    While playing with google i seen a site where you can read and download over 33,000 ebooks free of cost.

    No Cost or Freedom?


    The word free in the English language does not distinguish between free of charge and freedom.
    Free of charge means that you don't have to pay for the book you received.
    Freedom denotes that you may do as you like with the book you received.
    This distinction is immaterial if you just want to read a book privately, but it becomes of utmost importance if you want to work with the book:

    • you are a teacher and want to use the book in class,
    • you wrote a thesis about the book and want to distribute the book along with your thesis,
    • you have a literary web site and want to distribute the book to your audience,
    • or you are a writer and want to adapt the book for the stage.
    If the book you got is just free of charge, you may do none of the above things. You may not even make a copy of the book and give it to your best friend. But if the book you got is free as in freedom you may do anything you like with that book. Clearly free as in freedom beats free of charge.



    Enjoy :driver:

    I.M? Of course you can't. Most of the ebooks are book content from years back..from as far as 1900 and beyond. Internet not yet existed then. :)

    It's a good place to find evergreen subjects, like love and relationship, gardening, etc, and you'll find a lot of novels and literatures there too.

    This is pretty sweet, thanks given!

    I'm pretty sure I'll figure out a way to use this, not necessarily IM or BH related. I'll naturally share it with this amazing community ;)
