Free Book Friday is now Closed

You read that right – Free Book Friday is officially closed. *SIGH* But we do have one final message for you from FBF Founder, Jessica Brody…



Back in 2008, I posted a giveaway on my website, offering up free signed copies of my first novel, THE FIDELITY FILES. The response to the giveaway was so incredible, I thought, “hey, why not do a signed book giveaway every week?” And Free Book Friday was born. I launched a dedicated site a few months later and the site continued to grow and expand from there. Eventually, it got too big for me to handle on my own and I brought on help — the amazingly talented Christina Diaz, who has been faithfully and brilliantly running the site for more than seven years. Now, sadly, we have come to the decision to close the site permanently.

It’s been an honor to be part of this amazing project and to give books away to readers every single week. Since opening, we’ve given away more than 5,000 free books. That’s an accomplishment I will always be proud of. I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey as much as we have. And please never, ever stop reading.

– Jessica, FBF Founder

We want to thank all the readers who have supported us, as well as the many authors who have been featured with us, over the past few years and wish you good luck in your future reading (and writing) endeavors!


Christina, Jessica, Charlie

& The FBF Team

    Thanks for introducing us to some good books. Will the site stay up as an archive? If not how long will it be up? There are some books on here I will like to add to my Good Reads and Amazon lists.

      Hi Melody,

      we’re hoping to keep the site up with our archived givaways for at least a few more months. However, I’d comb through them as soon as you get the chance if you’re interested in adding any titles to your reading lists. Thanks!
