I love sites like Librivox and Project Gutenberg that let you download books for free. The only problem is that they’re restricted to public domain works, so you’re not going to find anything current.
WOWIO aims to change that. You can download ebooks in many genres, many of them still copyrighted. The selection is pretty limited, but you can find books from the likes of Kurt Vonnegut and Ray Bradbury.
Like with any ebook, you’re better off printing it rather than squinting at the text on your computer screen, phone or iPod. Also, while there’s a large selection of literature that students should read, WOWIO is probably best suited for someone who wants to read for pleasure, so don’t feel guilty if you want to download a comic book after you finish Breakfast of Champions. -BILL FERRIS
