Twenty years ago when I was a student in Greece I remember how hard it was to find sources (books, manuals, etc.) for my classes. The few online recourse back then didn’t make research and the transmission of knowledge easier. Free books as an Idea was in existence but not widely applied like it is today. Today free books are used as a promotion tool by many writers, especially independent ones. I use it myself often to promote my books and also my blog.

Back then The Internet in Greece was in an infant state. My biggest problem was the lack of information either for my studies or for my hobbies. Public domain recourses were confined into the perimeter of university libraries and only available to students there, or to library card holders. The  whole system was not de-centralized like it is today with the World Wide Web (www)

It’s amazing how internet transformed the knowledge landscape in the last 20 years. Now my biggest problem is not the lack of information. My main problem now is to figure out from the vast amount of information that is out there, if it’s credible and scientifically sound. Anyone with a computer, tablet or a mobile phone can go online and write whatever he or she wants.

Back then was little to none information available now is too much information!

That’s what I had in my head just wanted to share it with you, good people. Now I love free books, who doesn’t like them right? I am a bit old fashioned myself I will choose a paperback or hard copy instead of an eBook given the option, but I do read eBooks too, short guides mostly that do not require to spend a lot of time reading in front of a  computer monitor.

I am a bookworm I am afraid so watch out for your libraries or bookshelf’s, I  do read most of my wake time if I want to get some rest from reading  I will relax by reading something else!

The love for reading was passed down to me from my parents both avid readers, my father had and still has a big collection of books, both fiction, and non-fiction.

By the age of 13, I read all the books written by Jules Verne and also both memoirs of Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaul.

I am more prone into no-fiction myself, practical guides and self-help books and manuals than fiction.

So today I present to you 6 public domain sources, which I use on a daily basis either for my research for my books or private pleasure where you can download free books!
