Free Amazon kindle books for May 23. Set of well reviewed books (4+ stars and > 100 reviews) [amazon.com]



Thanks for all the love folks. truly appreciated!

I offer these daily lists as a healthy alternative to the junk crap scam guides and coloring books that are peddled here daily by unscrupulous publishers. Please see the link below for more information about this:

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". Many of these guides are published with the express intent to defraud less savvy readers.

These free guides (with very few exceptions) seldom contain anything but transcribed public domain online content, recipes and articles lifted from sources like Wikipedia. [reddit.com] They are given catchy titles like "DiY Box Set of basket weaving" or "25 Amazing Tips to Lose Weight Fast" or "50 Best Crockpot Recipes Ever!" Or "ZenMasterDoodle adult coloring book" (containing nothing but public domain stock images) . These guides take literally minutes to package and publish. These publishers attribute the material to a fictitious author (often with a Western sounding name). They also frequently Pay for fake 5 star reviews (or generate their own).

These brochures NEED free zero dollar "sales" so they can quickly increase their Amazon sales rank and get priority on the Amazon search filters. Once their sales rank crosses above a certain level, they switch the price to several dollars and lure unsuspecting buyers believing the 44 page double spaced x-large font brochure being sold as an "Ultimate box set" of books" is actually worth money. By the time the real copyright owners can react, the book is pulled from Amazon and the material gets a fresh stock cover photo and slightly new title under a different author.

Unfortunately 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) . They recruit your time and your Amazon account 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 this crap and also avoid becoming an unsuspecting party to the free ebook scam.

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. Also it helps to counteract the multitude of thumbs down I get daily from these publishers who are seeing the SD effect diminished since I started my rants against their practices.

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:

http://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?searchuserid=153555&starteronly=1 and sort by newest

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.


Thank you and Please support real authors and not scam artists.

The link isn't working for me. It's not taking me to the usual free list of books.

Yes. I see that. Must be a Slick-deals issue since all my prior posts now also default the same way.

Sorry. Maybe a mod can fix it ?

Nope, it takes me to the same page.

Edit: Not that I need more books. I just wanted to let you know it wasn't working.

Edit 2: Your old links are doing the same thing. It must be a referral breaking your links.

Here is an older link from my history. I'll post it to see if it works.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb...count-rank

The above link works for me but it could be because of my history or a cookie.

Edit 2: I can get to the separated link you posted above manually.

That one seems to work but I'm not sure if it's because of a cookie, history or cache. I want to keep my history so I can't delete it. I tried deleting the amazon cookie and cache though and it works without them. I'll check tomorrow's link though and if there is a problem I'll let you know.

Cheers

Yep, but it's a new first book by a new author. He has a Amazon page and his own web page. He said it was free because the audiobook is being released.

And he has a sense of humor....
