Introduction

Books iconLooking for some e-book and cannot find it? It can be really time consuming and frustrating to endlessly search all over internet to find a digital form of some specific publication. 

Most free ebooks on internet will be found in common PDF format, which is a long time standard for digital documents and easily printed or read on all platforms with PDF reader utility. 

However, ePUB format for ebooks is a common sight nowadays, especially on internet or various online bookshops.

EPUB is the official standard of the International Digital Publishing Forum that is free and open source. It is reflowable (word wrap) and supports resizable text for different screens. It can contain both raster and vector images and embedded metadata. There is also support for DRM, CSS Styling and alternative renditions in the same file. All in all, it will soon be one of the most widespread formats used for ebooks and other digital publications.

You can also find other digital formats, but they are mostly commercial and meant only for special readers (like Amazon Kindle), hence you probably won't find many free source sites for them.

To save you time, we have prepared a list of some of the most important web sites that contains electronic publications for free. All of these top free ebook websites have large libraries of categorized books usually in PDF, ePUB, MOBI, or even some other digital format.
