Each month the University of Chicago Press gives away a free eBook. The eBook is usually in PDF or Epub, and it always requires Adobe DE to handle the DRM.
This month’s free eBook is Isolarion: A Different Oxford Journey, by James Attlee. If you haven’t already done so already, you’ll need to provide your email address to the UofC Press before you can download the free eBook. You can sign up here.
“The fish-out-of water travelogue is a staple of the bookstore, but Attlee…has set himself a different task: to be the fish, and to give a detailed description of the properties of the water.… Attlee’s reading is deep and wide and engagingly circuitous, and this book frequently provides the delights of discovery that make any adventure worth undertaking.”—Rebecca Mead, Bookforum
The UofC Press is also offering Attlee’s new book, Nocturne: A Journey in Search of Moonlight at 30% off list price of the cloth or e-book edition. You can get the discount by using the promo code ATTLEE30 during checkout.
