Media Bistro reports that Random House is giving away free PDF downloads of Charles Bock's Beautiful Children here. I suspsect this is a move on the company's part to see if reader's will take to a new book medium: the online download. (A hell of a lot cheaper than firing up the old printing press, right?) Anyway, not ever being one to pass up a free book, I downloaded my copy without blinking. Will I read it? Maybe. Probably.(Possibly because the Brockster is one dangerous-looking dude.)
I'll let you know.
