Kobo Touch - should a library of free books come with it?

I've had mine for a week or so and loving it, but I seem to have read somewhere that it should come with about 100 free books already loaded on it. If this is so how would I access them? It's no huge deal as I'm accessing them separately via the library, but I just wondered.

The Kobo WiFi came with 100 free books. The Touch came with 15 free previews. You can find them in the library under previews.

Note that the "100 free books" were all public domain offerings, all of which you can grab from Project Gutenberg.

I like Feedbooks.com myself because the books are nicely formatted, and most of them come with covers.

All those Project Gutenberg books seem to be available for free from the Kobo Store, although the formatting is no better.

Kobo has all those previously advertised 100 free ones (basically, copyright free classics that are available in lots of places including Project Gutenberg), plus the odd promotional freebie all on their website. http://www.kobobooks.com/free_ebooks
