Bug Description

Trying to download a book from your supplier Feedbooks I got the erro message.
The book showed on the list from the "Get Bookls" function as a free book but when I clicked on another from the same author which had a proce tag on it, I was sent to the site. I cannot find any place on that site which shows books at no cost. Is that teh source of the error?
Here's the full error report:

OS: Win 10 64bit
Calibre Version . 28 (Just installed an new update, 2.81.0 and restarted the program but the bottom bar still shows 2.81.0 as an available update. For whatever reason the installer did not do the restart which is what I am used to; I had to do it manually.

It's because the book has a free sample, which get books regards as a free
version of the book. I will fix it to ignore the samples in the future.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
