December 10, 2008 at 9:33 pm (Announcement, Book News, Freebies) (, , , , )

So, the Kindle Store at Amazon has a bunch of books for free. And since I care, I share. Therefore, here I am, sharing. Tis the season and all that jazz.

If you got a Kindle -great! If you don’t, sorry, sucks for YOU! No, really, if you don’t have a Kindle and can’t afford one, your turn will come. Just gotta wait for Kindle people right now.

Anyway, I digress. Here are the books, click on the ones you want, click on all of them, or just read this message for the heck of it lol.

So let me just remind you, these books DO NOT STAY FREE FOREVER.

Therefore, GRAB THEM WHILE THE GRABBIN’S GOOD. I don’t want to hear whiners who waited too late and then came to me and said, “How come it’s no longer free?” My answer will simply be, “How come you waited so long to get something FREE?!?”

Now for the books, clicky clicky away people. Clicky clicky away.

Bitten by Books Review Staff – 2 electronic copies of the epic story “Nothing But Red”. This is not a paranormal story, but it is a book with a collection of stories that impacts women worldwide. The review team of BBB would like to spread the word about this important work and encourage each of you to purchase your own print or e-book copy of “Nothing But Red” in support of woman and ultimately humankind. About the book:
“In April 2007, a group of men pulled seventeen-year-old Du’a Khalil Aswad into a mob. They proceeded to stone and beat her to death, a supposed “honor” killing for allegedly falling in love with a man of a different faith. Several camera phones recorded the entire incident from the front row, and videos later surfaced online. One month later, popular filmmaker Joss Whedon expressed his despair and outrage at the misogyny in all cultures on a fan-run blog. “Because it’s no longer enough to be a decent person,” he wrote. “It’s no longer enough to shake our heads and make concerned grimaces at the news. True enlightened activism is the only thing that can save humanity from itself. I’ve always had a bent towards apocalyptic fiction, and I’m beginning to understand why. I look and I see the earth in flames. Her face was nothing but red.” The arts anthology Nothing But Red was conceived as a way to raise both awareness of the issues he spoke of, as well as money for the charity Equality Now.” Buy the book here: http://stores.lulu.com/nothingbutred
