Are you an avid reader and looking for ways to download free eBooks? Peer to Peer sharing technology or the BitTorrent platform happens to be a frugal and the most popular form of downloading eBooks. There are numerous free eBook torrents available on these portals. On all these torrent sites, you can get electronic books in the suitable format for the most popular digital readers and other electronic gadgets such as Kindle, smartphones, tablets, etc.
Most of the popular public torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay, Torrentz2, IsoHunt, etc. are having mixed content such as movies, music, software, games and eBooks. However, there are private torrent sites such as Bibliotik, MyAnonamouse.net, Ebook Shares, etc., which have mostly e-books. Also, if you are new to torrents, then you should have a torrent client such as qBittorrent, uTorrent, Deluge, etc.
List of famous torrent websites offering free eBook torrents
Bibliotik is a private e-learning tracker or a private torrent website. It has a vast collection of eBooks and audiobooks in several formats. It mainly consists of comics, journals, magazines and e-learning apps.
Being a private tracker, this portal requires you to receive an invitation from an existing member for signing up. You can get invites on the IRC channel. But make sure to have a few books in your hand to offer it as uploads. It could be pretty hard to join since getting an invite is not easy, but it is doable.
