There are sites that give away eBooks. Now if they are worth your time to read, I don’t know. So I have have decided to review all the links that have free ebooks and rate them by time worthiness or not. ( I want to thank a fellow Yahoo grouper for bringing this to my attention. She is great resource, thanks Chrissey.)
Some of these links I found here are from here. Others I have added from author sites.
