Hi all I'm looking for some eBooks to buy if I get a Kindle for Christmas. I like to read anything and everything and if there is a new author out there that is good feel free to post and let me know.

Thanks everyone.

Larry Corriea has a bunch of good books. His Monster Hunter series is awesome as well as Grimmoire

I switched to ebooks about two years ago now and have about 200 books so far. Started out on my iPhone and then picked up an iPad in June and just love it. I mostly read political thrillers (Vince Flynn/Michael Walsh/Brad Thor), scifi (Frank & Brian Herbert) and crime books (David Baldacci/Robert Crass) though I have put away about eight zombie books (Peter Clines/Max Brooks/Z. A. Recht/J. L. Bourne). To tell you the truth, I haven't picked up a real book in a long time.

I think this will take me some time to get used to as I love print and the feel of books.

I have a couple of Brad Thor's books just have not read them yet. Thanks I will look up those authors.

I dont know Peter Clines so I will have to look that author up.

I am reading Hayek's 'Road to Serfdom' on my android. It is about political economy. Good read; very relevant for today's world... Google the .epub and you'll find it...

He has written two zombie/super hero books. Wasn't expecting much because that's not my thing, but ended up liking them a lot.

Ooh, OOh, pick me - pick me!

At least the books are in Kindle and are on sale now.
Book three finished up today (hoo-rah) and should be out at the first of the year. Then the price for @2 and 3 will go to $5.99 and book 1 will stay at $3.99.

If you are interested in post-apocalyptic fiction.

I just finished a book on my cell phone's Kindle app called "Life Among the Dead" by Daniel Cotton. It was $3 and is 598 pages. It took me about a week or so of some solid reading to finish. Overall I'd say 9/10 with the point deduction largely being grammatical and spelling errors, which were infrequent enough to be considered a concern, and that no book ever deserves a 10/10 (because no book will ever be perfect). Highly recommend.

There is a series of books on Kindle by Mark Tufo called "Zombie Fallout". They are a wonderful and excited series. I recommend them highly.

I've read the "A New World" series by O'brien. Pretty good and entertaining. They have the "I am Legend" type zombies in it.

So here's a shameless plug for my new novel... check out Zombie Youth: Playground Politics recently published through Severed Press and available through Amazon. You can read some more about it at www.hegoodhue.wordpress.com and Amazon. Thanks for your consideration.

What will the children do when the adults suddenly die? Worse yet, what will they do when the adults do not stay dead?

Playground Politics is the first novel in a new apocalyptic series following a group of students left behind after much of the world has died. With no guidance or supervision they are left to recreate society as they see fit. But not everyone shares the children’s vision of the future…

“Cover-to-cover apocalyptic thrills and tension – unrelenting.”

I've received a lot of emails from friends and family about my first Kindle book "Phoenix Rising" (Ayers).

Next book will have a better editor!

"Zomblog" was excellent. Also "Alice in Deadland" was pretty good. Liked both of the books.
