Free E-books

Do you have a Kindle, or Nook, or iPad? Even you don't, here are ten sights you can go to to get free e-books to read. Also Barnes, Amazon and a few others offer some free e-books, but they are not the popular bestsellers.
  1. Authorama
  6. Project Gutenberg

Here is a very slick and flexible reader. E-Readers are proving to be all the rage  and here is one called Skiff from Skiff LLC. Flexible screens have been promised for the past 3 or 4 years, and now we actually have one.

With an unannounced released date or price, the flexible Skiff will deliver content on Sprint's 3G network.

We found that the e-reader, which uses resistive touch, had better and faster reactions than the similarly sized Que from Plastic Logic (which is capacitive). Both are basically the size of a sheet of paper and are marketed at readers of traditional newspapers and magazines.

The Que will come to the market in April, retailing in two versions that cost $649 or $799. I have been waiting for this for a few years, since I first saw the prototype.
