However, I want to know, as a reader, how do you feel about them?
Do you like, or maybe even love, free ebooks? Do you HATE them? Why?
Some argue that free ebooks make ebooks that cost money, worth less. Some argue that free ebooks make ebooks that cost money, worth more.
I know, as authors, we obviously don't make any money on a book that we give away 10,000 copies of. Not on that particular book, we don't, anyway. However, if it helps to promote our name, our brand, our work, then it's "cheap" advertising.
But again, what about you, the reader? How do you feel about an author that gives away some of their work? How do you feel about the particular book that they give away?
Do you value that work or that author? Or do you view it as a disposable resource?
And, if you don't like free ebooks...how do you feel about sites like Pixel of Ink and Ereader News Today (ENT) which help an author reach a new audience via free ebooks?
