A long time ago there was a revolution in books. Gutenberg, that’s what people say his name was, defeated the evil sorcerers who kept books from the common people and spread them freely.

It triggered a great many things, most of them good. Of course, it also led to the spread of dangerous ideas like sparkly vampires and naughty naughty billionaires. However, for the most part, it led to good things and even some great things.

Today, we are in the midst of a similar revolution. Again, the number of people with access to books is set to quadruple. The amount of books people can access will quadruple too. Perhaps most importantly, every one gets to write the book they have always wanted to write and share their story. They will get to have it read by other people without someone in an ivory tower deciding if their story and their words are ‘good enough’.

If Freedom of Speech is an inalienable right, then perhaps Freedom to Write your Book and Freedom for your Book to Be Read should be inalienable rights too.

We are blessed to be foot soldiers in the 2nd great revolution of Books and Reading. Let’s make the most of it.

  1. I can’t seem to find a link for how to submit books to you. I have a free day coming up on 5/16/13, though, for my short story collection, Cinderella Shoes. It contains 15 stories, in a variety of styles and genres. I’d love to list it with you. You can email me at nicwilson.writer at gmail.com to get more details on it.

    1. Best – Leave a comment the day the book is free if it’s free 2 days. IF it’s free just 1 day then leave a comment the day before. If you leave it longer in advance we’ll perhaps miss it.

  2. Science Fiction novel THE GRASSHOPPER REVOLUTION

    In the future, when corporate mercenaries attempt a hostile takeover of the First World Government, the technology they hijack turns against them and instigates the awakening of robot consciousness.

  3. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know that I have a special promotion on Kindle coming up where my first book, The Dreamers (YA/MG Science Fiction/Fantasy) will be available for free to celebrate the release of its second edition.
    It’ll be free on Thursday September 26th through Saturday September 28.

    “The Dreamers: A Story of Sam Kullen” at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005JTAFHK has 13 Reviews with a four star average.

    About: Sam is a Dreamer. This means that he can live inside of his dreams. In them, he must stop the evil Malfix from taking over not just the Dream Realm, but earth as well. Sam’s adventures bring him through races, mazes, explosions, battles, and yes, the occasional cheesy knock-knock joke.

    Here is where you can find me online.

    Thanks for letting your readers know about this free book promotion!


    1. No problem. Just let me know in 3 months.

      If it’s mentioned in September then just 1.5 to 2 months later there aren’t enough new users to make a mention worthwhile. Best of luck with your promotion.

    1. Billy it was already mentioned December 3rd. WE only mention free books once every 6 months. So we can’t mention it in 2014 Jan. You can contact us in June or later and we’ll mention it then.

    1. Fix what?

      I added the book to the list yesterday.

      Cover graphic? There’s no option to add a cover graphic. If you’re asking how to add a cover graphic to OUR BLOG POST, then you’re being too pushy. Don’t.

  4. So sorry switch11 – I set up Amazon to promote the book for free from the 1st – 5th March but it seems there is a delay. I am sure it will be free in the next couple of hours so please check back and try again. Trisha x

  5. Just wanted to say thank you for creating this website and posting free tittles every day. I really appreciate what you’re doing. There’s so many interesting non fiction tittles!

  6. I wanted to tell you that yours is THE best free (plus a few bargain) newsletter/list for Kindle out there, so far. I’ve tried, seriously every single one I can find and yours is so much more comprehensive (most other lists have, maybe, 20-25 books, most of which are paid) and contains almost all free with the few bargain books separated at the bottom, clearly stating that these are paid.
    Thank you for a job so very well done.
