The Number is 423

It has been a busy month and a busy quarter between my personal life, work, and the loads of free books I’ve told you about in the blog.

For those of you who don’t know, I am an accountant and this is predictably my busiest time of the year.  With the “normal” routine of being a husband and dad, plus the 101 things each of us do per day, I’m ready for a vacation!

What’s the purpose of this post?  It’s the enormous amount of free books over this past quarter – it’s awesome!  Some of them are still free, some of them are not – if you would like to check out the posts with the links to each in case you missed some of them, just point your web browser to and click away.

How many books, you might ask?  Well, March was Read an eBook Week which spawned a lot of posts, and this month alone I’ve told you about 123 free books.  However, for the quarter I sent posts out about 423 books (no wonder I’m tired) in the following categories:
