Attention Amazon account holders, book lovers, rabbit enthusiasts, and seekers of great stories: Richard Adams’ phenomenal book Watership Down is on Amazon (no news there) with a free sample of the book (fair enough, most Amazon books offer this service, a twenty-page-long free sample etc) but also — and here’s the good bit — there’s a glitch in the system and the entire book can be read for free.
That’s right, for free!
As a writer I shouldn’t be doing this. Sharing ways to cheat a writer out of his due royalties is not kosher, but as a lover of stories I think it’s better that people jump in on it and get turned on to a modern classic, and screw the lost revenue. I don’t think Adams will lose any sleep over it, and if he does, he can contact Amazon himself and have them fix the glitch.
In the meantime, enjoy a masterpiece for free.
Just click on the link below, then click on the book cover image on the lefthand side where it says Look Inside, and the entire book is at your disposal.
From the bays of Pearl Coast,
Fish a ton of oysters, strike a shiny pearl.
PS – the glitch applies only to the Print Book sample (see link above), not the Kindle Book, and only if you have an account with Amazon and are logged in.
