Free E Books
You could check out Project Guttenberg ( http://www.gutenberg.org/ ) which has free classics. Also, Baen Free library has some free sci-fi/fantasy novels ( http://www.baen.com/library/ ).
"Books on the knob" (http://blog.booksontheknob.org/) which is put together by a woman who lists all the temporarily free ebooks from Amazon, B&N, Apple, and publishers. If you get them while they are free, they are yours forever...
