Free Kindle books Sat. Feb 11 -- 232 chosen by forum members from 500+ listed .

FREE KINDLE BOOKS from Joyce and Annie B's daily forum threads of free Kindle book alerts and forumner recommendations.

500+ newly and temporarily free Kindle books for Sat., 2/11/12.
232 suggestions for consideration, in listings by forum members
  plus a link to 4 more forum pages of them.

I'll be drawing attention to the Kindle forum members' recommendations, which are done daily, and this will let you know where to find them. I plan to do that when there's time.
  Some of these are free for only a few hours or a few days, others maybe two weeks.

 Double-check the prices always.

THIS BLOG ARTICLE CONSISTS OF LISTS OF BOOKS SELECTED BY FORUM MEMBERS for themselves and posted so that others can see what was found to be interesting to them, out of over 500+ book titles.

  Lists by forum members are compiled from the several forum postings they make while plowing through the titles -- All their recommendations are listed together under their forum names so we can easily see sets by each in these public forum threads.
  I also include some of the duplicated picks, as they give a sense of what strikes people in general, as worth picking up.
 If a book is free for only ONE day and is no longer free, let me know and I'll strike it off the list for today.

  Listing-types and some genre identification
If you can see that some forum members choose the types of books you like, that'll help, and if you can see that any choose the types of books you may not find as interesting, that should help too!

  Many also specify the genre involved, which is very helpful.
  This approach has been useful for some readers, when I have the time to do them.
  Kindle-Edition subscribers (thank you for the support) should use their computers at the web page to use these links, at Link:

  MORE... ( If you are reading this from the main blog page, the links and discussion of temporarily newly-free books and discounted-book forum-alerts link(s) are on the 2nd page, to load the main page more quickly and so that those wanting to go through the details can do so by: Clicking on "MORE" just below)

Again, some are free for only a few hours, some for a day or 5, so double-check each one for price. (Watch out for 'Prime' $0.00 price for *borrowing* as it looks like a purchase price and is bigger than the normal pricing, which of course as confused people.)

eReaderiq has 12+ pages of new offerings this morning. I was surprised that I found so little of it actually of interest. For those of you following the Stolen Cookbooks & Other Scams thread, keep your eyes out for a couple by Nathan Murphy this morning.
Make Fantastic and Unique Chocolate Desserts for the Holidays or Special Occasions is on offer today along with one other of his.
  Something about it made me take a look at his author page - 10 books on one of the biggest disparities of subject matter I've seen

I took my time browsing kinlib this morning but only came up with 5.  There were a couple of others that looked promising at first glance, but the proofreading errors in the "look inside" were too off-putting; I was afraid I'd be gnashing my teeth the whole time reading.

Pandora Park - children's adventure - by Piers Anthony - Mark in N.Y and Kelsie in China both discover a mysterious path leading to a magical forest.
Puddle of Love - suspense - Jesse Wallace's dilemma is that he knows too much; he knows all the deepest, darkest secrets in the little town of Briley. But he can't say a single word at all, because he's dead, and he's stuck on the other side.
Shadowland - fantasy - On the night of midwinter's eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark Ages and a tale from his youth.
The Hell Screen (A Sugawara Akitada Novel) - historical mystery - Set in 11th-century Japan and featuring government official and sometime-detective Akitada Sugawara.
The Prisoners of Gender - romance - A princess and her guardian exchange bodies due to a botched magic enchantment. (I must confess "bawdy, spicy romance" in the prod. descr. caught my eye...)

Scream Catcher
The Gathering Storm: The truth can set you free. It can also kill you. (Legacy Series)
Montfort The Founder of Parliament The Early Years 1229 to 1243

River Rising (thriller)
Montfort The Founder of Parliament The Early Years 1229 to 1243 (hist fiction)

Keep Mama Dead (fantasy/horror/zombies)

By angelmum3
Railroad Man Mickey's job with the railroad is the best gig going in north Georgia in 1933. He's tall, dark, and handsome and has it made in the shade. Mickey found his true love at an early age and dreams of the perfect life they will share. He roams the speakeasies and clip joints of Atlanta, looking snazzy and ready for some action. The women call him Killer. He seeks the exotic creatures of the city and the wonders they hold. Forty-five years later, Mick wonders what happened. (I also liked the reviewer who is a verified purchaser, and my grandfather was a railroad man)

Olga - A Daughter's Tale A new author's first book written as the result of genealogical research into her mother's past and her family. Based on a true story 'Olga - A Daughter's Tale' is a family saga about love, heritage, culture, identity and belonging with an epic feel - from Jamaica to England amidst World War II.Written in the form of diary entries and letters, it is about the cruelty, revenge and jealousy inflicted on an innocent young woman and about her moral courage, dignity, resilience and, in particular, love. It is the story of a remarkable woman who, because of circumstances, made a choice which resulted in her losing contact with her beloved family in Jamaica until nearly half a century later when her daughter discovered her mother's past (this has 23 reviews in 4* or 5* It is reminding me of the TV show - "Who Do You Think You Are? NBC show celebrities go thru their genealogy)

Stranger Riding By  Who wanted Westerns? This appears to be a short story The review says "Carol Buchanan's story of a little boy's suspicion of a stranger who visits his home is definitely one to remember. Little did he or his mother know that the man who stopped for a meal was Harry Longabaugh, the Sundance Kid. (The boy was Carol Buchanan's father.) The author's lyrical prose makes the reader want more."

Montfort The Founder of Parliament The Early Years 1229 to 1243  Again 14 reviews (and a paperback version) helps make this history book intriguing to me! Simon de Montfort, the founder of England's Parliament, was the greatest knight and foremost military strategist of his time. Friend of Saint Louis, thorn in the side of the Plantagenets, he was chosen Viceroy by Prince Richard's crusaders and the Christian lords of Palestine. He served as Senechal of France for King Louis' heir, but rejected the Crown of England, championing instead the New Millennium of democracy preached by Dominican and Franciscan friars
(warning this is 1st in a series? looking under at the customers who bought this also bought, and there are 3 other Montfort books, this is the only one free - and who knows for how long)

Here's to Not Catching Our Hair on Fire: An Absent-Minded Tale of Life with Giftedness and Attention Deficit - Oh Look! A Chicken! This author seems to have quite a blog following - (paperback version also) "Did you know that if you forget to pay a speeding ticket you WILL get arrested-in front of your kids, the neighbors-the dog-and anyone else who happens to be there? True story. And the thing is, Stacey Turis has a million of them, and she imparts these and other nuggets of wisdom to offer others suffering from ADHD some hope in knowing that they are not alone."

Constitution AL Here's a Children's history/fiction book that sounds cute - Ever wonder what really happened at the Constitutional Convention? Join Aloisius Spider and his friends (the Snail, Earthworm, Grasshopper, etc.) as they battle the sinister Triple Alliance. Their foe's intention is to sabotage the Convention -- and end democracy in America! (our school does unit on the Constitutional Convention - trying to get kids to understand what life must've been like... this may bring more humor, and open more doors to other conversation, and kick start some writing as well!)

Montfort The Founder of Parliament The Early Years 1229 to 1243 - went and clicked on the 1* review - had 8 comments - worth the read! ;-)

I STOPPED THERE, as I was on Message Thread page 3 only and there are 7
pages of suggestions, and many tend to be duplicates after 200+ listed.

I've sifted out and gathered several sublistings under each name for who made them and there are over 230 book titles included here (a few are duplicates)

To continue on with the forum thread directly (pjf starts several listings at that point), go to kfree0211 to get the other 4 pages of forumners listing what they felt looked interesting.

There is enough here that I won't go do a link for Discounted books today.

But there is always the Kindle Daily Deal for the day, so check that out.

Questions & feedback are welcome in the Comment areas (tho' spam is deleted). Thanks!


  1. I subscribe to "a Kindle World Blog" via Amazin to read it on my Kindle. I am extremely dissapointed thst links to supposedly free ebooks open a web page on my kindle with text too small to see without a microscope! These links should (in the kindle version) take me to a listing on the kindle storefront , not a web page!

  2. Anonymous. Thanks for subscribing. I mention on the Free Book alert blog entries that Kindle Edition Subscribers, who get the last 25 blog articles, on an edition, should do the links from a computer.

    Having said that though, it's Amazon who decides where the links go, and they take you to a modified web-site for mobile devices and not to the Kindle store. I can't do anything about it, unfortunately.

    What I should point out is that once you're on the page of TINY print (agreed!) for an item, you should press Menu and then "Article Mode" to read the info.

    In article mode, you can't choose to buy or interact, but once out of Article mode and back to Web Mode (you can use Menu to get back to Web Mode), you can opt to press a button to get a free sample (from which you can buy the book if you like the sample) or to buy it for $0.00 if the current pricing is still free.

    Now, with a Kindle Touch, this is easy.

    With the Kindle Keyboard, you get a ZOOM box that you can click on and it enlarges that boxed section. Good for getting a sample. Awkward. But you still do have that 'Article Mode' for reading.

    With the Kindle Touch, you can pinch-zoom the entire page of text and see it larger but then you do need to scroll around. With this, you also get 'Article Mode' and would use pinch-zoom to find the sample box if wanted, etc.

    Let me know if any of this helps.


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.

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.
