Kindle Freebies – May 18, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

Cup of tea, anyone? Or perhaps a book teaching you all about tea? I’ll take one of those please, with cream, no sugar. I also found some very interesting looking recipe books from Romania, Ukraine and Catalonia.

Keeping with the international theme, Top Sights Travel Guides are offering six of their guides for free. These are short city guides, no more than 30 pages each, but could come in quite handy when traveling with a Kindle. In case I do go on any international travels, I’ve got plenty to read. Today, I loved me some fantasy with a novel, a novella and a book of dark fairy tales. Fun.

For example, have you often wondered about the difference between regular tea and herbal tea? Do you wonder exactly how healthy tea is? Do you wonder where tea is grown and how it is processed?
