    Hey Guys,
    I just figured I could list some sites I have been using with my Ipad (16gb) in order to help you in your quest for Epubs. I know that Ibooks Project Gutenberg books are OK but I have run in to some issues with cover art and formatting, and prefer some of the sites below!

    Add your own sites to the list!


    Feedbooks:
    http://www.feedbooks.com/
    • Just Like Project Guenberg but has better formatting / cover art
    • Can download 1 of 5 different formats (for those of you that have multiple ereaders)
    • Can drag and drop the Epub files into itues
    • includes cover art for almost all the books
    • Has free books from unknown authors

    Epubbooks
    http://www.epubbooks.com/
    • Great selection
    • dont have to register to download
    • tons of novels new and old
    • 100% free
    • Some hard to find books

    Google Books
    http://books.google.com/
    • Only some free ebook downloads
    • Check the classics section
    • Alot of paid books
    • Includes cover art for 90% of the books

    My favorite place for ebooks is the technical ebooks group on Usenet. An amazing amount of stuff. :)

    You mentioned it briefly, but I don't think it hurts to point out that Apple's iBookstore itself contains tens of thousands of free books ready to easily load onto your iPad.



    Additionally, I would suggest the Internet Archive with it's wealth of public domain resources.

    Convert to ePub if they're not, then drag into iTunes. :)

    How do you convert books to ePub?

    Also, can you put books ordered from Amazon's Kindle Store into iBooks?

    For some great current scifi check out the Baen free library. Great authors. I highly recommend David Weber's Honorverse series.
