So when an art deal she brokered between clients turns suspicious, it’s up to Lucie to uncover the truth. She might not know the difference between Monet and Manet, but Rizzos are no strangers to jail time—and Lucie refuses to be someone’s prison bitch.
Unless that someone is a tall, blond and Irish cop. Detective Tim O’Brien might be on the wrong side of the law by Rizzo standards, but everything about him is oh-so-right. He’s not shy about making Lucie feel wanted, mafia ties and all. Even joining her crack—or crackpot—team on the trail of two paintings with equally shady origins.

Being jobless and divorced at age forty-five is bad enough. But when Val Fremden’s only friend in the world ends up dead, it’s hard not to think the world’s out to get her.
Maybe it is….
The sugar-white sands of St. Pete Beach attract weirdos like mosquitoes to a bug zapper. So when the will of Val’s friend is announced in the paper, loonies scramble out of their beach shacks vying for a piece of the leftover pie.
Determined to find her friend’s true heir, Val reluctantly turns to three crackpots for help – a drunk, a redneck, and a snarky beach bum. Working at odds with each other, their bumbling investigation attracts the attention of a hot cop. He quickly gets into the fray and under Val’s skin. Whether it’s in a good way or bad only time will tell.

Often compared by readers to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, Margaret Lashley’s character, Val Fremden, is a bit older, a tad more jaded, and a ton more experienced in big-time failure. Life’s been tough for Val. Still, she always manages to find her way with sardonic humor and an intrepid spirit. A gin and tonic now and then helps, too.
Life’s a beach and then you die. If you’re ready for a good laugh and a great mystery, check out Glad One and its crazy cast of characters today!

| A School Inspector Calls: “OfsDead!” (Miss Clover Lightfoot Murder Mystery Book 1)|
by Rosie Cavendish
$0.00, 132 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (9 reviews), #243 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Cozy
The year is 1996 and the quietly exceptional Miss Clover Lightfoot is terribly behind with her preparations for the opening performance of the school play, which must take place while the school is being inspected; an inspection that will result in murder. Only Miss Lightfoot’s finely-honed teaching abilities, the support of her colleagues and Pudding, the class rabbit, can help her to solve the crime and save the day.
(No fictional children or bunny rabbits were harmed in the writing of this book)
"Clover watched the rest of the show with an air of mild detachment. She observed that the children’s interpretation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream had been rather overtaken by the idea that people could be turned into donkeys. There was a common agreement in the small group of boys responsible for the scene, that many, if not all, of the challenges faced by Oberon, King of the Fairies, could be laid to rest by the wholesale transformation of inconvenient persons into mules. This treatment was summarily applied to all the principal characters of the play until a triumphant Oberon found himself the owner of a small herd. The only disadvantage in this scenario for Oberon was that the donkeys’ notorious stubbornness required him to discipline them by unceremoniously kicking them on their rear ends. This, the boys had explained to Clover, was poetic justice that functioned on the much-discussed ‘many levels of meaning’ that she had urged them to explore."

Usually the woods near her apartment are friendly. But when Christa Heckertt is stuck in a deserted cellar there, they are anything but. Christa ends up there not long after interrupting an intruder who tried to steal parts from the computers her Iowa City fourth-grade class won in the mayor's competition.
Officer Kirk Reynolds was called from a drug surveillance to investigate the attempted burglary at Buckingham Elementary School. That throws Christa and Kirk together. He wants enough evidence to convict a drug dealer who sells to kids and Christa who wants to keep her students safe and get control of her life again. The thieves who want the newly won computers will stop at nothing. They'll kidnap, run cars off the road, steal, and threaten worse.
Christa and Kirk's attraction to each other is growing, but they are too stubborn to admit it. Will it get in the way as they try to decipher an encoded file and learn what the bad guys want and why it's worth killing to get it? On Halloween eve, Christa is kidnapped by a drug dealer who wants to use her as leverage to get what he wants. Will she escape in time to work with Kirk to keep the dealer from making that delivery and find out who his partners are? Can she and Kirk trust the right people--and each other?

by Alannah Foley

Scott Chevalier - part campervan-surfer, part Crocodile Dundee - gets a dose of the Agatha Christies in this light mystery series…
Book 1 in the Campervan Bushman Mystery Series
Ex-surf champ and model, Scott Chevalier, isn't just a pretty face!
With an enviable campervan-surfie lifestyle, and a handful of impressive bush skills learnt from his grandfather, producer Frank Buckler sees great potential in the young Aussie and hires him to host a British TV show called The Campervan Bushman.
Unfortunately, things don't start out too well when Scott arrives on location in England. When things hit rock bottom and the director dies, no one suspects it could be anything but an accident – at least not to start with. But as the evidence begins to mount, Scott realises that the cold English climate isn't the only killer around.
Each book in the Campervan Bushman series is a light cosy-style mystery with an edge of humour, a sense of adventure, and a hint of romance.
INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR
Q: What makes the Campervan Bushman series special?
A: Scott Chevalier may have a typical Aussie laid-back attitude to life, but he's just as capable of springing into action when trouble strikes! He's lived his life in two worlds. He's been a surf champ who's enjoyed travelling round in his campervan, but he's also spent time with his grandfather in the bush and learnt a good handful of survival skills. Just as well! Because some of these come in handy as the mysteries unravel.
Although Scott's the main character, Penny and Red, his sidekick crew filming the Campervan Bushman TV show, all work together to try and solve the puzzling events that take place. So the series is built around a trio rather than a lone wolf amateur sleuth.
Q: Who is likely to enjoy the books?
A: The mysteries are lighter than your average 'cosy', but if you love books in the genre, and the sound of Scott's easy-going yet adventurous character appeals, then you should definitely give the series a whirl.
A romantic thread runs through the series, but there are no sex scenes. So, coupled with only mild expletive usage, the stories would also be suitable for late teen/young adult audiences.
Note: UK terminology & some light Aussie slang is used throughout the series.
Q: What order should the books be read in?
A: Here is the suggested order:
Book 1 – Killer Climate
Book 2 – Deathbed of Roses
Book 3 – Criminal Intent
You can also snag WIPEOUT, the series prequel story, from a link inside the book.
Q: So, why should readers give these books a try?
A: Not only is Scott's world is a fascinating one, but a nice blend of curiosity, adventure, humour and romance forms an engaging backdrop to the mysteries in the series.
There's plenty of light-hearted banter between Scott and Red (who's a techie, and loves to skulk about & investigate things despite being afraid of his own shadow most of the time), and a romantic interest in Penny (who's the trio's voice of reason & logic, and resilient in the face of certain events that come her way).
Top that off with a brand new location for each book as the crew move on to film the next episode of the Campervan Bushman TV show, and you're bound to stay entertained.
So why not scroll up, hit BUY NOW and join Scott & the crew TODAY!?

Friendship can be murder!
Review: “…the heroine is completely without morals…You really should not like her, but you find yourself wishing her every success in her increasingly bizarre schemes and personal entanglements”
Spoilt society girl Cressida Barker-Powell wants to murder her interfering mother-in-law. She plans the perfect murder but when she arrives at the scene, she finds the old woman already dead. Soon it becomes clear that her Hitchcock-Movie-loving best pal, Monica, has carried out the deed for her! Taking the murder-switch idea from their favourite Hitchcock movie, Cressida decides the only real way to show her gratitude is by killing off Monica’s philandering husband and his bimbo girlfriend. Monica should appreciate the idea of swapping murders. That’s what she wants, right?
Cressida quickly discovers this was not what her friend had in mind, and a devastated Monica is now hell-bent on revenge. Which means their friendship is definitely over. Isn’t it?
Buy Criss Cross by Caron Allan now for a dark, humorous tale of murder, revenge and choosing the right outfit for a dastardly deed!
A ‘taster’ for you:
I was actually going quite fast by the time I hit him. He, with the usual arrogance of the pedestrian these days, had assumed I would simply stop when I got to him, and he just stepped into the road and began to cross without actually bothering to check if it was safe. As I reached him, he was still ambling across the road and clearly wasn’t about to hurry himself. I think he may have even seen me, as he glanced around at the very last nanosecond with suddenly frightened awareness, and there was something–some little look on his face–no, not even on his face, it was just the strangest suggestion of a shade in his eyes, the little lines between his brows contracting. It was a look that said, ‘I always knew she hated me,’ followed by a sudden realisation of what was about to happen and a strong impression that he suddenly thought, ‘oh crap!’
But then he bumped up in the air and over the top of the car. I was doing quite a speed and of course, it’s downhill and on a slight bend at that point–not at all a good place to cross really—and I saw him in my mirror, almost in slow-motion, as his head whacked down on the boot and then he hit the tarmac behind me with a strange flomping sound I could hear even though the window was up and Michael Bublé was blaring out of the speakers.

Why watch TV when you can read the first seven episodes of The Klumps Mysteries, Season One?
The Klumps Mysteries centers on a bumbling small town police force, led by inebriated, over educated, but not too smart Commissioner Don Mettler-Klump.
They like to eat. They like to sleep. Sometimes their guns fire for no apparent reason. And every once in a while they find a crime that needs solving. Murder, theft, missing pets, food poisoning. It's all in a day's work.
This volume includes the first seven episodes. The eighth and final episode will be released separately.
Episode One – “Murder at the Diner”
When a body is found behind a diner, inexperienced and hard drinking Police Commissioner Don Klump has his first murder case. He and his team explore the treacherous underbelly of the town.
Is it the dog walker? The victim's girlfriend? Or someone even closer to him?
Episode Two – “The Painting”
When a painting disappears from a local museum, an inebriated Don Klump makes finding it a department priority. The investigation takes an ominous turn when someone kills the curator.
Who stole the painting? Why? The Klumps brave the seedy world of art to find out.
Episode Three – “The Mole”
A suspect is murdered and evidence goes missing. A cop car is damaged. Worst of all, the Klumps suspect one of their own is responsible.
Is it the forensics assistant? The reporter who is hellbent on bringing down the department? And who is the mysterious woman pulling the strings?
Episode Four – “The Warehouse”
Deputy Commissioner Libby Klump makes a gruesome discovery while looking for a lost pet. Meanwhile, Don Klump and the rest of the police department hunt for a killer nurse after the Medical Examiner discovers that poison played a role in a disgraced officer's death. They continue investigating the mole. Don and Libby can't help thinking that these and their prior cases are related.
Episode Five – “Counting the Bodies”
The warehouse investigation continues.
With the crime rate rising faster than gas prices, the Klumps face off with the Town Council about the police budget. Deputy Chalmers must brave Methton alone while ghost-fearing Tom is put in charge of exhuming the body of a suspected murder victim.
Meanwhile, time runs short for two small girls.
What can possibly go wrong?

In the meantime, Don Klump and his team race to find Travis Quinton, prime suspect in two murders and child kidnapping.
Episode Seven – “Follow the Scent”
Libby takes charge of the police department as evidence is destroyed. Her husband and Commissioner is missing and may have been abducted, unless he's lying drunk in a ditch somewhere or with another woman. He better not be.
Deputies Lucus and Tom close in on the Ice Queen when they discover the identity of her right hand man.
Episode Eight – “Revelations” COMING January 21, 2014

Ryan suspects the church is a scam and holds little hope of his client's sister returning. So he gives the job to his assistant - the feisty and street sharp Carly.
But before long he is drawn into the cult’s world of beautiful people, high rollers, bent cops, Russian fixers, stolen guns and a politician with a sinister secret. And as he digs deeper, Ryan discovers the 'Hand of Darkness' can reach everywhere...
DEAD OF WINTER
Christmas Eve. While the rest of London is celebrating, Private Investigator Ryan Kyd is drowning his sorrows in his local pub. On his way back to the office to crash out on the sofa, he sees a woman being mugged in the street.
Her handbag has been stolen - and it contains a priceless necklace that she has borrowed from the auction house where she works. If she can’t get it back she faces not only losing her job, but a jail sentence as well.
Gallantly, Ryan Kyd comes to her rescue. But he soon regrets his decision. Nothing about the case is what it seems…
Can he solve the mystery of the missing necklace? Or will he end up among the Dead of Winter?

San Cassimally reunites detective Sherlock Holmes and the ingenious Irene Adler in a series of seven riveting mysteries. But the pair doesn’t always work in unison.
Holmes, constrained by the rule of law, must rely on his observational skills, logic, and scientific knowledge to crack each case. Adler, working in a less official capacity, is not beneath using unconventional tactics. The result is the classic banter that Holmes fans have enjoyed for decades.
In the investigator’s latest thrilling adventures, Holmes has to take action when he fears that Adler plans to wreak dire vengeance on an evil politician. What follows is a two-pronged race to find answers as the two investigate cases of murder, corruption, injustice, and supernatural manifestations.
In more than just a game of cat and mouse, the dynamic investigators come together to explore the Victorian era’s darker side as they investigate cases of child exploitation by nobility and take a stand for those who cannot defend themselves.
While Adler’s resourcefulness and ingenuity prepare her for almost every situation, she isn’t ready for the painful truth about Mycroft Holmes as she investigates the death of a young man.
Following the compelling Irene Adler Trilogy, Cassimally’s latest page-turning mysteries give Sherlock Holmes fans another reason to celebrate the intriguing duo.

LAPD cop Kate Sexton is back in Hollywood after taking a much needed vacation with her canine partner, Bernie.
Hollywood Games is a puzzle that begins with a tough but vulnerable cop trying to put her life back together. Add in a hyperactive canine partner who’s already sired a love-puppy named Bubba, a new homicide partner who is allergic to dead bodies, and Kate’s meddling best friends, Natalie and Mo, who think they’re the world’s greatest private detectives.
The puzzle pieces are scattered when a high-profile realtor is found murdered, floating in his hot tub, and his partner looks good for the crime. But Kate isn’t convinced and works the case until she realizes the killing might have ties to the victim’s many love interests and the largest gang in Hollywood.

A Jack Cubera Novel
Retired PI Jack Cubera just wants to drink beer, fish the flats, and live the simple life of a full-time boat bum. One problem: he’s just discovered his old nemesis—the Key’s most notorious real estate developer—floating tits-up in a weenie bikini in the Islamorada backwaters, landing him high on the suspect list. To clear his name, Jack investigates the curious demise and soon discovers the developer’s most outrageous development to date, Coconut Key—a manmade island shaped like a giant daiquiri glass—is “breaking ground” atop a lobster-breeding habitat in the middle of a pristine bay. As Jack sets out to derail the invasive project and save his salty slice of paradise, a host of unscrupulous characters flush from the shadows soon delivering Jack to the most perplexing question of all: Why would anyone build an island in the middle of an archipelago? The answer, which hinges on a baitfish cage filled with breast implants, proves far bigger than mere shady real-estate dealings.

| Retribution: A Psychic Detective Kate Pierce Crime Thriller (Psychic Detective Kate Pierce Crime Thriller Series Book 1)|
by C.M. Sutter
$0.00, 216 pages, 4.5 out of 5.0 (9 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Suspense > Paranormal > Psychics
The violent drug-related murders of two prominent attorneys have the homicide division of the Chicago Police Department scrambling for answers, but without clues, a motive, or a suspect, not even the FBI can track down the killer.
With the media demanding an arrest and at their wits’ end, the Chicago Police Department makes an urgent call to the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office in hopes of bringing in Kate Pierce, a psychic detective, on the case. A reluctant Kate agrees only when word comes that Jesse McCord, a new friend and top-notch Chicago homicide detective, has gone missing.
Partnered with Detective Henry Johnson of Chicago’s homicide division, Kate goes on the hunt for the killer, armed with clues from her revealing dreams—and her dogged determination. As they inch closer to locating Jesse and learning the identity of the suspect, they realize the killer may be much closer than they think.
“Psychic detective Kate Pierce works for a small-town Wisconsin sheriff’s department but gets called on by the big city when the Chicago Police Department finds itself at an impasse in a case involving two dead attorneys and a missing cop. Though Kate believes in the value of her work, she confronts not only a killer but also the good-old-boy network when her mostly male colleagues in Chicago ridicule her psychic abilities. This fresh, intriguing new heroine was a supporting player in some of Sutter’s previous novels and gets her well-deserved turn in the spotlight in this terrific new crime thriller series.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

| The Templar Map (The Detective Book 1)|
by K.R. Hill
$0.00, 252 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (47 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery
The FBI is searching for it.
Israeli agents are killing people to find it.
The criminal organization that got cheated out of it is looking for blood.
Into the office of Private Detective Jason Dalton walks a beautiful widow with a clue to the location of a priceless Templar map.
Dalton had an office in one of those old buildings downtown. You know the type, built in the twenties with a marble staircase, a huge lobby that smelled old and stale, a broken elevator with brass fixtures. Dalton and young Nick, his assistant, were working nickel and dime stuff: missing persons, insurance fraud, and rounding up a fugitive here and there.
Then she arrived. Dalton heard heels clicking on the tile landing, and looked up from his desk. Into his office walked a redhead with an envelope full of cash. As she crossed the room in that tight skirt, his mouth dropped open.
Mrs. Sophie Devonshire had been attacked. Her home had been burglarized. It all started, she said, when she found a photo of an old map among her late husband’s things. Could Mr. Dalton help her find the real map?
But the case was too good. Somebody was going to a lot of trouble to get Dalton involved. Could it be a trap? Then he found a tracking devise on his coat, and two military thugs burst into his office with laser sights and assault rifles, demanding the Templar map.
| Daisy and Bernard (The Daisy Hayes Mysteries Book 3)|
by Nick Aaron
$0.00, 189 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (7 reviews), #25 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Historical
In the summer of 1989 the Iron Curtain was unravelling, and Daisy Hayes had just become a pensioner who liked to do her ironing while listening to the latest news on the radio.
The doorbell chimed. A police officer handed over a summons—printed in Braille. Daisy was being asked to testify about a baffling and gruesome murder, and had to follow the policeman at once. During the ride to New Scotland Yard, even before the first interview took place, the blind lady reflected that, though she knew nothing about this case, she would not be able to prove her innocence without revealing the two murders she actually had committed—many years ago.
In an original twist to the “good cop-bad cop” routine, the older police investigator in charge of this strange case seemed to be very much in love with the blind suspect, and encouraged her to come clean and find redemption at long last.
“As we have almost come to expect from this author, Nick Aaron playfully tweaks and mixes the conventions of different genres, offering us a compelling murder mystery that is at the same time a heart-rending romance.” – The Weekly Banner
This is the third volume of The Daisy Hayes Trilogy:
I D for Daisy
II Blind Angel of Wrath
III Daisy and Bernard
Warning: a trilogy always has the disadvantage (?) that you have to read three books in the right order. On the other hand, each of these has a beginning, a middle and an end, and could be read on its own if you’re willing to miss out on the dramatic arc of the whole.
This trilogy as a whole is a story of crime, punishment, and redemption, and at the same time a portrait of the twentieth century as witnessed by one remarkable blind woman.
In the first volume Daisy Hayes is between 16 and 27, and she takes us along with her through World War II. The second volume brings us to the Swinging Sixties, Daisy is then 44. And finally in the third book she’s 66 and it is 1989, the year the Berlin wall came down.
Dear Daisy would have been born in 1922 and would probably be dead by now, or alternatively, still alive and kicking in her 90s.
| Killer Smile|
by Christina O'Brien
$0.00, 224 pages, 4.6 out of 5.0 (8 reviews), #780 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery
Killer Smile is a murder mystery that takes place in a dental office set in King of Prussia, PA. The main character is Darion Leggler. A dental assistant who is witness to the death of Anthony Catta, the mafia boss of Philadelphia. Anthony dies suddenly in the dental chair during a surgical procedure. His death mimics a heart attack and is believed to be the cause. Considering his stature and type of business, a full fledged investigation is warranted.
Officer Jack Mare of the Upper Merion Police Department verifies natural causes were not the culprit. Darion is followed by a strange bald man. Repeated encounters no longer justify a coincidence. Darion turns to Jack for the help she needs.
Suspicions veer towards her friend and co-worker, Tara Caldwell. Unexplainable changes in her behavior gnaw at Darion. When she and Jack probe into Tara’s past they are faced with more questions than answers. With more than her name to hide, Tara borders on the edge of reason.
Anthony’s son Vinny is hell-bent on taking the reins of the family business and will stop at nothing to obtain what he feels he deserves. The loss of Anthony Catta is the first turn of a downward spiral, exposing a secret Tony intended to take to his grave.
A woman is found in Walker Field dead, raped, and beaten beyond recognition. Jack and his partner Calvin are knee deep in political red tape tying up the Catta case when toxicology tests revel the unthinkable. A link between the two cases with no other common denominator.
Just when Darion thinks the betrayal of someone close is all she can handle, a test of her strength of character is put into action. With no time to spare and a dinner to appoint the new mafia boss in mere hours, Darion finds the answers she is looking for. The information is mind blowing.

Jericho’s former partner, Mickey “Mouse’” Davis, with whom he worked in NYPD Homicide, is found dead in his car —killed by a single gunshot fired into his mouth.

by J.P. Choquette
$0.00, 264 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (17 reviews), #60 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Women's Adventure
Vigilante. Business Owner. Woman on a mission.
Tayt Waters can’t help herself. When the justice system fails people, she’s compelled to take action. Who will help if she doesn’t?
When Tayt’s estranged father is the key suspect in a local murder case, Tayt is floored. How could her father—responsible and upstanding to the point of perfection—be involved? As she races to find answers, she discovers murder isn’t his only transgression. The further she digs; the more danger she discovers.
Just how far is too far when your life is at stake? Tayt is about to find out.
In the same vein as Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone character and Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, readers will enjoy the spunky, sarcastic humor of Tayt Waters. Readers are calling this book, "fast-paced," and "just dark enough to be a page-turner," and an "engaging, humorous read."

Award Winning Author of the Shattered Innocence Trilogy
I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.
I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.
The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.
If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.
If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.
The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.
Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.
Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:
Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.
From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.
Those same searches with a keyword:
Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.
There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:Kindle Freebies
The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.
The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.
Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date
They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online. Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.
If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.
Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.
Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
