I am slightly disappointed with www.free-ebooks.net for trying to rip off fellows Kindle-ers, but it might be useful for someone, so I will hide my judging stare away.
I have many problems with this site. The first one is the domain name – “free ebooks” is kind of a way overboard name for a site with such limited availability of the actual free e-books.
Another issue with this site is that .MOBI format is available only for an upgraded membership. They have e-books in .PDF format for no charge, but here is the catch – you can download only 5 books per month for free.
One more minor annoyance: they require users to register for downloading e-books.
Also, the site’s content is poorly edited – some book titles have typos, sometimes authors’ names are missing and so on.
So, yes, the site is limiting from all ends. However, the selection and variety of the books is quite large. The library is not restricted by the usual classics, to the availability of which we are so used to. I enjoyed the quantity of “100 Recipes of Something-Something” type of cook books: 111 Egg Recipes, 300 Chicken Recipes, 300 Recipes for the Grill and so on. I also liked the selection in the Tutorials section. There are books like: Build Your Own Home Theatre, An Introduction to Pipe Band Drumming, or even How to Create a Garden Pond.
Hence, if you are looking for a very specific book, this is a good back-up source.

Hi. You can also find many free kindle books as well (and not the normal public domain ones, but temporarily reduced commercial books) on some 100% free, no strings attached sites.
The lists change daily, and you can find the free ebooks for Kindle at sites like http://www.daily-free-ebooks.com or kolorbooks.appspot.com.
Dear Daily Free EBooks promoter(?),
Thank you for the links. I do, however, have a question regarding these two sites.
It appears to me that Daily Free Ebooks only links to the temp. promotional e-books available on Amazon. How is it better than going directly to http://www.amazon.com/s/?node=2279458011? Considering the fact, that Amazon has more e-books reviews available? The same question goes about Kolorbooks.
