365 #FreeEbooks in Crisis

When I logged into my email this morning I only had one message from KinLib. There were two books listed for free from Amazon today in the text of the email.
I've got the shakes, I'm sweating a little bit, and I'm pacing back and forth between Amazon and Blogger. It's like withdrawal.
So I logged onto Amazon and hit the discussion boards.
Now, I'm in shock.  Not the oh, no I-have-to-sit-down-because-my-dog-ate-the-Thanksgiving-turkey kind of shock. I'm talking:

  • Passing out (losing consciousness).
  • Feeling very dizzy or lightheaded, like you may pass out.
  • Feeling very weak or having trouble standing up.
  • Being less alert. You may suddenly be unable to respond to questions, or you may be confused, restless, or fearful.
  • An abnormal increase in heart rate and an abnormal decrease in blood pressure.
  • Call 9-1-1

My dealer source for free ebooks - Princess Joyce - is *gulp* on vacation. *twitch*

Luckily, someone called Ketta saved the day. You the man, Ketta. (Or the wo-man, can't tell with online genderless handles sometimes)

S/he started the morning with the lists of an additional 112 free ebooks.
But low and behold, just below the regular kinlib links I see something new...and exciting.

Ereader (209 books - updated 8:40 AM PDT)

It's a goll danged new resource for FREE Ebooks. Squeeeee

This website is sweet-erific. Log on immediately if not sooner than right freaking now.
Somehow these brainiacs have a fancy schmancy algorithm that finds every single free ebook on Amazon. Plus, surprise, surprise, you can sort them to show just the genre you want.

I, of course, sorted by Romance (after I tried twenty other combinations just to see how many books would come up - I was like a kid in a candy library.)

Guess how many free ebooks are listed today, right now, in the Romance genre.
Go ahead. Guess.

365. Yep, Three Hundred Sixty-Five.

Shut the front door.

It's like kismet or something.

I am all over this.
Some of the books listed are ones I've featured here in the past couple of days like Harlequin - More than Words and SuperExtraFantagalistic Books. But, as I scroll through the eight pages of freebies, there are definitely some in there I've missed. 
Here are a few I downloaded this morning.

Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon                     Spying in High Heels by Gemma Halliday

Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous Sisters, Book 1)Spying in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries)

Pleasure Cruise by Michelle M Pillow & Mandy M Roth     Mr. Right for the Night by Marisa Mackle
Pleasure Cruise         Mr Right for the Night (Irish Romantic Comedy)

I'm not gonna show you all the books I downloaded today. It would be embarrassing.  Let's just say, I'm set. For the rest of the year.

Let me know in the comments section which books you download and I'll tweet them out for a little reader-author love.
