Rich at eContent has pointed to two interesting sources of free books in the past week. The first is to a site called FreeLoad Press that sounds really familiar, but I didn't blog it before so I must've not seen it before ;-) From the site: "Thanks to our sponsors, you can "freeload" e-textbooks and study aids for some of your college courses in Business, Math and Computer Applications." I haven't had a chance to look past the list of titles, but Rich says there are ads on the first page of each book, but that's it. If you're supporting students in Business, Math or Computer Applications, you might want to have a look.
The second post is about WikiBooks, "a collection of free, open-content textbooks that you can edit." Interestingly, a number of these books are also available as a downloadable PDF. You can still edit these books, but there's a disclaimer that, "The HTML files show the current state of the book - the PDF Editions are often out of date relative to the HTML files." Very interesting.
