Free Self Sufficiency E-Books

Post by NoAm » Fri Apr 20, 2012 9:48 am

I have been coming across a bunch of free e-books lately. I thought it would be nice to have a local place to share these downloads. Sometimes the offers don't last long, so if you see something you want, grab it.
If you don't have an e-reader there is a free Kindle app you can download on your computer, available on Amazon.
When you click on these, make sure they are still free. Some offers are for a limited time.

I will get started with ....

NoAm, thanks for this thread!
Note: When you are grabbing these books, pay attention to the suggested books towards the bottom. I followed a few interesting links that led me to even more. I even ended up finding basic primers (geared toward schools) on chemistry, biology, physics, maths etc. I'm going to be perusing these today :D
I'll include a link just in case anyone is interested.

Oooo! A survival short story!
http://www.amazon.com/The-Mountain-City ... 873&sr=1-6
An airborne epidemic has killed off most humans, turning those left behind into hungry beasts. Now, a solitary survivor lives above a dead city, hiding in a trailer with the door and windows taped shut. Survival comes down to two, simple rules: stay quiet and protect the air. But one day a visitor comes up the mountain that threatens everything.

I'm downloading all I can find. When downloading the books and the ones in the links below the main one on Amazon, I found that the subject matter gets wider and wider to include literature and children's books. This is great for me since I have a 2 month old and I'll have a whole library of books available on my iPad when we're not at home,...and when he gets old enough to pay attention.
