No free books noted yet, and I'm focusing later today on sorting out info on the somewhat confusing assortment of new e-Ink Kindles and new features, since I wasn't here last night. In the meantime, we do have answers to some of the questions that have come up.
Note: There have been quite a few Comments and Questions/Answers between those commenting to the New-Kindles posts the last two days. I've answered with what I know so far, while others have chimed in with interesting information. If you want to read about the things that have been brought up, see:

LATEST DISCOUNTED Kindle books (some temporarily) forum thread:
Forum-thread starter RandomizeME includes a caution that it's not a book promotion thread for authors or for posts about indies or free books either. "The thread is for discounts and price drops that many readers, especially Emily Bronte], find from publishers."
