Free: Download Dan Brown’s Bestseller, The DaVinci Code, Until March 24

DaVinciCodeI’ll be the first one to admit it, The DaVinci Code isn’t exactly an easy fit on a site that promises to talk about “the best cultural media” out there. But Dan Brown’s 2003 mystery novel has sold north of 80 million copies and now finds itself translated into 44 languages. And the Louvre figures centrally in the book’s plot. That gives it some cultural cred, no? Okay, maybe not! Anyway, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the book’s publication, Doubleday has decided to give away copies of the bestseller through March 24, making the book available as a free download on multiple ebook platforms: Amazon, Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Google, Sony Reader, and Kobo. According to Galleycat, the download will include “the prologue and first chapter of Inferno, Brown’s upcoming novel.”

    It’s a guilty pleasure as few. But hey, free is free. :) (And it’s not region blocked!)

  • Cyber Killer

    It is region blocked for me – I wanted to get the epub → Google – nope, B&N – requires US credit card, Kobo – not available internationally :-P.

  • Phantom Engineer

    No go in the UK. Anyway, I nearly reached the end of Page 1 in the print version. Albino assassins get me every time…

  • Line Uhlen

    So not fair! I really wanted this, but it doesn’t work on the Norwegian iBookstore. It sucks living in america and still not getting any of the perks.

  • MC Hirsch

    We just happened to be out of the country the week it was offered and couldn’t download. It really stinks to just TEASE us with a Freebie.
