I just got a nook. I've been searching for good free epub/pdf books.

My first download was book 3 of Garth Nix's Abhorsen Trilogy. I'd read the first two quite awhile ago but had never come across the last book in any of my used book haunts. You can get the whole trilogy - free in pdf format HERE.

Mostly, all I've I'm finding are the non-copyrighted classics and such.

Anyways, any one have any links to good free ebooks?

The only site I know of is Project Gutenberg. They only carry things outside of copyright, but those are probably the only legal free e-books you'll find readily available. The only other free e-book I know if is Machine of Death, which is a collection of short stories around a common theme that I've posted about before.

I'm sure you could find almost anything through torrent. I've found dozens of ebooks with one simple search. I know you can get them but dont know how difficult it would be to port to your reader-thingy

Yeah, I've found ones through torrent too. I'd rather not use it but instead hope to find books that the author or publisher has made free...or cheap.

Also, the Nookcolor has a book sharing program that is all legal-like that allows you to share copywrited content with other Nook users.

Getting books to the nook is done through a cord. The reader basically just acts like an external drive. You put whatever you want on it. It reads most standard file types. If you buy books or other content through barnes and noble, they'll ship um to your nook via wifi.
