Are you still searching around to download things like free eBook, free music, free software and free videos/movies from the internet. I have done it so, and I am still doing it. In this post I am going to share my experience on how to download them for free.
Websites to Download Free EBooks and Magazines
Many websites which claim to offer free eBook are either ads farms or scams. You can refer to Top 10 Best Free Online Libraries . Besides that, I have found the other two great sources to download free eBooks.
1. Ebookee has a large collection of eBooks links, ranging from literature to computer to fashion magazines. I am really impressed by their vast collections.
2. Sina Share is founded by the Chinese internet giant Sina Corporation. Search your keywords and see if any eBook match. Click the link and you will see a blue button which means “Download”. Click it and the download will automatically begin.
3. EBook 3000 is nother one of my favorite websites to download free eBooks. The reason I like it is that it provides real download link, click and wait for a few minutes then you will get the book.
Update 6/30/2011: another great website to download free ebooks,
eBookDB: offers thousands of free online ebooks covering various topics.
Update 7/12/2011: two websites to download free ebooks and free magazines!
The National Academies Press: As of June 2, 2011, all PDF versions of books published by National Academies Press will be downloadable to everyone free of charge. There are more than 4000 books plus future reports produced by the NAP.

Websites to Download Free Videos and Movies
First search the video or movie you want with Google video search, see if it’s on some video sharing sites like youtube. If yes, then you can either watch it online or download it. If no, please read my article, Top 15 Most Popular Torrent Search Engine Sites . I strongly advice you that do not download any copyrighted material without the consent of the copyright owner.
