Free or discounted e-books

Where do I find them? Don't care about the format. I'll use Calibre to convert.

Check out this site, basically loading files from file share sites, safer than torrents (no seeding, remote access, any of that B.S.):

Good link. Thanks. I was checking out some of the titles, and spotted James P. Hogan's Inherit the Stars.

GREAT read. I read it years ago, a few times since.

Are you able to actually get what you want? I found our library very difficult to use.

Yes. They even have an electronic "line" where you can put your name on a book you want and it won't allow the asshat with it to just re check it out, they have to get back in line.

Most new books they have on epub format. We have a great library.

The electronic line for mine didn't work so well, maybe I should go back and try them out again.

The average cost to buy from them is also reasonable.
