1250 books for $20.

https://www.pulsetv.com/prodinfo.asp...2&sid=81229486 This site sells a Library of eBooks on a 8 GB USB card. The card itself is almost worth the price. Books are all in 3 formats, Kindle, ePUB, and PDF. I have bought other items from this site before.

I just noticed that https://www.heartlandamerica.com/e-g...PER+Cyber+Sale! Heartland also has this on sale. Their price is $25 but includes free shipping making it only slightly more that PulseTV. They also have some audio books included but PulseTV may have them also. I am not sure.

So, let me see if I understand this. 250 public domain classics and 1000 Indies of unknown quality. On an 8gb USB key of unknown make, worth about 4€. For 25$ including postage. So if you actually read eight of the non pd works you have read about eight dollars worth (maybe) and have a four dollar USB key, which together cost you 25$.
I think I'll continue getting my pd from Gutenberg. As for the Indies, I suppose if you find something you really like it's worth it, but I'm sure they are available on an individual basis to download.
Thanks for posting, but I think I'll pass on this.
BTW, how do they justify 5$ to post it? Must weigh about 6 grams.

They call is shipping and handling. I should have said shipping. The first one is cheaper with about $4 for shipping. The prices for the base product are not the same.

You can get a 16gb drive from Sandisk or Kingston for $5-$8 on Amazon.

Why pay for public domain classics, or unknown Indie titles?

This seems to be targeted at low-information buyers, to be honest.


EDITED to add: Not saying it's bad or anything, just saying it the way I see it.

The author/title list is here: https://www.egolibrary.com/books

I scanned the SFF and only spotted 2 names I knew - Terah Edun (YA) and Lindsey Buroker - The Emperor's Edge. (I wasn't particularly impressed by the first in that series and didn't continue.) I have a Terah Edun on my TBR pile so can't comment.

Saladin Ahmed's Throne of the Crescent Moon is included (oddly in the Fiction category - it's actually Fantasy). That's pretty good.

3 books out of around 600 in fiction - not a good hit rate. The SFF PD section is better!

Throne of the Crescent Moon is neither PD, nor indie. It was published by DAW. Are we certain the rights holders to all of these books are on board with this?

You know, I was kind of thinking that myself.

I do know Throne of the Crescent Moon has a free sampler, and I think the first in The Emperor's Edge series is a freebie. It would perhaps be instructive to poke around Amazon or Smashwords to see how many of the titles are available there.

The type of website these deals are on, gives me a caveat emptor feeling. Buyer beware. I mean, I guess what I'm saying is, the deals sound better in the "Big print" than they are once you look at the "fine print". But isn't that life? The big print giveth and the fine print taketh away.


Although regarding the price of a 16 GB flash drive on Amazon given issues I've heard related to Amazon's fulfillment and 3rd party sellers related to counterfeiting and that counterfeit flash memory is a real thing and would cause actual issues in some cases, I'm not sure I'd go with them for flash memory. But I'm not attacking the point made.

Although this flash drive has a MicroUSB connector as well, if you care.
