Free Today on Amazon
As an avid reader, I really hate giving up on a book. A couple of days ago, I started a freebie that had an interesting premise and promising characters. It had a good start, but the story went nowhere as the prose wandered into long, repetitive explanations of the overly self-conscious narrator’s state of mind.
As we Kindle readers know, page numbers are rare, so I’ll just say that I got to Location 842 before giving up. That’s approximately a quarter of the way through the book, which is my typical stopping point if I’m going to give up. I won’t say what book it was. I’m just glad it was free.
That’s what I love about the freebies. If you don’t like a book, it’s no great loss. If you do like it, you’ll probably want to buy and read another book by the same author, so it’s a win-win situation.
Here are some free (for now) books that will hopefully make for good reading on a fall weekend. One of them, “Wildflowers of Terezin,” I’ve listed before, but haven’t yet read. Perhaps this would be a good time to crack – err – tap it open. I’ve also included a link to the The Descent Series by SM Reine. She’s offering the first four books in the series for free, with the newest book priced at $3.99.
Wildflowers of Terezin by Robert Elmer
Wildflowers of Terezin is a sweeping historical novel set against a backdrop of danger. A Danish Lutheran pastor’s complacent faith is stretched to the breaking point during World War II when he meets a young Jewish nurse Hanne Abrahamsen and becomes deeply involved in Resistance efforts to save Denmark’s Jews from the Nazi prison camp at Terezin, Czechoslovakia—also known as Theresienstadt.
A Provençal Mystery by Ann Elwood
Why did a nun in a seventeenth-century convent flagellate herself until her blood spattered the wall? Why did nuns save a child doomed to death in the Holocaust and who wanted her killed? Who wants a lost head-shaped reliquary that holds something other than a head? And are answers to these questions the key to a terrible modern-day death in a quiet archive?
Wander Dust by Michelle Warren
Ever since her sixteenth birthday, strange things keep happening to Seraphina Parrish. The Lady in Black burns Sera’s memories. Unexplainable Premonitions catapult her to other cities. The Grungy Gang wants to kill her. And a beautiful, mysterious boy stalks her.

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 posts for people who didn’t see them the first time.
