Lately I’ve been posting a list of 10 free Kindle ebooks each week, usually on Sundays. I used to post lists of free Kobo ebooks too, but somewhere along the line Kobo removed their free ebooks section and made it practically impossible to find free ebooks on their website.
Kobo has been redesigning their website again (it’s kind of a continual thing that never ends). A while back they brought back their free ebook section. In fact it’s quite a bit different than it used to be.
There are now three different pages that list free ebooks, including a foreign language section and a curated selection of titles from Freebooksy.
Checkout Kobo’s free ebook section to find their list of free titles.
These 10 Kobo ebooks below are free as of July 19th, 2015. Please note that most of these titles are free for a limited-time only and could expire in a few days or hours.
You don’t have to own a Kobo ereader to take advantage of these freebies. Kobo has apps for iPhone/iPad, Android, Blackberry, and Windows phones. They also have desktop application for PC and Mac.
Most of Kobo’s ebooks are available to download in Adobe ePub format as well, and will work with any device or app that supports Adobe DRM.

Things become even more tangled when he sends Patrick O’Neil “on vacation” to keep an eye on her. Aelissm is pretty sure her uncle is playing matchmaker again, but despite her annoyance, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Pat.
