Harlequin is celebrating 60 years and they'll be giving away 16 ebooks for free. I don't know if it's like their Christmas deal - like a book a day or all 16 books in one day.
You're suppose to be able to sign up for a reminder at: Harlequin Celebrates but I don't think it's working cuz when I click on the "Remind Me" button nothing happens. I just made an annotation on my own calendar though to check out the site on the 29th.
I wonder if the 16 free books are the ones currently listed on the eHarlequin homepage?
ETA: The e-mail reminder is working today.

Today I downloaded all 16 books in mobipocket format. Then I downloaded one of them in PDF format. So it appears we can download all 16 books now in however many different formats we want.
I can compile a list, although it might take me a bit.

2. Hide In Plain Sight - Marta Perry (Love Inspired Suspence)
3. Stranded With A Spy - Merline Lovelace
4. Kiss Me Deadly - Michele Hauf
5. Slow Hands - Leslie Kelly (Harlequin Blaze)
6. Price Of Passion - Susan Napier
7. Baby Bonanza - Maureen Child
8. Irresistable Forces - Brenda Jackson
9. Dancing In The Moonlight - Raeanne Thayne
10. Snow Bound - Janice Kay Johnson
11. Once A Cowboy - Linda Warren

Jess, it was way easier than my experience with downloading from their estore. It was pretty much just clicking on a single link for each title, and waiting for the download to complete.
Hope that helps!

We're not actually downloading from the Harlequin site. It's a site set up expressly for this special.
Today's downloads were very simple and I downloaded all 16 mobipocket files in about 10 minutes!
That's too funny but it happens to me also! A search in your PC directory for *.pdf should pull them up for you!
I downloaded them in mobipocket format and PDF format. I like to have books on my PDA at all times so I can start reading a book while I'm out and continue it later in the PDF format if I like.
What's wierd is that they were no longer available in mobipocket format after around noon on the 29th. I noticed that when I was downloading the PDF at that time. I'm glad I downloaded the mobipocket formats earlier that morning!
I went to teh l ink for the pdf and re-did them..used the link for 'having problems' where it walked me through actualy choosing the directory and everything so pretty sure they're on the computer this time!
