That’s a heck of a lot of ebooks, especially when you consider how many ebooks are published in this country every year. If you’re looking for something new to read, check out the free books below instead of pirating something else. Help an author out!
Wow. That’s a lot of money. But it’s not just publishers who are hurt by piracy, it’s authors. When a book is pirated, authors don’t see any royalties from it. The big names we all know, the J.K. Rowlings and the Stephen Kings and the Tom Clancys (or their estates, in Tom Clancy‘s case), are few and far between in reality. Many authors struggle to pay the bills with their writing, and most of us have day jobs we’d love to ditch but can’t afford to. For us, piracy can be devastating.
And when you’re done, check out today’s free book…

Speaking of free books, today’s free book is…
Do you fall in this camp? I know I do. My books, though, were free on Amazon or Smashwords when I downloaded them. Whatever you might think of Amazon and their business practices, at least they don’t fill your device’s OS with crap.
That’s a pretty startling statistic, isn’t it?
The purpose of the Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy blog tour is pretty self-explanatory, really. We’re a group of like-minded individuals working to raise awareness of book piracy and its effects, and we’re giving away a load of free books – and a $20 Amazon gift card – in the process!
