"Kindle is already the best-selling e-reader in the world. We kept everything readers love about Kindle--the electronic ink display that reads like real paper, with no glare, even in bright daylight, the convenience of downloading books in less than 60 seconds and Kindle's ability to disappear in your hands so you can get lost in the author's words--and made it lighter, smaller, faster, and more affordable than ever."

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Just Dial 911 for Assistance

A great read, written about Chris Allen, a 911 Dispatcher and part-time online columnist.

He is is about to have a busy twelve days. For starters, there’s that pesky 911 call he took that’s probably going to send him to court. On the upside, though, Chris gets to meet the cute new receptionist at the Sheriff’s office. A hint of romance may cheer things up, that is, if his ex doesn’t keep hanging around and playing her usual mind games.

The book is written almost exclusively in dialogue, that can be sometimes difficult to keep up with- sometimes there's more than one conversation going on at a time. However, Chris is a witty, charmingly irreverent character and makes reading the story almost like having a conversation. I thoroughly enjoyed the lighthearted, breezy book.  Perfect for summer reading.  Get it while it's free.




Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The DNA of Relationships

Something different this week in the Kindle Store for free.

Like Smalley's previous books, THE DNA OF RELATIONSHIPS is engaging, largely because he sprinkles his teaching points with anecdotes in which he presents himself as the jerk who has taken years to learn lessons he wants to pass along; the "relationship expert" is just a regular guy. His style is also evident in this book's clear outline; for example, chapter 4, "The Power of One: Take Personal Responsibility" includes "six steps to take control of your emotions and reactions to life." For extra measure, each chapter ends with a one-page "One-Minute Review" of the major points.

I'm not familair with Gary Smalley, and I have not read any of his other books.  Might give this a try for the heck of it.
