Free Amazon kindle books for June 21. Set of well-reviewed books (4+ stars and > 100 reviews) [amazon.com]
Been out of town a few days. 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.

I really appreciate your effort in putting together this list. One request: would you consider separating out young adult fiction from the others? Since Amazon's list display gives no clue as to the books' genres, it's frustrating to click on several promising-sounding titles only to discover that they're targeted towards teens.

When I read some of the comments after you post I honestly don't know why you keep doing this Weaver...I've learned not to read them because I get a big dose of how ungrateful, petty and downright lazy people are. Perhaps they think this is your livelihood and you're somehow making money on doing this for our SD community here at least then they'd be just dense and not callous and contemptible. Just know that it is appreciated. I've found some good books by this by doing something that seems like common sense...I read the descriptions then the reviews (with a grain of knowing salt that the first reviews are usually friends in many cases). And yes perhaps some of these books have been listed on SD before as Free but I don't think people understand that they also change daily (some are free for a day or two or even a month and then go back to charging) and that you're giving us what is free for that particular day (hence the dated format of your titles)
So just keep on keeping on..no need to sort everything as it's NOT your job and takes sensible people only a couple of seconds to determine if a book is of their desired genre or not (we're out there I swear!)
And to all else keep in mind its not happy people who are thankful..it's thankful people who are happy.

Wow- thanks for saying what I couldn't bring myself to say. This is certainly not my livelihood. i don't work for SD or Amazon or anyone related to books or publishing (though I read a shit ton of books and hope to publish a sci-fi book I'm working on one day when i retire). I gain ZERO for my efforts except the few thanks i get from folks like yourself daily. I've also encouraged others to add a wiki or post their own lists if they find other great titles for free that i missed.

And yes from time to time i post books that just happen to be in my order history that are not quite 100+ reviews or 4+ stars. Deal with it ! shake head
