Free book (Kindle/Nook) - 101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History [History]

101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History: People, Places, Culture and Tradition of the Emerald Isle by Ryan & Amy Hackney Blackwell is a pop-history book, free courtesy of publisher Adams Media.

Currently free @ Amazon UK. Has a chance of showing up at B&N, since Adams Media seem to have been distributing their freebies to both the majors lately. Kindle US-store link so you can pricedrop-check at your convenience.

Incidentally, it seems you can derive bonus entertainment from comparing the Amazon US & UK listings (see who they think the author is, and his credentials!) and view the mixed-up review for some US Civil War book that's currently being counted towards this Irish history thing.

Description
Forget about shamrocks, leprechauns, and all that blarney, 101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History dispels the myths and tells the true stories of the Irish. Inside, you'll learn about about:

* Lives of the ancient Celts until the British invasions
* Famous Irish including Michael Collins, Charles Parnell-and Bono!
* The Potato Famine and Immigration (were there really gangs of New York?)
* Irish music and dance
* Folklore, faeries, and leprechauns

Complete with a Irish language primer and pronunciation guide, 101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History is an informative reference for anyone who loves the Irish!

Whee, free for Canadians now! Also free for US and hopefully elsewhere.

Free at B&N (but double check the price, as when I refreshed the page, it showed full price and then back to zero on another refresh; it did go thru at $0 when I purchased it)

If the nook version is DRM free (not likely, but I know the Samhain titles there are), it would work as is; otherwise, the DRM would have to be removed before it would work on a non-nook device/app.

Careful: I had some issues with it being "free" (at some points in the transaction it said free, at other points it said $7.96) and they charged me for the book. I've put in a request to have it refunded. But check your account.

I always double check both before and after purchasing at B&N ... that one kept changing prices: free, then full price, then free again on refreshes inside of a 30 second window.
