Free Kindle Reads: Non-Public Domain

These are the non public domain titles I've been able to find for free at this moment. Should you know of others, please leave me a comment to let me know. Thanks!

The Static of the Spheres

Product Description

Peter Leroy recalls his maternal grandfather’s attempt to build a shortwave radio, a project that begins with an article in Impractical Craftsman magazine promising "hour after interminable hour of baffling precision work." After many, many hours spent watching his grandfather labor at his basement workbench, Peter at last gets to put the earphones on, flip the switch, and twiddle the dials. Through the crackling and sussurous static he detects the sounds of love and lust, joy and sorrow, hope and loss.

Cybill Disobedience

'How I survived beauty pageants, Elvis, sex, Bruce Willis, lies, marriage, motherhood, Hollywood, and the irrepressible urge to say what you think.'

From wholesome beauty queen to saucy cover girl, from heartbreaking movie star (THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, TAXI DRIVER) to one of television's most loved comediennes (MOONLIGHTING, CYBILL), Cybill Shepherd is renowned as sassy, shocking and sexy. In CYBILL DISOBEDIENCE, she opens her heart with the wit and honesty of a star who's seen and knows it all.

A few days ago I became the proud owner of a Kindle 3. My very first Kindle. After ordering on July 29th I've had a lot of time to learn as much as possible about the Kindle.

One of the things I found out was that there were a lot of free books (also lovingly called Freebies) available on Amazon for its American customers. Unfortunately, I also learned soon that most of these are not free for customers who are -like me- based in Europe. Not only that; while the Freebies for US based customers are easily found through blogs and services like Kindle IQ, there is no place for European people to come and find them. Which is why I decided to set up this blog.

Now please, understand that there aren't a lot of free books available on Amazon for us right now. That means that 1. I can't promise daily updates and 2. I may even miss out on some.
Hopefully this will all change soon now that more and more people from Europe are getting Kindles. In the meantime I would like to ask for your help. If you stumble upon a book that is completely free for us in Europe, please contact me and I will add it to the blog as soon as possible.

Please note: occasionally I may post cheap reads that I enjoyed as well. I will make sure to let you know it's not a free read in the title of the post.

Thank you for your help and please enjoy this blog and the freebies posted.
