Monday, July 14, 2014 (Bastille Day) is the first digital book day, according to DigitalBookDay.com. It is intended to be a “day to celebrate readers, stories, and the authors who create them.” The site is offering links to over 400 free books on hosted various sites. There is a wide range of genres represented: historical, romance, science-fiction, fantasy, mystery, non-fiction, thrillers, and young adult. Represented are books from authors from around the world, including C.J. Lyons, Bob Mayer, Linda Welch and many, many more.
PLEASE NOTE: The book links will not be live until July 14, 2014. Without being able to click through, it was not clear to me what format the free books are being offered in (mobi, epub or PDF).
There is also a link on the site to sign up to be notified of future free digital book events.
Update: The Digital Book Day site seems to be down. I am getting a database connection error.
Update 2: Evidently, the server crashed. There is a post here on Google plus where authors have been invited to post links to their free books. Authors are welcome to post links to their free books below in the comments.
digital book day is not working what is up
Donald, I don’t know. I am not connected with the site; I was just reporting the event. If I hear any news, I will post an update for everyone.There seems to have been a lot of interest in the site.
will we be given another day to do it
Still can”t access the site. Free ebook day appears to be a bust.
Evidently, there has been a server crash. I have updated the post to reflect the new information.
You can download my fantasy/YA title THE BETWEEN here: http://www.ljcohen.net/digitalbookday.html
I’ll leave the link live for an extra day, because of the server problems.
I’m sorry, Don, I don’t understand your comment. The link to my individual book should still be working. Unfortunately, I don’t have any control over the digital book day master site.
LJ, I removed the post by “Don.” Criticizing authors for things outside their control is unacceptable behavior here.
I’m hosting my download at http://t.co/IYFjypZPsS for one more day. Get epic fantasy STORMSHADOW free!

The Digital Book Day site is extending the free book portal for another day. See new post. 🙂
I have removed several comments complaining about authors not offering their books free for another day. The tone was critical, negative and unproductive. I am sure the site crashing yesterday was devastating for everyone involved. Promotions are planned in advance and all authors may not be able to extend free promotions.
