Download a Free Copy of Cory Doctorow’s Bestseller, Little Brother

Here’s a good item that came out of yes­ter­day’s book give­away — Ben­jamin L called our atten­tion to the fact that you can down­load a free copy of Lit­tle Broth­er, the new nov­el by Cory Doc­torow, who writes for the pop­u­lar Boing­Bo­ing blog and has con­sis­tent­ly backed the whole idea of “open cul­ture.” Released in late April, the nov­el spent six weeks on the NY Times best­seller list, and, as Ben­jamin notes, the main themes of tech­nol­o­gy and free­dom are very rel­e­vant to the read­ers of our own blog. As you will see, the offi­cial down­loads come in sev­er­al for­mats: Plain text, HTML, and PDF. But, you can also snag copies in oth­er ver­sions that fans have put togeth­er. Take for exam­ple a ver­sion that you can read on an iPhone, or one that you can access via a Sony e‑Reader. You can find all for­mats here, or buy the book in print (which I did) here.

As a last note, I want to thank every­one who par­tic­i­pat­ed in the book give­away. I was real­ly pleased with your con­tri­bu­tions (you have good taste) and wish that I had more books to give away. In the next day, I will con­tact those first ten con­trib­u­tors, and next week I will post all of your pieces of open cul­ture. Many thanks to all. And, any time that you want to rec­om­mend a good piece of media for the ben­e­fit of your fel­low read­ers, don’t hes­i­tate to do so.
