Free Kindle Books 9-6-13

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.

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.

The Next President
J.D. Cade came home to southern Illinois from Vietnam and thought he’d never have to kill again. He was wrong. Someone starts blackmailing him. Not only does this new anonymous enemy know J.D.’s darkest secrets, he also implicates J.D.’s son in a death that could reignite a blood feud.
The blackmailer wants J.D. to use his deadly skills to assassinate Senator Franklin Delano Rawley — the first African-American with a chance to become president of the United States.
In order to save his son, spare Rawley and emerge alive, J.D. must somehow find out who is behind a conspiracy that could change the fate of a nation.

[#2 - has a promising premise.]

Raw Deal (Bite Back)
Prequel to the best-selling Bite Back series.

"I'd lost my entire team, and nearly lost my life. In a way, I had lost my life, and was left with this--a tightrope walk between hunting down creatures people didn't believe existed, and being locked up as one."

After a career-ending incident on a covert military operation, Amber Farrell is surprised to find herself back in her home town of Denver working as a rookie policewoman. But what happened in the army casts a shadow across her life from which she will never be free.

The prequel to the Bite Back series introduces Amber Farrell, a kick ass lady with a secret problem--she's been bitten by a vampire. She's working hard to start a new life, hold down a job and meet all the expectations put on her. When people start to die suspiciously in Denver, Amber has to decide between duty and instinct, between what she should do and what she must do.

Included: Why Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar benefits - It's in all in there with easy 'how to' step by step instruction, so you can benefit yourself from this amazing product.

A major use of apple cider vinegar is that it helps thousands of people to lose weight through an ACV diet. You can keep it simple with my simple, sugar FREE, but naturally sweet ACV drink recipe included.

Readers with diabetes report more even blood sugar and up to a 20% reduction in measurable blood sugar within the first week of use -- That's GREAT news for those of us who have to watch our diets closely.

To exploit the full vinegar benefits, be sure to use raw, organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized vinegar. This high quality, exceptional apple cider vinegar has the 'mother of vinegar' content and contains the highest amount of nutrients, enzymes and helpful bacteria. Hold a bottle up to the light. You should see the cobweb-like strands("The Mother") within a murky amber liquid, that may look strange, but it is your key to getting the many apple cider vinegar benefits waiting for you. Clear, sparkling-looking apple cider vinegar such as Heinz is not what we want here. Heinz makes excellent catsup, but the highest quality apple cider vinegar comes from companies such as Bragg's.
Raw food diets can use apple cider vinegar as a naturally fermented source of great additional nutrition. Natural and organic apple cider vinegar is also great news for Paleo diet food lovers.

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.

Here There Are Tigers: The Secret Air War in Laos, 1968-69 (Stackpole Military History Series)
At the height of the Vietnam War, in 1968 and 1969, Reginald Hathorn flew 229 combat missions as a forward air controller for the U.S. Air Force. He inserted Special Forces teams into North Vietnam and Laos, completed missions for the CIA, and flew missions with the Lao Army. Most of the time, he flew into Laos and called in airstrikes against targets inside that country in a war which did not officially exist, about which the world knew nothing, and which the U.S. government denied.

Boys of '67
At once a gritty, intimate account of combat, an inside look at military leadership in a turbulent era at home and abroad, and a sweeping saga of the modern-day United States Marine Corps, Boys of '67 tells the story of a trio of extraordinary Marines. James Jones rose to become the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. Ray "E-Tool" Smith saw combat in Grenada and Beirut in 1983. Marty Steele reshaped the Marines' tank forces. Together, they represent a generation of Marines who met unprecedented challenges and made the Corps America's premier fighting force.
