The Huffington Post labeled it “the biggest news in publishing since the Kindle.” Publishers Weekly last week reported:

“Thomas Nelson announced today the launch of NelsonFree, a program that allows readers to receive content in multiple formats—physical book, audiobook and e-book—without making multiple purchases. With NelsonFree, the price of the hardcover book includes both the audio download and the e-book…

Once readers purchase a book with the NelsonFree logo, they are directed to a Web site where they register and answer a security question. They then can download an audio MP3 file and several types of e-book files, including EPub, MobiPocket and PDF

Nelson president and CEO Michael S. Hyatt said, ‘I believe that the industry is shifting and we, as publishers, need to explore new methods of getting our content into the hands of customersNelsonFree will give readers a new level of value and flexibility. It will enhance their literary experience and allow greater employment of the content without breaking the bank.'”
