FreeBookDude.com will be posting free Barnes and Noble Nook books every hour starting Monday, May 7. This is great news for readers and authors alike.
When Amazon started the Kindle Select program, authors pulled thousands of books from the Barnes and Noble catalog. That by no means there are no free books available for the Nook, as well as new ones popping up all the time. I actually have a free book coming out on the Nook soon that isn't free on Amazon's Kindle. So if you are an author with a free book on the Barnes and Noble Nook, then please use the Book Submission form and let me know. It's free to post.
If you are a Nook reader, make sure you grab the new Nook RSS feed to be ready for all the fun as soon as it starts. If you know of any good Nook books that are free, please let me know. With so many to choose from, it is always great to get a diverse selection.
While we are talking about new, what do you guys think of the new site? The layout is basically the same; but since reading is so fun and happy, I wanted to make sure FreeBookDude.com conveyed that same happiness you feel when you begin a new book. The original design looked cool, but was too dark and dreary for my tastes. Let me know what you guys think in the comment section below.
Finally, I want to really stress something to everybody that reads this post. I talk about Sharing the Free a lot, and that is not just for my benefit. Many of the authors posted on FreeBookDude.com are indie writers with next to no money for advertising. In this day of social media and link sharing, one of the best ways to thank a writer is by sharing their books and links with your friends. Spreading the word with people the authors would not normally be able to reach is a greater help than most readers know.
Think about the times you saw a post from your friend that you actually liked. It felt good, didn't it? Why not give others that feeling and Share the Free online? It's easy and quick. All you have to do is click one of the icons below each post on FreeBookDude.com (or any other website featuring a book or author you really enjoy) and let people know. If you are on Twitter, use the hashtag #ShareTheFree and lets make it a worldwide trend.
