Free Financial Times Press books on Amazon/Barnes & Noble

I was interested in this week's FT Press Deal of the Week: Saving for Retirement by Gail Marks-Jarvis, so I figured I'd go to Amazon to see what the reviews looked like. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the Kindle version is free right now... free is better than $10, right?

Anyway, I noticed several of FT Press's books are free right now on Amazon, so I figured I'd post some links in case anyone else is interested in any of them. I've seen a few other free FT Press ones posted on here from time to time. I'm not sure what the occasion is, but here they are. Looks like they're also free in the UK, but not Canada. YMMV.

Saving for Retirement (Without Living Like a Pauper or Winning the Lottery) Updated and Revised by Gail Marks-Jarvis (Aug 6, 2012)

I wish I'd known that last time. EPUB is my preferred format.

B&N almost always matches the FT Press titles (not always, most nearly all the time; now and then B&N even has one that Kindle does not).

I've been buying them directly from FTPress when they run a deal of the week on one I like. The collections are almost always only available as a watermarked PDF, so getting a collection from B&N in EPUB format is a plus.

These should probably be merged with the non-fiction thread:

DEFINITELY!! free is so much better than $10
I always download free ebooks on Amazon. Good thing you saw a free one with the topic you're searching for.
