Free Books

Chasing Unicorns is opening a bookstore, where you can buy books for free. For the cost of just one click of a mouse, you can open up any book in my Free Bookstore, and start reading at your leisure.

You can even download these books (though it may cost a few more mouse clicks), and hoard them on your own computer, smartphone, tablet, ouija board, or whatever reading device you use. They’re in PDF format, so they should work on most devices.

You can also give them away, as they have a Creative Commons license that allows unlimited distribution by anyone, as long as authorship is blamed on me, Tippy Gnu. Hell, you can even sell them if you wish. Good luck with that.

My free books come with a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied. How can you beat such a deal?

There are currently just two books for sale, but I anticipate more will be added over time. I’m dredging up the bones of my long-abandoned oeuvre of works that have been taken out of print. I’m revising them, tagging them with a Creative Commons license, and then selling them for free to the general public.

I took these books out of print because I got tired of all the paperwork required, paying taxes on the piddly royalties. I know I won’t get rich, but by giving them away, maybe I can get famous. And without any tax consequences.

If you want to buy one of my free books, just click on the Free Bookstore menu item, at the top of this blog.

You may already be familiar with one of the books. I’ve been selling free copies of Unikonics on this blog since the summer of 2018. And since that time, I’ve also offered it for free download at obooko.com. According to my stats at obooko.com, Unikonics has been downloaded 500 times, and has been rated 4 out of 5 stars by 17 people who actually read it. I have no idea how much it’s been downloaded from this blog, but I’m guessing about one or two million times. Give or take one or two million.

When Unikonics was selling for real money (99 cents), I only sold one copy. And so you see, I just had to find the right price, in order to move this product. A lesson learned in marketing.

Pumping Up Piglipple also sold only one copy. So I think it makes a great new addition to my Free Bookstore. And since yesterday, it’s been offered for free at obooko.com.

I attribute the poor sales of Pumping Up Piglipple to its shitty book cover. I’ve never been good at cover design, and this is probably the shittiest of all my artistic endeavors. But as they say, never judge a book by its shitty cover.

I think you’ll enjoy Pumping Up Piglipple as much as you’ve enjoyed Unikonics. Even if you’ve never read Unikonics. Both books are short, so in the unlikely event that you find yourself in agony reading them, be assured that your torture won’t last long.

I hope you’ll visit my Free Bookstore, even if it’s just to get out of the rain. And if you keep coming back, as it expands its offerings, I’m sure that will encourage me to write more and more drivel, until my store looks like a fucking Barnes & Noble.

To enter my bookstore, just follow this link, or some of the other links cleverly implanted in this post. Or click the Free Bookstore link at the top of this blog.

Bienvenidos! Welcome! Come on in!

  1. Thought I would let you know that I took advantage of your free bookstore and read one of your books. 🙂 Which one do you think it was? See how good your mind reading skills are, or just ask your Unicorn! Unicorns are smart!
    I was laughing through it and shaking my head, and it did keep my interest.

      • Aha! So now whenever you or Colin say that you aren’t mind readers I will just say to ask your Unicorn! He is right!
        Nope didn’t injure my neck, it’s very used to being shaken!
        Didn’t know your book included a famous character, Spongebob! Impressive.
        Enjoyed the Prsctical joke theory, but the poor cat! Dewey would not be Happy!
        And you were pretty on target with the “enemies”.
        But your obsession with fire does scare me a little! 😃

        • Thanks for all your kind feedback. I promise not to pull any practical jokes on Dewey. I must admit that fire looks very pretty, with all those colorful flames. But don’t worry, my wife keeps the matches in a high place, out of my reach.

  2. You are welcome for the feedback. Glad that your wife watches out for you! There are ways to get to high places though, I am quite the expert at it.
    Dewey appreciates your kindness, he may save you a mouse now for a treat. 🙂
    I remembered one of the quotes that I really liked, “How your mind perceives the things you experience determines how much life you are able to experience.” The mind really is a powerful thing.

    • Wow, so now I know what it’s like to have a quote stolen from me. That’s karma, I guess.

      Yes, the mind is very powerful, and not to be underestimated. It’s like spicy food the day after you’ve eaten it. You gotta be careful, or you’ll be feeling the heat for a long time.
