Kindle Freebies

A Listmania! list by John Williamson (NYC & Bucks County, PA)
(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 100 REVIEWER)   
The list author says: "There have been a lot of questions that have popped up in the Kindle (and other) forums requesting information on what free books might be available. So what kind of free Kindle books can be found here? New works, such as Caught Stealing, A Dangerous Man, and Six Bad Things, by by Charlie Huston; or Alan Furst's The Foreign Correspondent. There are classics, such as Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy; The First Men in the Moon, by H. G. Wells; The Sea Wolf, by Jack London; and many more.

So if it's a free Kindle book that you're looking for, just enter the words "kindle freebie" as a tagged search term, and you should find a number of works to meet your needs... and please be sure to add more $0.00 "Kindle freebies" as you find them.

What follows here is a rather incomplete list of personal favorites."
