The Bee is Free: Free eBook of The Beekeeper's Apprentice

The Bee is Free
If you're reading this and haven't read The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King yet, run, do not walk, to TheBeeIsFree.com for a free eBook. Like mysteries? Like Sherlock Holmes? You'll love this. Don't like mysteries and couldn't care less about Sherlock Holmes? (We need to talk...) Give it a try; it's free!

The book will be free to download starting today, April 1st (No, it's not an April Fool's Day joke!) and remain available until April 15th.

If I were to be marooned on a desert island tomorrow, this is one of the books I would want with me.

  5. I have already downloaded my free copy :)

    I am just starting a mystery unit with my 7th graders and we will read a couple of Sherlock Holmes short mysteries. I thought this would be a great recommendation to those who wish to continue reading this same genre over the summer.

  6. Molly, that's wonderful! I owe my eighth grade teacher -- bless the man -- a world of thanks for introducing me to Doyle's work. He assigned "The Red-Headed League" for homework the first week of school and I was immediately hooked.
