Apologises to those who wanted to add titles to this thread, but I've deleted my post.

It seems that some people aren't content with rushing after people who aren't following Amazon's rules and regs, they have to tell us how and where to post now too.

Last Tango in Buenos Aires

Last Tango is free this weekend until Midnight Sunday (U.S.Time) - A love story travelogue exploring relationships between independent women and lusty Latinos. It's set in various locations all over Argentina so a bit of a travelogue also - Great holiday and cultural read

Kind of a weird thread...have you looked at Amazon's top 100? There's also a MOA (meet our authors) thread if you want the authors themselves to talk about themselves.

Self promotion is not allowed here.

If you want free books go to ereaderiq.com.

Self promotion is INDEED allowed here. It's done by the mean girls who like to see their names on the forum, chastising others.

Give a little person a little power and they go a little crazy. That's what we see here. I wish they would all go out and buy radar guns and drive around with them in traffic instead, so that the people with radar detectors would SLOW DOWN. That would actually be something USEFUL that a self-appointed vigilante could do for the world.

Who's self-promoting, Anna?

If you go to ereaderiq.com you'll find tons of free ebooks. Also, BooksOnTheKnob.org has free books daily. I use it all the time.

If you go to the Kindle forum there is a daily free books thread, too.

Anna - Trouble is that means more websites for me to register and get used to. I want the ease of Amazon. It's easy to ignore self-promoting, but not so easy to ignore the arguments that erupt because of people trying to police it.

If you don't like this thread, just don't open it. And, I'm sure you won't, but please don't bring your clique here to ridicule posters.

I will edit my OP to tell people not to self-promote.

Her clique? I'm not part of her 'clique'. But I think what you're doing is wrong.
Louise...do you expect people to come in here and give you books?
ereader has over 3000 new free books every day. Amazon lists their top 100 in every genre. How lazy are you?

I agree with both you and MommaCat. There are so many places to find free books that are easy and require very little time and don't invite author self promotion. I don't really know why she doesn't make use of what's already there, unless she wants authors to self promote.

As far as cliques, it's pretty weird that you become part of one if you agree with someone.

I'm not in charge of what other posters do. Contrary to what you seem to believe, I don't have a clique. These threads are not hidden so just because someone I might know posts here doesn't mean I have "brought" them here.

There are plenty of places you can find free books if you really want to without having to register. You've been given good suggestions. There's no reason you can't use them like everyone else.

Hey Momma! I just came n here, but if the OP is an invitation to authors to come and talk about their new or free books, I fail to see the problem. Not interested? Don't read this thread. But the original post made it fairly clear that authors were welcome. This is NOT a discussion thread which can be hijacked by self-promoting authors; it's a thread specifically FOR the hijackers! What's the problem?

Aerin says:
Hi again Anna: I agree that this is an invitation to authors to self promote. That is unacceptable on discussion threads but why does it bother you on a thread that is openly and clearly inviting it? If there are people who want to read authors' self promotion and authors who want to write self promoting comments, why cannot they do so in peace. I follow a number of threads where others object to what is being said (remember Hating on Ms. Hamilton?) If we are free to enjoy our thread why shouldn't others be free to enjoy theirs?
