Well there was a lot of discussion here after I listed the best Catholic books and explained how to build a Catholic eBook library on the cheap. People flew to the comment-boxes to suggest titles they thought should have made the cut. So here are some more recommendations from the comboxes, more solid Catholic books and eBooks:

More Cheap eBook Sources
- Aquinas and More – The only online Catholic bookstore that sells eBooks–they have a pretty incredible collection, including a number of fairly cheap titles. The best part about their eBooks is that they are all edited and formatted which makes e-reading a whole lot easier.
- CCEL (Christian Classics Ethereal Library) – They have a wide selection of classic Christian titles, most costing $1-$3 each. And they support multiple eBook formats.
- Google Books – You can download plenty of free eBooks from this collection, but only in the ePub format (aka not in Kindle’s “.mobi” format.)
- Ignatius Press eBooks – I think out of all the Catholic publishers, Ignatius has the most robust eBook selection. Their eBooks are reasonably priced and they support multiple eBook formats.
- Inkmesh – This is the best eBook search engine, as far as I can tell. Type in any author or book and if there’s a free eBook version available, Inkmesh will find it.
- Our Sunday Visitor eBooks – OSV has just entered the eBook market, but they’re doing a great job. I really like that they’ve gone back and made a lot of their classic titles available in digital format.
What do you think? Did I get them all?
