Web Treasure: Book Giveaways

Do you like free books?

Real paper books, not Kindle ebooks priced at $0.00…

Here at ScienceThrillers, I myself run the occasional book giveaway / raffle. But at any given time, there are so many books being given away online. How to find them? ScienceThrillers wants to help. I’m starting my own page linking to current book giveaways (you’ll see it on the menu tabs above).  Because I just launched this service, there may not be much there yet.

{If you ever run a book giveaway, list it here. If you’re an author, ask me and I’ll run the raffle for you!}

In the meantime, use this Top Ten list to find books you want–or even better, to discover new authors–for FREE. Each of these sites links to multiple book giveaways. Visit and enter to win! (Requirements to enter will vary from site to site, of course.)
