Freebie flash! Rosetta brings the Oscar-inspiring backlist!
As usual, I don’t vouch for these books, and they come from companies that are not (to my knowledge) blocking text-to-speech. As promotional titles, they may not be free for long. Note: these books are free in the USA: prices in other countries may vary.
I don’t usually do two Freebie Flashes in a row…I actually try not to do two of the same kind of post in a row, although it does happen. I didn’t want you to miss these, though, in case they are only offered at a short time.
RosettaBooks won against Random House some time back, as I understand it, when Random House tried to assert that they owned the e-book rights to a title even when that wasn’t explicitly stated in the contract.
Well, they have some really significant backlist titles for free right now. I’m guessing this is introductory, so that’s why I’m not waiting to send it.
This book gets listed among the best English-language books (including by Time Magazine), and was the basis for an Academy Award winning movie in 1984.
This book inspired Field of Dreams, and was a hit on its own.
Another novel that became an Oscar-winning movie…was that the theme this time? Prepare for the tone of this one…it’s not a happy story.
Yes, the Dustin Hoffman movie is based on this book.
What’s the movie for this one? Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The feel of the movie is very different from that of the book, though.
When this book originally came out in 1968, it had a huge impact, popularizing astrology in the USA. If you’ve ever jokingly (or seriously) said, “What’s your sign?” this book is probably why.
Not surprisingly, it’s fun whether you believe any of it or not. If it hadn’t been a good read, it wouldn’t have done as well.
There are also separate (not free) editions for each sign. I think that’s a smart way to go…and I think this won’t be free for long.
