How To Get Free Books (And Yes, This Includes Suze Orman…)

by heather

Who doesn’t love getting free stuff? There’s just something about that word, “free”, that makes people sit up and take notice.

Well, here are some words that will trump even that: Free Books

Free is good. Free books are even better. So, let’s dive in.

Resource 1: Get Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan For Free

Right now you can download a free copy of Suze Orman’s newest book off Oprah.com. I first found out about this from J.D. at Get Rich Slowly. But, I’m a bit slow on the uptake; there’s an expiration date on this, and it’s this Thursday, January 15.

That’s only two days away from the date of this post, so don’t wait on this!

Click here to go directly to the download. And thanks to J.D. at Get Rich Slowly for writing about this great offer!

Resource 2: Download Free Books From Project Gutenburg

I love Project Gutenburg. This volunteer project’s mission is to amass a huge collection of free ebooks to help distribute knowledge. To date, they have over 27,000 free ebooks up on their site.

Almost all of them are classics whose copyright has expired. But, there are some really wonderful writers on the site. All free for your downloading pleasure.

Here’s a small sampling:

Pretty cool, right? The selection is amazing. They’ve got a huge collection of classics, like I said, but also plenty of really oddball titles. Enough to keep any bibliophile occupied for days, at least.

Resource 3: Download Free Books From ManyBooks.Net

I personally haven’t used ManyBooks.net, but it looks like they’ve got some good titles up here. For instance, one of this week’s main selections is “The Brothers Karamzov”, by Dostoyevsky. A classic, and, completely free!

What’s cool about ManyBooks is that you can download books directly to your iPod, PDA, or ebook reader in addition to your computer.

There are many more places online to get free books, which means if you’re looking for a classic there’s no reason to go out and spend money on buying a new copy.

Thanks for the tip, I hadn’t heard about the Suze Orman book. And I love Project Gutenberg too!
