    There is also Standard Ebooks. https://standardebooks.org/ The site has a lot of books that are long out of copywrite.
  • Just got my first kindle ever! Loving it so far

    I also recommend to you Standard Ebooks, which also has Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca at least. They take free ebooks + edit them to look more pleasant on modern ereading devices. And of course they have a ton of other awesome books.

    I have a Remarkable 2 (and love it), but one downside is that it only takes DRM-free books for it's e-reader. I wish the company would partner with some publishers so that I could buy books to read on the device.

    At least we have Standard Ebooks[1] in the meantime!

    Da ne bih prevodio on što piše na početnoj strani: https://standardebooks.org/ Long story short: trude se da izdanja budu kvalitetna (u tehiničkom, tipografskom i stilskom smislu). Ali da, preuzimaju tekstove s gutenberga.

  • Other books?
    reddit.com/r/kindle | 2021-03-24
    Yes. StoryBundle, Smashwords, Tor, Angry Robot. Standard Ebooks. You can sometimes get them directly from author’s websites like Diane Duane.
  • So im starting to run out of space for physical books so I got an old kindle to try. My question is why are ebooks so expensive?
    reddit.com/r/books | 2021-03-23
    I refuse to buy the eBook if its more expensive than the paperback. But Project Gutenberg, Standard eBooks, and volunteer read content at LibriVox has got so much free content that I hardly buy paperbacks unless its a gift, or as I take my kiddo book shopping something catches my fancy. There's about 5,000 years of free content, get wrecked pay-to-read ebooks
  • I have so many physical books and absolutely love them, but they do take up space and are expensive. I’m beginning to wonder about the benefits of eReaders? 📚
    reddit.com/r/books | 2021-03-23
    The books you buy on the eReader don't need to compete for space on your bookshelf. Plus with resources like Project Gutenberg, Standard eBooks, and volunteer read content at LibriVox you have gobs and gobs of free stuff at your fingertips. With the gyms shut down I decided to get miles in by listening to audio-books. Most eReaders also have audio-jacks for audio-books as well, but I just listen to my books on tape on my iPhone.
  • Questions on eReaders: Kobo vs Kindle
    reddit.com/r/books | 2021-03-23
    What I mostly like about Kobo is related to borrowing books from the library and the many offers on their store, let alone their support for open standards, I mean, epub is so easy to handle and you basically never need to convert or tweak it like so many Amazon customers report when they buy from different sources. Also, don't forget about the kepub format: aside from books bought on their store, classics books like the ones from standardebooks.org are really a pleasure to read on Kobo.
