I’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.”
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a weightier read, don’t miss our collection of 375 Free eBooks for the Kindle, iPad and Nook
It’s a guilty pleasure as few. But hey, free is free. :) (And it’s not region blocked!)
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.
No go in the UK. Anyway, I nearly reached the end of Page 1 in the print version. Albino assassins get me every time…
Still costs 22$ for me in Canada!
Edit: on the iBookstore
it’s not free on Amazon.com
This is awesome, I just downloaded it for from on my Kindle! Yup Yup!!!! (I didn’t trust this site because this isn’t familiar to me or recommended by my kindle reading friends.)Anyway, to be safe, I looked up Davinci Code on my kindle, and there is was 0.00!! so I bought (grin) it! Good read!!!!
thanks Dan for some damn good books
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.
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.
