Best method to search for eBooks via Google

Google is still by far the most powerful search engine in the world, it crawls the web at an astonishing rate, indexing everything the bot can get its hands on. A few simple filtering strings will do the trick in search of PDF files or any file extension you specified. For instance, using the ‘filetype’ Google Search filter, I was able to search for the free book from Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities in ePub and PDF format.

Help! I could not find the book I needed!

Free eBook are everywhere, if you are having a hard time searching for the book and it is available on Amazon for a price, which happens to be the largest online bookstore in the world, it means the book is copyrighted. My advice is to respect the author’s creation and hard work, and purchase the original.

    this post seems to be out dated, a few of the links are down now a days. And many of the free sites are not getting updated. Another things is that i’m amazed that why didn’t have you included epubebooks in this post.

      Ngan Tengyuen [ Reply ]

      I am sorry for not including your site into our list, it appears to me your site is full of pirated eBooks. The last time I checked, Harry Potter is still a copyrighted book and was not made available for free by the publisher. Respect the author’s work, thanks.
