NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the US, offers a huge range free e-books on topics covering science, aeronatics and history.
The books are effectively articles and papers that have been converted to e-book formats, but when they include such titles as the ISS Research Guide series, who is going to argue.
This is an invanuable collection of scientific and educational work for anyone with an interest in science, space travel or NASA itself.
Oh, and NASA spell e-book with a hyphen too...
Some books are only available as PDF, but many are in ePub and Mobi formats

Any Other Nameby sakina: Read
Like All Is Fair, this was a busy novel that I was sorry to finish, but (very minor) criticisms would be that some of the characters and events in both these books could have used a bit more development. Can't fault it on length, plenty to read, and the story is lots of fun, crammed with action.
The Fishermanby kevin: Read
Yes, The Fisherman is a little Lovecraftian, with its ancient gods, cultists, and watery... things. But it has much more going for it. The Fisherman is a work of beauty that Lovecraft never came close to.
You grieve with Abe as he tries to pick up the pieces. You worry about what Dan will do... and when he'll break. You wonder which story you are actually reading and who is telling it.
Blackbirdsby sakina: Read
Brilliant introduction into the fucked up mind of Chuck Wendig.
What people are saying about Libreture
I'm using Libreture to manage my books now and it's a very cool service...
I recently signed up to this. It's a nice way of storing all your DRM Free eBooks in one place. You can also share your library with others! It also helps support DRM-Free authors, publishers and bookshops by allowing users to link to where they got it from.
I think its really awesome, and ive been kind of glad someone is trying to build stuff in the eReading space that isn't vertically integrated.
