It’s a rainy day around here and there are few things I enjoy more on a day like this than lounging around in my pj’s and reading a great book. Thanks to all the free Kindle deals Amazon posts, I have a huge collection of books just waiting to be read.
I have to admit that I’m drooling a bit over the new Kindle Paperwhite. I suspect that’s going to be at the top of a lot of Christmas lists this year.
There are some great Kindle freebies available today. Don’t forget you can read these even if you don’t have Kindle by using the Kindle app.
I always try and grab the freebies while they are available so I can read them down the road if I want to.
From Amazon: Author Diyana Nicole has taken inspiration from the likes of spas and tropical homes to create ‘Home Sanctuaries’. Relaxing home lifestyles based on everything from simplified home décor styles and decluttering solutions, to organic home spa recipes and treatments.
From Amazon: The Soup and Bread Cookbook aims to explore the social role of soup through a collection of terrific, affordable recipes from food activists, chefs, and others. This quirky exploration of the cultural history of soup as a tool for both building community and fostering social justice is the result of a brainstorm: eating your way through a pot of soup day after day can get boring — why not get together and swap some with friends? Now neighbors across the country are getting together regularly for home-based “soup swaps.” In Chicago, the arts collective InCUBATE uses soup as a microfunding tool. And of course, soup can be a political statement: the radical volunteers of Food Not Bombs have been providing free vegetarian soup to the hungry as a protest against war and social injustice since 1980. These are just a few examples of the stories Bayne wraps around a collection of delicious, accessible, and tested soup recipes.
From Amazon: Erin McHugh had spent the better part of her adult life doing community work, but in more recent years, the minutiae of life and working as a bookseller kept her busy and away from those higher impulses. Then one day she learned a distant relative was actually going to be canonized. Was this a sign? What followed next was McHugh’s sincere urge to recapture a sense of charity, and so she set out on her birthday to do one good deed every day for an entire year. Maybe she wouldn’t be saving orphans from burning buildings, but she wanted to take one small, daily detour and make someone else’s life just a little bit better. One Good Deed is the inspiring, smart, and frequently funny chronicle of that year, in which each page represents a day in McHugh’s journey to reclaim the better part of herself, inspiring readers to do the same.
From Amazon: When 27-year-old Sarah Levy opened her own pastry shop in 2004, she was barely out of college. She hails from a noted Chicago-based restaurant dynasty, but the success she’s achieved has been all hers, and she’s since gone on to open a second location inside Macy’s. Sweetness shows how anyone can make delicious desserts and sweet snacks regardless of cooking experience (or lack thereof) — especially younger women who may not have a lot of kitchen training, but want to have a few go-to recipes for events, gifts, or that special someone. This is the book for readers who want to learn how to make top-quality treats that will knock the socks off anyone who samples them. Levy’s warm personality, step-by-step instructions, and vibrant color photos make this the perfect addition to the bookshelf of both budding chefs and seasoned pros.
From Amazon: Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them.

Mouthwatering photos complement every recipe.

At the end of the day it all comes down to being a well respected informative voice within your niche. This is not a get rich quick book, but a guide that will walk you through the process of how to start a blog of your own, become an authority figure and discover how to make money through the power of the internet and affiliate marketing.
