There is one thing I love more than a <i>good book</i>, and that is a <i>good <b>FREE</b> book</i>.<br /><br />But wait a minute — does such a thing even exist?<br /><br />The average consumer will say “no”. Free ebooks are rare and they tend to be of low quality.<br /><h3>Well, that’s what the average consumer thinks!</h3><br />This book will give you everything you need so that you can find <b>Free books and audiobooks</b> in any subject. Don’t think this is possible? Think again…<br /><br />An ebook is a digital good that has no manufacturing costs. This means that the author or publisher will not incur any costs if you get a free copy. In fact the publisher may have something to <br /><br />gain from you by giving away the book to you for no money.<br /><br />In fact, authors will <u>THANK YOU</u> for downloading their ebook.<br /><br />Since authors have to pay their bills too, free ebook opportunities are only available to those that know where to look.<br /><br />In this book, I will let you know how to <i>search</i>, <i>find</i> and <i>download</i> free ebooks. And the best part? You will also make some new friends in the process.<br />
