Okay, I admit, I LOVE free stuff!  Anyone who saw me in action at BEA or ALA knows this to be true.  So imagine how happy I was when I was tooling around on iTunes yesterday, not even looking for freebies when I came across a free download of one of my all time favorite books, THE ALCHEMIST by Paul Coelho-- as read by Jeremy Irons!  To get yours, just visit the iTunes store and click on audiobooks-- but hurry, the offer ends July 15!

And then today, I came across THIS

For those of you not wanting to click, it's a free download of Sherrilyn Kenyon's SEIZE THE NIGHT, in celebration of her upcoming release, ACHERON, the latest in her dark-hunter series. It's a new marketing tool a lot of publisher's are employing-- giving away free downloads of an earlier book (for a limited time) to gain interest in a new one-- and I think it's a great idea!

And if you're interested in winning an entire grab bag of free books, then just click HERE.

Oh, and if you're looking to visit a cafe where you can hang out for free for as long as you like, then head on over to the Teen Fiction Cafe. We're talking about friendships this week, and we're delighted that two new friends have joined us: the amazing Sara Zarr and Stephanie Kuehnert, so please stop by and say hi!

And of course, for free entertainment this weekend, stop by ROCK 'N' READ for a rockin' good time.  All of the details are HERE!

Have a good day everyone!

Oooooooo I LOVE freebies too.... weird isn't it, it's not like I can't afford to buy them but I get all excited when things are up for grabs, hahahaha

Hey Sara- I know, there's just something about a "limited time" offer!

Hey--I see one very fabulous, very wonderful book in that grab bag! (I'm sure the others are too, but in my honest opinion, one shines just a leeeeetle big brighter than the rest.) :)
