I get a daily deal email for my kindle.  Today, you can get JD Robb's Midnight in Death FREE through Amazon's Kindle store.  I don't generally read her mystery stuff, but I do love Nora Roberts!
Just thought I would share this one since she's a pretty popular author.

Thanks for posting this Susie, I did not know you could get a daily deal for Kindle books. Will have to find out how to get that.

Bev--I have two email things I subscribe to. 

One is Bookbub.com--but they aren't all free, and you can customize what genres you want to see.

Two is IndieHeart:  http://www.indieheart.com/free-kindle-ebooks/

I love the JD Robb books.  They are really good mysteries with a lot of romance thrown in.  I am always checking for the free deals with my kindle.

I use Book Bub all the time and have discovered some authors I had never read before that I'll keep on reading now....love mysteries, especially with a little romance thrown in...love Lee Child and the "Jack Reacher" books.

I'm pretty sure I had it pre-ordered...haven't checked the Kindle yet to see if it downloaded.

wendy belongs to the powells book of the month club.   they send a lot of good books,  the last one though, it was a bit above me.  familiar by j. lennon  it didn't have an ending and i hate books like that.  it's like they have a good idea for a book, write it, then don't know what to do and just stop without an ending.   that ought to be against the law.

Didn't they just discover a new element?  The book may need a revision now.

Randy thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Impressed by the diversity of your reading, Gini!  No wonder you're so smart!  And yes, it's amazing that you are both a prolific reader and quilter.  Wish I could accomplish half of what you do.
