There’s only one thing better than cheap ebooks, and that’s free ebooks. Redditors know this—ok, almost all of us know this, but the moderators, contributors, and denizens of /r/FreeEBOOKS have marked out their territory and they spend their time doing the good work of sharing current free ebook offerings.
If you are not a Redditor, the quick-moving pace of the subreddit might seem overwhelming. There are many free ebook offerings, many of them being posted and promoted by aspiring authors. This can be a mixed blessing—digging through a week’s worth of posts can take a significant amount of time
Illegal file sharing is strictly forbidden, so don’t go in there expecting to find the latest New York Times bestsellers. But if you are patient and pay attention over time, you will be surprised at the mix of ebooks being shared.
The best way to keep abreast of the churn is to use chtorrr’s IFTTT applet. The applet collects the last 24 hours of /r/FreeEBOOK posts and emails them in a nice orderly list. You can browse through the offerings in a minute or two instead of digging through the subreddit.
