  1. Or one could simply go to Kobo’s Free e-books page and skip the account creation process. The first seven e-books listed are free from Smashwords, Outlander (the pick of the litter) has been free from other e-book stores for a while, and the last two are free short stories from Tor/Tom Doherty.

    By the way, wrong title on that last item. 🙂

    • Thanks for pointing out the title. Never said these were new free ebooks :). Also, you still need an account because you have to sign in to download them. Or you could just go to Smashwords for most of them, like you said.
