          The Model Millionaire (The Title Story from The Model Millionaire)

          (HarperCollins Publishers)

           

          Playwright, poet, essayist, flamboyant man-about-town, Oscar Wilde was arguably literature's most versatile writer. Over the course of two short decades, he was responsible for an astonishing amount of work, genius, scandal, and controversy, producing masterworks in virtually every literary genre. This exceptional collection includes nearly every short story the incomparable Wilde published during his exceedingly eventful career, including "The Selfish Giant," "The Fisherman and His Soul," and "The Remarkable Rocket."

              I haven't downloaded it myself, but it appears that this freebie is just one short story from the larger collection.

                I didn't check it out myself and can't do it ATM, but my amazon says "This selection includes almost all of his short stories, including "The Canterville Ghost," "The Fisherman and his Soul," and "The Remarkable Rocket."" and I'm pretty sure that's what it is.

                  I just downloaded this to confirm. The freebie is one short story from the collection. The collection is currently $8.99. Since they're on the same product page, the description is for the entire collection.

                    (Samhain Publishing, Ltd.)

                     

                    Without trust, common ground can get pretty shaky…

                     

                    “I believe you have something of mine, Zach.”

                     

                    Zach Owens doesn’t even know who this angry stranger is, let alone what the man is talking about—until he learns what they have in common. Their boyfriend, Jake. Once Jake’s out of the picture, Zach’s apology to Nathan Forrester leads to a long conversation, a kiss, and a chemistry that goes far beyond revenge sex.

                     

                    Nathan can’t help but fall for the sexy movie theater owner, but it’s a long way from sheet-tearing sex to mutual trust. And a series of “coincidences” that throws Zach into Jake’s company leaves him unconvinced Zach was the complete innocent in their previous love triangle.

                     

                    Zach can’t seem to make Nathan believe that Jake is up to something. But protesting his innocence isn’t working, and Jake’s carefully orchestrated campaign to destroy their love could leave them both with nothing…

                     

                    Warning: Contains explicit male/male revenge sex, sweet sex, angry sex, and make-up sex. Author is not responsible for clothing damage that may result from reading this book.

                      Tuki Aparecio did not kill her lover. She did not burn down the Painted Lady--at least, not with fire. Tuki lit up the stage nightly, with her hair in braids and her glorious costumes; glittering, smoldering, singing her heart out for an audience who loved her. She brought the house down with her performances. But she's innocent of murder, innocent of arson.

                      How can Michael DeCastro possibly hope to defend this beautiful drag queen, who brings with her a whole pack of nasty little secrets, straight from Bangkok's notorious tenderloin district? She speaks in aphorisms, the wisdom of the Buddha combined with the lyrics of Whitney Houston. She is fascinating. And Michael can't let her go to jail.

                        Best wishes to Pinky! I've been using his thread since Doug made it back in the day (it was so much easier than following inkmesh) and I greatly appreciate your efforts to maintain the various lists and keep us updated on free ebooks. I look forward to reading the updates on your blog!

                          :smileymad:Now, now, okay children - let's shake hands, return to your corners and play nice now!:smileyvery-happy:

                           

                          This really got out of hand. I, too, have been using this thread since Doug had it to find new Nookbooks. It's been really helpful. However, I didn't realize it was a competition or that people held "copyrights" on "finding a freebie"! The whole point of the threads are to have a resource for free books. It shouldn't be a competition. It shouldn't be such a big deal who found the freebie. There shouldn't be any "credit" except by the publishers & authors who originally list the books for free. There are numerous places someone could have happened on a free book and decide to post here for others. 

                           

                          After reading the posts, in my opinion, it seems that egos got riled and bruised and egos are NOT what these threads are about. I'm not speaking to any one individual, but to all in general. I think a good solution to the situation would have been for spec and pinky to post each others links on their respective threads so that users could be directed to both. They are both good threads. I like that this thread is updated almost daily, but when I checked out spec's (which I hadn't know of until this argument got started), I liked the way his was by genres. If they linked to each other's then I'm sure there are readers out there, me included, who would follow both threads. 

                           

                          This isn't a competition. This is the B&N COMMUNITY! Community as I know it means we work together. It's really sad to see that the issue got out of hand, so much that I can't even figure out what started the whole thing. I know it's cliche' but: Can't we all just get along?!?!

                           

                          One suggestion, since this thread is 90 pages now: I know the first few pages Doug had lists of links for looking up freebies, but the majority of the pages in the middle are pretty much expired. I know that Pinky reposted like Doug's Perennial free books, and of course updating the weekly ones. Is there a way that like pages 10-70 could just be deleted? Can the expired posts be removed to remove the clutter? Personally, I have the last page of the thread bookmarked, so when I check it I can just go to the last page I had been on. Then if there are some new pages, after I get my free books, I replace the bookmark with the new last page. Just a suggestion that might help others.

                           

                          Now for the wisdom from "All I ever needed to know I learned in Kindergarten" (by Robert Fulgham) that I feel might apply to this whole thing:

                           

                          Think of what a better world it would be if we all ~the whole world had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. . . .And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

                           

                          So let's all hold hands and stick together! :smileyvery-happy:

                          As for me, I'm gonna get my cookies & milk and take a nap! OOPS - almost forgot my blanky! Nighty night! :smileytongue:

                              'Tis the season to be jolly, but in Moosetookalook, Maine, Christmas cheer is in short supply due to a snowless winter that's keeping skiers and shoppers at a distance. Fortunately, Liss MacCrimmon of the Scottish Emporium has a plan...

                              Liss's brainstorm focuses on Tiny Teddies, the new "hot" toy of the season. Every store across the country is out of stock—except a few wee establishments in good ol' Moosetookalook.

                              The first sign of something amiss occurs when the last Tiny Teddy is summarily executed: shot through the heart in the display window of greedy toy store owner Gavin Thorne. But the Teddy's demise is just a precursor to the eerily similar murder of Gavin himself...

                              Now, with the Twelve (or, in Scots terms, the Daft) Days of Christmas rapidly approaching, Liss has a plate full of things worse than haggis to contend with, starting with a stockroom packed with poultry (don't ask), and ending with a killer who'd like to see Liss's goose well and fully cooked...

Deborah, the determined matchmaker, puts her sights on uniting her brother and dear friend in a true love match.

                                  Deborah soon meets Dr. Christopher Clayton, a much-needed addition to the town. As their lives intersect, Deborah realizes that she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she was trained in. But when typhoid begins to spread and Lizzie's jilted fiance returns, Deborah wonders if true love can overcome such obstacles...for those dearest to her, and for herself.
