Harlequin Offers 16 Free E-Books on Stanza

boxshot.jpgAs Valentine’s Day nears, lovers have a new compendium of romantic literature at their fingertips–Harlequin just released 16 free novels for Stanza, the iPhone and iPod Touch digital book reader.

The giveaway will help the publisher meet its 60th anniversary goal of giving a romance novel to every woman in the country. The 16 titles are a drop in ocean of books for the romance company–they publish 1,200 authors and 120 titles every month.

Most recently, GalleyCat reported that Lexcycle’s Stanza reader had been downloaded one million times in 2008. Here’s a quote from Neelan Choksi, COO of Lexcycle: “Some of most voracious readers on Stanza are women, and we are proud to team up with Harlequin … We anticipate that there are a lot of iPhones and iPod Touch’s that will be purchased as Valentine’s Day gifts this year.”
