Hi Ketta. Sorry to hear that you're feeling under the weather.

Off to do tail links. BRB. Done.

Be prepared to be lonely. It has been really dead at launch time recently.

eReader has updated at 1:40 am PDT
10 full pages * 48 = 480

@Dana. I'm sort of in and out. Not a lot to do. I'll post the hotlinks instructions, and when you feel like it, you can post the Freebies.

Yeah, me too. Actually *reading*. I'm feeling so virtuous. I just finished Beauty and the Feast (NOT Free Now) and found it enjoyable. I'm 17% into The Secret Desires of a Soccer Mom (NOT Free Now) and so far, it is OK, but the main woman is sort of neurotic, and her kids are out of control, and not in a good way. I'll stick with it for a while, but if it doesn't improve, I'll probably not finish it.

I just got The Lovely Bones (NOT free now) as a gift from my parents, and it's a really good book, I'm only 9% in, and it's already given me the shivers and brought tears to my eyes.

MMM yeah, I already had the Appalachian Table Cookbook and the Vintage Cookie Recipes, and, since I was raised mostly vegetarian, picking up the How to Cook Steak book was perfect for me <bg>

My mother is a vegetarian, I'm not. I have nothing against the lifestyle, but, sometimes, I want a nice, thick, juicy hunk of meat on my plate lol

The Index, Book 2: Secrets Fantasy, magic (YA?)
After a century of tentative peace, there is cause to celebrate - the old-fashioned way.The High Mage Ranking Tournament is back for the first time in a thousand years. (I snagged NOT FREE NOW The Index, Book 1: Mages (The Index Series) on 4/17)

Wallflower (The Old Maids' Club, Book 1) Romance
The choice between adhering to a long-held pact and finally accepting love could prove Lady Tabitha Shelton's unhinging. She is plump, plain, pleasant . . . and thoroughly unappealing to any of the men of the ton-apart from fortune hunters. A self-appointed wallflower, she has every intention of remaining one. Tabitha made a vow of spinsterhood with her cousins when they were girls, and she refuses to go back on her word. So far, she's proven herself quite adept at warding off the blasted fortune hunters' pursuits.
Noah deLancie, Marquess of Devonport, would prefer to marry for love and companionship-he's a gentleman through and through-but circumstances have forced his hand: he needs money as badly as he needs a bride. When Noah's brother-in-law suggests pursuit of his sister, Tabitha, a woman with a dowry large enough to cause even Croesus to blush and who is tantalizingly good company to boot, Noah stumbles into the future he hopes to secure. He'll stop at nothing to convince Tabitha to marry him.
Nothing, that is, except perhaps the barrel of a dueling pistol, held to his face by his ladylove.

Confession Is Murder (The Patron Saint Mysteries) Mystery
For middle-aged "Jersey girl," Lucille Mazzarella, only two things in life really count--her family and her friends. When her brother-in-law's body falls out of the confessional at church, everything she holds dear is threatened, especially when the police arrest her husband for the murder. Plagued by hot flashes, a thickening waistline, a mother addicted to the home shopping channel and tempted by a sexy old flame come back to town, Lucille really has her hands full. But while Lucille may not know much about solving crimes, she does know her patron saints. With some prayers, fast thinking and even faster talk, Lucille manages to nail the killer and restore order to her life.
Lucille's number one favorite patron saint: St. Jude, patron saint of lost causes. Because Bernadette is pregnant and unmarried, her boyfriend is in jail, Lucille's husband might be playing around, her best friend could be a murderer, and Lucille has gained ten pounds thanks to her latest diet.

Better Off Without Him (Romantic Comedy) Romantic Comedy
Mona Berman is an expert at Happily Ever After - after all, she's a best-selling Romance writer and happy endings are what she does best. So when her husband of twenty years leaves her for somebody 15 years younger, 20 pounds lighter, and French, she's got a lot of adjusting to do, both personally and professionally. Lucky for her she's got three savvy teen daughters, a few good friends, and Ben, the world's sexiest plumber, to help her along the way.
First she decides that her next book will be the anti-romance - her heroine finds the best part of her life AFTER getting dumped. Next her daughters tell her she needs to start practice dating, and summer at the Jersey shore is the perfect place for that. She's also juggling her soon-to-be-ex, a loony aunt, and a match-making neighbor, while Ben is sending her romance-driven imagination into overdrive. Can Mona's life imitate art? Can she write her own happy ending?

Midnight Sun Romantic Suspense
This wasn't the adventure she'd signed up for...
A sexy boss, a rough crossing, and pirates-all Brylie Winston wanted was a job to help her earn money to buy her own restaurant. She hopes to earn it by working as a chef on a cruise to Antarctica. But she's slept with her boss, which throws her off-balance even more than the rough seas and warnings of pirates in the area. And he's determined to have a repeat performance...
Bad boy former snowboarder Marcus Devlin is running from his reputation, sent to learn the family business after decking a senator's son and making the papers. So maybe he indulged in a last-minute fling before boarding his family's cruise ship to Antarctica. Perhaps Fate is showing him that wasn't so bad-the gorgeous redhead who snuck out of his bed is on the cruise. She'll be a lovely distraction during his exile.
But when modern-day pirates take over the ship, his instinct is to protect her and the other passengers. But what does a spoiled rich boy know about saving people's lives?

Arsonist: The Most Dangerous Man in America History
James Otis was disgusted by the anti-democratic feudal structure of society and threatened to set it all "in a flame" though, he confessed, he too would likely be consumed in the fire. By the winter of 1760, this provincial bourgeoisie, one of the wealthiest and most intelligent men in the British colonies, had become fully radicalized. That his words - a promise and a prophecy - came to full fruition and his predictions about the province and his own life were entirely accurate would be unbelievable if it didn't actually happen.
After an analysis of colonial political, social, legal and religious evolution prior to Otis's threat, Arsonist provides a detailed, lively illumination of the issues and personalities involved in overthrowing the local government of the world's greatest empire. A group of largely forgotten men - Otis, Sam Adams, Oxenbridge Thatcher, Jonathan Mayhew, Thomas Cushing, Patrick Henry - conceived the new country, after which men such as Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton midwifed it. The conception of the new nation, so vital yet so ignored, occurred in the violent though fertile grounds of Boston and Virginia in the 1760s. And no one was so instrumental to that conception as James Otis, Jr., the forgotten infantry soldier who made the general's glory possible.

EAST of A (an Urban Thriller)
Urban streets don't get much meaner than in the alphabet-street stew of New York City's Lower East Side. But that's where private eye Payton Sherwood plies his trade, a clean-living moralist in a world of drugged-out freakazoids.
Coming home late to an empty refrigerator after a court appearance in Syracuse, the slyly self-mocking Payton ("still in my dark blue suit, narrow maroon tie, and shiny black shoes") decides to pop downstairs to his favorite all-night deli for a jug of milk and a box of Cheerios. But the store has gone out of business during his nine-day absence; he's forced to wander farther east for his needs and winds up having the stuffing kicked out of him when he stops to defend a street girl from attack by a trio of bozos. Worse yet, the girl comes back to steal his Rolex! Highly motivated and mightily pissed, Sherwood goes after the girl and ends up in a former church, now a nightclub called the Hellhole. The real fun of Russell Atwood's first (but obviously not last) mystery is watching him ring all the changes he can on the traditional noir icons without leaning on the crutches of camp or disrespect.

Indecent Proposal Contemporary Fiction
JACK ENGELHARD had a good idea, he would update the always serviceable legend of Faust to get some modern mileage out of it. Mr. Engelhard also created very contemporary players. Joshua Cantor, a Jewish writer and gambler, who makes a bargain with the Devil (a handsome oil-rich billionaire). The struggle between these two embraces a number of primal issues: the sanctity of marriage versus a love of money, the Jew versus significant non-Jews such as shiksas and sheiks, skill versus luck, materialism versus spirituality, Israel versus the Arab countries, the past versus the future, and the religious world versus the secular one.

More Jack Engelhard books free today:
The Prince of Dice
Jack Engelhard ("Indecent Proposal) has produced another winner (literally) by presenting us with a suspenseful moral dilemma featuring Julian Rothschild, a gambler with supernatural powers...and what was the secret to Julian's powers...was it his sublime artistry with dice...was it magic or trickery or prophecy that made him so unbeatable...was it mysticism that made him a hero to his fans and a villain to the casino bosses who wanted him dead and tested him as no gambler had been tested before or since...and what did Julian Rothschild find in the Sinai Desert that turned his game into a form of prayer...Who Is Julian Rothschild!

The Days of the Bitter End
"Where were you when it happened?" We've all been asked this question about many huge tragedies, but one of the biggest is when President Kennedy was assassinated. Lee Harvey Oswald, the grassy knoll, the presidential cavalcade of cars ... all of these images are forever imbedded in our nation's memory. Jack Engelhard, however, gives us a fresh perspective on this occurrence by putting it in a different light entirely. What happens to you when you imitate President Kennedy for a living?
Cliff Harris rises to stardom in the golden years between World War II and Vietnam. He bears an uncanny resemblance to John F. Kennedy and can imitate him so well that even Jackie is shocked. His small-town Philadelphia beginnings eventually lead him to The Ed Sullivan Show and many sold-out performances in Greenwich Village. The Bitter End, a real comedy club at which Engelhard was the doorman for two summers, provides the perfect backdrop for pop historical fiction at its finest.

Escape From Mount Moriah
adventurous, humorous, sometimes wonderfully strange exploits of a youth during his family's adjustment to a new world, these compelling boyhood memories are of an almost Tom Sawyer character, albeit with ironic Yiddish twists. Fleeing from the Nazi invasion of France, the Engelhards, a proud and wealthy family, are forced to adjust to life as common refugees in Canada. Highlighted by a youth's adventures as his eyes open up to his new world, the eighteen compelling short stories combine both the urgency of the family's circumstances with the ironic side of trying to fit into a new culture. With themes of humiliation, intimidation, and alienation, this powerful book illustrates how the Holocaust did not end in 1945, but continued to reverberate through successive decades, even until the present day.

The Bathsheba Deadline
A scintillating love triangle based on the biblical story of King David, Uriah, and the beautiful and desirable Bathsheba, The Bathsheba Deadline is also a clever and wonderfully perceptive look at contemporary journalism...elegant writing...charming slices of life...filled with romance, sex, witty banter, philosophical reminiscences, heart stopping thrills, The Bathsheba Deadline is an entertaining ride.

The Girls of Cincinnati
Eli Brilliant is a dreamer, last of the romantics. He failed to make it in New York as an actor, so now he's back home in Cincinnati. He runs a boiler room, a telephone soliciting operation for Harry's Carpet City. (He is wise to the joke.) That's where he gets most of his girls and his reputation as a ladies' man par excellence. He hates the job and he hates that reputation. He is crazy about one particular girl, the debutant Stephanie Eaton.
These two, Eli and Stephanie, keep falling in and out of love. Can't seem to put it all together. But that's all he thinks about -- Stephanie. Finally, after a trip to LA, Stephanie returns to him seemingly for good, but again something goes wrong, really wrong. Eli has hired a new girl for his boiler room, Sonja Frick, and she is quite deranged. Sonja claims to be clairvoyant, and may well be. From the start, she puts Eli on notice that something evil will come upon this love of his life, Stephanie -- a fate even worse than death.

Slot Attendant -- A Novel About A Novelist
Jay Leonard -- once a rising literary star, now in the dumps -- is a man who has given up on his hopes and dreams, and yet he continues to hope and dream. After a few years of glory as a novelist, he's reduced to minimum wage as a casino slot attendant in Atlantic City, where humiliation is plentiful. He can't go on. He will go on. Anyone who understands that will understand this novel -- a novel told in reserved brilliance.

Hi everybody, good morning. Dana and Randy, thanx for kicking off the day.

Lots of books free today, but nothing really too exciting in in the non-fiction area (for my taste). There are a lot of free children's books, though, if you like this genre.

My picks for today (but I'm not really enthousiastic):
FOODS THAT FILL YOU UP NOT OUT - Feel Fuller Not Fatter - Stop Feeling Hungry - Simple SUPERFOODS to Naturally Control Your Appetite
How to Stay Medium-Young Practically Forever Without Really Trying

And a book mainly for fun: How To Stop Laziness: 6 Steps to Slaying Sloth and Taming Laziness

Have a nice day (:

Selections for the younger set today:

Nobody Can Take My Happy Away
A book with a positive message about bullying written for kids (and adults too) by a kid!
Emily is the new girl at school. She learns quickly that her first day at a new school isn't going to go the way she expected. She gets teased about her appearance among other things. At first, Emily thinks that there is something wrong with her, and wonders if there is something she can fix about herself to get the other kids to stop teasing. She soon learns that the problem isn't her, it's them. Together with some new friends that she initially overlooks due to her worries, they bring about change at their school with confidence, communication and teamwork.

Ned and Buck, a Fish and a Duck
Out on the pond, swam a little brown duck,
next to a fish who's name was Buck.
The little brown Duck's name was Ned
They were the best of friends, everyone said
Buck loved worms, as all fish do
So Ned would catch him one or two
And drop them in the water, for Buck to eat
Down below, beneath Ned's feet
Then Buck would dig up some leafy greens
From the bottom of the pond, came Ned's cuisine
Buck would jump from the water and drop them for Ned
and Ned would catch them with a twist of his head
Then round the pond the two would swim,
Their tummies stuffed up full to the brim
The best of friends you ever did see
Smiling and happy as can be

Maebelle's hat (2)
Mother Hen wants all the farm animals in the barn because Nado is coming.
But little Willy, the hard of hearing duck doesn't know what a Nado is.
Everyone is finally in the barn except for Maebelle, so Willy set out to find
her.
Maebelle is so happy about her Easter Hat that she pays little attention to
Willy, until her hat blows away.

Johnny B. Fast: The Super Spy Part One
Johnny Clunker was an awkward and shy boy who kept mostly to himself. But when the school day ended, Johnny Clunker became Johnny B. Fast, a super spy who worked with Department X to thwart the evils of the world.
Utilizing super technology so advanced that it seems like magic, Johnny and his friends battle the United Order, a ruthless organization trying to acquire the Super Chip - a computer processor so powerful it can virtually hold the world's technology hostage.
When one of his fellow classmates, Nancy Korrins, is also revealed to be a super spy who was trained by the world's most deadly and advanced agent, Johnny has his hands full trying to figure out if he can trust her to help him capture the Super Chip, or if he has to fight her as his greatest rival.

Squidge: Little Elf, Little Bear - Part One
How do you hide a polar bear?
Squidge is a little elf who wants to do what the bigger elves do, but when he meets a new friend who needs his help, Squidge decides he is big enough for the challenge. Will he be able to find a hiding place in time?

For fourteen year old Grace it is no secret. She sees the nightmarish creatures that inhabit higher dimensions. Creatures that secretly feed on people, her parents her friends. Grace is not alone in seeing these monsters, however, cats not only see them but they are our only protection from the menace attacking us.
Grace's adopted stray Boot, knows Grace is special and can see the creatures, now he wants her help in the fight against the Drawl. Grace is transported to Boot's world where cats are waging a war against the enemy.

Finding herself the school outcast, she gains acceptance by becoming champion of the Labyrinth Games in spite of her teammates, the school bullies. Then Alana meets Logan, another outcast and, together, they fight to save their world from the evil Book of Spells.

The Much Ado About Fairy
The Much Ado About Fairy, written especially for the older juvenile reader, is a fanciful story for the young and young at heart. The fairytale's theme: good conquers evil. The story also brings an awareness of Earth's beauty. Added to the plot is a touch of Shakespeare. May the story spark an interest in reading the bard's plays and sonnets.
From the stars of the Universe to the meadows of Merry Olde England, there are fairies abound....hither and yon. Do you have the gift to see fairies? Did Shakespeare? Could his play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, come from first-hand knowledge?
The Much Ado About Fairy is a magical tale of Fanciful Starbright, who learns by a-telling from her great-grandfather that she has fairy relatives on Planet Earth.
Fancy makes a quest, from her star in the Universe, in search of her great-grandmother, Hollyhock. Long before the journey, Hollyhock, who dwells near the Hathaway Gardens, meets young Will Shakespeare. He and the fairy become dear friends. When Fancy arrives on Earth, she happens upon the elder Will while he is composing sonnets. In their friendship, he compares Fancy's scarlet hair to a rose.
Like all roses, there must be thorns. The thorn is in the form of a goblin that plans to wreak havoc upon the Faerie Woodland. With a band of merry followers, including Puck, the impish elf, and Lysander, a fairy prince, Fancy begins her quest to save the perennial flower fairies and the reason for their being. There are many harrowing moments while trekking to the Foggy Bog; and there is much ado.
Will good conquer evil, and will the kingdom be saved? Read on, my readers. Read on.

Adventures In Funeral Crashing (A Kait Lenox YA Chick Lit Mystery) YA
If you're a fan of Janet Evanovich or Meg Cabot check this book series out!

Sixteen year old Kait Lenox has a reputation as the weird girl in her high school, mostly because of her ex-best friend turned mean popular girl, Ariel, but maybe it has a little to do with the fact that Kait has a hobby crashing funerals. At one of these, Kait is outted by the most popular guy in school, Ethan Ripley. Yet, instead of humiliating her for all the world to see, he asks for her help, and Kait finds herself entangled in a murder mystery. Not only is the thrill of the mystery exciting, but more importantly Ethan knows her name! A little sleuthing is well worth that!
