14 July 2014 Digital Book Day - links to various free ebooks
This is a portal. Sign up for the mailing list, then go to the portal, and select a genre. The download links take you to whatever site is offering the free book, including Kobo, Amazon, and various indie publishing or author's sites.
It takes some patience. I kept getting database errors from the portal, but by refreshing the page a few times, I finally got to the download links. Some are books we've seen many times before, but there are many choices in various genres.
Saw the following self-promotion by the author, then checked out his rating at Amazon.com (4 stars, favorable reviews). Currently $0.99 in the Kindle Store; unavailable in the NOOK Store.

Corporal Whitey O’Thraight may need to choose between his own survival and that of his home planet.
Whitey O’Thraight, the Ship’s Armorer on the first interstellar vessel launched by his home planet Vespucci, finds himself stranded on a strange planet with just one other survivor.
Captured by the local Baron, they are freed by a group of monks who are much more than they initially appear to be. Their new benefactors and friends have something special in mind for the two survivors, but going along with these plans might mean the destruction of Vespucci as they knew it.

It seems that the "Free NOOKbook summary thread - please no OT" is missing about a couple of weeks worth of posts. Are others seeing this also or do I need to change some setting somewhere?
I think Alex said that all the posts from the last couple of days would not migrate over to this new site. Although it looks to be more like 6 weeks worth of posts.
Dont know about others, but I think it would make sense if the post with daily Open Road Media nook book contained links to other stores for that particular book. It could stay in the Nook thread because it's a nook book, and the links would be just extras (amzn, apple, google, indiebound and kobo - they're in the 7:30 AM newsletter emails).
I'm either missing posts or the wonderful people who post free books almost daily haven't been able to navigate within this new forum.
TarHeel, thank you so much for the link. I added it to home screen so it will be easier to find. What I meant to say tho was that some of the (not you as you are still posting) people who used to post daily are not posting anymore. I wonder if it is because they are haven't figure out how to navigate the forum yet. I surely do thank you and all the others that do share their search results with others in this thread.

I wonder if you could tell us the steps you are using to post free books on the new forum. Your posts are well formatted (they look just like posts in the old forum). While any I have tried to post end up just displaying the link,
