Everyone loves freebies, who not? When talk about free eBooks, we may think of Amazon Kindle daily free books and Gutenberg public domains. When we mention Apple, the expensive price and personality call to our mind, but never including cheap or even free.
When we enter iTunes iBookstore, we can hardly find a free eBook except those public domains, but how many of us want to read them?
What if I told you that there are thousands of free books for iPad but you don't know where to find them? I am not kidding, and I am just going to tell where and how to find and download them.

These sites at least meet following conditions:
1) Provide ePub and PDF books;
3) Free to download, not just free for a short preview;
4) No classical public domain because you can download them in many places for free.
Honestly speaking, this site is not a pure free site: For free registered account, it only provides 5 books to be downloaded per month, and if you want to get unlimited quantity, you have to pay $7.95 per month.
For free account, only TXT and PDF are available; and there is an extra Mobipocket format for paid account.
