It’s my birthday…but I’m giving you the presents
February 12th is my birthday, along with
- Charles Darwin
- Abraham Lincoln
- Cotton Mather
- George Meredith
- R.F. Delderfield
- Judy Blume
- Darren Aronofsky
among many others (I’ve tried to stick mostly with writers in this listing).
I decided I wanted to celebrate by giving you something.
After all, you readers (and especially the subscribers…hello, subscribers!) give me so much.
Part of KDP Select (the program through which uses of Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing make books available for eligible Prime members to borrow through the KOLL…Kindle Owners’ Lending Library) is the ability to make books free for five days (they need not be consecutive) in a ninety-day period.
I’m going to do that with all of my books in the KOLL, except for my latest, Love Your Kindle Fire: The ILMK Guide to Amazon’s Entertablet. Sales have fallen off a cliff on that one this month, but I think there may be a post-Valentine’s Day bump. Besides, I need some sort of control group.
Please check that a title is free for you before buying it.
I have asked Amazon to make them free on February 12, but I can’t say exactly when it will happen. I think they will also only be free to customers in the USA.
So, you can click on the titles before, but please make sure it is free when you click the 1-click buy button.
This one combines three of the below into one volume:
* ILMK! (I Love My Kindle): Being an Appreciation of Amazon’s E-Book Reader, with Tips, Explanations, and Humor
* Free Books for Your Kindle
* Frequently Asked Kindle Questions
You may or may not prefer it as one volume. You can do it either way…or both.:)
This has some fun stuff…and other things that are out of date. If you want The Happy Little Bookworm, this one has it.
This one has some value for locating sites, although it isn’t up to date…it doesn’t discuss the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (KOLL), for example.
Again, somewhat outdated…
This is the first 101 posts in this blog. I did 101 posts so I wouldn’t cut off Doctor Watson’s Blog: A Kindle Abandoned (which is a four-part story).
Remember, double-check that they are free to make sure before buying.
