If you enjoyed watching any of the "Forsyte Saga" Film/TV adaptations and are interested in reading the original novels, they are now all available, and free, on epubBooks.

https://www.epubbooks.com/series/65-the-forsyte-saga

There are actually ten titles in the complete Forsyte Chronicles, which I'll be adding to the site too.
_The Forsyte Saga_, is a series of three novels and two interludes published by Nobel Prize-winning English author John Galsworthy. They chronicle the vicissitudes of the leading members of a large commercial upper middle-class English family, similar to Galsworthy's own. Only a few generations removed from their farmer ancestors, the family members are keenly aware of their status as '_new money_'. The main character, Soames Forsyte, sees himsel...

I've spent a little time bolstering the "Series" section on epubBooks.com, making sure any current ones have all available books included, along with creating four missing series.

* Carr Family: http://www.epubbooks.com/series/58/carr-family
These are the "Katy Did" series of books from Susan Coolidge (one title left to add) 

* Conan the Barbarian: http://www.epubbooks.com/series/56/conan-the-barbarian
A sub-series specifically about the "Barbarian" era of the Conan books (all five titles available)

* Doctor Dolittle: http://www.epubbooks.com/series/55/doctor-dolittle
Currently only a couple of titles available, but more coming soon.

* Tales of My Landlord: http://www.epubbooks.com/series/57/tales-of-my-landlord
A sub-series from the Waverley books Sir Walter Scott. (still two books to add before it is complete)

I've added some new admin features for easier maintenance of book series so I should be able to keep on top of all this a little better in the future.

If I've missed anything, please let me know!

Remember, all titles are available in #EPUB and #Kindle ebook formats.

Since epubBooks launched back in 2008 we've been dedicated to providing great quality free EPUB ebooks for some of the best novels of all time, with authors from Jane Austin to Andre Norton and Aesop to H. G. Wells.

Our epub ebooks have been readable on most any eReader or tablet, except the Amazon Kindle. Until now!

We're pleased to announce that every title found on epubBooks.com can now be downloaded as either an #epub  or #kindle  ebook.

You can check out our latest releases (http://www.epubbooks.com/books) but one of our most popular titles at the moment is "12 Years a Slave". So no matter if you're an iBooks, Nokia Lumia, or Kindle user, it's free to download! #freebooks

epubBooks now hosts all its ebooks as #EPUB3 . Woot! I've spent many a long hour on rewriting my conversion tool so it's great to finally start producing new ebooks again. On top of that more titles include illustrations and I'm now in a position to start making the ebooks look even better (I'm just using the stock XSL stylesheets at the mo).

With the new updates to the epubBooks toolset, we are now delivering all our books titles in the EPUB3 ebook format. Free Downloads still available.

One feature that I've been wanting to add to epubBooks for several years now is the ability to rate and review books -- I'm pleased to announce that that is now finally possible!

You'll need to sign up for account before you can either rate or review a book, but the process is quite straight forward.

Sign up here: https://www.epubbooks.com/sign_up

== Rating Books ==

Just click the stars under the author name. You can update your rating at anytime; just click a different star.

== Reviews ==

After the "excerpt" section - at the bottom of the page - you'll find the "Your Review" box. Click the "Write a Review!" button here and tell us what you think of your favourite books. You'll be able to give your rating score here too.

*NOTE* all new reviews will be held in moderation until an administrator manually accepts them. I hope to have something more automated in the future, but for the moment this will be the only way to make sure we don't get a ton of spam!

At present the rating/review functionality is pretty basic but over the coming weeks I'll try to improve things. If you have any thoughts about this please do let me know.

P.S. after you submit your registration it can sometimes take several minutes before the confirmation email arrives in your inbox. If however you still haven't received it after half an hour do check your spam folder. if you still don't find it then let me know and I'll look into it.

I've been adding a number of non-fiction ebooks to epubBooks.com over the last month or so - books that really should have been in the catalog ages ago. Some authors of note are;

* Charles Darwin's, The Origin of Species: http://www.epubbooks.com/book/963/the-origin-of-species
* Several Freud ebooks: http://www.epubbooks.com/author/sigmund-freud
* A couple of Self-help books; The Art of Public Speaking and Think and Grow Rich! http://www.epubbooks.com/subject/vs
* Plato: http://www.epubbooks.com/author/plato

Over the coming weeks I'll be adding more, but for now there's plenty to get your teeth into.

And remember, these are all free to download in either #EPUB or #Kindle format. Just head on over to http://www.epubbooks.com/ and browse the catalog.

Amazon recently announced their 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime recommendation list.

I thought it would be fun to create my own list with just those #ebooks   that can be downloaded [legally] for free!

There's not many of them (9) but I have most of them available on #epubBooks, and to be honest, they're probably better versions (formatting/layout) than you'd buy from most any ebook store.
