Diesel eBooks announced last week that it is celebrating the addition of Mobipocket ebooks to its inventory by permanently offering over 750 Mobipocket titles for download at no charge. The Mobipocket ebooks add to Diesel's existing Adobe, Microsoft and Palm/eReader formats and brings the current inventory to over 200,000.
"We're especially attracted to Mobipocket's useability
with eBook customers and its flexibility in downloading to
handhelds like Palm, PocketPC and smartphone", states Diesel
eBooks founder and President, L. Scott Redford. 2007 was a great
year for us, especially in the romance category, and Mobipocket
is just one part of our overall plan for continued growth.
The Diesel Mobipocket Gratis Collection includes Sense
and Sensibility, Peter Pan, David Copperfield and other classic
titles that are traditionally hard to find in Mobipocket.
Diesel eBooks has set up a 15% off coupon for TreoCentral visitors that expires on 3/20/08. To receive the discount, you should use the code visorbreath62344 at checkout.
If you don't have the Mobipocket reader, you can download it here for Palm OS and here for WM/PPC.
I love to read ebooks on my Treo so I believe I'll head on over there and check out Diesel eBooks and see what all they have. I'm going to check out those 750 Free Mobipocket ebooks first of course. ;-)
Update: One of our readers wrote in and asked about where to find the free ebooks. Here is the link. I found it by going to the bottom of the page under the "About" section. After clicking on that, you go to a page that has "Download Free eBooks" near the top. Under the word "Mobipocket", you can click on your choice of browsing by Title, Author, or Subject. To view these free ebooks, you must have Mobipocket Reader installed.
