Free Amazon kindle books for Jan 24. Set of well reviewed books (4+ stars and > 100 reviews) [amazon.com]


Public service announcement: If you like the kind of books I list ( free books rated generally 4 stars or more and minimum of 100 reviews- with very few exceptions) and fear you may have missed some of my recent posts simply go here:

Many of the deals I have posted recently can still be obtained for free and can help you build quite a library of good reads on the cheap.

Please don't forget to come back and thumb this post up so I know there is interest in me posting. click "follow" for early notification when I post these deals as many do expire within minutes or hours of posting.

As always books are free at time of posting. PLEASE always double check before buying as they tend to not stay free for long. If a book is no longer free I ask that instead of thumbing down that you please reply to alert others and move on.

Why does 100+ 4 star reviews matter? Simple. Amazon lists many thousands of books that regularly drop in price to "free". The vast majority of these books, however are nothing but trashy romance novels and worthless "how to" or "self-help" books and "box sets".

These guides are for the most part nothing but copy-paste public domain online content and stuff lifted from Wikipedia articles and given catchy titles like "DiY Box Set of basket weaving" or "25 Amazing Tips to Improve your looks" or "50 Best Crockpot Recipes Ever!" etc (you catch my drift) . They take literally minutes to assemble and publish. They also frequently enlist college kids for fake 5 star reviews (or generate their own).

These brochures then need free zero dollar "sales" so they can increase their Amazon sales rank and get priority on the Amazon search filters. Once their sales rank crosses above a certain level, they return the price to "normal" and lure unsuspecting buyers believing the 25 page double spaced x-large font brochure being sold as an "Ultimate box set" of books" is actually worth a dollar or more.

Many of these crappy guides are promoted here on SD daily - about as frequently as they are published - (most likely by the same people who publish and profit from their sales) to recruit your time and to generate their free sales. Remember: when something is free on the internet, more often than not, YOU become the product.

Anyways, by focusing on 4 stars or more with 100 + reviews you avoid filling your library with as much of this crap and also avoid becoming an unsuspecting party to the free ebook scam.

Please support real authors and not scam artists.

Folks. Just FYI. I've been posting these deals daily here since early December. My goal is to not repost books that come in and out of being free if they have been posted in the last 60 days or so. Please check the link above for my prior posts for books that remain free since the time I first listed them. As always Thanks for your kind thoughts and support of real authors and not pamphlet peddlers.
