What happens when a "free" book today doesn't download?

Today I've tried to download several "free" books only available today and bookshout isn't working properly. If I've made the attempt will it still be free when the site decides to work or will there be a cost tomorrow?

    I just re-tried to purchase and the page is doing the exact same thing.

    You didn't indicate whether I had to fill in the billing details or not. I didn't and hit the process card button because there is no other way to submit.

    I'm guessing your website has other issues since your reply indicates you closed the discussion on:

    This seems odd considering I opened it on September 26 at 1:16 pm your time.

    Good Afternoon lauristg,
    I think you accidently re-opened and previous discussion rather than your latest one. I answered your latest question regarding your Canadian address.
