>E-Book Resources


You probably remember that I bought a Kindle e-reader in November. I do enjoy my gadget, but I still read more printed books. I read 8-10 crime novels per month, and my principle is that I go for the cheapest possible copy. I understand if some writers grit their teeth when they hear about all the used books I buy, but then professional reviewers get all their review copies for free.

I know I am not the only e-book reader who is looking for new ways to get around the fact that some  e-books are more expensive than the paperback (typically $ 10-13 for Danish customers), and no matter what the retailers say, that is not a reasonable price. [Customers outside UK cannot buy e-books from e.g. Amazon UK or Waterstones]

So far I have found Smashwords, a wonderful site where many writers upload their older works at extremely fair prices.

If you are looking for free classics, ManyBooks.Net is the place to go, and if you are interested in review copies directly from the publishers, you may join NetGalley.

Where do you get your e-books? 
Have you found resources you will share with me and my readers?
