From time to time, Microsoft Press offers free eBooks to interested readers for their download and use. Recently, Sales Director Eric Ligman posted a whopper of an offer. It appears in an MSDN blog entitled “Free! Multi-Million eBook Giveaway!” I count a total of 252 titles in this list of free Microsoft Press eBooks July 2017. That’s a LOT of free books, perhaps enough to justify two exclamation points in Ligman’s title.

Perhaps this isn’t pure hyperbole: lots of interesting stuff for FREE!

Here’s how the total list breaks down by category. After that, I’ll recite the Windows Client (mostly Windows 10-related) books on offer:

Like I said, that’s a LOT of books. I know those who read this blog are interested in Windows Client. (“Desktop OS” is mostly what that means.) So, here’s a complete list of those items.

When facing this kind of largesse, I’m reminded of an old rule for eating in a military cafeteria. It goes like this: “Take all you want, but eat all you take.” Or read, as in this case… Enjoy!
