Just because we love tech, doesn’t mean we don’t still love reading a good book. In this next chapter of our “free stuff online” series, we will be taking a look at where to download the best free E-Books.

Where to Download Free E-Books


Bookboon is a fantastic resource, especially for those who are looking for textbooks and self-improvement / educational material. They offer a range for students and a range for business people looking to up-skill and learn.


If it is New York Times bestsellers you’re looking for then you should click on over to Overdrive. They offer a huge range of fiction, including mainstream titles and recent releases. What’s the catch? You need to be a member of your local library. Overdrive works in collaboration with over 30 000 public libraries in more than 40 countries.


Also known as Library Genius, LibGen gives you access to over 3 million books, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as comics, articles and essays. The search engine doesn’t offer much in the way of frills and fuss (it looks like it comes straight out of the 90’s) but you will probably find what you are looking for here if you have a specific title in mind.

Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg is a non-profit which is powered by volunteers who share the common goal of bringing literature to as many people as possible through the creation and distribution of E-Books. They are definitely worth a browse for the avid reader.

Open Library

Just what it sounds like, Open Library offers you a wide range of books to choose from, and you can add to the list by uploading your own books, too! They are an open, editable library catalogue who are building towards the astounding goal of creating a web page for every book ever published.
