There doesn't seem to be that many good E-books out there on the UFO subject but did find this interesting one from 1957:
Inside Saucer Post 3-0 Blue by Leonard Stringfield 1957
Leonard Stringfield was born in 1920. He was director of CRIFO (Civilian Research, Interplanetary Flying Objects) - one of the world's largest research groups during the mid-5Os and publisher of its newsletter, ORBIT (1953-1957). He also worked in cooperation with the United States Air Force (1953-1957), investigating and reporting UFO activity, having been assigned a special code number to report by phone to the Air Defense Command in Columbus, Ohio. For over 30 years Stringfield served in several of the major UFO Organizations in a public relations capacity. From 1957 to 1970, he was public relations adviser with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. Later on it was director of public relations and board member of the Mutual UFO Network. He was also regional investigator for the Center for UFO Studies directed by Dr. J. Allen Hynek.
Stringfield was also advisor to Sir Eric Gairy, former Prime Minister of Grenada, 1977-78, during his efforts to establish a UFO research agency within the framework of the United Nations. He passed away in 1994.
Cincinnati Magazine reports on the UFO research work of U.S. UFO author and researcher Leonard H. Stringfield:
“Stringfield and the UFOs”, June 1975
(Cincinnati Magazine, Ohio)
In UFO Frontier, Cincinnati-based Ufologist Kenny Young's body of work is revealed including his investigations into Jackie Gleason and "The Pickled Men", pre-Roswell UFO crashes, the 1997 "Phoenix Lights", phantom blasts, mystery planes, weird creatures, stealth aerospace technology, crop circles, police and government UFO incidents, and private industry involvement. No crackpot flying saucer personality or organization is safe from his level-headed criticism. Editor and fellow paranormal researcher S. Patrick Feeney merges several of Young's unpublished works into this single anthology.

Richard M. Dolan is a gifted historian whose study of U.S. Cold War strategy led him to the broader context of increased security measures and secrecy since World War II. One aspect of such government policies that has continued to hold the public's imagination for over half a century is the question of unidentified flying objects.
UFOs and the National Security State is the first volume of a two-part detailed chronological narrative of the national security dimensions of the UFO phenomenon from 1941 to the present. Working from hundreds of declassified records and other primary and secondary sources, Dolan centers his investigation on the American military and intelligence communities, demonstrating that they take UFOs seriously indeed.

Swamp Gas Times: My Two Decades on the Ufo Beat
"UFOs have approximately 75% of this planet in which to operate undetected.Adding another piece to the puzzle. From dissimilar puzzle pieces supplied by ufologists throughout the years of UFO history, a picture is starting to take shape. Ufologist Carl Feindt has not only contributed his own small piece, but he has also connected many of the previous pieces to form an enlightening and highly plausible theory.Feindt’s studies concern Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) that enter and exit the dense medium of water. This aspect aroused his curiosity, because while we humans do not understand alien science, we do know our water. This book contains cases from just about every type of body of water, from puddles to oceans. It opens a long-overlooked door to discover the operating principles of UFOs by closely observing water’s reaction to these craft and finding similarities among cases involving water.“[Carl Feindt] did an excellent job of describing the movement of UFOs in water, entering water, leaving water, and moving above the water...and what the water conditions can tell us about the mechanics of the operation of the vehicles.”

“HUMAN REACTIONS TO UFOs WORLDWIDE (1940-1983); WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED FROM
UFO REPETITIONS” by George D. Fawcett
It's a phenomenon as old as the sighting of UFOs-and perhaps stranger than the sightings themselves: Men in Black. With eerie consistency, UFO witnesses around the world report their presence after a sighting or alien abduction. But who are these shadowy figures-men dressed in dark clothing who seem to know intimate details about witnesses' lives...and who strike unearthly fear in these people in order to keep then quiet about what they saw? Are they just a figment of overactive imaginations? Are they government agents? Secret Service men? Aliens? Or part of a much darker force whose urgent mission remains veiled in mystery...
For the first time ever, renowned UFO expert Jenny Randles blows the lid off this fascinating and even life-threatening phenomenon. Through extraordinary case histories of real-life encounters, Randles sheds stunning new light on these ominous strangers known as Men in Black.
The book recounts the classic and most carefully documented of the many 'close encounters' that have been reported across the world. Driving home from Canada on the night of September 19th 1961, Betty and Barney Hill of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, sighted a flying saucer, which left them shaken. When they arrived home Barney found inexplicable scuff marks on the tips of his shoes; Betty noticed rows of mysterious circles on the boot of their car, but what was worse, they realised they could not account for almost two hours of their time on the road. After many months of psychic distress, they sought medical assistance from Dr. Benjamin Simon, a distinguished Boston psychiatrist and neurologist, and under psychotherapy, including time-regression hypnosis, the Hills gave almost identical accounts of what had happened during their two lost hours. They told of intelligent humanoid beings who took them on board an alien spacecraft, questioned them and subjected them to physical examinations.
