Gems amongst free e-books from Barnes and Noble

If you are an owner of the Nook by Barnes and Noble, you may want to take advantage of their special offer going on through January 17. Barnes and Noble is offering several titles from Kaplan Publishing for free! Go here to check out the books.



Most of the books seem academic in nature; there are, after all, nearly 3 pages of AP, SAT, and ACT test prep books. But, the special is offering a handful of gems too. Here are a few titles that piqued my interest and made it into my e-book library:

  • Before Roe V. Wade: Voices that Shaped the Abortion Debate Before the Supreme Court Ruling by Linda Greenhouse and Reva Siegal

  • History in Blue: 160 Years of Women Police, Sheriffs, Detectives, and State Troopers by Allan T. Duffin

  • Angel of Death Row by Andrea D. Lyon

  • Reaching the Bar: Women in All Stages of their Law Career by Robin Sax

  • Stumbling Along the Beat: A Policewoman's Uncensored Story from the World of Law Enforcement by Stacie Dittrich

  • The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs. Seacole in Many Lands by Mary Seacole and Harriet Washington
