Free eBooks And Audio Books To Read Online Or Download




This is the launch page for the pages here at Gizmo's Tech Support Alert that list sites with free ebooks and audiobooks.  There are well over a million free ebooks and audiobooks at the sites listed within these pages.

There are 3 pages that separate sites on the format of the ebooks, Kindle, ePub and Online Reading.

There is a main page for both ebooks and audiobooks that lists all the sites carrying each. There are also 21 genre listings.

The sites within the free comic books and free motion comics pages are not included in the main ebook and audiobook pages.

To the best of my knowledge all of the websites listed here offer only content that they are legally entitled to transfer to you. If you find a site listed here that you know illegally offers copyrighted material, please contact me through the site with a link to the infringing content. Mr6n8

To the best of my knowledge every website listed here, and its downloads, are safe. By the rules of this site, no website that has a red or an orange rating at Web of Trust (WOT) is allowed in the listings. I also use LinkExtend, a browser addon that offers the ratings from six other website rating products, to verify the sites here are clean. I have never encountered any issue while visiting these sites. Additionally, I have downloaded something from every site that offers a download and have never encountered an issue. If you should ever encounter malware on any of these sites, please contact me through the site and provide the link to the offending content. Mr6n8

I hope you enjoy the content. If you have a genre or other interest that you would like added to these listings, you may contact me or post in the comments below.

What about free e-books for the Nook?

by Sea Mac on 19. January 2014 - 6:36  (113721)

You may already know of this site:

The University of Virgina has a VERY OLD, and now abandoned in place, library of selected Hypertexts ... a few of which are good reads.

The link is old, and very obscure: I saw some DUST fall off when I first clicked on it!

(Darn I hate to see a project RUSTING in cyberspace like this .... :( )

When WAS that page last updated, anyway? I suspect it originated about the era of Windows 3.1 ~~~~~ 'cause that URL is very 'DOS like' ....

by laurengutteridge on 10. June 2014 - 12:35  (116707)

i agree

by Sea Mac on 19. January 2014 - 6:50  (113722)
by Slim G on 2. November 2013 - 23:16  (111962) provides freely downloadable eBooks, documents courses and lecture notes found all over the internet.

by mr6n8 on 2. November 2013 - 23:45  (111963)

Thanks. I have bookmarked and will add in on next update.

It will be added to the Free Courses Online pages here (which is a very good resource also) as well as some of the other pages here.


by snldr1 on 4. September 2013 - 20:02  (110521)

I echo the request for a section on arts and crafts.

by mr6n8 on 17. November 2013 - 11:08  (112287)

I finally have put up a free ebook, and written instruction, page for Arts & Crafts and Hobbies.

Hopefully, I will get the video instruction page up soon.


by FishDoc on 27. August 2013 - 15:58  (110359)

In the section Free eBooks & Audiobooks By Genre, I would like to see a section for books on arts and crafts - can that be done? I find it very difficult to find free ebooks in these genres.



by mr6n8 on 17. November 2013 - 11:08  (112286)

I finally have put up a free ebook, and written instruction, page for Arts & Crafts and Hobbies.

Hopefully, I will get the video instruction page up soon.

Thanks for the suggestion.


by mr6n8 on 27. August 2013 - 19:35  (110362)

I have seen some listings for that at sites and thought about it during my latest round of updates on ebooks. I do not have much time as of now, but I will see what I can do.


by mr6n8 on 19. April 2013 - 15:03  (107198)

As of April 19, 2013, all pages have been updated and all links have been checked with LinkChecker and are working.

I will be unavailable for most of the time during the next month and usually will not be able to respond to posts.

However, I will be back after that, so any new sites or corrections to the listings that you post would be appreciated even though I may not be able to respond when you post.

Great and useful list.
Thanks for sharing.

I have a blog, Free (and semi-free) Literary Books for the Kindle (US & UK)

I feature out of copyright works. Now the most recent book featured was .99 - but that is the first time in probably a year that I wrote about a book that was not free. It is the second volume of Proust. The first volume is free and that is how they hook you! : )

Thank you for considering my blog. It appeals to a narrow readership, but those who like out of copyright books have nowhere else to go to find books that are not the same top 100 and which have been vetted for conversion problems.

by mr6n8 on 18. February 2013 - 9:21  (105517)

I already have that site listed at 97 Places For Free Kindle eBooks Online (Legally) as Kindle Classics Blogspot.

Also in the main page 672 Places For Free eBooks Online under the same name.

If you want the name, or description, changed let me know.

Thanks for maintaining that site.


by Anupam on 17. February 2013 - 14:09  (105498)

Steve, I think you should also make a similar consolidated list of all your torrent articles. It will really be helpful to find them in one place, and users will become more aware of them :).

by mr6n8 on 17. February 2013 - 18:27  (105502)

I will think about that. I have to figure out the best way to show.


by benedict1 on 17. February 2013 - 13:38  (105496)

Maybe I am the only one who cares but I sure would like to see a category for "Philosophy Books" The are NOT "Religion and Spirituality" books. That may be too technical a division for many of the website owners you list but it would sure help. There is a vast difference between the topic of revealed faith and belief compared to reason. If fact St Thomas Aquinas carefully worked out the difference at the start of his Summa Theologiae 800 years ago based on sound, deductive reasoning.

Pardon the lecture; I could have just said "Gee Whiz! A category for Philosopy Books would be nice." :)

I also appreciate the hard work to collect this sort of thing. It is not easy to keep up to the minute with it because websites come and go. Thank you!

by mr6n8 on 17. February 2013 - 14:00  (105497)

Somewhere in the back of my mind is the thought that I started a Philosophy page, but could not find enough sites. Reasoning is not that popular.

I will take another look around after this round of updates as it is a good area that deserves a page.

Thanks. I am always looking for new ideas.


EDIT: I take that back. A quick search finds quite a few sites. I will get a page up soon.

by bwoods on 18. February 2013 - 12:52  (105519)

"Reasoning is not that popular."

LOL I love it!

by mr6n8 on 20. February 2013 - 19:47  (105621)

I am glad someone gets my humor.

Great list of free books. Libraries help our minds to stay fresh. Knowledge is power. But the right use of that power where good and evil divide.

by pratomorone on 17. February 2013 - 11:40  (105489)

hello...Thanx to all the editors for such a bang up job!!! Wondering if anyone out there has a list of ebooks in foreign languages. My wife is Russian and I speak Italian.

Thanx in advance!

by mr6n8 on 17. February 2013 - 12:01  (105490)

There are some reputable looking sites here for Russian Public Domain works - many at Google and Gutenberg


A few russian audiobooks at a site I know to be reputable

by Anupam on 16. February 2013 - 14:20  (105465)

Good thinking to consolidate them at a single place :). Keep up the excellent work! :)

by mr6n8 on 17. February 2013 - 11:17  (105488)

I missed this post.


Also, Jojo did a nice job fixing it up to look better.


by Anupam on 17. February 2013 - 13:24  (105495)

He is a genius, ain't he :D.
