Sorry for the delay in replying.
(I was called away for an urgent meeting of the Illuminati. Things are
getting a bit dicey in some areas).

As I understand it, some ebooks are normally free and some aren't.
Some need an annual membership fee.

The main benefit of this free book fair seems to be a search engine
including all the organisations that agreed to join in. So it should
be easier to find a particular book. They also provide a comprehensive
list of ebook collections that people may wish to access (even when
there is a fee payable).

Best wishes, BillK
