What is the Favourite Free eBook that you managed to acquire. For me it was A Night of Horrors by John Berry. If you like Historical Novels, you will DEFINIETLY not be sorry that you got that one.

By telling us what your favourite one is, perhaps some of the rest of us will be lucky enough to get it free in the future as well.

So, what is you favourite Free eBook?

H.G. Wells' 'The War of the Worlds' was my favorite free book that I got on my kindle quite a while back, it was rather short but I loved every minute of it! (: Looking to get a paperback copy of it now...

You should easily find a paperback copy of it ... in a used book store ... even on line, you should be able to get a New one for about $4 but the problem there is shipping cost.

BTW ... if you like H G Wells, most of his stuff his FREE on line ... try Amazon or Manybooks.net. Also if you want 'em all in one collection, try here ...

Good luck and thanks for participating.

James Ward (jamesward) | 11 comments I tend to use free e-books for non-fiction rather than fiction. June Kessler does cookbooks which normally enjoy three or four free days every few months. Her "Sizzling Chinese Cuisine" is quite useful, although I find the US measurements a bit problematic. (What's a "Cup" of beansprouts? Is it like a coffee mug, or more like part of a china teaset ... or a bra?)

There's some good writing in Mike Ball's "What I've Learned... So Far Part III: Banjos, Boats & Butt Dialing". It's also quite funny. And I haven't yet finished reading Armand Burke's "The Great Leap Forward". However, it's got a great cover, and fromwhat I've read so far, I'm impressed. A bit like Kafka meets Le Carre.

None of these are free permanently (although they do seem to be free at regular intervals). I'd recommend the AMC newsletter for catching them at the right time.

Thanks ... there is an application on ereader iq where you can flag the eBooks you are interested in and stipulate at what price you are willing to pay. When the books gets reduced to your price - they will notify you.

Well spotted. Now that's what I call an eye for the main chance!
