Free Ebooks from Bethlehem Books

I've heard a great deal about Bethlehem Books from other bloggers, but I've never read any of their publications yet. It looks like they have a lot of good Christian literature, and I've often wanted to try out one of their books. Well, I recently came across a wonderful surprise: free Bethlehem Books!!

Every month, they offer a free ebook download from their website. I've already downloaded February's book: Alfred of Wessex. If you think you may be interested, you should go download it because this particular ebook will only be free until February 29th. Note: You will have to create an account with Bethlehem Books if you don't have one already. You should create an account first, before trying to download.

Of the available ebooks that Bethlehem Books has for purchase, some are called eVersions and some are eStacks. The difference is: eVersions are ebook versions of the same books they publish. eStacks are ones that the company does not publish as books, and are only released in digital format.

So! I'm excited to collect a few of these free monthly ebooks for myself. I'm looking forward to March's and April's new freebies. If you want to find out what the freebie is for each month, just visit Bethlehem Books on their Twitter and Facebook pages (even if you don't have an account on these sites, you can still read the news).

What books did you read in the month of January? I read a few good ones that kept me busy:

The Hiding Place The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey Elsie at Home

My favorite from last month is definitely The Hiding Place. {review coming soon!}
