It's one of the things that really puts me off Sony - they don't give UK people anything - no, hang on, they DID give away 3 freebie chapters of a couple of books at Xmas! Mustn't be greedy, now!! And then it was a real pain to download as it had to be unzipped first even though it was only about 15 pages long.

Seriously, I would think about getting a Kindle next time as at least you could look forward to getting some freebies from Amazon, without feeling like a child with his face pressed up against the window of the sweetshop!!!

My condolences. Can you at least get freebies from Kobo? I know they probably don't have nearly as many for the UK as they do for North America, but I imagine that at least the Harlequins and maybe some of the Christian fiction might be available worldwide.

Also, thanks OP for sharing the coupon! I've been putting off buying a particular book for awhile because I wasn't sure if it would pop up cheaper elsewhere, but it seems to still have the lowest current price at Sony and is discount-eligible, so now I can pick it up.

We do get some Kobo stuff, and romance from Harlequin, but not that much that interests me. Never mind!

Just join the Singapore Library. It is for free and they have tenthousends of epub (and mobi. btw) books available. Lending time is 21 days. They have a thread about it here.

You can also check through Inkmesh for freebies.

Or do the deDRM thingy and get Amazons and B&N freebies, too.

Bump because this is the last weekend for the discount and someone might like to save 20% off a non-Agency book.
