Didn't specify, so didn't bother downloading the app. I have a few reading apps already. Maybe when I run out of reading material (can't see that happening ).....
Is there a link to the offer page please?

Says encrypted epub on the website. Wouldn't have thought that calibre could decrypt a custom encryption.
I'd be more impressed if companies gave free stuff to poor people throughout this crisis instead of to NHS staff.

Some NHS staff are suffering because of this crisis, but not financially. Doctors, nurses, porters etc are still being paid as they take risks. Many NHS staff are not suffering at all as they are admin staff, managers etc who, like my NHS accountant brother, work in an office block and never see a hospital or a patient in their whole working lives.

I'd be more inclined to patronise companies which give freebies to the unemployed, the self-employed or others with cash problems because of this crisis.
My partner works for the NHS and they
are not allowed to use the NHS email for security reasons, there are a few of these offers going round and she can't access them.

I’m a manager and my day job has been turned on it’s head due to Covid-19. The frontline staff are the heroes but we’re all playing our part. It’s a team effort.
I thought it was for any ebook?

Why si the list of allowed ebooks not more clear?

It's for the one of the ebooks from the list added to the top post
Like most I agree NHS deserve all the good that is offered to them.

Carers and some other key workers don't get much or nothing at all.

I feel for the supermarket and other small shops staff some only have a sheet of plastic in front of them others nothing. They are doing a great job and deserve a little bit of appreciation.

Just my thought, i don't work for any of the above.

Stay safe, seen many people who purposely walk in to you like they are immune to everything.
Fab I picked up The Witcher. Heat added.

I thought the kindle books were encrypted. You can load your kindle key into calibre and then convert it to another format I believe.

It might be possible, not sure if it would be legal though. You might only have the right to read it on their software etc
