You are one of the First Readers to subscribe to AKB eBOOKS. Back when this was just an experimental offer on Ashok’s author blog, you were willing to take a chance and pay in advance for your favorite series! You are, and will always remain, an AKB eBOOKS First Reader. You help make it possible for Ashok to take yet another step towards completing and making available his Epic India Library.
ONCE A FIRST READER, ALWAYS A FIRST READER
Your pre-registered account on AKB eBOOKS comes with a 1 Year Series Subscription for each of the Series you had subscribed to earlier. This means you can read online as well as download all the ebooks in those Series.

Once that Series is completed, you can continue to keep all ebooks that have been downloaded to your computer or ebook devices, you can continue to participate in the Forums and explore the other free areas of the website and you will remain an AKB eBOOKS Member for life.

FUTURE PLANS FOR THE WEBSITE
The AKB eBOOKS website is a work-in-progress. Completed in late November 2011, it began with only limited ebooks in three Series being offered at first: MAHABHARATA SERIES (2 ebooks), KRISHNA CORIOLIS SERIES (5 ebooks) and RAMAYANA SERIES (8 ebooks). With each passing month, new ebooks and other content continues to be added. Over the next few years, over 50 ebooks in these and other series will be available here by Ashok himself, as well as a quantity of other exclusive material. You were there at the beginning of this great venture: like a great tree, it may grow slowly, but grow it will. And like any great tree, it needs all the nurturing and nourishment it can get. Your suggestions and inputs are invaluable in helping make this an unique experience and experiment in epublishing.
WHERE ARE MY FREE eBOOKS?
They are being added to the website as we speak. They will show up automatically on your Series Subscription pages once they are released. And because you have been given a free Website Subscription as well, you can read all available ebooks in all series on the website for the duration of your subscription period.
