Free books for Sony & kindle

I noticed this earlier on Amazon that Random house is offering free downloads of several books. According to Amazon its available free until February. Pretty cool, 5 of these books were things I was definitely wanting to read and the rest looks good as well. the free downloads are up at the Sony store now as well:

Prague- Arthur Phillips
Caught Stealing- Charlie Huston
Six bad things- Charlie Huston
Murder List- Julie Garwood
The Foreign Correspondent- Alan First
The Idiot Girl & The Flaming Tantrum of Death- Laurie Notaro
Free-Range Chickens- Simon Rich
The Whiskey Rebels- David Liss
A dangerous man- Charlie Huston

And the link is....?

I didn't notice it on Amazon's main page. (Perhaps I need more coffee )

Note: I'm locating and downloading them title-by-title from the Sony site.

The versions for the Kindle are on Amazon and the version for Sony Readers are at Sony. All you have to do is search for them to get them for free.

By the way, is there a way to search on Sony's ebook Library site for any titles whose price is equal to $0.00 ?

Thanks, just got the lot of them. Some great reading ahead. Only problem with these freebies is you get hooked on the authors and end up buying the rest of them. That just happened to me with Tess Gerritson.

Sony Freebies

How does one find what books are being offered free through Sony? Can a person search by cost?

Cheers.

Don
I don't think so, Dr. Dribbles. The only way I could find these free titles was by searching on the individual titles and authors. They aren't shown on their front page or on the pages of "specials" or "bundles". And you can't search on price. If you search on "Free" you get books with that in the title or description. However, you can go to a category (e.g., Fiction and Literature) and click on the sort by price button (either high to low or vice versa) and find them that way. Basically, Sony has some more work to do with their new site format.

You just pick a category, select price (low-high) and buy the ones that cost $0.
