[Mobiles] Free, eBooks, free

If you use a PDA to read-ebooks, here's a freebie: eReader will offer a free eBook daily in July.

This is nothing new: Baen Books found that by making eBooks freely available, the paperback and hardback sales of those same books increased. Here's Eric Flint, one of the authors who gave away his own eBooks, describing the methodology he used to study this, and his conclusions as to why free eBooks boosted his sales.

Cory Doctorow also offers his novels for free download under the Creative Commons license at his website, simultaneously with their publication in dead-tree form.
