The Baen Books Publishing website is where my free e-book travels take me today. Baen Books is a science fiction publisher that has built an incredible free e-book library. The e-books, previously published by Baen Books, range from science fiction short stories, full-length science fiction, book series and even reading guides for teachers.
I was so excited to find such a generous selection of free e-books. Don't get me wrong, I love the classics but sometimes I want something new and fresh and Baen's free e-book library delivers.
Five things to love about the Baen Books free library
1. E-books are very easy to download
2. A Wide variety of e-book formats available for download.
3. Zip files are offered to make downloading easier.
4. Free e-book catalogue makes it easy to find and pick your e-books
Baen Books has put a lot of thought and effort into their free e-book library. Each free e-book download has a dedicated webpage. On each webpage, you get a synopsis of the e-book, a link to sample chapters, information about the author, and easy to understand download links.
A little slice of heaven
The best thing about the free e-book library at BaenBooks is the wide variety and high quality of free e-books made available. Baen Books free e-book library is a little slice of heaven for science fiction fans. And, if you aren't a science fiction fan, visit anyway; heaven is heaven no matter how you slice it.
