As the title says - I'm after free books that you think are good on the iBooks app.

Sorry if I've posted in the wrong section.


Thanks,
Peter James :)


P.S. I'm open to any genres.

It's really depend on what kind of books you're into. The following are free books I have on my iBooks

  • The Economic Consequences of the Peace - John Maynard Keynes
  • Myths and Legends of Ancient Greece and Rome - E.M. Berens
  • The Art of War - Sun Zi
  • The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

He didn't ask for stolen merchandize. If he would've ask for free food deals you wouldn't chime in about the food you stole from McDonalds, would you?

Haven't played with iBooks (3G at the moment, haven't upgraded the thing to iOS4) but I do have BookShelf - and I like the selection of free books I can get to at http://www.webscription.net. Webscription is primarly to promote Baen's pay-for ebooks (reasonably priced, and no DRM!) but they do have the Free Library section.

What's cool about that is the authors choose to offer those up for free :)

Don't know if it would be possible to get it downloaded directly, but if you can add off your computer you can download from there in something like six different formats.

Try these -

Painless by Derek Ciccone and
Ransom X by IB Holder

Bother are recent releases and well written, interesting stories. A little minor editing and they are as good as if not better than many paid books.

Recommendation

There is a free series on iBooks by Nicky Charles. The first book is called "The Mating" and the second book is "The Keeping" and the third book is supposed to be released soon, its called "The Finding." The series is great, reminds me a lot of twilight because there are werewolves involved. You wont be able to put it down. Note that there are parts where it gets a bit too graphic with relations between couples but if you don't mind that then you'll love the books.

I'd download the Stanza app, and browse the site "Drinkmalk"

It enables me to download ebooks of the books I've already physically got (Why would I pay twice for the same book?)

It's pretty nifty :)
