Free e-Stocking Stuffer Tips

As the holiday crunch closes in on us, I thought I'd share some of my favorite freebies, in case you're in need of another stocking stuffer, or just want to get a little something for yourself. Free e-books are all over the internet, but if you're looking for some quality free e-books, I think these suggestions stand out above the crowd. I've read the books below and found each of them valuable:

And, of course, what would a blog about free e-book be without a little self-promotion? For the epic fantasy adventure lover, Crimson & Cream is free on Smashwords through New Year's Eve with this coupon code: HB78A. I can honestly say, I've read this book over 15 times, and it gets better every time.
