Places to get ebooks
Apart from your local library (for example Brisbane City Council free ebooks and audiobooks), here are some useful sites:
- Project Gutenberg -- the same guy that invented the movable type printing press also made this website for distributing books that are out of copyright, I guess.
- Standard EBooks -- beautifully formatted free ebooks.
- Open Library -- part of the Internet Archive. (which is great!)
- Google ebook store - access to the topselling free ebooks
There is a system called Library Genesis or LibGen, currently available at https://libgen.is/ which allows you to find ebooks. It's similar to sci-hub.
