If you own an e-reader, or just a simple computer or smart phone, you can find a virtual gold rush of free e-books to download. You can read these on your e-readers, smart phones, or your personal computer. The main complaint about all of these free books is that people figure that anything that is given away cannot be all that good. It is true that most free e-books are self-published. There are many professional authors who self-publish who produce very high quality work. Some of them are well known or are becoming well known. Some of the authors are not very well know, but they hope to establish themselves as fan favorites. Actually, some classics and older books have expired copyrights, and they have moved into the public domain. There are organizations that accept donations and use volunteers in order to publish these books so people can download and enjoy them.
