Free Kindle Books 11-9-13

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.

What Zombies Fear
When Victor Tookes went to work that beautiful spring day, he never expected to see a man eaten alive in the street in front of his office. After convincing himself that they really were zombies, he makes a trip from his house in Pennsylvania to his family home in Virginia, battling zombies all the way. His three and a half year old son was bitten on the leg, but doesn't turn into a zombie. Instead, he turns into something more than human.

Victor quickly discovers that everything he knew about zombies was wrong. Not all of them were mindless, uncoordinated, rotting ghouls; some of them were bigger, faster, stronger or smarter than when they were human.

A small percentage of humans are genetically immune to the parasite. Instead of turning these humans into mindless shamblers, they gain enhanced abilities. These new abilities will be pushed to their limits in their quest to carve out a safe haven to call home.

[#24. Other books in this series have been free, but I have yet to read any of them. The premise has promise, even if it is pretty far fetched.]

Allied: First Contact
Awakened by a violent storm one morning, Ethan is joined by Cara, his attractive neighbor. They evacuate their apartment building, only to be greeted by absolute chaos outside. Violent hurricane winds and rain blow through the town, the air is freezing cold, and the days and nights seem to shorten into mere hours. They embark on an incredible adventure as they find out what is causing these bizarre events.

In a world where humans and governments seem helpless to stop the forces of destruction, the impossible occurs. This is a gripping story with twists and turns of survival in chaos, and the human instinct to bond together in times of crisis.

"Allied: First Contact" is a short story of 8700 words in length or approximately 30 pages. It is the prequel to an upcoming full-length novel.

[#35 - neither the author's summary nor the single 5-star review is a lot of help in determining whether this short story is worth taking a look at.]

The Stone Man - A Science Fiction Horror Novel

Nobody knew where it came from.

Nobody knew why it came.

Even so, for two-bit (and antisocial) reporter Andy Pointer, the appearance in his city of a man made of moving stone meant the scoop of a lifetime. He would soon learn that The Stone Man was much more--and much worse--than that.

This is Andy's account of everything that came afterwards, and the people that were lost along the way; of the terrible price that he, and the rest of his country, had to pay.

The destruction. The visions. The dying.

PALEO COMFORT FOODS Cookbook | Super Quick & Easy, Gluten-Free Paleo Comfort Food Recipes
The Paleo diet is the latest food craze to sweep the globe. And it is no surprise that it has become so popular! With 101 of our happy Cook favorites for you to experiment with, enjoy and share, you will see why!

Because Paleo not a “diet” per se; if there's one thing that all the fad diets in the last few decades have taught us, it's that “diets” don't work. The idea of temporarily depriving yourself of certain foods until you reach a weight goal has been shown to be counterproductive. Goals are met, but soon after the pent up urge to eat the “forbidden fruit” overcomes us and before we know it we're back where we started. It's a vicious cycle.

Which is good. If you're a diet foods company!

We Need To Get back To The Way Things Were ‘Meant’ To Be

The paleo diet endeavours to get us to eat only those foods which our bodies are “meant” to eat. The things early humans ate when our race was not surrounded by heaps of plastic processed foods and civilization was still in its infancy. The "Real-Food" diet would be another way to describe it.

Does this mean that we forsake our comforts and tasty menus, and eat only boring, unappetizing dishes for the sake of our health?

Our overwhelming answer is NO WAY!

How about if we could enjoy wonderful, comforting, delicious meals that truly satisfy our body and tastebuds all at once, and utilise Paleo guidelines (no grains, no gluten, no legumes, no dairy).

Jump in and enjoy the health benefits, natural weight loss, and sustained feel-good factor of the "Real Food" diet with our delightful PALEO COMFORT FOODS Cookbook - Super Quick & Easy, Gluten-Free Paleo Comfort Food Recipes.

In the book we cover everything from The Basics, Spice Mixes and Marinades, through to beautifully sumptuous Meat Dishes, Sides and Desserts (plus a whole lot more!). A full arsenal of ready to use awesome recipes that cannot fail to delight.
