LATEST DISCOUNTED Kindle books (some temporarily) forum thread:

TEMPORARILY Free-Book alerts from the Amazon Kindle forums - via the amazing "Happy Reader" Joyce, who is constantly on the lookout on behalf of forum members.

  NOTE: The alerts below are quoted as they appear in Joyce's collecting of newly and mostly temporarily-free books just released and are *not* books I've seen and are *not* recommendations by this blog -- this is a daily report of very popular forum alerts.   The eBooks will become no longer free within days, usually - sometimes, hours.  Thanks to Joyce for gathering and organizing all these for us.

Clockwork Fagin (Free Preview of a story from Steampunk!)
Author: Cory Doctorow
* Pre-Order for September 13 *

DESCRIPTION: Imagine an alternate universe where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Where scientists and schoolgirls, fair folk and Romans, intergalactic bandits, utopian revolutionaries, and intrepid orphans solve crimes, escape from monstrous predicaments, consult oracles, and hover over volcanoes in steam-powered airships. In Steampunk!, fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, embrace the genre's established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings as diverse as Appalachia, Ancient Rome, future Australia, and alternate California. Get a preview of the anthology by sampling one of these inventive tales for free-Cory Doctorow's "Clockwork Fagin," in which orphans use the puppet of a dead man to take control of their lives. '

  1. Andrys,

    Off (post) topic question.

    Is there a link on Kindle Books where one can make a suggestion of a title one would like to see turned into a Kindle edition? I've poked about and also tried googling a plausible string but come up with nothing. Ideas?

  2. Hi, Owen -
    On any book of interest to you at Amazon -- when you find it has no Kindle edition, check to the left just under the Product header. There's a box that lets you send a request to the publisher, for a Kindle edition. They've been known to go ahead with one after getting a number of requests for this.

    Didn't get a Kobo yet ? I understanding pricing of books may be a consideration too.

  3. Hi Andrys,

    In reverse order - no, no Kobo Touch yet though I think I've been pest enough that one may be coming late next month as a (perhaps not so surprise) birthday gift. Anyway, I know not to spend money I just earned on an art job on a Kobo ;-)

    Thanks for the heads-up. How did I miss that? I'll go suggest the title (an old gem by Flannery O'Connor).

    And why am I buying/or getting free Kindle Books (perhaps implied question)? Because right now I am using Kindle for PC and later with knowledge gained, I will be able to easily convert titles to Kobo. Makes shopping better because I can price compare and get titles that one or the other doesn't have.

    Happy reading...

  4. For your situation, sounds wise to ME, Owen.

    I love that no one needs a Kindle to read Kindle books, despite all the focus of some others on 'proprietary' formats.

    Again, let us know how it goes.


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.
