Google Play - Free eBooks

Soumyadip, author of the popular blog Cutting the Chai, has discovered at least 40 popular ebooks that are currently available for free at the Google Play Store. You can download and read the Google Play ebooks on your Android or iOS devices or even your web browser.

HarperCollins is the publisher of all these books in India,  as pointed out by Diptakirti Chaudhuri and thus am not sure if the offer would be valid in other countries. And since there’s no official word on how long this promotion will last, you should grab your favorites fast.
