Q. My daughter is headed back to school and I was thinking about getting her an eReader. I'd like to put some of her favorite books on it first, but I don't know where to find them. Where can I find some inexpensive eBooks?

A. That's a great idea, especially if your daughter is an avid reader! One of the greatest things about eReaders is that you can collect a larger personal library. And you don't have to spend much money - or any money, for that matter. Use these sites and apps to get free books on your Kindle, phone or tablet.

1. DigiLibraries

One of the best options for free eBooks is DigiLibraries. It's a site that was created by readers for readers, according to its founders, and it couldn't be simpler to use.

Currently, it has a collection of more than 20,000 eBooks. These are full versions of books in a wide range of genres, from religion, to true crime, travel, autobiography, fiction (14,280 novels), literary collections, reference books and many others.

You can read books directly from your PC, tablet or smartphone. Just click on the Read icon (see photo above), or open it as a PDF file. Or, you can use an eReader such as Kindle. To read a book on your Kindle, look for the Mobi Kindle icon. Click here to see screenshots and download instructions.
