Suvudu Free Library

I'm not a fan of eBooks and eReaders generally. I have some installed on my iPod and I've downloaded a handful to thumb through on my computer. But generally, I prefer the heft, feel and convenience of a physical book.

However, for those who don't mind eBooks, go check out the Suvudu Free Library to download a selection of popular Sci-Fi/Fantasy books in pdf format. The idea is that they provide the first novel in a popular series, or some other book representative of a popular author. They give you the eBook for free, assuming that you'll enjoy the book and then go out and purchase it.

I already own a handful of the books they offer for free and I can say from those books (and what I know of some of the others) that this is a pretty good selection. I just don't know that I feel like reading them on a computer and I know that printing them out will take enough ink that I may as well buy the book.

Baen Books does something similar (started 9 years ago in fact)
