September 28, 2010 Leave a comment

Hey, the Sony Reader store has graced us with two freebies! One is a new one in freebies – a manga comic! and the other one is an ‘inspirational’ book… Take note that the eBooks will be in ADE ePub format, so any ADE ePub reader can access it in case you don’t have the Sony Reader or the Sony PC app.

Daniel and Daughter‘ by Mayu Takayama (and Lucy Gordon) is available for download on the Sony Reader site. Just click here to download! It’s the comic book/manga adaptation of Lucy Gordon’s novel. (Update: As of right now Sept 29 1AM EDT, it’s no longer free, sorry if you missed it!)

Book Description:

When she was 16, photographer Lee went to Gretna Green, the Elopement Capital of Scotland, where she could get married without her parents’ consent. However, she soon divorces, taking her daughter with her. She has had enough of men, but 13 years later, she meets Daniel, who tries everything in his power to seduce her.

Meanwhile, Lee’s brother is in a passionate relationship with Daniel’s daughter. The two lovers decide to elope to Gretna Green just as Lee did all those years ago. Lee chases after them with a bitter feeling in her heart…

FREE eBook Download – Brain Over Brawn: Smart Solutions to Regain and Maintain Strength, Health & Youth by Clint Cornelius C.S.C.S.

Brain Over Brawn: Smart Solutions to Regain and Maintain Strength, Health & Youth‘ by Clint Cornelius C.S.C.S. is available for FREE download on the author’s website. Just click here to download!

The paperback would cost you $16.99, but the author is offering the eBook version (in PDF format) with the hope that you will like it, recommend it to family & friends, write a review maybe AND buy a hardcopy for your collection. In case the title didn’t tip you off, this book is about attaining fitness and teaches about nutrition & exercise.

Book Description:

An owner’s manual for the human body.
*for all ages, makes and models
*use only as directed
*one size fits all

Satisfaction, strength and health by sleeping in, eating frequently, and playing like a child.

(From the introduction)

This is a book for humans. If you are human, this is for you. (If you are a dog or cat, bear or otter, reptile or other homo sapienally-challenged being, stop reading immediately. Besides, you already know what’s in this book. The more subtle distinction of man or woman, child or elderly, motivated or lazy, bored or busy, over- or under-educated, artist or executive, does not alter the relevance of what you re about to read: If you are a human, this information will apply.

In a way, this book was designed to perform the opposite function of a traditional book (a bizarro-book, if you will); its goal is to help you reduce the already bloated amounts of information fed to you by the diet, nutrition, and exercise industries much of which is outdated, inaccurate, misleading or incomplete. We as a species are rapidly becoming as obese and inundated with data as our bodies are with food. Your best defense is knowledge, so you may quickly discern useful information from marketing gimmicks, outright scams, or otherwise legitimate programs that range anywhere from inefficient to downright dangerous. And that is the goal of this book: to teach you to fish, rather than sell you an auto-renewing fish subscription or the latest in fishing pole technology, as it were.

  1. The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel By Michael Scott

    The truth: Nicholas Flamel was born in Paris on September 28, 1330. Nearly 700 years later, he is acknowledged as the greatest Alchemyst of his day. It is said that he discovered the secret of eternal life. The records show that he died in 1418. But his tomb is empty.

    The legend: Nicholas Flamel lives. But only because he has been making the elixir of life for centuries. The secret of eternal life is hidden within the book he protects — the Book of Abraham the Mage. It’s the most powerful book that has ever existed. In the wrong hands, it will destroy the world. That’s exactly what Dr. John Dee plans to do when he steals it. Humankind won’t know what’s happening until it’s too late. And if the prophecy is right, Sophie and Josh Newman are the only ones with the power to save the world as we know it.

    Sometimes legends are true. And Sophie and Josh Newman are about to find themselves in the middle of the greatest legend of all time.

Another Useful FREE E-Book for the Aspiring Author

February 25, 2010 Leave a comment

I found another FREE e-book that could be useful to the aspiring author (to add to the books I posted about before).

For a limited time, you can download this ebook ‘The Storyteller’s Art: How Not to Bore Your Reader to Sleep, Tears, or Homicide’ by Francis Porretto. That title’s a mouthful, but I think it’d be interesting to check out the author’s suggestions, and it’s free anyway.

Ebook Description:

Do you want to tell memorable, vivid, life-altering stories? With plots that embed real knowledge about the natures and ways of men? Do you want to create characters that will haunt your readers’ dreams? Do you want to learn the discipline to unite all the above, without overdressing your plots or distoring your characters to make them serve a theme for which they’re ill-equipped? Start here!

If you’re interested, just check it out on Smashwords!

FREE E-Book Download – The Joy of Pregnancy: The Complete, Candid, and Reassuring Companion for Parents-to-Be (Kindle Edition) by Tori Kropp

February 11, 2010 Leave a comment

So, how many of you bought a Kindle this Christmas? Well, time to fill it up with freebies!

Here’s a freebie for all the expectant parents out there! For a limited time, ‘The Joy of Pregnancy: The Complete, Candid, and Reassuring Companion for Parents-to-Be‘ by Tori Kropp is available for FREE download on the Amazon Kindle site. Just click here to download and save yourself $14.95.

Book Description:

Are you expecting… mystery, sensuality, wonder, and delight? If you are pregnant, you should be! Pregnancy isn’t all about nausea and medical tests; it’s also a time of excitement, anticipation, and above all, joy. You don’t need to adopt a strict diet, adhere to a demanding exercise regimen, or spend your time worrying about planning the perfect birth. Rather, you can trust your instincts and your body to guide you through the amazing, magical process of pregnancy and childbirth.

That’s the wise, expert counsel of Tori Kropp, perinatal nurse and founder of both a popular childbirth-education program and a website for new parents. In The Joy of Pregnancy, Tori tells you what you need to know how the baby is developing, how your body is changing, and how to prepare for the birth and baby without overwhelming you. She has organized the book month by month, so you can learn at your leisure as you progress through pregnancy.

Also included are Q&As, fun facts, and sections just for Dad. With Tori’s help, both of you can enjoy and celebrate this very special season of your lives.
