eBook Browse - Search, Download, and Share eBooks

Through a recent blog post by Angela Maiers I discovered a nice service for finding and sharing ebooks. The service is called ebook browse and it's similar to services like Scribd and DocStoc. On ebook browse you can browse for documents, upload and share your own documents, and download the documents that other people make available. If you want to make your documents available online for others to read, just upload them to ebook browse and share the link or embed them into your blog or website using the embed code provided by ebook browse.

Applications for Education
I did a quick search on ebook browse and discovered that there are a lot of people sharing their lesson plans on ebook browseebook browse could be a good tool for students to use to share examples of their best writings. Students can upload to ebook browse then use the embed code provided to display their documents in their digital portfolios.

Search EBooks - An eBook Search Engine

The web is full of ebooks, you can see mine here, but finding them isn't always easy. You can search by file type on Google or visit any number of document hosting services like Issuu, but even then you might be missing something good. Search EBooks is a service dedicated to helping you find free ebooks. When you find an ebook on Search EBooks you can view a preview of it, download, or grab an embed code without ever leaving the search results page.

Applications for Education
Many useful how-to manuals are published as ebooks. If you're looking for a manual or other how-to document to share with your students or colleagues, Search EBooks could help you locate it and share it quickly.
