Simon & Schuster Releases Free “Uglies” E-Book

uglies23.jpgTo promote the upcoming release of Scott Westerfeld‘s new book, “Leviathan,” Simon & Schuster is offering a free PDF version of his bestselling novel, “Uglies.”

The free book will also be a clean file, without any DRM encoded into the digital copy. Readers need to fill out a short form at the Simon & Schuster website, leaving only an email address and a zip code.

Here’s more from the site: “We know everyone’s excited for Scott Westerfeld’s new book Leviathan, coming out in October. What to do while you wait? Get caught up on his amazing Uglies series, starting with a free book download of Uglies. Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?” (Via BoingBoing)
