Free NOOKbook summary thread - please no OT

[ Edited ]

As free NOOKbooks come and go, people sometimes miss some postings and opportunities. This thread is intended to be an ongoing list of the latest free NOOKbooks of note.

 

Personally, I'm not going to be including routine Smashwords freebies in my postings on this list. Nor some of the perennial freebies, especially from Harlequin. Check the B&N Free NOOKbooks page for those: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/Free-eBooks/379001668/

 

Everyone should feel free to post here, as long as it's on-topic for free NOOKbooks. If you find a freebie that's not on the list, let us know! If a NOOKbook becomes un-free, let us know! If you want to post Smashwords freebies, go right ahead; I'm not in charge.

 

May I suggest that you consider floating this thread. If you click "Thread Options" (right next to the Reply button at the top of this posting), one of the choices on the list is "Float this Thread to the Top". That makes it a personal "sticky".

 

Some fun links to see what the publishers who do most of the free NOOKbooks currently have:

The following publisher mostly has free short stories:

The following publishers mostly have only free excerpts, previews, and other teasers:

The following publishers usually have nothing, but you never know:

Doug, you are a mind reader!  I literally (ha!  a pun!!) came to the eBook forum just so I could put in a comment on one of your other "free ebook" posts and suggest having one long running thread announcing free books that are found.  That way, my email will let me know when a new one pops up.  Then...you started to do exactly that. 

 

Thank you!!

According to the Jak Phoenix website, the free ebook promotion ends tomorrow.  I don't know what the normal price is but, I noticed that B&N is selling the paperback for $13.45, so this seems like a good time to get the ebook (plus I like sci fi).

I just noticed I put the comma after "but" instead of before it in my last post.  The grammar police are going to get me!

@compulsive reader

  Are you sure you didnt order the regular version because the covers are the same, but the isbn numbers are different?

The Sword of Shannara (Shannara Series #1)
