Just as a note, this thread was intended not to included the free offerings from Smashwords.
.In Doug's first post:
"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.
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/"
I enjoy seeing a variety of freebies, thanks for all the hard work.
I took Doug's original post and adjusted the links since they didn't seem to be working - at least for me. I know there are many more publishers to review that he added as time went on but I thought I'd share this list for anyone interested in it. It isn't perfect and you may need to scroll through a bit or suffer through some false "hits" but hopefully it will help us all not miss too many!
If you see a missing publisher, please feel free to add it or if a link isnt directing you to the correct publisher - let me know. 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:

Ever since local developer Fred Stanton and his wife, Mimi, built five modular homes next door to Lucy Stone's farmhouse, life just hasn't been the same. With Mimi complaining about everything from the state of Lucy's lawn to another neighbor's lovable dog, quaint Tinker's Cove, Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and backstabbing. And when Mimi doesn't show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery— Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor-with a knife in her back.
While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy writing up the murder for the local Pennysaver-and following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in her neighborhood didn't like Mimi, but they certainly didn't want her dead...right?
Day of War, author Cliff Graham's first novel, has earned him a film option for the entire book series---Lion of War---from director David L. Cunningham (Path to 9/11) and producer Grant Curtis (Spider-Man films). In ancient Israel, at the crossroads of the great trading routes, a man named Benaiah is searching for a fresh start in life. He has joined a band of soldiers led by a warlord named David, seeking to bury the past that refuses to leave him. Their ragged army is disgruntled and full of reckless men. Some are loyal to David, but others are only with him for the promise of captured wealth. While the ruthless and increasingly mad King Saul marches hopelessly against the powerful Philistines, loyal son Jonathan in tow, the land of the Hebrew tribes has never been more despondent---and more in need of rescue. Over the course of ten days, from snowy mountain passes to sword-wracked battlefields, Benaiah and his fellow mercenaries must call upon every skill they have to survive and establish the throne for David---if they don't kill each other first.
