Free books!

Would you like free books and lots of them including classics without even the need to enter a competition or leave your home? OK. There is a snag but only a tiny one. These are all ebooks. Don't worry about buying a reader though, all you need is a computer, laptop or tablet. I know you've got one of those! When you 'buy' the free books you'll have the option to download the software to read them. Alternatively, try winning a reader here.

Lily Child's novella Stones the Crows is free to download until midnight 9 April (UK time). It's the second in her Magenta Sharman series.

Natural born shaman, Magenta Sweeney is torn from the comfort of England's green coast and sent on a terrifying trance journey by the very guides and guardians that claim to protect her. This time she must do as she is told. This time – she has no choice.

 Maggie finds herself eight hundred miles from home, wandering the Bohemian forests of the Czech Republic in a final, desperate attempt to rescue the father she'd long believed dead.

As the bleak stone walls of ancient Houska Castle loom through the trees the shaman must prepare herself as never before. When the Gates of Hell open to invite Magenta in, she is forced to make a decision – one that could be her last.

But why is Patsy suddenly so keen on ebooks? Doesn't she love the paper ones now? Well, yes she does but she's packing for her holidays and can see that in this situation electronic ones do have a slight advantage and of course she does love this ebook.

  4. Suzy, I still much prefer the real thing.

    I've had some really lovely comments, Sarah.

    We're going on a cruise round the eastern med, Suzanne. Should get some great pictures as well as lots of writing time.

  5. Ebooks come into their own when travelling! Although one of the first places I go on a cruise is the library. to choose a book by someone new to me!

  7. Hi Patsy. Thanks for the link and I've downloaded the book you suggested. I still prefer real books, though, more especially so since I only have kindle for pc at the moment.

  8. Thanks, Cowboy.

    Rosemary, I will be using the on board library. We have lots of sea days so plenty of reading and writing time.

    Thanks, Kitty. I will try posting up pictures.

    Jacula, I read ebooks on my pc too. I expect the readers would be better if I were to read lots of ebooks.

  10. Thanks for the links. I don't mind free e-books. They are all that I read now. BTW, I just finished Escape to the Country and loved it! I learned so much about the farm. And the cancer scare, that was a scary situation... anyways, I don't want to give away to much to the other visitors. Buy the book, people!

  11. Still not convinced that I need an e.book, but looking forward to reading Escape to the Country in book form.

  12. Trouble is, I find that the paper versions on my shelf are noticeable and I pick them up from my to-read pile and remember to read them - but all the ones I have on Kindle get forgotten...

  16. You're welcome, Lily.

    Thank you, Clarissa!

    And thank you too, Maggie.

    Liz, I confess there are some I've downloaded and never opened. Might get around to them eventually though.

    Thanks, Maria. I agree that reading is good for the soul, you know especially romances set on farms ... Well, it's good for my soul to know people are reading it!

    It is, Anna - and of course we may discover great authors and buy other books from them too.

    Doing both so far, Diane.
