Calibre and DRM Free Books

I have been very impressed with Calibre, a free open source application to manage eBooks.



    • Smashwords has books
      • in many languages,
      • both free and non-free (Free as in Beer)
      • in many formats
        • Online Reading (HTML, good for sampling in web browser)
        • Epub (Apple iPad/iBooks, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and most e-reading apps including Stanza, Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, others)
        • Kindle (.mobi for Kindle devices and Kindle apps)
        • PDF (good for reading on PC, or for home printing)
        • RTF (readable on most word processors)
        • LRF (Use only for older model Sony Readers that don’t support .epub)
        • Palm Doc (PDB) (for Palm reading devices)
        • Plain Text (download) (flexible, but lacks much formatting)
        • Plain Text (view) (viewable as web page)
    • Some Free eBooks
