Free Tally!

With Leviathan on its way (60 days and counting!) my publisher and I thought we would give you guys a little present. So for the next month, Uglies will be available free in pdf form.

That’s right: Free book! Free Uglies! Free Tally!


Of course, this isn’t just free for you, my faithful blog readers. I mean, if you’re reading this, chances are you’ve got a copy of Uglies sitting around somewhere already. But if you have any friends, siblings, crushes, or enemies who you think might be interested in the series, why not send them over?

Cause, you know, people like free stuff.

Oh, and by the way, the first chapter of Leviathan is also included, along with an illustration you probably haven’t seen before. (That’s right, this is all a promotional scheme! Bwah-hah-hah!)

Click here to go to Simon & Schuster’s free download site.


A quick technical note:
Obviously you can read a pdf on your computer, and both Sony e-Readers and Kindles take them too. If you have technical questions, feel free to ask them in this comments thread. I probably can’t help you, but hopefully somebody will.

Also: the download site asks for a US zip code, which is five numbers.

  1. Ping to Kat-la
    OMG!! Me too! I hated reading before i read the Uglies books and now I’m a total book worm!

  2. Every time i read uglies, i always wonder.. whats the color of cat vomit
    hahaha So dizzy-making O_O!

  3. Arg…I’ve been camping in the okanogan for the last week, and the internet connection is poop. I’ve been trying to download this forever and nothing…I come home and it’s done in 3 seconds!
    and the leviathan chapter was the same one that was in B2B 🙁
    but it is still kool to have Uglies on my computer.

  4. omg…..Uglies…..such a long time since i’ve responed to your posts…good times:) i have to get a copy of Leviathan!!!!!!!

  5. Ani-lalaland: Apparently Aussie postcodes work too. It’s just those pesky Canadian and UK ones, which have letters in them, that are a problem.

  6. wow thats so awesome! ive recommended the uglies series to all of my friends so far so i hope this will help them get a head start knowing they can read it for free haha.

  7. i have two little brothers. one of them enjoys messing around with our family computer. some how, he’s done something and i can no longer read pdf’s. NOT HAPPY JAN.

  8. mui gracias Scott-la!!!
    I have a copy of Uglies of course, but I’ll check out the Lev excerpt and art.

  9. This doesn’t have anything to do with this post, but do you ever send out a newsletter? I signed up for it, but I never get one. Thanks! <3

  10. Yay free download of one of my favorite books by you! 🙂

    I’m so excited for Leviathan! 😀 I’m going to be first in line at Borders for it! 🙂

  11. Scott, you should put the free Uglies download in your Bonus Stuff section. 🙂 Just a suggestion. 🙂

  12. I saw the new G.I.Joe movie yesterday, and they have a few scenes where people have invisible suits on, and i just totally thought of uglies! just so you guys know.

  13. Pretty cool, Scott-sama. I already own every Uglies-related book you’ve made (and the hardcover copies of Specials and Extras – speaking of which, is there every going to be a hardcover-version of Uglies and Pretties? Because I really want them!), but I might check out the Levithan excerpt.
    Free stuff is always nice, huh? Especially when it comes from the best author evah~

  14. I just read a comment up there and almost peed my pants sorry… thats evil yet very smart hes right who doesnt like free stuff lol

  15. i have a dilemma… i need to take a shower, but it is storming outside. i dont wanna take a shower during a storm because of the electrocuted in the shower myth… 🙁

  16. OMG… I LOVE the Uglies series… i think they should make a movie out of it….. i would LOVE to be in it if they do!!!!!! :-))))

  17. I can’t get it to work – it gives me a ‘this page is unavailable’ sign when I try to do it.
    Would it be wrong of me to ask one of the people who’ve already got it to email it to me? Because after all the reviews and things…well, I needz it!

  18. I got this a couple days ago but im commenting anyways cuz this is my FAV series. next i think im gonna read midnighters it sounds good, hope it is

  19. I love it! I’m so glad I downloaded it. My library is crap and doesn’t have any of your books. And the really cool part about it was that the day I started reading it I was the same exact number of days from my 16th birthday as Tally when the book began. How weird is that?

  20. ACK! I missed it!???? *sigh* at least I still have the hard copy. Thats what happens when you ditch the internet for a month. This series is the best! <3 Uglies!

  21. o man i just tried to download it says sorry to late not available anymore …. i really wanted to read it !!!

  22. Dude thats really cant believe i missed it, i don’t actually own the book, but ive read it so many times.
    P.S.-cool tid-bit thought i’d add in here tally on the cover of uglies you can see the photograghers outline in her eye so check that out if u get it

  23. bailey-wa, what do you mean the outline of her eye. are there any other good places to comment on this site???

  24. This is Perfect! I’m already reading it at school but still, i don’t have the money to be able to buy the book myself but now it’s uglies for free. If i said that correctly ? But, still it’s amazing how Scott made this possible. He is a greta author very inspiring to many others. I got inspired the moment the book came out just by reading like two pages of it in the book store waiting for my bus. His art and creative ideas come together.

    He will ALWAYS have another book, but never in the series of uglies. He’s in some what way of J.K. Rowling fan, i mean J.K. wrote a magical series that was full of laughs,tears, and just inspiring breath taking sentences of life.

  25. Прошу прощения, что я вмешиваюсь, но мне необходимо немного больше информации.

  26. I don’t know If I said it already but …This blog rocks! I gotta say, that I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂

    A definite great read….

  27. mi fav characters in the 1st 3 books are Shay and Peris but for the last book mi fav characters are Frizz and Aya. Me and mi best friend are hook on the series we have both read the series 3 times!!!!!!! and i love the ending to EXRTAS i am glad that Tally had a happy ending even if it wasn’t with Zane

  28. i love this series!! It’s amazing 😀
    I think there should be at least another book
    I’ve been up all nght for the last few nights reading them – they’re the best!!
