We have 2 free books for kindle dx owners today. You could always convert these free PDF books using MobiPocket if you have a Kindle 2.
- First up, courtesy a user at MobileRead is Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies. It’s a free offer from Simon and Schuster to promote the soon to be released Leviathan. Uglies itself is a very well rated book with 4.5 stars across 232 reviews. You could also buy it in Kindle format from the Kindle Store.
- Simon & Schuster also have a free short story – A Knight to Remember by Karen Tabke.
- Amazon Video on Demand has the pilot episode of Defying Gravity available to view free (only in the US).

Why doesn’t every author who can’t find a publisher add a Kindle Edition for $1 to $9 to supplement the free PDF giveaway?
