From time to time I find free ebooks on the web that might be of interest to blog readers. They may be downloaded to an ereader or read online. The first book I highlighted was Men of Hawaii which is available for free at Google Books.
This one is for the history buffs. If you have a Barnes and Noble online account, you can snatch up a copy of today’s free ebook. It’s “Stupid History: Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions” by Leland Gregory.
It’s this weeks Friday Freebie at Barnes and Noble. You can download it to your Nook, your PC, or other smart reader. If you don’t have a Nook, you will need Nook for PC, Adobe Digital Editions, or some other ebook application in order to read it.
I haven’t read this book yet. But it looks like a fun, light approach to history. It’s filled with lesser known details about Paul Revere, Isaac Newton, Lizzie Borden, Thomas Edison, and more.
Some ebooks aren’t free forever, so be sure to download it soon in case the price changes.
