I would like to share this list of free/open source books about R. These books teach different topics: tha basics of R, how to do graphs, statistics, econometrics… Most of these books are web-based, but some books are in pdf format. Just as a note: I have not used or checked of all them. As a final comment: I will be updating this list.
