Best websites for free ebooks

free ebook downloads
 Technology is making things simple. Now a days most of the books are available on electronic formats like PDF, epub etc. 
But finding free and open e-books is still an issue. So Geeky Brains is giving a list of websites where you can download free E-books

1.project Gutenberg : it is the number one open e-book resource available on the web.Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and still working in this project to make e-books open. More than 40,000 e-books are available for free download. there are many options to download the e-books like e-pub, kindle,html formats.
You can also download your e-book into dropbox directly(need more dropbox space for free ?)
You may also try ManyBooks which is basically working from the database of Gutenberg. It gives more options for downloading the e-books in different formats

2.OpenLibrary : One web page for every book ever published. This site is especially for classic book lovers. The user interface is good with a digital reader feel in the browser itself. It can read the text aloud for you.

3.BookYards : Try searching for your book here. you will get some good downloads and resources here.

4. Daily Lit : Choose a book here and read it directly in your mailbox. The Daily Lit team will send your book in parts to your mail so that you can read it on your workstation or mobile.
good idea. Isn't it ?

5.Get Free eBooks : scroll down and see right side panel for categories. You will find some latest collection here.

6.e-book directory is a good website which gives download links to various e-books for free.This is not an illegal website as it provides homepage link for each book to download.

7.The Online Books page : over 1 million books are listed here for free. Some of the banned books are also included in this site.
8.Questia : you can browse for some free books here.

9.ObookO : Sign in and download your favorite e-book in epub format.Scroll down and see on the left panel to choose your desired category.

10.FeedBooks : Although all the books are not free here, still there are thousands of books which we can download for free. 
11.Bartleby : You can get fiction, non-fiction and reference e-books for free.

Let us know if you have some good resources for  free e-books. We will update here, along with your name.

[Update]: As commented by one of the reader I am adding 2 more website for free e-books .
