Anyhow, try out this website if you are interested in getting free ebooks: http://www.e-literati.de/
I believe the website is German, but it could be Dutch. I get those two languages mixed up sometimes when I see them in written form. I'm sure awieatti will set me straight as to which language it is, though! Anyway, it has English language books too, and links to Amazon.com. The books are usually free for 24 hours, then the price goes up. I've been trying new authors this way. I've learned to be picky and vet the books thoroughly as possible before I download them to my Kindle. I read the first few pages and I check the reviews. I'm especially interested in the three-star or less reviews because that's where you'll get honesty. I want to know ahead of time if the book has formatting or punctuation/spelling issues, or if it loses momentum or has a big, nasty, surprise, brutal rape scene hiding in the middle of the book, like what happened to me recently with a book I thoroughly regret reading, not to mention paying for. (I will review that book when I can face it again, but right now I'm too mad at the author to allow it back into my head)
One more thing: They usually show two books for each day, one in German and one in English. You have to click on the book in order to unlock the list of the other books. I didn't realize that when I was new to the site and if I wasn't interested in the first English-language book I saw on a given day and therefore didn't click on it, I missed all the others and didn't find them until the next day, by which time they had gone up in price. So even if you don't like the looks of the first book, click on it anyway, and a lot more will be revealed.
I've found a few jewels on e-literati, and I hope you will, too.
