Looking for a book to read? Free books are waiting to be downloaded and whether you have a Kindle or a computer there are some options for you this summer:

If you have a Kindle go to Amazon for:

Snowbound by Janice Kay Johnson

Dancing in the Moonlight by RaeAnne Thayne

The Wild’s Call by Jeri Smith-Ready

Once a Cowboy by Linda Warren

Crime Scene at Cardwell Ranch

Irresistible Forces by Brenda Jackson

Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian (also available in PDF format from GetFreeEBooks)


NO KINDLE? Try non Kindle, PDF downloads:

  1. You can go to the Gutenberg Project where they have over 28000 free e books. Fortunately they have PDF downloads for those of you who don’t have Kindles or Sony Ereaders. Unfortunately they don’t have category search just author and title search.
  2. Free-eBooks.net has PDF and Mobipocket Formats and also has the advantage of browsing by category. They do have a romance section which includes classics like Jane Austen’s Emma, Bronte’s Jane Eyre but also includes Wharton’s Ethan Frome – some one needs to educate this site on the definition of romance. You need to become a Free-EBooks.Net member to have access their library but registration is free. Bonus you can download free magazines.
  3. Fictionwise has free romance ebooks for your ‘secure Ereader’
  4. Planet PDF as the name suggests they are all about the PDF format and have a small collection of classic novels.
  5. Manybooks.net provides free ebooks for your PDA, iPod or eBook Reader. There are 21,282 eBooks available here and they’re all free! Bonus is you can search by category.
  6. GetFreeEBooks is exactly what is says, and for those of you who are Kindleless you can download Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian in PDF format.
  7. Planet eBook is another site which offers free downloads of classic literature. Still haven’t read Sense and Sensabiltiy? Go here and download for free.
  8. The Online Books Page presents Banned Books Online If you haven’t already read these classic ‘banned’ books  now’s your chance.  They have Voltiare’s Candide , John Cleland’s Fanny Hill, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, Defoe’s Moll Flanders , Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind and more. These are not downloadable only on line reads. But if you have an iphone or your computer is wireless, or even you’re home on a rainy night and you’re looking for something to read, read a classic.

    Thanks for posting about the free e-book promo for KISS OF MIDNIGHT!

    FYI, it’s available in a variety of formats at the special website that Bantam Dell is hosting for the promo — http://www.MidnightBreedRead.com.

    Right now the promotion is only running until 5/26/09, the release date for my next book, ASHES OF MIDNIGHT, however there is some talk that it might continue for a while longer at Bantam’s Fantasy site — http://www.Suvudu.com. I hope they’ll offer it free for a bit longer….

    If anyone happens to download Lucan and Gabrielle’s story, I hope you enjoy it!

    All best,

    Lara :)
