Is there a thread

Is there a thread that someone can direct me to that lists places you can buy,get for free or otherwise download books for the kobo. No torrent sites please though
I just returned my 1gen one tonight and Im pre-ordering the new one tomorrow but I'd like to start browsing sights to locate books to download.
I know the Sony forum on here has a ongoing thread so I'm hoping the Kobo one does too or knows they are pretty much the same.

TIA
Fiona

Look up where it say "wiki"

Under "E"books you'll find places to go go.

Enjoy.

The Baen site is awesome. I've been working my way through the free library and picked up some of their pay books as well (no drm, multiformats available, looks like everything they publish is there, a shopping cart and they even accept paypal!).

If you are interested in new releases nothing beats the webscription. You can choose to buy bundles of books as they ar released/ have been released (great archive!) I haven't found any better deal that 4-6 new books for $15!

Not sure I would shell out the extra money to see an ARC (advance reader copy) instead of waiting for the few months to see a normal edition but hey to each their own.

For a larger selection of free Baen SF&F get the free Baen CD Library. You can access the CD's (ISO, zip of files, or on-line) at http://baencd.thefifthimperium.com/

One minor issue is that the older CDs do not have ePubs, but MS Reader files (.lit) convert to ePub very nicely and easily with Calibre.
