Today's BOTD isn't free. If you want it, you will have to buy it.

Hi in here! Sorry to raise the issue again but this time, the BOTD is free,. In fact, it has been free for the past 3days (Can I be rude, once in a blue year, Feral) and when I logon to amazon, I can't find a provision to download. I do hope something can be done about this. Thank you

You need to click the buy button, even though it's free, but make sure the price is $0.00.

Hi gali, I tried following your instruction but was told that it didn't apply to my country (Nigeria). So I wouldn't be able to download any free books. I guess I'll just wait until they make BOTM, up for reviews. Thanks a lot!

@"Vickie Noel" I'm sorry for the trouble. I will work on a solution. How do you usually buy and read ebooks in Nigeria?

Have you tried the solution in the following topic: Books from .com version of Amazon for non-.com Amazon users?

Hi Scott, I tried @Maggie Stancu's suggestion but there was no provision to choose other Amazon sites. Over here in Nigeria , we use Ankara press, okada books.. Some also use wattpad. Just like the others, you load your cart with books, proceed to checkout and pay with a debit card.

Hello.
Am I being stupid? I cannot seem to download the botd. It just says it's unavailable, i can't see any download or purchase options?

I feel like I'm being really thick but I just don't see how to get it.

Thank you in advance!

It looks find to me. What Amazon are you using?

Hi again. So I won the giveaway on the 26th of August and I'm required to forward my Amazon receipt proving that I downloaded the free book 'The Tissue Trail Conspiracy' on or before the said day. However, due to an issue I raised earlier in this forum, that being that Amazon doesn't work in my country, I am unable to produce the requested receipt.Can anything be done about this or have I lost my prize?
Thanks.

Yesterday I downloaded the book Cat Detectives In The Korean Peninsula only to discover that the lines of text sometimes merge into one another intermittently throughout, making the book unreadable. I deleted the download and downloaded again, but I had the same issue. Any fixes?

My copy is fine. Maybe you need to download from another device.
