Kindle Freebies – June 29, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

Yoga. I stumbled across two yoga freebies, one in particular for us desk jockeys. Office workers, writers, students and anyone stuck in front of a screen all day could really do with some good yoga stretches. People with portable offices, especially those who live in New York, may find today’s travel guide useful, a listing of the best cafes for writers, students and bloggers.

Speaking of writers, some of you may be familiar with the awesome Simon Haynes, creator of the free word processing software, yWriter. He is also a scifi author and the first book in his Hal Spacejock series is currently on the freebie list.

The writers among you may also be interested in “15 Things Every Writer Needs to Know.” It’s a section taken from a larger book, “Writing Online.” A good freebie makes for an incentive to buy. We’ll see how this one stacks up.

For fiction, I picked up the granddaddy of all them bloodsucking novels, “Dracula,” along with Bram Stoker’s short story compilation, “Dracula’s Guest.” I also grabbed a couple of YA fantasies.

A previously listed four-in-one cookbook has become available for free again and is listed below.

Enjoy the weekend!

Fiction

Hal Spacejock by Simon Haynes
Deep in debt and with his life on the line, Hal takes on a dodgy cargo job … and an equally dodgy co-pilot. This 80,000-word novel is the first book in the Hal Spacejock series.

Dracula by Bram Stoker
A naive young Englishman travels to Transylvania to do business with a client, Count Dracula. After showing his true and terrifying colors, Dracula boards a ship for England in search of new, fresh blood. Unexplained disasters begin to occur in the streets of London before the mystery and the evil doer are finally put to rest.

Dracula’s Guest by Bram Stoker
(No description was provided. This is from Amazon reviewer Paul S. Mcalduff) I consider this to be one of Stoker’s best books. I would rate it right up there with “Dracula” and “The Jewel of the Seven Stars”. The short stories in this collection are great. I especially liked the stories `Dracula’s Guest’ (which is supposed to be an exercised chapter from Dracula) and `The Judge’s House’.

Gateway (The Gateway Trilogy, Book 1) by Christina Garner
Ember has always known she doesn’t belong in this world, but when she takes matters into her own hands, she winds up in a mental institution. There she draws the attention of Taren, a mysterious boy with a dangerous secret. When chaos erupts, they are forced to flee together and Ember learns her secret might be the deadliest of all. With lives on the line, Ember must face old demons and new at… The Gateway.

The Fallen Star (Fallen Star Series Book 1) by Jessica Sorensen
For eighteen year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. Up until recently, she has been incapable of feeling emotion.

Disclaimers and Disclosures

I found these books via Amazon’s Kindle eBooks store. Resources for free Kindle and other format eBooks are listed in my sidebar.

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.

Books that I have previously listed will occasionally come up free again. I add those to my current list for people who didn’t see them the first time.
