Free eBooks!

November 29th, 2009 at 03:35 pm

A good source of free eBooks is through Barnes & Noble. First you have to download their free reader. It can be installed on your PC, Mac, or cell phone. I've installed it on both my Mac and my iPhone.

Once you've completed the reader download and installation, you will be able to access from a large collection of free eBooks. Or, you can also buy others. So far, I have gotten the following free books:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Hide in Plain Sight by Marta Perry (this is a "Harlequin Romance"-type novel, not classic literature, but hey... it's free)
Merriam Webster's Pocket Dictionary

To download the free eBooks, you have to create a B & N account (it's free) and enter a CC number. The CC is NOT charged but you will later need to enter the card # to "unlock" any books you've downloaded. Your eBooks, free or purchased, are archived on the B & N website under "My eBooks Library."

The B & N Reader lets you go into full-screen mode and has other handy features. For example, you can "highlight" passages or view the eBook in single or two-page mode.

    Thanks for the tip. I love Pride and Prejudice and anything from Jane Austen.

    It doesn't sound free if you have to use your credit card number.

    John - The credit card # is necessary to unlock the book after you've downloaded it. The card is not charged... I have done this several times since July and there has never been a charge. The books advertised in their "Free eBooks" section are completely free. No doubt B & N s hopes you will like their eReader and eBooks so much you might buy some of the ones they have for sale in the regular eBook section.
