Great Free eBook Resource

Henry David Thoreau

Over the weekend, I rediscovered a great resource for free public domain ebooks, a huge library of them.  The resource is “Wikisource: Authors” and here’s the link to the index page of authors.  So I spent a happy evening last night downloading to my tablet EPUB formatted copies of several books I want to read.  I wanted EPUB formatting for my device but they also had MOBI for Kindle and PDF too, I believe.  I stocked up so today I began reading John Steinbeck’s Tortilla Flat which I haven’t read before.   I also filled out my collection of Thoreau’s work.  Hope you have as much fun as I did finding books you’ve always wanted to read.  And, btw, the books I downloaded look really good and work well, too, on my device (not all the books I’ve gotten from other sources on the internet do).

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I’m struggling to stop myself getting too carried away downloading. I’m the same with Librivox too!

    1. Yes, I understand that struggle very well. It’s like being a kid in a toy store—I want it all. I have a desktop computer now which has plenty of memory but when I had only a laptop I really had to restrain my impulse to download everything I thought I wanted. And then I would ask myself: When exactly will I read this 1000 page book I want to download? That sort of helped. Hey, thanks, tinker, for stopping in. Hope to see you around here again.

        1. Thank you, candiced, for your comments. I love books. Right now I’m trying to read War And Peace but it might take me a year to finish it. haha.
