Ebooks Galore!

I recently won a Twitter contest from Twitterer @ReadersWin and received several free ebooks.  Through this contest and gathering my winnings, I learned of a new (to me) website, Smashwords.  Smashwords is an ebook paradise.  I’m not quite sure how many ebooks are available on the site, but it claims to have published over 1 billion words (if someone is really good at math – not me – I’m sure they can estimate how many words are typically in a book, etc. and figure it out).

A lot of the ebooks on the site seem pretty inexpensive (pretty comparable to what I see Kindle ebooks go for) and there are even free ones you can browse through.  It seems like Smashwords is the place to be for indie or first-time authors.  What a great way to find some new favorite authors!  Bonus: you don’t have to just read these ebooks on your computer.  You can download the ebook in multiple formats including Kindle, iPad, Nook, and many others.  The ones that I received are going to be sent to my Kindle as soon as I remember to do it.

Are there any other sources to find good ebooks?

(Side note: the word “ebook” starts to look really strange when you type it as many times and I did in this post.)
