Round-Up of FREE eBooks & and Audiobook (Non-Amazon)!

October 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Okay, it does seem like I mostly just post freebies from Amazon – but it’s because Amazon is the one who releases so many freebies for the Kindle (even if some are the blink and you’ll miss it kind). Anyway, if you look around the web, there’s a couple more free eBooks out there… I’ll post a sort of round-up here, and if I miss any that you know about, how about posting in the comment section?

Kaplan New GRE: An Introduction to the GRE Revised General Test‘ by Kaplan is available for FREE download on the Sony eBook store site (The Kindle edition would cost you $0.99 is now free!) Just click here to download!

Book Description:

The GRE is changing in August 2011! What can you expect from the GRE revised General Test? Should you take the test now or wait? These questions and more are answered in this introduction to the new exam. In the most sweeping changes to the test in its history, every aspect of the GRE General Test will change in 2011

  • Longer test: With more sections and questions focused on reasoning and critical thinking, the test will now be longer than the current GRE.
  • New scoring rubric: With a 130-170 score scale in 1-point increments (vs. 200-800 in 10-point increments on the current GRE), it will be more challenging to differentiate your score from the competition.
  • New test experience: The Multi-Stage Test format, a new form of computer-based functionality, will allow users to move back and forth within a specific subject.
  • New and different question types: Every section will have new question types.
  • In: More reading comprehension and data analysis questions; Out: Antonyms and analogies.

What does all of this mean for you and your graduate school aspirations? Kaplan will walk you through the changes and help you make decisions that will enable you to become a strong graduate school applicant when the time is right.

But Lillia Venn, as reigning Grand Lord of the Sith, possesses absolute power . . . and is determined to keep it.

In 1982 Victorian police were called to a home on a housing estate an hour west of Melbourne. There, they found a five-year-old boy lying on the carpet. There were no obvious signs of trauma, but the child, Jacob, died the next day.The story made the headlines and hundreds attended the funeral. Few people were surprised when the boy’s mother and her boyfriend went to prison for the crime. Police declared themselves satisfied with the result, saying there was no doubt that justice had been done. And yet, for years rumours swept the estate and clung like cobwebs to the long-vacant house: there had been a cover-up. The real perpetrator, at least according to local gossip, was the boy’s six-year-old sister, Lauren…Twenty years on, Lauren has created a new life for herself, but details of Jacob’s death being to resurface and the story again makes the newspapers. As Lauren struggles with the ghosts of her childhood, it seems only a matter of time before the past catches up with her.

Hammer and Bolter, Issue #1 (Black Library Digital)‘ is available for FREE download on the Black Library Digital (There is no Kindle version). Just click here to download (epub or mobi)! You might also want to check out the other freebies listed on the site if you missed them before.

Magazine Description:

Hammer and Bolter is a monthly publication that will bring you the best in Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, Horus Heresy and Time of Legends fiction from a mix of established names and hot new talent in a download-only format. This first issue is a perfect snapshot of what you can expect in the months ahead.

Dan Abnett pens the return of an old friend from his Eisenhorn sequence in ‘The Strange Demise of Titus Endor’ and we’ve also snuck in a sneak preview of the first chapter of Prospero Burns to keep you ticking over until its release in January 2011. Anthony Reynolds once more ventures into the realm of Brettonia and the travels of noble Calard with a novella-length tale entitled ‘Questing Knight’. In a first for Black Library, Ben Counter and the Soul Drinkers return in the form of Phalanx – a novel serialised over the first year of Hammer and Bolter’s publication. Nick Kyme swings by to face The Inquisition and is interrogated about his current projects and future plans. The hot new talent angle is covered by Sarah Cawkwell and the first portrayal of the Silver Skulls chapter by a Black Library author in ‘Primary Instinct’.

And, something that we certainly won’t be able to repeat but had to include in the premier issue of such an exciting new venture, ‘A Place of Quiet Assembly’, a previously unpublished tale of Gotrek & Felix by genre legend John Brunner! Originally written back in the early nineties for the very first line of Warhammer fiction, the story has been sitting on various hard drives for the past two decades and, as far as we’re aware anyway, is the last remaining unpublished short story by the Stand on Zanzibar author who sadly died in 1995.
