Free books for your iPad, Kindle, Nook, Reader, PC and Mac
Article thanks to Kim Komando at A link to her site is provided below:

There's never been a better time for those who love to read. In a matter of minutes, you can download hundreds or even thousands of books and take them with you anywhere.
Though ebooks are often less expensive than their paper counterparts, they still cost money. You might pay as much as $5 to $10 for a single e-book. Depending on how fast you read, these charges can get out of control.
However, free ebooks are just a click away on these sites. History, biographies, romance and mysteries - it's all here! Plus, you don't even need an e-reader to read most of the books you find.
FreeBook Sifter - If you know what type of e-book you're looking for, this site makes it easy to find. You can browse multiple categories at once or use the site's powerful search to find the perfect book. The site adds hundreds of new, free books every day.
The site only pull titles from Amazon, so you do need to use the Kindle ecosystem. That doesn't mean you have to buy one of Amazon's ereaders - though they are one of my favorites. You can download a Kindle app for your computer, smartphone or tablet and read the e-books that way.
Feedbooks - If you're not looking for any type of story in particular, this site is a good place to browse. It accepts original books from any author. It has thousands of exciting new authors that are exploring new styles of storytelling.
You'll find everything from bizarre science-fiction stories to intense horror tales. Search with caution, though. Some of the books push the boundaries of good taste and have racy titles or covers. This site isn't a good place for unsupervised kids.
Project Gutenberg - If you're looking for something a little safer, check this site out. It has thousands of classic books that are in the public domain. New titles are added daily.
In addition to free books, this site offers sheet music, speeches and even music and videos. Several books are offered as audiobooks if you prefer to listen instead of read. It's a wonderful tool for researchers and students.
eBooksRead - This site is a delight for researchers and history buffs. Not only does it offer more than 320,000 e-books, but it has classic texts, statistics and essays
You can browse the site by keywords, authors or titles and download in multiple formats. You're sure to find the file format that works with the gadget you want to use to read.
Overdrive - Many of these sites focus on older books. If you want to read the latest best sellers, you should try this site. It taps into library databases to help you borrow books for free.
Of course, this means you won't have the book forever. However, you can return or check out books right from Overdrive's app. You don't need to take to a trip to the library or worry about overdue book charges.
