    33 Ways To Kill My Husband [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    Admit it, ladies. The thought has occurred to you on more than one occasion. After all, he clearly has it coming, doesn't he?

    How To Conquer A Nation [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    You yawn as your friends boast of flying to Mars or poaching endangered species. You’re not looking for Ferraris in your driveway or jets on your runway. You want to do something exciting and original. What you crave is your very own nation. It’s about time you got one.
    Amazon.com: How To Conquer A Nation eBook: Matt Byron: Kindle Store

    Getting Lucky [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    How would you behave if you knew Karma was watching?
    One good deed deserves another. When a homeless man rescues a young boy from a savage beating he is rewarded with a life changing discovery. Unfortunately he was perfectly happy with his life the way it was. Now he is up against forces that are conspiring to make him be something that he's not, a decent human being.
    This is something of a 'pilot episode', if people enjoy it I will continue the story. It is a Novella, written with the busy reader in mind to be enjoyed in a couple of sittings.

    Liz Tells Frank What Happened In... [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    For the last two years, to spare her friend Frank from some of pop culture's weirdest atrocities, writer Liz Shannon Miller (G4's "Attack of the Show") has been catching him up on the movies, television and books he's missed: Stuff every person ought to know about, but maybe not actually experience for themselves.
    This edition, with a foreword by the eponymous Frank Smith, contains 20 of "Liz Tells Frank"'s most popular installments (including "Batman and Robin," "Night of the Living Dead," "Showgirls" and "Left Behind") -- plus five book-exclusive entries covering everything from Oscar-nominated "The Help" to Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse" to the 2002 "Rollerball" remake.
    From the fond nostalgia of "Sweet Valley High" to the soul-killing badness of "Madea's Family Reunion", "Liz Tells Frank What Happened In..." is an epic tour though entertainment's highs and lows.

    Toothpick for Two - Humor Gone Rampant, Love Gone Awry Short Story [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    A simple and silly little short story about two simple and silly little people; Grace and Benny Bevermeyer. “Toothpick for Two” was originally written for audio in a light-hearted, Tom Bodett-style narration.
    On a stormy night coming home from a family reunion, a long married couple is reminded why they love each other. A simple, thoughtful act warms even the coldest of hearts and can cure what ails those who have been together for years but have forgotten how much they really love each other.

    Men Fake Foreplay ... and Other Lies That Are True [Kindle Edition]
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    Emmy® Award winning comedy writer and Tonight Show comedian Mike Dugan's Men Fake Foreplay is a funny and engaging look at the trials and errors encountered on the road to becoming a man in a "boys will be boys" world.
    The title glibly answers the question, "Why do women fake orgasm?" But Dugan suggests foreplay is much more than what a man does before intercourse. What begins as a simple attempt to "figure women out" quickly shifts into a deeply considered exploration of the male psyche and the influences that shape a man's character.
    The result is a highly entertaining look at men's experiences with trust, responsibility, sex, intimacy, commitment, feelings, masculinity, street-corner sex education, role models, break ups, bubble baths, dating, fantasizing, diamond buying, lying, blaming, shaming, crying, dancing, and, especially, their relationships with women.
    Men Fake Foreplay ... and Other Lies That Are True - Kindle edition by Mike Dugan. Health, Fitness & Dieting Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

    Note: The 'free' status may not last long. Hope that you all like them.

    Ladies and Gents,

    May I present to you some good 'free' Kindle books. These are mostly non-fiction type. As of today, they are free.:)

    Soap Making for Beginners: A Quick Start Guide to Making Natural Organic Soaps, Nourishing Your Skin, and Saving Money (Soap Making - How to Make Soap ... that Make You Look Younger and Beautiful)
    Kindle Price: $0.00
    A Quick Start Guide to Making Natural Organic Soaps, Nourishing Your Skin, and Saving Money
    Soap Making is a rewarding hobby that has been practiced by many people for years. You are about to enter a very rewarding field that is not only fun but can also save money, and improve your health. Lets explore some of the benefits of Soap Making.
    Top 5 Reason to Make Your Own Soap
    1. SAVE MONEY! Stop spending your hard earned money on expensive soaps that are made out of unnatural ingredients and cost you a fortune. Instead you will be learning how to make natural and organic soaps that heal and nourish the skin.
    2. Beautify your Skin - The fact is your skin is your bodies largest organ. Anything you put on your skin is absorbed by your body and can cause issues that negatively affect your health. When you make your own soap you DECIDE what goes into the soap so that you can reap all the rewards and benefits your selected ingredients have to offer!
    3. Making Soap allows you to Avoid Harmful chemicals - Soaps that you buy at most stores contain unhealthy ingredients such as Antibacterial cleansers, Artificial colorants, BHA, Cocamidopropyl, and many more harmful chemicals that age the skin and make you appear old. When you make your own soap it allows you to hand select the ingredients and nourish the skin for a more rejuvenating and healthy experience.
    4. Have fun! - Soap Making is a hobby that is easy to get into and fun for everyone in the family. Have your friends over for a Soap Making party. Everyone will have fun doing it and educate themselves with the myriad of ingredients that you can use!
    5. Start your Own Business - Many Soap Making businesses started just like you. Reading a book, familiarizing themselves with the process, making their own personal soaps and them creating a thriving business that earns them a nice income.

    We still have it, but a bit rarer now, at food festivals etc with the increasingly popular "upmarket" type food carts around the city.
    [​IMG]
    Great memories of some late poker nights where a visit to the pie cart next to the main Post Office for a lovely hot floater was a life saver. Nothing fancy; you ate at the counter standing up behind hessian bag curtains rubbing shoulders with the night shift workers of various degrees of repute. That was the real wonderfully-reviving pie floater that established the reputation;)

    Thanks Mydave for the list - just did a DL of the above - this war was just devastating but I've not read a book (only chapters from others) dedicated to the topic - I'm a member of a classical music forum (have over 4K CDs) and am currently reading a book on 17th-18th century music - Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) was a famous German composer at the height of his career during this time - his court musicians & singers were conscripted into the armies of the times w/ many losing their lives - with reduced numbers, his compositions became leaner w/ fewer participants - probably his most famous works from this period were the 'Little Sacred Concertos' - I own the 3-disc set of these works below - sorry, got off on a tangent here! Dave :)

    Hello Leelai,
    It was a lot more than $64 a couple years ago, perhaps $200 then ;). The apps, thankfully, seemed to be in more reasonable prices, but we probably spent as much for apps and accessories as we spent for the iPads. Isn't it true.
    So, in a hurry to share, plus old eyes, plus early hours, plus . . . more excuses . . ., I made the mistake posting at wrong place.
    This is not the first time, and certainly not the last, but I'll be more careful next time :)
