Free eBooks, articles, and info…

FAQ & Book List

Your FREE ebook download site for solar energy, frugal living, and other interesting topics

People keep asking me for my books for sale also; they can be found here at my Amazon Author’s Page.

Note: I have author’s pages under “Sharon Buydens” as well as “Sharon Cornet” and “Sharon Eby” (keep watch)

Scroll down for Q&A / FAQ and a list of available book titles as well as what is coming soon. You can also click on the links in the top of the page, or on the right side bar. I am a writer/author, editor, and proofreader for articles, books, and write/copywrite website content as well for businesses, students, and individuals. Check out my “writing services” page if you need help!

Please bear with me as I get these books prepared for this online bookstore… they take a while to write and edit and get published. This is my life, my passion, and my focus (finally). This is also part of my service to all of humanity and the one beautiful blue-marbled globe we all live on together, so it is also a labor of love and holds spiritual meaning for me, but directed to the masses from a practical down-to-earth approach.

Writing and sharing these with the public is my pleasure. Please know that although these books are free, they also cost me in time and money to research, write, and publish, not including marketing, website and online costs, salary (this is how I make my living), and other expenses. To download books may be free for you, but not for me. Why?

This is not a non-profit company but I do have to pay self-employment taxes because providing online books, where you can download free ebooks, as well as regular print books from Amazon, and Kindle books (where you can download ebooks). Basically though, ebook downloads where you can get an ebook free from my ebook library, is my business. Still, I have been given so much of this information that I originally learned, as a freebie, so I would like to pass it on to those who cannot afford much right now, but–hopefully because of putting this ebooks download information to good use and saving money for the rest of their lives–will be able to later.

Because of this, I happily accept donations! 🙂 Please support the continuation of my ability to provide free e-books!

Q&A / FAQ for free ebook download:

What is an e-book/ebook?

An e-book means an “electronic book.” That is, a regular book written on a computer and saved as a PDF file, which is uploaded to either Amazon or any website (including eBay), which you can download to your computer from the Internet. You can then read it at your leisure from your computer screen or your Kindle e-book reading device.

Can I really get ebooks for free?

Yes! I offer shorter versions of my books free online (version 1 copies).

Plus, you can get ALL my published books on Kindle for free if you are an Amazon Prime member
