The Book Depository is to give away more than 11,000 book titles for free download so it can give its customers an opportunity to “try ebooks all at no risk and free of charge”. The move will lead the way for the launch of a full-fledged e-book store.

Kieron Smith, managing director, said that The Book Depository would be launching its own e-book store over the next couple of months. He added that development was “already underway”, but the free e-books would allow readers to “experiment”.

“There are no hoops to go through, you don’t have to give your details, you can just have a bit of a play,” said Smith. “E-books are much talked about at the moment but difficult for people to try, this gives people a chance to experiment, read something new and try ebooks all at no risk and free of charge.”

The books, which include Robinson Crusoe through to forgotten titles such as British Goblins, are available to download as PDFs, and are published by The Book Depository’s own imprint Dodo Press. which reissues up to 200 classic titles every week.

The e-books can be accessed from today (18th November) from

    Awful service…have ordered 4 books, after two whole weeks, only two have arrived…cheap, yes, and you get what you pay for…

    No service and still no books…

    Could have gone waterstones and paid a bit more and got what I actually wanted, when I wanted them…

    Back to amazon…
