Before they launched Tor.com there was a large free ebook give-away.
Yes, for quite a while. I discovered several authors who are now favorite must-buys.

I discovered Kage Baker that way. Great books. Unfortunately she passed away shortly thereafter

Eos (Harper Collins) did something similar a while back. I discovered Adam-Troy Castro when they gave away Emissaries From the Dead. Hopefully Tor follows suit with quality titles for a while.

I finally got the email newsletter from Tor with this as the lead story. Nice that they only give their prior subscribers only two or three days warning.

Sweet! Thank you. The Three Body Problem is an excellent book and is a runner-up for the book club, so we might choose it as next January's selection. Grab it now just in case.

Thanks! I signed up as well, though I'm not interested in the first book so I don't feel like I missed the opportunity.

Pity I can't use that offer.

I've read "The Wandering Earth" by Cixin Liu. I liked that short story.

It's one of the few free e-books I actually read as soon as I got it (because it was only 25 pages according to my personal count, so why not)?

Maybe I should look into more works of this author.

Not having an internet connection in the US is not a problem, there are free and simple ways around it.

I know, but technically speaking, it's either not legal, or at least not appropriate.

FYI, in the USA, there are many areas where government, business, or other entities offer free wi-fi for public use, and therefore, where using it is both legal and appropriate.

OT: For the sake of privacy and data security, it's recommended that people who use public wi-fi also use a VPN.
