Depends what you like to read but the Gutenberg Project is trying to collect together any copyright free books often showing a few versions to download from Kindle to PDF.

However the search function is a tad odd and often you will find something in the section yet if you search it claims it's not there but it is a great resource.

I have better luck using google (with a .amazon) then with Amazon's search function with the Gutenberg books.

 

I've looked at the free books on and off but I haven't been too thrilled with the selection.

In my experience, I haven't found many great ebooks over on Amazon. I've had way better luck with finding scanned, out-of-copyright eBooks on Google Books. :smile:  One of my favorites is Plant Lore, Legends, and Lyrics.  Google Books has a great amount of folklore- and folk magic-related books!!

Following up with another free site for books is the website sacred-texts.com - They have a lot of mythology and other literature; like The Malleus Maleficarum, H.P. Lovecraft stories, The Vedas, The Gardnerian Book of Shadows (I realize that's Wiccan, but I'm putting the info out there an example of texts you can read free online), books on Tarot (pictorials and history), lots of Celtic folklore, myths, etc., Shamanism, Alchemy, Astrology, Ceremonial Magick (like Crowley and Waite), Esoteric and Occult, Native American Religion and mythology, Symbols and tons of other mythology, religion, folklore, etc. from around the world. 

 

Hope it's helpful! :)
