With all the free ebooks floating around on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble, I have to admit that for a while I went a little crazy. I downloaded books by authors I wouldn’t normally read to try them out, which is exactly why authors offer their books for free or at a low price point. They’re trying to reach readers who have not read their work yet, with the hope that you’ll then buy their other works.
Since all my excitement over the freebies has died down, I’ve drastically reduced the number of books I download. I had to admit to myself there’s no way I’d ever get around to reading all those books.
However, I know there are people who read way more than I do. In fact, I used to think I was an avid reader until I discovered readers on Goodreads and other social media sites who fly through twelve or more books per month. My paltry four or five is laughable next to those stats. (By the way, if you’re on Goodreads, send me a friend request. I like to see what other people are reading.)
So, this blog post serves two purposes. Authors will find other avenues for advertising their books. It’s also for all you avid readers. In addition to the books you buy, you now have a list of places where you can find free and low-cost ebooks to further indulge your addition.
