Free Kindle Books 11-7-13

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.

Blue Scare
John F. Kennedy has died. Derek and Ollie of the Department of Internal Justice get the call to finish something that had started almost fifty years ago on November 22nd 1963. The conspiracy to assassinate JFK had failed and the rogue agencies within the government behind it have long been scattered to the wind. Suddenly the one man Derek and the Department have been looking for re-surfaces, the man from the grassy knoll. With a stout determination, he and his partner of fifteen years are on their way to confront the assassin who almost changed history forever, but even now he may prove to be too skilled and dangerous to apprehend.

[#82 - been free before - I have not read it.]

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.
