None. I'm getting a bit tired of free downloads and would like to go back to choosing my own reads Besides, I am in a re-reading period and haven't bought anything new lately, and what I bought before that I haven't read yet.
I'm with FlorenceArt - once my TBR list reached ridiculous proportions, I too have decided no more free downloads. I might download an occassional freebe from Amazon, but I haven't read Under the Dome, for heaven's sake!

8 so far, but there could be more to add to my never ending list of reading material!

None so far, but I've uploaded some titles to the MR library.

did not know so nope did not d/l....BUT knowing likely would not have altered the fact I did not d/l anything. I already have a solid 3-4yr backlog of titles to read between buying during the big Fictionwise sale, buying oodles from Baen/Webscriptions just because, Baen's free catalog, free d/l's from Amazon for titles which look interesting as well as other sources at last count I had just under 500 titles to read. Now some are simple and very casual interest which I will never read, but most are titles I fully want to read.

Only a handful. Nothing from sites that require registration to download freebies, unless I've already got an account with them. I may hit Smashwords for some of those, but I've found I won't get around to reading them unless they *really* seem appealing, or someone who knows me recommends a title to me.

I'm getting a lot more selective about my ebook reading.

I've downloaded eight so far from MR, but that includes three omnibuses.

I'll get back to you at the end of the week!

Not so much 'downloaded' as collecting. My Kindle came with 2 DVD's full of free stuff - 15,000 titles on one, 17,100 on the second. All public domain stuff. I'm in the process now of uploading most of them (probably leave out the Erotic Fiction - sorry) to my "SkyDrive" site and I'll post the URL when it's ready. -- Truely, more than you can shake a stick at.

Well I haven't actually downloaded anything, but I went through Smashwords and "bought" almost all the books that were being offered for free, except for a few that I knew I'd never be interested in.

I figure I can just leave them in my Smashwords library and go through them at my leisure. it doesn't hurt to have them available there.

I do think the eBook Week website can do a better job of listing the free eBooks. Some of the links just take us to the site (such as BooksOnBoard) and leaves us to flounder around trying to find them.
