I believe that there are free books available through the iBooks app Gutenburg Project catalog. These are out-of-copyright or non-copyright titles, so you won't get anything from the bestsellers list.

And please don't bring up that scam site that charges $50.00 for the information that I just gave you.

Also what site are you referring to that costs $50.00?

That information was valuable. I was always thinking, what is behind that obvious scammer. Thanks for sharing.

BTW, there are a lot of the Gutenberg books even in the iBook-Store.

One tip here:

As the free books don't come with proper covers, I pull up the information about the free book in iTunes and copy and paste the covers from amazon.com

FYI We call them ebooks not ibooks . Ibooks is the software reading application from Apple for the iPad.

iVan,

Don't worry about it. I was not offended. I am glad you corrected me. Now I can call them what they are.... eBooks.

Not mad at all......

This forum has been often spammed by people trying to earn a comission from iPadmedia.com or some such name. The unwary who fail to read the TOS find out that they've just spent $50. for freely available info.

Oh, and by the way, if you download the Kindle book app for iPad you will find free books there, too. Amazon gives away recent titles on a regular basis and makes out of copyright titles available all the time. One possible drawback is that an Amazon account is needed, but since I already have a Kindle it's a natural for me.
