Kindle Freebies – May 8, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

Reference books. It’s just one of those days with a lot of good, free nonfiction on subjects that interest me. Other than that, I picked up a dessert book with attitude, a recipe book for tea parties, a YA fantasy novel and a father/son memoir.

Recipe Books

28 Delicious Desserts with Attitude
Jennifer Roberts has been cooking all her life. In this mouth watering collection of dessert recipes she’s assembled some of her all time favorites. Some of them might have odd names – like Chocolate Salami – but they all taste absolutely terrific. Serve any of them up to your guests and they’ll be begging you for the recipe. The book contains a mixture of guilt-free healthy recipes you can eat with a clear conscience, as well as some rich and truly decadent ones. But they’ve all got one thing in common – they taste fantastic!

Award-winning author and Anglophile Leigh Michaels shares her favorite tea parties, complete with menus and recipes. Includes eleven themed tea party plans (including a formal tea reception, happy hour tea, lovers’ tea, picnic tea, high tea, Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and more) and more than 50 recipes.

Fiction

Reckless Magic
16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can’t seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and the last private school willing to accept her. She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kingsley is not like the other private schools she’s been to. The students may be different, but so is she. And after meeting Kiran Kendrick, the boy who won’t leave her alone and seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality. To top it off, she is being hunted by men who want to kill Kiran and her best friend Lilly is taken away to a foreign prison. Eden finds herself right in the middle of an ancient war, threatening everything she loves.

Nonfiction

The Bookie’s Runner

For decades he worked on his system. It had to be foolproof. He could only afford to run it once. He meticulously studied the form for every race ever recorded – the horses, their characteristics, their lineage, their combinations, the race track, the conditions, the outcome – and made his predictions for the next race.

The 8 Pillars of Motivation
Why care so much about being motivated? Motivation moves you beyond your goals. Motivation enables you to live your purpose. Motivation unlocks your fullest potential. Motivation stimulates your greatness. When you zone in on your true motivation, you will feel a surge of energy from within. It is addictive and you will refuse to let go of it. When you tap into your own natural source of motivation, it will feed on itself and you don’t need outside factors to constantly replenish it. When you feel this way, nothing – nothing at all – can stop you from living your life’s purpose.

Saving and investing for retirement has never been more important…and with this book, it’s never been clearer what you need to do and how to do it.

Descriptions provided by Amazon

Keep in mind the books listed are my personal choices. Pixel of Ink and its affiliates, which are listed in my sidebar, have a lot more freebies to offer.

These freebies are limited time offers, so there is no guarantee any of these books will still be free when you click on the links. Grab them sooner rather than later.
