If there are two words in the English language that thrill me (well, as a writer, there are several, but these ARE definitely two top contenders), the words FREE and BOOKS would be it. Put them together and it's pure heaven.
Recently I went to the mall and spent a fair chunk of change. I did love how on the receipt it said "Today you saved: " . The amount I saved was equivalent to what I spent - half price sales all day were GREAT. I love a good deal. It gave me glee.
(Now don't get me wrong, I'm also all for giving people their due, which is why I feel duty bound to put in a public service announcement against pirating books. I'm happy to report that what I'm blogging about today is completely legit and authorized.)
So, here's your chance to snag some free books, enough to keep you occupied until the end of the month which is important, and you'll see why in a second.
First of all, if you haven't yet, head over to http://www.harlequincelebrates.com/ and download the 16 e-books they have up for grabs to help celebrate their 60th Birthday. There's one from each line so you get a wide variety - something to suit every romance reader's taste.
Then, venture on over to http://www.everyonesreading.com/, where Mills and Boon are celebrating one year of e-books. They've offered 10 for free download, and they are different titles than are offered at eharlequin, so already you're up to 26 titles.
If this is your first foray into e-books, and you don't have an e-reader, there are links on both sites to Adobe Digital Editions (which is what I use to read on). The cool thing about Digital Editions? It also has a smattering of free books you can download after you get the software - so if you're hankering to read something more of a literary classic - like Bram Stoker's Dracula or a little Hemingway - off you go.
And if you've finished all of those by the end of the month, then pop back over here on September 30th. The Pink Heart Society is also celebrating a birthday - number three! And to celebrate, we're offering a prize pack to a lucky reader. You'll get more details on the 30th, but the prize already includes:

Come back on the 3oth to find out how to enter...and for now, enjoy the freebies!
