Self-Reliance, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, 4 customer reviews, 5 stars
Publisher: The Domino Project; Unabridged edition (May 25, 2011)

From Review:
A Q&A with Ralph Waldo Emerson
"For nearly 200 years, Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self-Reliance has been the preeminent book on independence, non-conformity, and trusting oneself. At The Domino Project, we believe that Emerson's words are just as relevant today as they were in 1841..."

From Product Description: "Redefining the classic essay, this modern edition of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s most famous work, Self-Reliance, includes self-reflections from both historical and contemporary luminaries. With quotes from the likes of Henry Ford and Helen Keller to modern-day thought leaders like Jesse Dylan, Steve Pressfield, and Milton Glaser, we're reminded of the relevance of Emerson’s powerful words today. Emerson’s words are timeless"

Fair Price
, by Laura Lond, 2 customer reviews, 5 stars

2 very short stories that have received good reviews about the writing.

Another free book today:
Sleep, by Infinite Ideas
No customer reviews.
This is the first in a series of very short books or booklets with "techniques to help deal with all types of persistent sleep problems"

CAVEAT:The author modestly says the ideas are 'brilliant' and straightforward, and the little books in the series are about $1 each, which is one way of doing one book's worth of content under several titles, with prices that total about $6.
  Essentially, you can try one for no cost, if interested in this.

If looking for highly-rated e-books under $1, here's a listing of those with highly-rated Kindle books first.

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.
