So you’ve gotten a new ereader for Christmas and now need to start adding some ebooks to its virtual shelves. Here’s a list to get you started on some free ebooks and ebook deals from Amazon, Borders, B&N, and Kobo.
Note that Kindle ebooks work on Kindle devices and software only. The same goes for B&N’s ebooks in regards to the Nook and Nook software. However, Nook devices are compatible with ebooks from Borders and Kobo since they use Adobe DRM. And ebooks from Borders and Kobo work with any device/software that supports Adobe EPUB and PDF.
Kobo – New customers get 35% off the purchase of their first ebook with promo code firstbook at KoboBooks.
Borders – Borders has several lists for deals for a limited time:
$5 eBooks at Borders
- Mysteries and Thrillers
- Science Fiction and Fantasy
- Great Fiction
- Great Non-Fiction
- Kids and Young Adult
Amazon – Amazon pretty much has the same titles on sale that Borders does, just without the organized lists. Here’s the link.
