View Full Version : Pixels of Ink (FREE e-books)

01-10-2012, 03:13 AM
Have you guys heard about Pixels of Ink? It's a site that lets you know about FREE e-books that are available for Kindle and Nook. I have gotten a TON of really great books thanks to them.

They also have 2 sister sites: Inspired Reads & Pixels of Ink - Young Edition. Since I like Christian novels and teen literature also, I have also subscribed to these sites as well. You can either sign up for a daily e-mail alterting you to the new free books or you can "Like" them on Facebook and get updates that way.

Check it out!

I wanted to share a couple other good places to get free books for Kindle (or other e-readers!)

I can't keep up with all the free books out there & have found some AMAZING reads for free. I've found that some authors will give away the first in a series ~ and more than once I've gone on to buy the remaining books because I love them so much! :)

I have a Kobo - does the same format work for Kobo as for Kindle and/or Nook?

According to Wiki, Kobo eReaders support ePUB (http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/EPUB), PDF (http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/PDF), and Adobe ADE. Beginning with 1.8.1 for the Kobo-1, the reader also displays RTF, txt, html and a variety of image formats.

Nooks typically use ePubs, and Kindles typically use AZW (though both readers can use a couple other formats, too...like PDF). I think you would probably be fine with purchasing books for the Nook, since ePubs work for both. However, if you find a book in another format you'd like to read, there's a program mentioned in THIS THREAD (http://forums.gingerscraps.net/showthread.php?20738-No-Nook-Kindle-or-Library-access-No-worries!) that can help. :)
