How To Find Free eBooks on Pinterest

The Pinterest social network may still be closed to the general public, but that’s not stopping readers and writers from using the site as a resource. Currently, anyone can use these Pinterest boards for eBook fans to find free digital books.

The site lets users create virtual “pinboards” by pinning images of their favorite things. It includes a host of pages dedicated to books, including a number of pages dedicated to free eBooks. At Mediabistro we have been exploring the site to help writers and readers learn how to use it.

At eBookNewser we have put together a list of 10 Pinterest boards for eBook fans. At GalleyCat, we have put togethers  Pinterest Tips for Writers and Pinterest Boards for Book Lovers.

Here is more about the new social network: “Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.” Follow this link to request a Pinterest invite.
