Be still our little ebook-lovin’ hearts. The Suvudu free library from Random House offers the first book of several popular series for free, baby, free! Titles include Blood Engines from T.A. Pratt, His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik, Settling Accounts: Return Engagements by Harry Turtledove, Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson, and Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb.
Coming soon: Terry Brooks’s Magic Kingdom for Sale—Sold! and Elizabeth Moon’s Trading in Danger. I am all over that Novik freebie like static-prone socks on hot flannel sheets. SonomaLass says, “I personally can rave about the Robin Hobb and the Naomi Novik series, both are among my favorite fantasy series. I’m excited about the T.A. Pratt title, because his series has been on my “to try” list for a while now. ”
We stop now for some Woe: currently only PDFs are available, though folks commenting are asking for Mobipocket or MSReader since PDF is rather unfriendly to many PDAs and readers, particularly in the formatting department. I can understand the frustration. PDFs often render terribly on ebook readers, and while free is awesome, it’s also a benefit to battery life to have a product that does not require extra page turns to move past several blank pages in a row.
