories of my youth... or at least it would bring back memories of I hadn't killed those brain cells! Doh!

    I've always used Project Gutenberg, they have a very good selection and the files have been formatted pretty well (simple formatting, but few distracting mistakes).
