Would someone, please, point me to where I can get a page of links for free books by publisher? I have a list that Doug created but the website apparently has been reorganized and they don't work. I know someone listed them in the Free NOOKbook Summary thread but I can't find it. Thanks!

This appears to be the new link format
I don't have time to do it for all - but substitute any publisher you want... but that should give you a start and you can use Doug's list for some publishers to start with.
There is also an "advanced search" button at the bottom of each page - under bn services - second column over.
That lets you choose options - like publisher...
And you can enter price (like -10 for under $10)
I just changed that to 0.00...
remember, it will only search for the publisher exactly as you enter it - so if publishers are listed slightly differently for different books - or have a different name they publish under... you will have to search those separately...

I took Doug's original post and adjusted the links since they didn't seem to be working. It isn't perfect and you may need to scroll through a bit or suffer through some false "hits" but hopefully it will help. I know some publishers were missed but maybe someone can take my list and add a few more to it.
Not every publisher will have something currently free that is in the correct format. Look for cover pictures before you download.
Simon & Schuster
The following publishers mostly have only free excerpts, previews, and other teasers:
The following publishers usually have nothing, but you never know:
Grand Central Publishing

for some reason I can't post the links but the Thomas Nelson and Baker links don't take you to the right books. You actually want to search for Thomas Neslon Publishers 0.00 and Baker Publishing Group 0.00 and it will take you to the correct books for these Publishers. I didn't realize that you could search by publisher at B&N. Thank you for compiling this list. That was a lot of work.

Yes, thanks for the links! That does take awhile to compile.
For those who may not know, the "false hits" are generally because the search done with the links above will include the search term whether it is in the title, author, etc. - including publisher... But it is definitely a good start to browse through.
Here are the links for Baker and Thomas Nelson (by using Advanced Search, entering the publisher name, and changing the price from under $10 to 0.00).
You could also just search by publisher and then sort by price (low to high)
