Dec 17th update: Another free book – PDF version of Blown to Bits - which talks about life, liberty and happiness after the digital explosion.
Edit: Thans to Evan and Jason for the updates. In my excitement I missed that the free Made to Stick was just introduction and index – which is a really bad idea – everyone already knows you can get a sample chapter free – why would you have a separate entry for it.
The official Kindle Blog had recently talked about a bunch of free books. There is now one book added to it -
- Flood by Andrew Vachss (very highly rated) – This is was free (and is now just $2.95) to encourage people to buy another Andrew Vachss book (Another Life) that will be released Dec 30th. There is a bug going around which means you might be able to get it for free by using the link from your Amazon Daily blog on the Kindle, else you have to pay $2.95.
