Free and low-cost books reminder 2/12/10

Well, this is not exactly the kind of free book that most would be looking for, but Amazon has announced that The Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2011, and Economic Report of the President are both available now as free wireless downloads in Amazon's Kindle Store.   $0.00

I haven't lept at this offering at this time as it isn't likely to raise my sense of well-being to read it ;-), but there it is.  And am I reading something into Amazon's recommending to me Crossing the Gates of Alaska or Devotions for Lent when looking at the page for this particular "product"?

Another book that's gone on the $0.00 list temporarily is what looks to be a rather glib (and even admirers say 'redundant') book, which at $12.95 has had 24 reviews and an average rating of 4-1/2 stars.
  The title is Love Yourself and Let the Other Person Have It Your Way, by Lawrence Crane and Lester Levenson, with a sales ranking of #4 in the Kindle store.  I'm not recommending it, just letting people know it's being offered for $0.00 for probably a short while and that people who paid for it seem to have liked it.

The weekend reminder:
  As ever, here is the ongoing set of links for various Searches for free or low-cost Kindle-compatible books.
  If you use the "2.b" link there for finding newest non-classics, you can see the latest non-classic and non-public-domain ones coming onto the free listings.  This lets you find them whenever you decide to call up the Free & Low Cost Books page.
  You can also just bookmark that page while there, to make that easier. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
