I just learned from my publisher that the Kindle edition of my book, The College Solution: A Guide for Everyone Looking for the Right School at the Right Price, will be free next week.
That’s right, The College Solution on the Kindle will be FREE from Aug. 9 to Aug. 14. Normally the Kindle version is $9.99.
Why is the publisher giving my book away? It’s the publisher’s hope that when more families get my book into their hands – or actually into their Kindle — this will lead to even more sales of the hard copy of the book.
For those of you unfamiliar with the book, here are just 4 of the money-saving tips that you’ll discover in my book:
Colleges are priced like airline tickets. The average discount at private colleges is 33.5%.
- It’s possible for “B” students and poor test takers to win fat financial awards.
- The biggest sources of grants come from the colleges themselves not private scholarships.
- Looking beyond your state can attract extra cash for college. In California, 84% of college students attend in-state institutions vs. Texas (87%), Florida (74%), Illinois (67%), Pennsylvania (55%) and Massachusetts (43%).

ALSO, if you’ve already read The College Solution, I’d urge you to check out my new eBook, Shrinking the Cost of College: 152 Ways to Cut the Cost of a Bachelor’s Degree, which you can only buy on my website.

- How to attend out-of-state public universities for in-state prices.

I went on my Kindle today and it is not showing The College Solution on the Kindle will be FREE from Aug. 9 to Aug. 14.
When will it be available for free download?
Mike – I am sorry that the Kindle edition of The College Solution wasn’t free today. I have no idea what happened and I have emailed the publisher. I have jotted down your email and will send you a message when the problem is corrected. I apologize for the hassle!!
