Blog reader Sandy sent this one to me, and it sounds like something neat to share with the rest of you – if you find out about a free eBook in the Kindle format that is not offered for free on the Amazon website, why not shoot me an email? My email address is kindle at gagler dot com
Fodor, the travel guide company, is offering the very first travel guide for free in Kindle format. Here is the book’s description from the Fodor website:
Three years before the start of WWII, Eugene Fodor published his first guidebook, 1936–On the Continent–The Entertaining Travel Annual. Fodor’s goal was to create a fun-to-read, annually updated guidebook about Europe that emphasized the people and culture of a country—a radical change from the traditional guidebook approach. Seventy-five years later, On the Continent gives readers a nostalgic glimpse and sentimental grand tour of pre-WWII Europe.
Today, Fodor’s is one of the world’s largest and most trusted brands in travel, covering more than 600 destinations worldwide in guidebooks, on Fodors.com, in ebooks and iPhone apps.
To celebrate our 75th anniversary, Fodor’s invites you to download a free ebook edition of the guide that started it all.
You can pick up your free copy if you click here or type in http://bit.ly/hbgdmg into your computer’s web browser. Please note this link is for the download of the Kindle book, and is not a link to a webpage describing the book. You will need to download it to your computer first, then transfer it to your Kindle. You can click here to read my free guide on how to transfer content to your computer. This is the same guide I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but you get it for free.
