Free E-Books: 25.09.21

This is a weekly post that I am going to post a bit about the books I have sourced for free.

I usually find out about these E-Books through social media and through emails I receive from Hello Books.

I have been a bit nervous about this post as I’m not sure how people feel about getting E-Books for free, but in my eyes I could find a new author I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of and I will be posting reviews for them all.

In this weekly post, I would like to mention the books I have found and downloaded, so that others may have a chance to be introduced to new authors and the books are promoted before I get a around to reading them.

Hello Books – Amazon:

These books were sourced through emails I received by Hello Books and were purchased for free on Amazon. There are a number of genres to choose through this email service, and I pick the ones which sound like the type of books I would like to read. Please note these were free at the time of this posting on 25.09.21 an in the UK region.
