(3) Tips and Tricks

Here are a few sites for free books that I have used and have had success with. 
Project Gutenberg - free ebooks (public domain)
Librovox -  free audiobooks (public domain)
Amazon has a bunch of free ebooks for Kindle, which you can download (also for free) onto your computer, iPhone or, obviously, Kindle, if you have one.  
Librarything - similar to Goodreads, but if you promise to review books, publishers will sometimes send them to you for free.
Booksneeze - if you promise to review the book on your blog and Amazon or other site, they will send you one for free. These seem to mainly be Christian reading however.
Dorrance - Publisher who will give you a free book if you review it on your blog, LibraryThing, Amazon and Goodreads.
