Free Amazon kindle books for September 7. 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 See for yourself:

How to scam amazon customers out of $100k a year.. [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:

https://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.

There is a real problem with owning too many things; to the point of renting out mini-storages just to keep more things that will likely never see significant use again. The western consumer culture turns all of us into curators of our own stuff, forever tasked with taking care of material items we will rarely/never use/enjoy, but somehow derive comfort from just owning.

Just an FYI, Sell Everything: Get rid of all your stuff WITHOUT a yard sale! is a 45pg book. It lists various websites (~30, don't quote me) that you can use to sell all sorts of different items besides just Ebay or Amazon and gives a short Pros/Cons list for each. If you are looking for in depth tips/tricks and specific setup instructions, try looking elsewhere.

It's not bad to get you started on where to look if you really have no idea where to start.

Digital media/software is a bit different than owning physical items. You can delete digital media/software without much work at all. In addition, the general rule is that your storage capacity does not scale proportionally with the physical size of the storage medium. The 30gb Maxtor HD I had back in the early 2000s is still the same form factor as the 8TB drives being made today.
