7 free books @ Copia (ADE ePub) - Bob Dylan, YA, Baseball [Limited Time Offer]

As a time-limited special celebration, Copia are offering 7 free assorted Bob Dylan, YA fiction, and baseball titles (6 of them not previously freebied) in ADE-DRM ePub, which you can get by downloading and installing their app. They don't seem to be geo-restricted, but use Ye Olde VPN IP Proxy if you're feeling paranoid.

First set up an account at their website and download and register the software. Then follow the following* links to "purchase" the books (Copia's instructions warn you must click the Buy Now button), reload the Copia software, and double-click the books in your Library to download the ePub copies.

For Bob Dylan's 70th birthday today, the free e-book offer is A Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1957-1973, about the stories behind Dylan's lyrics, courtesy of the Chicago Review Press. This may only be available for one day, so get it while you still can at the product page here.

American icon Bob Dylan blows out 70 candles Tuesday. To celebrate, we're giving away free copies of Revolution in the Air, devoted to stories behind the lyrics of more than 300 Dylan songs. Written by noted Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin, this fascinating 443-page ebook is a must-have for casual fans and fanatics. Normally a $23.95 value, it's yours free.

For one week, a special author's edition of the YA novel Miss Entropia and the Adam Bomb, annotated by the author George Rabasa, will be free exclusively via Copia, courtesy of publisher Unbridled books. This will be valid until May 30th; product page here.

No other obsession strikes as hard as the love that hits a teenaged boy — especially if he’s the sort of kid who is no saner than he wants to be. From the moment Adam Webb sees Francine Haggard—in the van that is supposed to return them to the Institute Loiseaux—the two young mental patients are inextricably connected. Adam will never let this girl go. From hiding her in his bedroom to spiriting her away to Minnesota’s north woods, “Miss Entropia” becomes the focus of Adam’s every thought and of everything he does. He believes her to be a goddess, his own goddess. But the pyromaniacal Miss Entropia will be neither worshiped nor owned. And so Adam’s possessiveness is destined to push her to the breaking point. Theirs is an incendiary love story, an unbalanced Romeo and Juliet, that spins and arcs its way strangely toward tragedy.

Five baseball-related titles are available for an unspecified time. W.P. Kinsella's Shoeless Joe, basis of the movie Field of Dreams was already offered via Copia's introductory signup offer, but Mark Harris' Bang the Drum Slowly, apparently another baseball fiction classic, is free courtesy of publisher Rosetta Books.

There are also three non-fiction books of trivia and anecdotes in the Baseball's/World Series' Most Wanted line, courtesy of publisher Potomac Books.

You can find them all via the special promo page for the lot here, and they offer up to 40% off other baseball-related books as well.

Happy reading!

Is anyone else having trouble with the pdf files? The epubs open with ADE, but the pdfs will only open in Copia, not ADE.

I got Little Caesar to open in ADE, but had to try a couple times.

Yes, I finally got that one to open too, but not the three baseball pdfs. And I don't see a way to redownload the files.

Little Ceasar downloaded with a null file name (just ".pdf") for me. Had to change it's name and it worked in ADE just fine. On the other hand, I can't get the first volume of the baseball stats to load into my account, at all (got vol 2 and the world series).

Ditto on Little Caesar. I got one of the baseball volumes to open in ADE, but only as a single blank page. Now I've just given up, may try to redownload tomorrow, as everything about Copia has been wonky for me today.

I have downloaded two of these books- Passage to India and Heat of the night into my Copia Reader. Is there any way I can transfer these either to the Kindle or Literati ?

I think the site must have gone kerflooey. When I first tried it this morning, I could not log in (I had an account already). I know I was using the correct username/password, but it wouldn't accept them. Then I finally clicked "forgot password" and had a new one sent to me, and the site wouldn't accept that, either--said I'd had too many failed log-in attempts. Well, duh. That's why I requested the new password! But after a while it let me request another password, and accepted that one.

ETA: I'm officially disgusted with Copia. It won't let me remove the screwy books--I get an error message--which I'm trying to do so I can re-"buy" them. Even freebies shouldn't be quite this frustrating.
