Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays

“A massive overview of every myth under the sun. Davis shatters commonly held myths about myths.”

- New York Daily News


That’s why every serious reader will love today’s Free Fridays selection: Don't Know Much About Mythology by Kenneth C. Davis. This bestselling author has written seven books in his popular Don’t Know Much About…series, covering everything from the Bible to the American Civil War. In this edition, Davis offers an engaging, layman-friendly lesson on ancient mythology—exploring cultures from around the world. While you probably have a vague idea of where everyday terms and concepts like “Pandora’s Box,” “Achilles’ Heel,” and “Wheel of Fortune,” come from, after reading DKMAM you’ll feel quite confident going into your next game of Trivial Pursuit on family game night.


Once you’ve binged on your mythology lessons, you can move on to Davis’s other equally enlightening Don’t Know Much About…books available for NOOK.

Same here, had this happen before, no response for an inquery. The explanation of availability answers my question.  Why was this kept such a secret?

Some users have reported a problem advancing past page 174 in this book. If you're having that issue, please just archive and unarchive the book, which should fix it. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Um, stupid question here, but why does the "Free Friday"  this week keep trying to charge me $10.99???????

Because January came and went a long time ago. Free Fridays offerings are for one day only, not for every Friday. The Free Fridays offering for July 13 was Raven Strike: — and although Friday is over, it's still free at the moment.


You can find the current Free Fridays offering every Friday at — I suggest you bookmark that URL.

Annoyed that they repeat freebies about a year apart - glad for the extra links :smileyhappy:

Very interested in this Free Friday selection, but when I select it, the website wants to charge me $8.99. Anyone else having this problem?

It's Friday, 11:00 am MDT, and this Free Friday isn't free! :-(
