Free Kindle Books 11-2-13

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.

Diary of an Assassin

Tired of a life of violence, hitman Isaac Rhett is ready to retire after one last assignment. But the assignment turns out to be a trap and pits him against the deadliest assassin in the world, Gustav Fabrice.


Gustav is cunning, ferocious, and insane. Without the inhibitions a person would feel against extreme violence, Gustav is on a rampage with the death of Isaac Rhett as his only goal. A single police officer from Interpol is the only witness to the monster that's been let loose on society and attempts to track him down before Gustav carries out his mission.


Rhett's mark turns out to be a congresswoman with no known enemies. Rhett flees with her with Gustav on their heels. But Rhett knows you cannot escape a man like Gustav. At some point, they will have to fight. But there is only one way that Rhett knows to stop Gustav... you must let him kill you first.


Victor Methos is the author of over twenty-five novels including the White Angel Murder and Superhero, both Kindle Top 100 smash hits. His novels have sold nearly half a million copies worldwide.

Elisha's Bones (A Jack Hawthorne Adventure Book #1)
Every year, professor of antiquities Jack Hawthorne looks forward to the winter break as a time to hide away from his responsibilities. Even if just for a week or two. But this year, his plans are derailed when he's offered almost a blank check from a man chasing a rumor.

Billionaire Gordon Reese thinks he knows where the bones of the prophet Elisha are--bones that in the Old Testament brought the dead back to life. A born skeptic, Jack doesn't think much of the assignment but he could use the money, so he takes the first step on a chase for the legendary bones that will take him to the very ends of the earth. But he's not alone. Joined with a fiery colleague, Esperanza Habilla, they soon discover clues to a shadowy organization whose long-held secrets have been protected . . . at all costs. As their lives are threatened again and again, the real race is to uncover the truth before those chasing them hunt them down.

Paleo Breakfasts: The Complete Guide to Paleo in the Morning (Every Day Recipes)
The Paleo program was inspired by the diet of cavemen and it could be considered one of the oldest nutritional regimes around. The diet consists of the food that was consumed in the Paleolithic era, before the agricultural revolution that turned cavemen from hunters and gatherers to farmers. The Paleo program is even more important when it comes to the first meal of the day. Although cavemen probably had to hunt their first meal of the day down, you can quickly whip something up in the kitchen to start your day off on the right foot.

Since breakfast dictates the rest of the day, the Every Day Paleo Breakfast Recipes book aims to help those who are unfamiliar with the Paleo program learn about the history, benefits, and concerns surrounding the Paleo program while coming up with new and tasty recipes for those who are currently on the Paleo diet but need new ideas.

Sold Out
Author Stan R. Mitchell writes a tight sniper/CIA thriller in his second novel Sold Out, which plunges readers into a deep, dark conspiracy and should delight fans of authors Vince Flynn, Stephen Hunter, and Lee Child.

Mitchell's first book (Little Man, and the Dixon County War) climbed as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List, and his fans are cheering his second book as an even tighter, epic story that shows what happens when free speech slams into the messy realities of national security.

Blood flows early and often in this story that will keep you riveted until the very end.

Book Description:

Nick Woods used to be one of our country's greatest snipers. A Marine who completed a bloody, top-secret mission behind enemy lines years ago, he now just wants to live in peace with his wife.

But Nick is about to get caught in a grand conspiracy between a senior investigative reporter and a shadowy, CIA group.

After said reporter, Allen Green, breaks the details of Nick's story -- blowing the top off America's national security -- both Nick and Allen find themselves in the sights of a CIA hunter-killer group.

This CIA group breaks the law and kills at will, and they'll stop at nothing to take down Nick Woods and the reporter who published the earth-shattering story he'd been chasing for years.

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.

Vivid narrative of tank combat on the brutal Eastern Front during World War II
Describes clashes between German Tigers and Soviet T-34s
Covers the German invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Stalingrad, Kursk, and more
Contains numerous firsthand accounts
