Free Kindle Books 10-21-13

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.

JET (International Action / Adventure Thriller)
Code name: Jet

Twenty-eight-year-old Jet was once the Mossad's most lethal operative before faking her own death and burying that identity forever. But the past doesn't give up on its secrets easily.

When her new life on a tranquil island is shattered by a brutal attack, Jet must return to a clandestine existence of savagery and deception to save herself and those she loves. A gritty, unflinching roller-coaster of high-stakes twists and shocking turns, JET features a new breed of protagonist that breaks the mold.

Like gourmet smoked and salt-cured foods? Parma hams? Cold-smoked salmon? Pancetta and other "real" bacons? Spare ribs and brisket?
Want to make them at home? With all the taste, authentic flavour and trimmings of the store-bought items, but at a fraction of the cost?
Everything you need is right here. Equipment, tools, accessories and recipes, and a whole range of new techniques and methods to home-smoke, bbq and dry cure delicacies like prosciutto hams, cured bacons, salmon, spare ribs, biltong, jerky, brisket – to name just a few!
Over 500 pages, generously illustrated, and written in simple language, "Really Simple Cold Smoking, BBQ and Salt Curing at Home" is actually three books in one – at a price that would be a bargain for just one of them!
In this definitive book you'll discover
- the little known secrets of the pros for making up your own rubs, pastes, marinades, mops, bastes and sauces;
- the unique characteristics of different woods and fuels used in the food smoking process, and which are best for different applications;
- a range of smoked foods which could, for many readers, represent new and exciting food territory; – foods like smoked and salt-cured fruit, nuts, dairy products (cheeses and butters), molluscs and other seafoods which are – quite simply – delicious!;
- how simple, and how comfortably within the capabilities of most people deli-style cold-smoking, or dry-curing really is!;
- survival secrets of "emergency" food smoking for hikers, campers, hunters, fishermen and survivalists, who would like, while still in the wild, to smoke any bounty collected from the outdoors, but who frequently don't have access to conventional (or any!) smoking equipment to do so;
- how-to build your own food smoking and dry-curing equipment at home – partly as a low-cost alternative to the (undoubtedly excellent, but often fairly expensive) commercial equivalents, and partly for the good, warm feeling of accomplishment it brings!; and
- Illustrated charts showing the major cuts of meat from each of the main animal groups – pork, beef, lamb and venison.... and the list goes on!
Readers of How-To Instructional books (like this one) fall somewhere between two extremes. At one extreme are those who want to know "Why?" before they learn "How?" At the other extreme are those who simply want a clear-cut set of instructions.
The publishers in this book unravel the Gordian knot – and satisfy both classes of reader by covering both the "Why" and the "How" in the first half of the book, while limiting the second half to just the "How".
Whatever your current level of expertise and skill, there'll be something in this book to expand and enrich it. Get it now!
