2,000,000 free e-books from the 4th Annual World eBook Fair

2,000,000 free e-books from the 4th Annual World eBook Fair. Free downloads for a month.

Mostly reference, technical and government stuff, but also some random non-copyright fiction.

Mostly in PDF format.

This is a company that generally charges for what are in part (if not in whole) freely available PDFs from other organizations not designed for viewing on digital readers.

Basically a subscription search engine for content that won't be usable for most of us.

Already covered and dismissed in an earlier thread.

Two earlier threads, I believe.

And yes, they're not offering anything but links to sites that give it away for free.

This is the third thread on this, and in this Forum. I am therefore posting my same message as I posted in the other two threads:

In the interests of full disclosure: This is an organization that charges money. Whether PDFs are useful to you will have to be your decision.

Quoted:

"Our goal is to provide Free public access for a month to 2 Million eBooks. During the rest of the year you may continue to download your selection of about 500,000 PDF eBooks by joining the World Public Library. Annual membership is only $8.95 per year."
