Free Book - Stupid History (E)

Stupid History: Tales of Stupidity, Strangeness, and Mythconceptions Through the Ages ($7.99 Kindle), by Leland Gregory, is free over at Copia. This was free on Kindle back in Nov '10, but under a different ASIN (feel free to report the lower price on the new edition; maybe it will go free too) and then for NOOK in June of last year. Might as well collect a full set, though, so I've downloaded this one.

While you are at Copia, you might also want to check out their $0.99 Humor Books Sale, which features titles such as I Love You More Than Beer, Women Are from Venus Men Are Idiots and Idiots in Charge (amongst a few others).

Book Description
If it would shock you to learn that Benjamin Franklin didn't discover electricity, you'll appreciate this take on hundreds of historical legends and debacles. Historians and humorists alike may be surprised to learn that:

Samuel Prescott made the famous horseback ride into Concord, not Paul Revere. As a member of Parliament, Isaac Newton spoke only once. He asked for an open window. On April 24, 1898, Spain declared war on the U.S., thus starting the Spanish-American War. The U.S. declared war the very next day, but not wanting to be outdone, had the date on the declaration changed from April 25 to April 21.With these and many other stories, leading humorist Leland Gregory once again highlights both the strange and the funny side of humankind.


Get the free ebook from Copia.

Can't see a "Settings/Purchase History". Should I join up and then expect to see that?

Yup, that's what I did. Any old name and email will do, doesn't need to be verified to d/l, so I didn't even have to use one of my throwaways. :-)

I do the same now and ignore Copia's ill-behaved software.
