Good morning all :) Welcome to Free books & Chat. Yes, you're stuck with me for another day, but I'll give someone else a turn tomorrow, I promise. Please help our starving kindle libraries - browse through the links of the free book sites, and let us know what you chose today. What type of books are you in the mood for today?
For drinks today, I've arranged a nice selection of herbal teas, hopefully inspiring some spring thoughts for us. And, as I'm not a cook, I'm going to have to order in some virtual snacks from our virtual cafe. I'm feeling like eating a good cinnamon bun myself. And I'll be sure to order in something special for Courtney - Happy Anniversary!

Next book discussion is tomorrow, Thursday, April 11! The book we will be discussing is NOT FREE NOW - Don't Let Me Go - NOT FREE NOW. Book discussions start in the evening, and go on as long as people want to leave comments. Our host will put a link in Thursday's thread to keep us updated.

Also, while we always keep in our thoughts the health of all of our family members here at FBaC, if you would like to send more personal well wishes to BJ, recovering from eye surgery, please send your message by email to Wendy (Lover of Books). Her email is on her profile. Since BJ is having vision problems, if it's possible with your device, please try to increase your font size to very, very large. Then we'll print these and include them in the card. As Zoo Keeper added, please try to have your messages into Lover Of Books in the next 24 hours.

And, finally, the link to yesterday's thread:
http://www.amazon.com/forum/kindle/ref=cm_cd_pg_pg1?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx1D7SY3BVSESG&cdPage=1&cdThread=Tx3QKH1QG44DDXP

Edited for timeline for well wishes for BJ

It was pointed out to me that I left out one pesky little detail in my post about BJ's card. The DEADLINE!! Obviously, I'm not running on all cylinders, but at least the engine is running! LOL

If you could get these to Lover of Books by 9:00 Thursday morning that would be great! Thanks so much.

Thanks redandwhite - have a good day at work!

Thank you for more details Zoo Keeper, kind hearts should always be appreciated.

Donna, double starter! Good morning everybody and happy birthday, courtney. Off to work (final events).

Posted on Apr 9, 2013, 11:41:54 PM PDT
Spring is here, or at least flowers and bulbs believe so but snow caps once more caressed the mountains' tops.

Posted on Apr 10, 2013, 12:16:04 AM PDT
Thank you Donna for getting us started two days in a row. You truly are on a roll!!! It's a good things you just came back from your vacation and were rested and rejuvenated. ;)

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.
~ Paul Sweeney

Infatuation is when you think he's as sexy as Robert Redford, as smart as Henry Kissinger, as noble as Ralph Nader, as funny as Woody Allen, and as athletic as Jimmy Conners.

LOB - Glad to see you :) I haven't seen many posts from you lately, thought admittedly I have been skimming due to being time poor this week with exams and work and whatnot

Posted on Apr 10, 2013, 1:21:01 AM PDT
Hope you all have a simply brilliant day - I will be hitting the sack on Oz soon.

Good morning Ellem! I have not been feeling well. Trying to get better, but it is slow going.

ETA... I have a question for you....

Question When a book says it is a sampler. Do you basically get very long samples? Are there any complete stories?

Morning LOB :) Sorry you are doing so poorly at the moment. Was getting a bit worried until I saw your post. Keep up with those positive thoughts - I am a big believer in positive thinking - and at they very least it might make you feel stronger inside yourself spiritually which makes it easier to cope on the bad days. Sending more vibes you way ... and please, ask away. I am curious now, lol. You can email me if you prefer. My email is on my profile.

ETA if I haven't responded it just means I have gone to bed, just so you know :)

The Wiccovian Project
Dr. Michael Wiccovian is one of the world's leading scientists, working for the world's largest Corporation - Cenkorp International. When Dr. Wiccovian's daughter comes down with a mysterious and unnatural disease that sends her into a coma, he must do everything he can to save her. To make matters worse, Mike's latest project has the potential to kill millions when it falls into the wrong hands. Mike will do anything to save his daughter in time, but at what price?...

The Last American Martyr
Every now and then one small soul rises from the crowded depths of obscurity and causes the earth to wobble on its axis. This last happened in 2008 when an unemployed doorman stepped onto the worldwide stage in Stockholm and accepted The Nobel Prize for Literature. In this me-me twenty-first century, Thomas Soles may very well be the last American martyr. This self-described "simple man" writes a book that is so powerful it brings back to life the all-but-dead international labor movement. The response to his thoughts and perceptions are astounding. Around the globe, from pole to pole, America to Zimbabwe, the footsteps of marching workers begin to tremor the earth. But not everyone is pleased.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 10, 2013, 2:02:10 AM PDT
It depends on the sampler. Some are samplers by a few different authors, so you can get complete stories (often these are already free, it is a way for the author to get their name/book out) Some samplers are only a few chapters, so basically they are the same as the read inside though I guess the author has more control over how much to include.

I have noticed a few of the bigger publishers doing this lately, actually.

Sorry, I was over in the Links Only thread Ellem. I wanted to ask you about a design that I have seen you post here on FB&C. It reminds me of rain. Slanted lines as I recall. I've looked through the threads and can't find it. I wonder if you know what I'm talking about and can post it for me?

Thank you so much Ellem. I am feeling quite positive and looking forward to a better day tomorrow. ;)
