Free books, are they a good deal?

Most of my posts for November are going to be short – I’m participating in NaNoWriMo and need to spend most of my time writing new material.

Today, let’s talk about free books. One of the reasons to go electronic for your reading is free books. These freebies are an eapicture of a Kindle Reading Devise on a flat backgroundsy way to test out a new author.

Where to find free books

There are a few sites I follow on Facebook that promote free ebooks. These books are often but not always indie authors.

If you follow them on Facebook, you’ll find postings in your stream about free books at least three times a day.

Is it worth the time to download?

I’d say there are three categories; I couldn’t get past the first few pages, I read it but it wasn’t great, or I loved it and bought more from that author. About a third go into the first bucket and then about 50% into the second one.

I’ve found about six new authors that I love and will continue to buy their work as it comes out.

The time to download? Well, it’s only a few clicks so how can it not be worth it?

I recommend giving it a try, you really have nothing to lose.
