Here are some good $1 and less Kindle Books –
- A 1 cent story – Stroke of Midnight by Jordan Castillo Price. Part of the PsyCop Series.
- A Long Way from Disney by Seth Harwood for $1. It’s going up the charts because the author has a popular podcast and has asked his listeners to all buy the book on the same day. Well reviewed but it might all be his podcast listeners.
- Kindle Store Harlequin list with 10 free Harlequin books (these have been free for a long time so they’re NOT new) and 30 or so Harlequin books for $1.
- The Complete Works of O’Henry for $1 – Not verified i.e. this may or may not include all his short stories.
- The Essential Sir Walter Scott Collection – just $1 and includes Ivanhoe, Waverley, Rob Roy, and The Lady of the Lake.
- Lilith by George McDonald – Exceptionally well reviewed.
Some free book offers from around the web –
- Free book/story from Samhain in PDF format – One More Miracle by Linda Winfree. The Samhellion blog has 3 more freebies (all in PDF format).
- Simon & Schuster have a free book download, Wake by Lisa McMann. It can’t be read on the Kindle but it can be read on your PC using Adobe Digital Editions.
- Get Refuge of Delayed Souls – Vol 1 free at Smashwords when you use coupon code: TC44V. Courtesy MobileRead.
- I Was Just Dead by Edo Segal – Free book and free audio book. It’s a tale of augmented reality.
Quick Thoughts on the Scattered Nature of Free Books
It took me over an hour to find all these books. It’d really help if –
- Different Publishers banded together and picked one store and made all their free offers available there. It doesn’t even matter if it’s the Kindle Store or not as long as the books are available in Kindle format.
- There were no Adobe Digital Editions restrictions on free books (like the Simon & Schuster offer) – It leaves out Kindle owners. Not cool.
- Amazon started keeping their Big Deals on Kindle page updated.
- Year-End Deals in Books at Amazon included a section for Kindle Books. Perhaps that’s asking too much given ebooks are already so cheap.
