This is so awesome! I just signed up for their daily newsletter for all the newly added (probably the books with the best value) books!

Let's hope the developer never becomes a librarian, because he/she has no idea about classification systems. For example, I was startled that the "History" section contains mostly fiction titles. Ridiculous.

There's a Historical Study section.

Linda, sites like those mentioned in this tread are to help you find free books on Amazon. You still have to make sure the book is still offered for free, before you buy it. Many times, books are only free for a short time, a day, perhaps just a few hours.

Of course Amazon charges for books. They are a retail site, not a library.

Why should Amazon give you a refund because you failed to pay attention to the price? Ebook prices can change at any time, so books listed as free on a website may not be free by the time you go to buy it.

Why would amazon care what some other random site says? I could make a website and say on it that all the harry potter books are free. That doesn't mean that amazon has to honor what my website says.

I haven't looked at the site above, but if you're finding that the books listed aren't free, chances are good that it's no longer being updated.

I use ereaderiq.com which is usually pretty good, but you still have to check prices before buying, since prices change all the time, and they only update the website about once a day.

I don't know why you are complainign about no refund. You can return a book for a refund within 7 days of purchase, as long as you don't do it too often...

I must be missing something. When I go to that site, it is a Barnes an Noble site for Nooks. Can someone post a link? Thanks!

Did I already post the "Linda, sweetie, listen..." video for you?

Look in the upper left corner - you can change that to Amazon from a drop-down menu.

Thanks! Now, I see the drop down menu. I must be having an off-day :)

I second TuxGirl's recommendation of ereaderiq.com . I use it to monitor my favorite authors for price drops.

I also note that many times books that are offered for free by other retailers will be free at Amazon. For example, the Free Friday Nook Book is usually free at Amazon.com at the same time (today is a rare exception). I also get daily emails from BookShout but rather than adding the free book to my bookshout account I look on Amazon.com and it has always been free. The advantage of looking at things like BookShout and Free Friday Nook Book is that they have gone through a more rigorous selection process and are generally better quality.

For those of you that read mostly non-fiction, I would suggest signing up for emails from Charles River Editors. They have lots of free biographies and history books.

Open Road Media http://www.openroadmedia.com/newsletters also has daily newsletters highlighting which of their books are free or deeply discounted. Most of their free books are classics, although today's free book is a modern version of Tarzan where he is now an ecowarrior.
