Free Kindle Books 9-16-13

PLEASE. Do everyone a favor and write an Amazon review if you end up reading a book (or trying to and giving up in disgust). It does not have to be much. Just tell what you think of the book. By the way, many times I have found the 1 and 2 star reviews on self published works to be far more revealing about the book than the more stellar reviews. Reviewers need gratification too, so if a review is helpful to you, please click on the voting button to indicate it was helpful.

Most times these books are only free for a day or two, so you have to grab them while you can. Worry about whether you really want to read it later if it seems interesting. And be careful, they can change from free to not free at any time.

I have decided to list books for no more than one day to avoid cluttering up the posts, unless there is some reason I think the book deserves extra attention.I have also decided to consolidate to a single post, instead of sometimes splitting them up by subject matter.

From the top 100 free list
As is typical, there are also several religious and recipe books on the list today, along with the usual assortment of romance, porn and near porn. I don't call them out because they don't interest me. Click on the link above and search through the Free List Tab if you are interested in such books.

Coconut Flour Recipes: An Alternative to Wheat Flour Cookbook for Celiac, Paleo, and Gluten Free Diets (Quick and Easy Series)
Introducing Coconut Flour Recipes from Dogwood Apps!

What's so special about coconut flour?
Did you know that coconut flour high is high in fiber, low in digestible carbohydrates, gluten free, and it provides a natural sweetness to cookies, bread, cake, and other baked goods? It's a great substitute for other grain flours required for those people on paleo and gluten free diets. Even if you are not on a diet, try baking with coconut flour for an entirely different tasting experience!

What are some of the health benefits of using coconut flour?
First and foremost, it is gluten free. Gluten protein can have numerous negative effects on an individual’s health. This is especially applicable to people with celiac disease. According to the reports revealed by The National Institutes of Health, gluten, especially one which is present in wheat flour, can cause inflammation. This can further cause arthritis and organ damage. This is one of the main reasons why coconut flour is considered beneficial. Since it is gluten free, it does not cause any adverse affects. Thus, you can use it to cook and bake your favorite meals and desserts without worrying.

Secondly, coconut flour has high fiber content. The fiber content present in coconut flour is almost double the amount present in wheat bran. There are a number of health benefits of fiber as well. For one thing it can control and lower cholesterol levels and reducing the level of sugar absorption in the blood stream. In short, using coconut flour in your food can help you considerably lower cholesterol levels.

Third, due to its high protein levels, fiber, and fat it is incredibly filling. If you regularly consume coconut flour in your food you will feel hungry less often.

What are some of the challenges of using coconut flour?
You can't substitute coconut flour for other wheat based flours using a 1:1 ratio. Very little coconut flour is needed when reproducing a recipe.
Coconut flour is clumpy - it must be combined or beaten with other ingredients when used in baking and cooking.
Coconut flour is very absorbent. This means when substituting coconut flour for grain based flours you want to use anywhere from 1/4 or 1/3 a cup of coconut flour for every cup of grain based flour.

Free From Stackpole.
Stackpole puts a book or two up for free periodically.  I have read several of their free books. Some interesting stuff. Most of what I have seen is WWII German military history, with varying quality of translation, some other military history from lesser known units, along with some fishing and other outdoors oriented books.
