The Suvudu Free Library really opened my eyes to a few authors I would not have picked up in the past and am already really enjoying their works. I wrote a similiar post today about Suvudo and Random House since it is officially "Read an E-Book Week" March 8th-14th! Save a tree, get that blood off of your hands (ok its sap) and read an E-Book! Great post, thanks!
