List Rules eBooks that were offered for free for at least 24 hours in 2012.

As more readers continued to turn to electronic devices as their new format of choice, giving away digital copies of books became a mainstream marketing tactic for authors. Amazon launched KDP Select, a program that allowed authors to pick up to 5 days to offer their ebook free on Amazon. And make them free they did. On any given day on Amazon there were approx. 5,000 free Kindle books available for download. We polled our audience on some of their best free reads of the year and this is the list we came up with. Who are we missing?
