Favorite Free Book Sources

For those who like reading classic books available in the public domain, what are your faovrite sites to download books?  I like the big daddy of them all, Project Gutenberg, http://www.gutenberg.org/. I've also dabbled in epubbooks.com. Any other hidden (legal!) gems?

Re: Favorite Free Book Sources

Baen has a free eLibrary at http://www.baen.com/.  It's mostly SF and Fantasy.

 

Also, if you do an internet search for "free Baen CD" you can download ISO or Zip files of CD's containing free eBooks that Baen used to give away in some of their hardcover editions and encouraged people to share them.  There are hundreds of eBooks on them. 

 

If you sign up for the mailing list at http://www.phoenixpick.com/ you will get a code every month for a free eBook they are highlighting.

Re: Favorite Free Book Sources

I've used Feedbbooks.com and Manybooks.net. Both have a good selection of free or inexpensive ebooks from a variety of genres.
