Question about the 100 free books from Sony

I was just curious whether you have to buy directly thru their website in order to get the free books or is it once you register your reader from wherever you buy it you can get them? Also, I know this is going to be hard to answer but are there very many books that I would even want to read? I know that everyone has different preferences but I guess I'm asking if there is alot of variety.
Thanks!

You get them after you register your Reader, through Sony's site. It's not just any free books, they are the $1.99 classics that Sony offers. Lots of good book in there.

You can get all of them here also (and more) without registering your Reader. I prefer the Sony ones (larger margins), but a lot of people prefer the ones here on MobileRead.

Scroll up on this page, and on the blue bar click "ebooks." Then select Sony Reader. They'll come up.

What other stores were you thinking about?

I prefer the books on mobileread. For me smaller margins = less page turns. If you've never delved into classics try some of the shorter, easier to read authors like Jules Verne, H.G. Wells or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes).

When, oh when, are they going to make that "ebooks" link big, red, and flashing? It just vanishes into the background.

Same for the wiki link.

To browse the books on offer go to the Sony website and click on a subject category such as Fiction & Literature or Science Fiction then narrow the search to 'ebook store classics'. These are the free books you can choose from. There is quite a good selection and worth having a look at. There is definitely a good selection here as well!
