There are thousands of free e-books online. You might not know it if you don’t know where to look for them, though.

To show you some of the ways you can find these freebies — and to give you a taste of the variety of free e-books out there — we’ve rounded up 10 you can get for free right now.

The following 10 e-books were free from various sources as of the time this article was written, but that can change at any time. So if you are interested in any of them but can’t read them immediately, save them to your e-reader or other device now if possible.

No e-reader? No problem

If you don’t have an e-reader, don’t let that stop you. Many free e-books can be read online or downloaded to your computer.

For example, if you fancy a freebie that’s only available in a Kindle e-reader format, you can read it on various devices using the free Kindle app. The same goes for e-books formatted for Kobo and Nook e-readers.

I explain this further in “How to Enjoy E-books Without Buying an E-Reader.”
