FREE Nook Books

They say that you learn something new everyday. Today was one of those days. And when what I learned involves free stuff, then it's a double whammy kind of day!

I bought my Nook last year. I have the regular, original one. I know that some people love the feel & smell of an actual book. I'm not one of them. Actually, I don't usually go around sniffing books either.
I love everything about my Nook. It's easy on the eyes since it uses e-ink technology. I can make the font larger which helps my aging eyes. I can carry a gazillion books on board the plane without adding extra baggage fees. I can sit on the beach, under my umbrella with a froo-froo drink in one hand and my Nook in the other, and I can still turn the pages. I can go on & on. But let me just go straight to the "Free" part. One great perk. is the fact that Barnes & Noble offers free e-books.

If you know me, you know that I love FREE! Not only do they have Free Fridays, where they offer one or sometimes two, free e-books, but they also have a separate category on their website for free Nook books. Under that category, you get 5 pages with about 100 free titles. That's all well & good right?

Well, today, I discovered a way to find even more free selections. Forget typing FREE in the search box, that will only bring up a couple of extra selections. The secret is typing 0.00 in the search box! Easy as that! You will be shown 1830871 results for 0.00. You can also narrow it down by choosing a genre on the left hand side. Just click on Nook books under Category. I don't know if I will ever make it through all those, but I sure intend to try!

Pick and choose what interests you. Be aware that some may be short stories or previews. You'll need to sift through it and weed out the duds. Ratings and reviews help too.You might also find an author that you really like. If you don't like a selection that you downloaded, delete it. You have nothing to lose. I'm sure that some people may already know about this, but I am sharing it anyways in case there are more out there like me!

Happy FREE reading!
