"...just concluded a deal with Overdrive, a primary provider of ebooks to libraries, so our entire catalog will be available easily to libraries."

Also the Miller "history of SF" classics.
735 books isn't quite everything from Baen but it's a good start.

Check out your library though. Only because Baen offers them doesn't mean your library already paid for them. My own library has only 39 books from Baen currently.

Just curious, how do you find the Baen books? I can't find anywhere to search for publisher. I'm wondering if my library has any of these yet.

I used the Libby app. I searched for a book I knew was from Baen, and if you look at the details it has the publisher, click on that and all books from that publisher's imprint pop up. (I used 1632 from Eric Flint as start). Libby doesn't allow searching publishers directly that I know about.

Curiously enough, 1632 is only availlable through Libby or Kindle. But on Amazon it is on permafree to buy. And the copy my library has is lend out. (???)

Okay. So I'll have to find a popular Baen title (or two) and work from there. It's possible my library is not going to get any -- they don't seem to be too much into SF.

I believe you can search for "Baen", but the results are not going to be all and only Baen books.

Permanent free. As in the cost is $0.00.

No concerns about being a skin Flint? Or not supporting the art?
