Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
In this case, you actually do have to pay for your meal. But the “expert” recommendations of all the best, affordable, independent places to eat and drink during a road trip in the western U.S. and Canada are—for a moment in time—absolutely free.
That’s right. For a week only, I’m giving away free copies of my Marathon Mouth ebook (normally still a bargain at $10 or less). It covers nearly 900 great cafes, diners, coffee shops, bakeries, food trucks and brewpubs. So no matter where you are, there’s a fine, informal place for a bite or gulp nearby.
This fully interactive ebook (some 500 pages in length) is more than just an eating guide. It’s also a travelogue, offering scores of driving routes, many of them meandering off crowded interstates and winding through fantastic landscapes: mountains, coastlines, rain forests and deserts. If you’re into self-propelled outdoor activities—like hiking, biking, paddling or climbing—I’ve got lots of suggestions for jaunts both short and long.
But surely, there must be a catch? Just one, and it takes no more than a couple of minutes of your time. In exchange for a free ebook, I ask that you consider writing a brief review on Amazon.com, (Amazon.ca in Canada), Apple iBooks or Chapters/Indigo.
If you’re interested in a free book, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you the ebook in your choice of a Kindle (Amazon) or iBooks (any Apple device) file. Note: Even if you don’t have a Kindle, Amazon has a free app that allows you to read ebooks on your computer.
This free ebook offer only lasts until Wednesday, August 31. After that, you’ll have to cough up a bit of dough. Still, it’s less than a burger and fries.
