Almost Free! Sport, Culture and Society by Grant Jarvie (Sony Reader)

The Sony eBook Store has the recent textbook Sport, Culture and Society: An Introduction by Grant Jarvie right now for $0.01. This text sells at Amazon for $190 (used or new), and the Kindle version is $45.

Is there any way to read their books without the actual sony ereader hardware?

They've had free books before, but I didn't bother, as I could not see any way to read them.

Thanks Patricia - that worked (after a couple of retries at the Sony end to create an account - for those interested, you can skip the billing info setup, so you don't have to give them your CC# right away) and I was able to download this week's freebie. Looks like they will be giving a book away every week this month.
