I’m Jumping in on the first topic – Where to Find eBooks Online
Outside of the well known designated retail purchase sites I find ebooks at ChristianBook , links to inspy ‘on sale’ + ‘Free’ daily via subscriptions to Gospel eBooks, Bookbub,Kobo ebooks, BN, and ChaptersIndigo plus the many FB pages and groups that post current ebooks offered both free and sale priced.  The Vessel Project is one of those.

FHC is part of the Tyndale Rewards Points program  By participating in 5 min surveys on likes and dislikesregarding books, or helping in choosing a book cover, you gain points that quickly add up to give you options of free books.Here’s THE LINK to check it out and begin collecting your own rewards!*


*One ebook source coming to mind is directly from publishers’ websites and their FB pages.I’ve noticed many offer ebooks and  excerpts as gifts for readers to sample and hopefully win over new readers.Their monthly newsletters often include author and title giveaway promos, along withnew releases, book and bookclub intros of authors works in all genres.Here’s a minute number of eg Tyndale’s E-Book Extra,   Choc Lit, LoveReading, Rosetta BooksDestiny Image Publishers, Moody Collective, Baker Publishing Group
Each of these sites add MANY ebooks to my ereader each month.

Another option?  Purchase Direct from author websites.Signing up for author email subscriptions often includes an intro to their work via the giftof some item of their writing – eg enovella, writing tips or an ebookHelpful informed decision whether or not this author is as promo’d on many publicity sites.
Authors also promo their writing on facebook and through FB ebook giveaway events.

*

Audio books are an entirely different book option I will include hereas the access is often  included on other retail book sites, Book Depository carries audiobooks – [Thanks for your orders that support FHC –and NO delivery charge or minimum purchase required]

Some specific audiobook distributors in addition?  downpour, oasis audio, christianaudio [offers 1 free audiobook/month] post hypnotic press

*Free audiobooks available at ambling books, LibriVox, are 2 sources coming to mind.

Currently, Audible’s FREE CLASSIC LOVE POEMS

My response HERE

Libraries have wide selection of ebooks and audiobooks –Overdrive and Hoopla their main providers – wherever you are, you can check online library catalogs for titles you’re interested in accessing.
*

If you’re interested in more than just reading enjoyment, there is reviewing as an avenue for ebook access.  Many publishers make their authors’ new releases or upcoming releases available in exchange for your commitment to public reviews within a time frame, on your blog as well as multiple retail sites and creating buzz for the book/author.
*

LibraryThing offers a monthly list of books/ebooks, available for signing up with requests of books/ebooks in your interest area at Early Reviewers Check publisher sites for review commitments before going into overload !*Publishers also make ebooks available for publicity tours via blogs.You may note their contact details on many book blogs hosting a particular title during a designated blog tour promoting a new release and author on a week or month long schedule of blog appearances.
*
Giveaways are another way to find ebooks and entering the contest may add to yourcollection.  Goodreads have several book groups directed at book/ebook giveaways,some blogs have weekly draws and linkys offering the option to signup giveaway offers.I have a Pinterest board designated specifically for Book/ebook Giveaways HERE that includes the option to add any books you’d like to sell, swap or trade.
Message me your email to be added to pin to the board.

*
I look forward to hearing your suggestions and recommendations in comments.  There may be entirely new options we haven’t yet discovered.  I’ll update my info as I find more sources and as you offer links.Thanks for sharing!

  1. Thank you!

    Most of these are new to me.

    There are 2 more I can think of.

    (1) Inspired Reads
    All Christian books. Low-cost and Free

    (2) Bookbub.com
    Several genres. When you register select genre(s) you are interested in. I chose two that are Christian. You'll have to look through the not so long list. You'll chose a password then be guided to a choice of low-cost and free books, according to your likes. You may also look at the other genres through links on the side and may update your genres at any time.

  2. These are good tips; I have received a few free books from Librarything.com over the years. When I get a free book I review it at goodreads, amazon, librarything and sometimes christianbook.com
    I get free or cheap ebooks at bookbub.com (I hope that is the right name!) and also Facebook readers groups I am in alert me to free or on sale ebooks. So much to read!
