*** SPECIAL MESSAGE TO AUTHORS: You are welcome to join us for conversation, but please DO NOT SELF-PROMOTE or POST LINKS to your book. THANK YOU. ***

Good morning, all! This thread is inspired by "Princess" Joyce, presently on hiatus.

Our goal is to be compassionate, respectful and supportive of posters on this thread, while finding as many free books as can fit on a Kindle. Friendly chat about topics of the day is welcome.

We want you to feel comfortable here on the Free Books and Chat thread, so we have put together a page listing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) regarding abbreviations, the Cloud Reader, and posting your selections as a hotlink. We hope you enjoy your time with us.

Hi Ketta.


Link to yesterday's thread...
FREE Books and Chat - Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Just happened to catch 7 tonight. My lucky day.

I actually proofread your title tonight. One of my duties as Wing. Monday, I glanced at the title and didn't notice that it was incorrect. Oops. Our thread deletion practice paid off. If all the posts in a thread are deleted, the whole thread disappears.

Perfect 1:00:00. Way to go!

Even though you are EDT, your timestamp on the P1 post is 1:00, right?

Hi Dana. We were wondering about you. Nospin's calendar was unclaimed tonight.

Tail links are done.

Randy, you taught me that 7 seconds is the magic number, LOL
Pressed the "start discussion" button at 3:59:53 and viola!

Yes, all discussion posts are timestamped PDT for me... so I'm constantly adding 3 hrs to find the "real" time, LOL.

Dana, I only took it because you weren't on the schedule and hadn't checked in... we all need that break sometimes, it's all good.

So sorry I'm late for launch :( but, on a happy note, good morning Randy and Ketta!!

I've been playing Diablo 3, and other online games. Just taking a break from reality for a bit lol

It's kind of a good thing that I'm not launching tonight, because I'm watching my brother for my parents, and staying up til 8am, then sleeping til 3pm just wouldn't do. This way, I can get to bed soon, and get up with him in a few hours, and spend the day with him. He has down's syndrome. He's high functioning, and would be able to entertain himself while I slept, but, I'd feel really bad that I was supposed to be spending time with him, and I wasn't.

Good morning all - and congratulations on a perfect launch!

Lots of yellow banners for me today!

However, did find a few:

Exiled: Autumn's Peril (The Chronicles of Caleath) Fantasy
Exiled and driven by guilt and vengeance, Caleath, adept in virtual reality games, finds himself on a world where magic rules. Assassins hunt him, ghosts haunt his nights, a sorcerer covets his knowledge and a beautiful hostage complicates his escape.
Washed ashore from the wreck of the Albatross, tortured in mind and body, Caleath uses his dreaded nanobots in order to survive and reluctantly befriends the young Gwilt Their search for the survey satellite, which could lead Caleath home, unveils the terrifying world of 'a dark soul, black magic and a bloody sword'.
On this perilous journey, an assassin destroys Caleath's healing nanobots, and exiles from his home planet follow his every move. He takes the beautiful Nasith, of the Ferran clan, hostage to keep the assassins at bay, but her presence endangers him more. A sorcerer forces Caleath to aid the Council of Mages when he discovers Caleath carries vital knowledge that could save the Sharyac people from the invading Tarack, a species of giant ants.

Freezer Burn Mystery
Peri Minneopa has heard her name mangled a thousand ways and hates them all. What she likes are clean houses, and dirty martinis.
She recently traded in her housecleaning business for a P.I. license. Her timing seems perfect, when she cleans a former client's freezer and finds a severed hand inside, wearing an expensive ring. The client, Benny Needles, is a Dean Martin fanatic who swears he's innocent. But where there's a hand, there's a body, waiting to be found.
It's a brand new world for Peri, and she has a lot to learn. Her first lesson is that investigating murder can be dangerous. Her boyfriend, Skip, a detective in the Placentia Police Department tries to warn Peri, but she can't stop sticking her nose into the middle of things. In the middle of trying to solve the case, Peri takes on a surveillance job and finds that even surveillance isn't always low risk.
As these two cases collide, will Peri learn the truth behind both of them? And more important, will she ever get that dirty martini?

Murder, passion, music and war combine in this riveting story of a troubled pianist who doesn't know if he's a murderer...
EDGAR-NOMINATED AUTHOR LIBBY STERNBERG tells the brooding story of a classical pianist-turned-conductor who cannot remember the night his nemesis was murdered. Did he commit the crime-or did an enchanting soprano do it, a woman with whom he is falling in love? In the fall of 1941, as war creeps ever closer, his freedom and happiness depend on his ability to either identify the murderer or recall his own actions that night. With parallels to well-known operas, Death Is the Cool Night takes readers behind the scenes of a music conservatory and into the heart of some of the most beautiful compositions ever written for voice.

Chinese Soup Made Easy (Chinese Homestyle Recipes) (depending on the review queens)
Loving the Norseman (The Hansen Series) (I tend to pick anything with a Norway link)
Stranded with a Scotsman (Lindisfarne is special to me)
THE CLASH OF THE BRIDESMAIDS (Big family wedding coming up)
There's no such thing as Werewolves (Demons Rising) (were is trigger word)
...and that's it for me from kinlib...

Once you have opened the cloud reader in a different browser than IE it also works in IE for some reason - it is added to your one-click choices (and thank you, Amazon, for that!)

Ketta says:
Kelly, the explanation about the Cloud and the Cloud Reader on the FAQ is correct.

Maybe you need to review it, it does say that IE is not a supported browser UNTIL you first "install" it with a supported browser, which is what you did when you switched to Chrome. It very clearly explains in the FAQ that you need to do that step "just once" and then you can go back to IE and have it as a one-click option.

Here are my choices for today so far.

Eve knew the stories of the Fall, of a time before she wandered into the colony of Eden, unable to recall anything but her name. She's seen the aftermath of the technology that infused human DNA with cybernetic matter, able to grow new organs and limbs, how it evolved out of control. The machine took over and the soul vanished. A world quickly losing its humanity isn't just a story to her though. At eighteen, this world is Eve's reality.

In their Fallen world, love feels like a selfish luxury, but not understanding what it is makes it difficult to choose between West, who makes her feel alive but keeps too many secrets, and Avian, who has always been there for her, but is seven years her senior.

The technology wants to spread and it won't stop until there is no new flesh to assimilate. With only two percent of the human population left, mankind is on the brink of extinction. While fighting to keep Eden alive, Eve will discover that being human is about what you will do for those you love, not what your insides may be made of. And even if it gets you killed, love is always what separates them from the Fallen.

Sins of the Father (Ghosts II)- part 1 was free a few weeks ago
Beth Keneally is out for revenge. Her father hacked her to death with an axe and now seems determined to kill her little sister as well. For Beth, this means only one thing. She has to learn how to manifest as a physical presence and make sure her father pays for what he did to her.

Meanwhile there's a mysterious figure lurking on the edge of town, a mythical 'Red Man' who strikes fear into the heart of the entire town. As Beth and Kal investigate this 'Red Man', they discover that all the dark secrets they uncover lead back to one man: Lucas Everard.

Sins of the Father (Ghosts II) is the second volume in the Ghosts series. Each book is approximately 20,000 words, and readers are advised to read them in order, starting with the first book. Contains swearing, violence and mild sexual references.

Toby Streams the Universe
Toby Hay is a psychic living in New York City, supporting his screwed-up family using his visions to play the stock market. He also helps his private investigator best-friend with the occasional case--all while trying not to read the future of every person he meets. Such as Toby's new neighbor, a beautiful painter hiding from her violent Ex. Or Toby's psychic, sex-pot, sister, scared of her own future. Or his quirky virtual-assistant, struggling to care for her sick child. Toby wants to help them all, but his super-psychic father trained him not to interfere, lest he lose his own sanity in the process. Toby's father knew everything--he must have had good reasons for his rules. Of course, he vanished nearly a year ago...

Then a voice speaks in Toby's mind, offering a path away from the dark future predicted by the Family Histories--if only Toby will challenge what his father taught him and learn to use his visions, rather than merely control them. Now Toby must find his father, uncover the identity of the voice, and save his friends from their futures, all while figuring out how to live inside his own, increasingly strange mind.

Seeds of Discovery (Dusk Gate Chronicles - Book One)
Nobody at Bristlecone High School has ever paid attention to William Rose. Since the day he arrived in the small, mountain town years ago, he's blended into the background.

Quinn Robbins never noticed William at all, until the icy Friday night he suddenly appeared directly in the path of her car, and just as suddenly vanished. After that, she found herself noticing him constantly, seeing for the first time just how different he was.

First were the books he always had his nose buried in. Why would a senior in high school always be reading medical journals? Then there were his habitual appearances down by the river every Friday night, just like the night she almost hit him - not to mention his odd habit of disappearing there, with no place and no reason to hide!

Overtaken by a sense of curiosity that she just can't seem to shake, Quinn finds herself trying to figure out exactly what is going on with him. When he starts to show up in her dreams, she can't decide if her curiosity has become too much of an obsession ... or if there is something ... more.

Finally it becomes clear that the answers she seeks might only come from finding out what is happening at the river. But on the night Quinn decides to follow him, her very new mystery draws her fatefully to a very old mystery. To a discovery she thought could only exist in a fairy tale.

Uh oh, Quinn. 1st Period History will never be the same!

In the Dusk Gate Chronicles, you'll meet characters who find their way straight into your heart, on a journey you'll long to join. Join readers everywhere as you fall in love with the Dusk Gate Chronicles
