Freebie flash! Fat, Haunting, Ideas, and more

As usual, I don’t vouch for these books, and none of them block text-to-speech access. As promotional titles, they may not be free for long. Note: these books are free in the USA: prices in other countries may vary.

    A tiny comment on this post:

    “Prime Members: $0.00” is not the same as “Kindle Price: $0.00” 😉

    Great blog, Mr. Calvin. I’ve been following you for a week now and enjoying your feed very much 🙂

    • Bufo Calvin Says:

      Thanks for writing, Arni!

      Welcome aboard, and thanks for the kind words!

      Yes, that’s correct. All of the ones I listed here had a purchase price of zero for US Kindle store customers when I wrote the post.

      When a book is free specifically to eligible Prime members, it is free to borrow…not to own. It’s very important that people are accessing the book’s product page from a Kindle device, and click a button that says “borrow” not “buy”. I’ve seen several people who bought multiple books thinking that they would be free for them…

      Thanks for pointing that out! Apparently, it isn’t being said enough… 🙂

      • Árni Viðar Björgvinsson Says:

        Ah, so they were actually free and not just Prime ‘free’ when you wrote the post?

        These freebies have a pretty quick turnaround 🙂

        Thanks for writing, Arni!

        Two things:

        First, the new KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) Select program (which is how independents get their books into the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library) also allows five days a month where a book can be offered for free. That’s the first time indies can make their books free in the Kindle store, by the way. Those days are selected by the publisher/author and they do not need to be contiguous…they can do one at a time. That means more books may be free for only one day.

        However, it’s also possible that your country is not set as the USA. I point out at the beginning of the posts that this is only accurate for customers in the USA. You can check that: go to

        http://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle

        Click

        Country Settings

        on the left. If you are a resident of the USA and that’s not the country shown, you can change it there.
