Toshiba Bookplace to launch tomorrow – get your $80 in free ebooks

Toshiba Bookplace to launch tomorrow - get your $80 in free ebooks  eBookstore I just got an email from Toshiba reminding me that the Toshiba Bookplace website will be open tomorrow. As part of the launch Toshiba will be giving away 4 ebooks:

  • History’s Greatest Lies: The Startling Truths Behind World Events our History Books Got Wrong – William Weir (Fair Winds Press)
  • I Know an Old Teacher – Anne Bowen and Stephen Gammell (Lerner Publishing Group)
  • Monster Boy’s Soccer Game, by Carl Emerson and Lon Levin Carl Emerson and Lon Levin (Magic Wagon)
  • Knack Grilling Basics – Linda Johnson Larsen (Knack, an imprint of Globe Pequot Press)

The promotion will run for the next couple weeks, so there's no reason to hurry.

As much as I want the DRM on this ebook format to die, I think you should get the ebooks. This ebookstore is based on Blio, and the Blio ebook format appears to have a number of interesting tricks that other formats lack. I've only seen demos at conferences (it's not the same as having it on my computer), so I don't know for sure. But I'm intrigued by the possibilities.

  1. Umm, why did Toshiba enter the eBook market?

  2. I’m not sure about this software. I’ve tried using it, but every time I try to download a book, it says that the title is not supported by Google. How do you search for free books if every one you choose say it’s not supported? I don’t get it.

  3. i don’t understand how the search for free downloads works

  4. I also have this on my toshiba laptop. I cannot figure out how to download the three books for free!

  5. how can I download the three free books? and how can I download free books when it only says that the title is not supported by Google. 🙁 help please 🙁

  6. how to I get free e books to open?
