Free Kindle Books 10-9-13

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.

Stones (Data)
Alexander the Great. Genghis Kahn. Julius Caesar. Attila the Hun. Mao. Stalin.

For thousands of years, the Stones have been hidden among us, giving a privileged few the power to rule over masses, destroy old empires and create new ones.

Now it's near the end of the 21st century. On the eve of a trip to Japan, Matt Newmark finds a dark rock in the shape of a claw, and it changes everything. With the help of a Shinto priest, he discovers it’s a Stone, a piece of ancient alien technology that gives him a sweeping view of history and control over time, matter and energy.

But Matt is not alone.

Mikal Ryzaard, a survivor of the Nazi death camps, has a Stone of his own and a burning vision to eliminate suffering and bring back Paradise. With all the resources of the world's largest multinational corporation behind him, he tracks down Matt and makes him an offer.

Join me or die.

This is the first book in the Stones series, a new techno-thriller quadriligy by Jacob Whaler.

Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers (Herbal Medicine from Your Garden or Windowsill)
Not all of us are into formal gardening. A good solution is to make a wildlife garden, with a wild flower meadow and patches of important food plants for wildlife. So you end up with a garden full of weeds and other wild plants. Can you make home remedies from such unpromising material? Yes, you can.

Natural remedies go back into antiquity, and if you think about it, there wasn't the range of plants available which we now expect to find. None of the culinary herbs we all know and love - most of them were taken to the UK by the Romans some 2000 years ago, brought to the New World with the Pilgrim Fathers in the 1600s.

It's believed that even many common weeds originated with the Roman Empire, so now you know who to blame! But they didn't carry these plants with them for no reason. They had a purpose - and that purpose was for use as natural cures for common ailments, most of which we still suffer from today.

"Home Remedies from Weeds and Wild Flowers" gives you the information you need about many usually overlooked weeds and wildflowers; how to grow them, which parts to harvest and when, which remedies to make with them and what to use them for.

One man's weed is another man's wild flower
