I started reading this, made it about 30% through, and it was slow moving. Then I read some reviews, and discovered the Robin Buss translation in the Penguin Classics version. SO much better! It just flows.
It isn't free - actually it is a $9 ebook. But the difference is worth it.
From tomorrow until Monday, the book will be free for downloading.
This is one of my favorite books of all time and I highly recommend it to anyone. But for anything in the public domain like this Project Gutenburg is my go to place with lots of formats including reading it online, sending it to drive/dropbox, etc.
We mainly use Gutenberg sources, but not always. For example, the Bunin collection I did recently (https://standardebooks.org/ebooks/ivan-bunin/short-fiction/s-s-koteliansky_d-h-lawrence_leonard-woolf_bernard-guilbert-guerney_the-russian-review) was partially Gutenberg, but also from WikiSource and archive.org OCRs.
Calibre can be configured to do this. It's typically the only way I send books to my account. Just look at "Sharing books by email" in Preferences.
This will work with any file that can be read by your kindle and when you are logged into Amazon they show up under "Docs" when you look in your content. The initial sort is for Books, so you need to switch it if you are looking for something you emailed to your account.
Michael Duckett is fed up with his life. His job is a drag, and his roommate and best friend of fifteen years, Stephanie Dyer, is only making him more anxious with her lazy irresponsibility. Things continue to escalate when they face the threat of imminent eviction from their palatial 5th floor walk-up and find that someone has been plastering ads all over the city for their Detective Agency.
The only problem is: He and Stephanie don’t have one of those.
Despite their baffling levels of incompetence, Stephanie eagerly pursues this crazy scheme and drags Michael, kicking and screaming, into the fray only to find that they are way out of their depth. They stumble upon a web of missing people that are curiously linked to a sexually audacious theoretical physicist and his experiments with the fabric of space-time. And unless Michael and Stephanie can put their personal issues aside and fix the multi-verse, the concept of existence itself may, ironically, no longer exist.
If my first book catches your fancy, I just released the sequel today. It's called The One-Hundred Percent Solution and is available on Amazon now!
Not sure if the same version, but there is one with a lot of words sticked together. Would recommend Standard Ebooks version Meditations
Also available in all the usual Amazon territories (de, fr, es, it, nl, jp, in, ca, br, mx, au).
I recommend people check out standardebooks.org when they're after public domain stuff. Gutenberg is good as a repository but often the stuff there is just a scan, really poor OCR scan, poorly formatted etc so the experience is pretty terrible. Standard ebooks have been reviewed by volunteers and fixed up so there's no typos, they format it so it reads well on devices, they give it a cover, title page etc.
There's one here for crime and punishment (Constance Garnett translation) but it looks to be the only entry for Dostoevsky that's been done so far
Please please please: if you read Ulysses, do it with a friend AND a guide like this one. It will make the process a much more enjoyable one, and will make everything more digestible and comprehensible.
Standard eBooks has books in the public domain that an individual has fixed and added common editing from sources like Project Guttenberg. You may want to look at this
Here you are, pal. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B098YLQ4DW It's available in several countries, it's just that I've shared the UK one 'cause of my location. Enjoy!

they are on Amazon.ca (For $0.00) you just need to search them individually
I just wanted to quickly add that it is also free on:
Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/sorcerers-code-christopher-kellen/1108076501?ean=2940032926788
and, for international readers, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/115801
Thanks for an awesome subreddit! =)
I really like the short sci fi collections. A lot of really interesting stuff in there.
Merry Christmas Reddit!
My debut novel, Xan & Ink is the twisted story of four hapless adventurers who blunder into a deadly forest filled with giant, super intelligent insects! Caught in a cat and mouse between a sinister sorceress and a mysterious ranger, can these outclassed rubes survive the Kalparcimex?
Xan & Ink is a weird and dark adult fantasy, comparable in grit level to Joe Abercrombie, with some vivid descriptions and rich worldbuilding.
It's 272 pages, and fast paced, published by Gutpunch Press. It's currently rated 4/5 stars on Amazon.
Here's a poster I made that has a few blurbs from my favorite reviews.
If you don't have a kindle and would like an epub instead, please message me and I will set you up! If you're more of a hard SF fan, my novella SURVIVAL MODE is also free today.
Thanks, I hope you enjoy! Merry Christmas everyone!
For ebooks, I like epubator, which runs entirely locally on Android. I get it from f-droid:
but it's also available from Google Play:
You should be able to access a lot of the sites listed in our wiki like Project Gutenberg and Librivox
here's the US store link!
grabbed it. thank you.
edit, link format (amazon smile)
I have no idea about the quality of the translations but Open Culture and Project Gutenberg have them.
The covers we consider selling are the ones generated by our own generative deep learning models (GANs). These are fully computer-generated but "trained" on a dataset of paintings. Our model is similar to the one generating the fake faces on https://thispersondoesnotexist.com. Google GAN for more info :)
Mine also does magazines using Zinio. Best thing about my library's Zinio service is there is no limit to the number of people that can check out a magazine at once, so if it is in their catalogue you can download it immediately. Not sure if that's the same everywhere tho.
I highly recommend this version: https://librivox.org/the-count-of-monte-cristo-version-3-by-alexandre-dumas/
I tried one of the others, and while I do appreciate the volunteers' efforts, having different readers for the various chapters made it quite challenging to listen to. This version is narrated by the same folks all the way through and it is VERY well done.
Hey 1bent, sorry to hear the link didn't work. Here's the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XGSXYMK/
Apologies if there was any misunderstanding!
Of course! Here's the Amazon UK Link.
Hope you like it!
Although I don't know this series myself, it appears they are all available on amazon for a few pounds each Secrets Of Droon. The one you left it on is HERE. If you are looking for free books, can't find any atm, but keep an eye on amazon as they sometimes give kindle editions away.
Many of them, at least, I don't know if all.
Search Wodehouse Gutenberg in whatever search engine you like, that should find you his author's page on Project Gutenberg, which offers legally free ebooks in many formats.
If you want it only on Kindle, search there, in among the paid versions there are free ones, and the filter button on amazon search results lets you sort by increasing price, which brings the free ones to the beginning.
I’m sorry about that. I just checked and the link should be https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XQKDSQH/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_RIBfFbQMWQQVD if that doesn’t work let me know, and are you in the US? If not I can provide a link in your country.
I'm gonna assume that the seeming ban on ever for all eternity posting a direct link again reflects the subreddit preferences, so I won't keep dodging them with self posts, but I can recommend re-checking this site every morning. Or setting up a programmatic watch with something like Web Alert:

I've started adding this list into PG's Christmas Bookshelf. They use bookshelves to curate books and the bookshelf data gets added to their metadata feed. https://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Christmas_(Bookshelf)
Do you mind if I drop this over in /r/shortwave ? We tend to dig anything that ties into our hobby, and especially with those mysterious numbers stations.
For anyone interested, The Conet Project archives recordings and info about spy numbers stations. Check out UVB-76 (aka The Buzzer), which might be what the book's title is based off of. Could be way off on that, since I haven't read it, yet.
Sorry about that, Amazon only price matches if people complain. If you scroll down the page on Amazon a little and click on "tell us about a lower price" they might price match it.
In the meanwhile, you should be able to download it for free at one of these:
Hi! I hope you like the book! It's a mix of steampunk-inspired science-fiction and fantasy, and is the first book in a series.
If Amazon's not your flavour, you can also grab Ghost Armada from Kobo, and further formats can also be downloaded for numerous devices at Smashwords.
Thank you for the consideration!
Whoa they've got an audio version of Foundation too. Probably the best sci-fi book ever. That site's a helluva find, Chtorr. http://www.openculture.com/2012/01/free_isaac_asimovs_foundation_trilogy.html
FYI, this appears to be an uncredited repack of the free Standard Ebooks edition. You can download the original free ebook edition here.
So this is a nice trove. Those looking for more nicely formatted classics should look at https://standardebooks.org . All in public domain and free to download as you please.
Have you seen https://standardebooks.org? They are doing a similar thing of taking books from project Gutenberg and then formatting them for ebooks.
I just went through half a dozen books on your site and couldn't find one that wasn't already on https://standardebooks.org
Downloaded on my kindle, thank you! I'll check it out when I have some free time (semester is killing me u_u).
Also I noticed on Goodreads the book was missing its cover, so I added it for ya. :) Good luck!

Hi! I'm the author! Would have chosen the adequate flair for that but this, and my other currently free short story, is a piece of erotica and I'd prefer to let you know about that before clicking.
So! I've created this free promo because I just published a third short story: Bloody Devotion, it's about a sad vampire hunter and a frustrated vampire.

I'm not the OP, but when you go to amazon.com, on the listing for the book, there is a button on the right hand side of the page where you "purchase" it. Use the pulldown menu right below the button to choose 'transfer via computer' before "buying" the book. I'm pretty sure you should be able to then use this to read it on your computer:
Hope this helps.
Came here to say that. The pictured book is free though and can be found here.
Guys, this is the 2nd best sci-fi series I've ever read. Honestly.
It's only beaten by Mr Lalonde's main series, Spinward Fringe. Not only is the first book, Broadcast 0: Origins, free on Amazon too, the next books (broadcasts 1 & 2, Resurrection and Awakening) are combined into one volume, so that's half price for each!
I heartily recommend the entire series to anyone who enjoys well-written sci-fi with interesting, varied and deep characters, great settings, and an amazing, detailed and dramatic story.
My Google-Fu isn't that great, but a simple search yields only amazon prints and a scanned copy.
I just tried copying the link to the page I landed on when I hit "format":
And that's just like your original link, goes to the paperback. I guess Amazon doesn't want it to be easy.
I can't speak for any of the others, but there's reviews of Hypercage on Amazon if you want to see if it's the sort of thing you'd like..
If you are not in the US you have to use your home countries amazon URL. In Germany it is:
Regardless of where you are based if you can't download it in your country go to the Amazon or Kindle link you would usually go to for your country, search "The Pragmatist's Guide to Life" and it should work.

So why did the OP hide the free ebook behind a Capcha.
Great book, but I don't like the quality of the version they link to here.
Amazon also has it available for free (at least in US) with what I think is a better rendering: https://www.amazon.com/Flatland-Romance-Dimensions-Edwin-Abbott-ebook/dp/B00KVTS1T2/
Note that there is another story by the author in the same setting in Some of the Best of Tor.Com 2016, which I coincidentally was in the Of reading when I got the email about this novella. The story is A Dead Djinn in Cairo.
That book should be available for free.
Edit: found an Amazon link https://www.amazon.com/Some-Best-Tor-com-2016-Original-ebook/dp/B01MS8EZ9X

Born the heir to the Kingdom of Aldoran, Loren knew she would have to work hard to fill the place of her kind and noble parents once the time came. With the king's hands tied with the threat of war, the queen clinging to life from an attempted assassination, and the kingdom's staunchest ally dead, Loren finds herself the only one who can restore her mother's health and bring peace to the region.
Meanwhile, the Red Sisters of Sagna have their sights on something more valuable than their long-standing alliance with Aldoran. Queen Haedria of Sagna seeks the secrets Aldoran keeps beneath their castle, and her sister Seraphis has her own plans for Princess Loren.
On a journey to find the cure for her mother, she meets Kae the huntress, on whom she leans on for strength, support—and something deeper...

English is my second language, but writing has always been my primary passion.
Alternatural, the book linked above, is a short thriller about Maya, a lawyer/witch who comes back to her hometown to establish her practice, but quickly finds herself with a target on her back.
The Count's Son, is a YA novel about Thomas, the sole survivor of a car crash who wakes up in what seems to be a medieval world, only to discover his parents are still alive there. (I'll be honest with you, the fact that the protagonist is from our world is somewhat of a crutch I used because I was a bit worried about writing in English. It's shorter than Alternatural, and it's meant to be a Young Adult book.)
In any case, thanks a lot if you decide to pick them up. If you like writing reviews, don't hesitate to do so, it's always a great help both to get some visibility and to get some feedback.
