A huge free eBooks mine you may have ignored.

Recent years when I visit the Yahoo Answer, I can see plenty people ask, where can I get free Kindle/ePub books for free?

Well, they all have missed a website called Google, once they search the word free eBooks they can get thousands of results.

OK, some may say that many sites are "fake free", all the free books are public domain classics, they have read it all, what they want is fresh free ebooks.

Except google, you can get free books very easy. There is a huge free eBooks mine beside you, but maybe you don't know.

2 days ago, PewInternet has shared some interesting findings, here I pick some pieces important. And they will tell you where the ebook gold mine is.

  • 12% of readers of e-books borrowed an e-book from the library in the past year. But a majority of Americans do not know that this service is provided by their local library.
  • 58% of all library card holders say they do not know if their library provides e-book lending services.
  • 53% of all tablet computer owners say they do not know if their library lends e-books.
  • 48% of all owners of e-book reading devices such as original Kindles and NOOKs say they do not know if their library lends e-books.
  • 46% of those who do not currently borrow e-books from libraries say they would be “very” or “somewhat” likely to borrow an e-reading device that came loaded with a book they wanted to read.

Get it? The free eBooks gold mine is the public library of your town and your school. And there is an app called OverDrive which aims at helping your borrow ebooks from public library.

Of course, I don't think all the public library will hold the most fresh and hot eBooks, but if you have no eager in those hot and fresh eBooks, I believe the free eBooks in your public library can meet your all kinds of demands.

On our official site, we've compiled you a review for near 20 great free eBooks sites. And we also have a Facebook page which offer you the free Kindle eBooks everyday, if you are a Kindle owner, you can "Like us" then get the free Kindle eBooks everyday.
