There are a number of free calendars currently, and they'll be included in the free-book listing later today.  The calendars vary in quality but I found most of the ones they preview on the product page pretty funny.

Cat Deck the Halls (Joe Grey Mysteries), by Shirley Rousseau Murphy, 17 customer reviews, 4.7 stars $0.99 (Link:

An odd book, this one is in the genre: Fiction/Mystery for cat lovers.  customers who read it seem delighted, so I thought I'd add it.

There is, coincidentally, a free Cat Cartoon-A-Day calendar today (Link:, and for those of you who prefer (or also enjoy) dogs, here's today's free Dog Cartoon-A-Day calendar also. (Link:

"...The plot cascades along as if running on tracks, which thriller fans won’t mind at all.  History buffs, the other half of the target audience, can still learn things, like the meaning of “grave dust.” A great ride" -- Don Crinklaw for Booklist

"Documenting the events leading up to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, John J. Miller's riveting historical thriller is packed with dynamic characters, rich period detail, and a chillingly sinister villain. " -- Amazon editor"

TEMPORARILY-Free Books:  Alerts from the Amazon Kindle forums - via the tireless "Happy Reader" Joyce, who is ever on the lookout on behalf of forum members.

  NOTE: The alerts are quoted from Joyce's collecting of mostly temporarily-free books.  They're *not* recommendations by anyone but are a popular, unfiltered daily set of forum release-alerts by Joyce, logged here for those who don't or can't make it to the forums.  The eBooks are often no longer free within days, sometimes, within hours.  Thanks to Joyce for gathering and organizing them for us.

Happy Reader "Joyce" has computer problems this morning and JML filled in for her.
I'll add Product Descriptions since there are only two for now.

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.
