These sites all provide free Ebooks that you can download to view on a Ebook reader or on your PC. Some of these sites offer both free and pay-for ebooks so check before you download. You will also need to check that the book is in the correct format. The Kindle supports Mobi, pdf, html and text files, other EbookReaders may require other formats such as ePub format (used on Sony Ebook readers).
Audio books are usually available as MP3 files or as ogg files (open format without patent restrictions). These can be listened to on your PC, using a portable media player or the Kindle supports the MP3 format.
