You can easily convert to mobi with the epub version though. I do it often and so far I haven't ever found a broken conversion or anything. I tend to use this, not sure about other services.

Storage wise, no...

Hi! As Omicron666 noticed yesterday, they've now added a captcha to the claim page, does your script still work? I'm not sure how you scheduled it, but right now today's book ("Effective Python Penetration Testing") is not available on your site :/

Thanks for notifying, looks like the ebook auto claim script I'm using is broken because of captcha
but -da command (which is download all claimed ebook) still works, so basically i just need to claim the ebook manually and let my server download it later as scheduled

Do they send the link to my email or something? Or do they just need it at the start to register me?

You have to register to their website, then you can claim the free book.

Book is added to your library in their website.

You can then download it at anytime in epub format (adaptive format for ebooks, best suit for reading on mobile devices), pdf and other formats.

Check comments posted above. I can't add it in OP but there is a useful link... ;-) Files are legit but hosting them are probably not. ¯\(ツ) And host has apparently decided to add epub files too :-)

There are many auto-claiming scripts around on the web :P, with options to download ebooks in wanted formats, copy to google drive, etc...
Now which one to use o_o ? :-) (which one is the lightest actually ? ^^)
Apparently, Packt have a free weekly ebook in their newsletter too (handled by some scripts as well)
