    Unfortunately despite all the hype, this does not work and you will not get any free Google books returned in a search.

  • kathryn bonello

  • Melissa

    Yes they are LYING. You can go to google books and search and even find your books, just when you think YAY i can read my book and not pay 10$, NOPE its just the cover and what you find on the back of the book. They are lying to get you to use their program, dont do it.

  • Chrystal

    You have to search for the free books through the Sony Reader Library that you download to your computer with your Reader. You go the the store & the icon should be on the main page towards the bottom on the right. There are a lot of classics, haven’t found anything modern yet.

  • Melynda

    If you go through Sonys ebook store, go to Categories and then eBook Store Classics, but they are a $1.99. But if you go to other sites they are available to for free. But they are classics, books whose copyrights have expired. I got several from (i.e. Jane Austen’s books, Dracula, Wuthering Heights). You just have to import them from your computer to the Reader Library. I’ve synced mine and have not had any problems so far.

  • Willa

    Thanks Chrystal. These books are indeed 100% free – not $1.99. You MUST use the google search box at the bottom right of the home page to access the free books.

  • Shelly

    If you go to your Reader Library that goes with your reader and click on Bargain-Priced they have free books. You can also sometimes go to the diiferant catagories from the home page and click on sort by price and it will give you a lot of free books. I have downloaded 335 free books from the site.

  • Shirley Hansen

    I could read a 350 page book while I go through a;; this looking for free books for my Sony Reader! omly accepts orders for Kindle ebooks…wouldnt you know!

    Oh well, next I’ll go to the public library and try getting books from there onto my Sony Reader!
    Bye for now!

  • Susan

    You can download books for free at the library. You just have to have a library card and find your local library online. The books delete themselves when the book is due.

  • Mrs. M Underwood

    I thought that, in this day and age I would be able to download free books easily to the sony reader but, hey, no can do. Have spent ages trying to get the one thing I was promised when I bought the wretched thing. Am fed up and would like my money back but, as it’s regestered ,I can’t Blooming thing!

    You HAVE to click on the google books link on the sony e reader store to find the free google books. I’ve downloaded lots and lots of them and they ARE free.

  • Cynthia

    I was told by a friend, that in order to access sites with free ebooks, you need a micro memory sim card and a card reader for the Sony ereader.More money of course.

  • Lin Tomlinson

    I looked forward to using my reader. However now I would like to throw it at the wall. It’s difficult to navigate and the free books are invisible only those you pay for can be seen. Told to download from the reader to my comp! What is the point I may as well join the local library. Its rubbish and not what you are told to expect I wish I had been given the kindle fire for xmas like my daughter hers is so easy!
