EPUB Books

Can anyone advise of where I can download free LEGAL EPUB books for my KOBO reader.
There seems to be many illegal sites and would like a legal one if possible.

    https://standardebooks.org/ is a really good site, not a huge selection, but all very high quality.

    Thanks all.
    What about:
    Project Gutenberg eBooks may be freely used in the United States because most are not protected by U.S. copyright law. They may not be free of copyright in other countries. Readers outside of the United States must check the copyright terms of their countries before accessing, downloading or redistributing eBooks.
    How do we do this?

    Library books use epub as well. 

    Ref project Gutenberg, you check  the details of the book and author.  In the UK, copyright expires 70 years after the author dies. 
    Looking at the most popular books on there, copyright isn’t an issue. 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
