Most free and/or cheap ebooks fall into one of four categories:
- Classic literature
- Trashy romance
- Bad trashy romance
- Self-published works of varying quality
Sometimes it’s important to read for quantity and not quality, which is why the following books are all category 2: trashy lesbian romance. Concentration of sex scenes and/or subsequent U-hauling may vary.
