Free NOOKbook summary - November 16, 2010

Another summary update already. There were a lot of changes today.

 

This time I'm going to try just listing the titles, without the covers. You can mouse over the title to see the cover if you want.

 

I've also put the publisher's name in [brackets], which might give you a clue about the content. Zondervan, Tyndale House, and Thomas Nelson are Christian-oriented publishers. Samhain titles tend to be quite risqué, and are available to Canadians. Galaxy publishes L. Ron Hubbard's books.

No longer free and other updates

[ Edited ]

No longer free:

 

 

Note to self: remember to add Phenomenal Girl 5 [Dorchester] to list of free e-books (since 10/18/2010) on next update.

 

Currently watching Deeper Water [Thomas Nelson] for possible freeness. Also watching for NOOKbook version of Love on a Dime [Thomas Nelson] which might get added as free, probably at EAN 9781418560560.

 

These finally seem to be official. At least they show up on the publisher search:

 

On the Run (age 9-12)

 

 

Sophie's World (age 9-12)

Skinny Cocktails - free NOOKbook (non-fiction)

 

Skinny Cocktails: The only guide you'll ever need to go out, have fun, and still fit into your skinny jeans [Sourcebooks]

 

I linked the cover image from Sourcebooks' site, since there isn't one here. There's no description here, either. Talk about a low-calorie e-book offering. :smileytongue:

 

Here's the first line of the description from Sourcebooks:

More than 250 Tasty Low-Cal Cocktail Options

Free NOOKbook summary - November 19, 2010

Before I could remember to add it to the list, Phenomenal Girl 5 [Dorchester] quit being free after 31 days.

 

I'm just listing the titles, without the covers. You can mouse over the title to see the cover if you want. The only new entry since the last update is this week's Free Fridays selection.

 

I've put the publisher's name in [brackets], which might give you a clue about the content. Zondervan, Tyndale House, and Thomas Nelson are Christian-oriented publishers. Samhain titles tend to be spicy, and are about the only free promotional titles available to Canadians. Galaxy publishes L. Ron Hubbard's books.

Free NOOKbook summary - November 23, 2010

No additions since the last summary. Five NOOKbooks are no longer free and have been dropped from the list. Looks like Thanksgiving week's going to be slow for new freebies.

 

I'm just listing the titles, without the covers. You can mouse over the title to see the cover if you want.

 

I've put the publisher's name in [brackets], which might give you a clue about the content. Zondervan, Tyndale House, and Thomas Nelson are Christian-oriented publishers.

The last two Free Fridays offerings were no longer free by Tuesday. I wouldn't be surprised if the publisher gave B&N a maximum number of copies that could be given away for free. Although Skinny Cocktails got a lot of flack from the "just fiction" crowd, it quickly climbed to be the #1 free download on B&N, and now has a sales rank of 110 among all e-books.

 

Promotional e-books on my list are for a limited time, and sometimes very limited indeed. I've seen e-books this month that were free for less than two days. That's why I try to keep this thread up-to-date on a daily basis.
