From Mashable! post Free Kindle Books: A Guide:

“…For all but the Kindle Store, you’ll need to transfer the books manually using a computer and USB cable.

  1. Project Gutenberg: 33,000 free e-books, including all of the classics, available in Kindle, HTML and simple text formats.
  2. Google E-Bookstore: The free section is filled with thousands of free, scanned copies of books, available in Kindle-friendly PDF formats.
  3. Internet Archive: Millions of primarily rare, out-of-print works in multiple languages and formats (including Kindle), especially useful for academic work.
  4. Open Library: 20 million user-contributed items in multiple editions and formats (including Kindle).
  5. Nearly 30,000 titles, many of which have been pulled from Project Gutenberg. Has a good collection of little-known Creative Commons works.
  6. LibriVox: Thousands of free audiobooks.
