Register free with Once Was Paper
Our free registration below allows you to download ebooks where they offered at no cost by publishers, bypassing the shopping cart system we use.
Please note that where books are offered free by their authors/publishers, it is done with full agreement with us - the eBooks cannot legally be re-distributed or given to anyone else by you. If you want friends or family to get their own copy, they also need to register & download here, and the work's creator still needs to be offering the specific ebook at no cost when they register. Free books are usually being sold at zero cost for a limited time period to build interest in a specific writer or publisher's works. Its creators retain full control, ownership and copyright over their works. A real world analogy to this, is being given a free sample copy of a novel with a newspaper doesn't entitle you to print a thousand copies of the novel and then sell the books or give them away free.
You don't need to have registered for an account with us to buy ebooks... as your free login isn't used by the PayPal-powered shopping cart. The books you buy from us are made available to you via a unique download link that expires after a week, not via this login on the site.
