University of Chicago Press’s Monthly Freebie

Shows a notification with the title, author and cover of this month’s free ebook from UChicago Press


This shortcut scrapes University of Chicago Press’s website and retrieves the title, author, publication year and cover image for their selected free ebook of the month then displays a notification. Clicking on the notification will trigger an alert asking if you want to download the book — selecting OK will open the relevant webpage so you can enter your email (they’ll send you a link for the file). Perfect for running automatically at the start of each month (I run it on the 4th because they don’t always update it on the 1st).
