If, like me, you don't need anymore books to read, but still can't resist more books to read, and if, like me, you don't like paying for books, and if you have some kind of e-reader, you might be interested in these free e-book resources.
Bookshout is a service that sends readers a daily email with at least one link to a free book and several discounted ones. You have to install their reader (at least I did, using an iPad 3). I haven't downloaded too many books from them because the selection skews Christian. The few I have selected are classics, like Agatha Christie and Jane Austen. I've only read one so far, Mentalpause, which was meh.
I've had more luck with NetGalley (thanks for the tip, Sarah Sawyers-Lovett), which offers new titles, that you request from publishers' offerings. There are categories to browse. You create a profile, that I guess publishers can review before deciding whether or not to grant your request. I set up a profile, and I'm good about reviewing the books I download, so I've been getting everything I asked for. NetGalley requires another (free) e-reader app, but whatever. I've read three, almost four books so far. One was great, two were okay, and one I didn't bother finishing, but I think I'll get better about choosing as I go along.
I also borrow e-books from NYPL like I'm on fire and they're water, but I figure you already know about that, right? You'll need two more apps to read these suckers, but, again, whatever. Overdrive (standard library e-reader) is more highly evolved than Bluefire (NetGalley) and BookShout!, and 3M (standard library e-Reader) is about as sophisticated as Bluefire.
