Giving Away Books for Free

from the competition-heating-up dept (Books On Line) today decided to have a special promotion to compete with Amazon and BarnesandNoble who are giving away cheap books: they gave away books for free for two hours today. Of course, it apparently knocked out the server. Sounds similar to when was giving away DVDs for a dollar last year (which explains my DVD collection, despite the fact I have no player).

Re: This Needed to be posted?

Um… yes, been meaning to remind you of that fact as I was skimming through my bookshelf the other day noticing those books were missing… Of course, these are items that don’t necessarily need to be posted on Techdirt, but if it increases the post count, that’s cool with me. 🙂 Just delivered, though? What sort of movers do you have that take that long to deliver?
