    I’ve found brushing up on my Google search skills helps find free ebooks directly off of the search engine. (Well you often end up at free ebook site, but straight at the page of the book you want).

    Fabulous resource. I’ve bookmarked it and will stop back often.


  23. Free-ebooks is ok, and PDF search engine too. They can be very hit or miss though. I’m wondering why my website isn’t on this list…? Only kidding…nice list.


  24. Another one worth mentioning is PDFGallery.net, a new up and comer. Features mostly design/web related pdfs.


  25. Thanks for the list! I didn’t know most of them.

    Good list! I’ve got a few more bookmarks to add to my collection. Out of the ones I know, Scribd is definitely my favorite, in part because of their recent move from their proprietary, flash-based viewer to HTML5. The new viewer is very nice.
