Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you guys been around?

We launched on January 8th, 2013.

Some of these books aren't actually free! What gives?

We update our database once a day. But because prices are updated throughout the day, you might find some books in our lists that were free when we checked, but are no longer so. We're working on ways to handle such occurrences as well as possible. But always make sure to check the final price before purchasing!

Are you expanding to other countries and websites?

We currently offer our service for Barnes & Nobles, Amazon US/UK, and Project Gutenberg, but plan on expanding further. If there's a shop that you're waiting for, please let us know.

Sometimes, books appear as "unavailable for download". What's that about?

This happens occasionally for users who aren't physically in the country they're purchasing an ebook from. For example, someone with a Canadian or Dutch mailing address trying to complete a download from the USA. The reason has to do with different copyright issues across borders, and there's not much we can do about it. Our listings display the ebooks available in the country indicated.

I'm an author with a free book. How can I get it listed on your site?

Get in touch with us! We're happy to feature free ebooks in a promotional area at the top of the home page.
