Five Free eBooks This Weekend

Do you have a BlackBerry, Android, iPad or iPhone?

Then get out of here, you're not a frugalista.

Just kidding. But you can get five free e-books for your device from Borders this weekend -- in fact they should be available for download already here. Oh, and you could also read them on your computer if you want.

The titles:

Dean Koontz's "Frankenstein: Prodigal Son,"

"One Shot" by Lee Child

"The Alchemyst" by Michael Scott

Julia Child's "Kitchen Wisdom"

"Master your Metabolism" by Jillian Michaels

You can also download chapter 6 of Danielle Steele's upcoming novel "Legacy," which hits shelves Sept. 28. 
 
First you need to download their eReader application -- also free -- for your device or computer. If you already have the app, just search for these titles in the Borders e-book store.

Also, keep in mind that there are generally lots of free classic books available for ebook readers. For example I have reread a couple of my favorite Jane Austen novels since I got my Kindle. (And I must say, they get better every time -- except for that way she has of breaking out of the story at the end just when it's time for the satisfying romantic climax, and wrapping it all up in her own voice as if she called you to let you know how it turned out. Jane, cut it out with the premature narrative withdrawal, would you?)

Anyone have any luck getting the freebies? Downloaded the app to my laptop, but can't get the store to process the "sale" of the free ebooks, even after entering credit card info. Wondering if Borders is being deluged; their online Contact Us section is "temporarily unavailable."

I am having the same problem, downloaded the app to my laptop, tried to download two different books and received a message for both that the order could not be processed.
