Mods: I've placed this thread in 'Hot Deals' as opposed to 'Freebies' because an Amazon Prime membership is required, thus it won't be available to everyone.

At the bottom of the latest Kindle/Amazon First Reads [amazon.com] is an introduction to a new Prime benefit called 'Amazon Original Stories'. Just like a single from a music LP, these Kindle Single novellas or short novels appear to be free for Prime members to read on top of the monthly 'First Reads'. However, note that these Amazon Original Stories are FREE to read, not keep. You cannot BUY them for free, which is the major difference from the Kindle/Amazon First Reads program. Amazon is basically highlighting their own short novel publications and letting PRIME members read for free, without the need for a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Here is a link to the current selection of 3 Amazon Original Stories, plus 2 more available for pre-order @ $1.99 each.

The most notable selection is 'Ricochet Joe' by Dean Koontz. Happy reading.

To confuse us even more, it appears not all 'Kindle Single' ebooks are 'Amazon Original Stories' and vice versa. Here are a few 'Kindle Single' books I found that are free to read with Prime membership.
A Spy's Guide to Strategy [amazon.com]
A Spy's Guide to Thinking [amazon.com]
My Seinfeld Year [amazon.com]
The Girl in the Photo [amazon.com]
Surprise Ending [amazon.com]
