Oh, I ran across a Nevada Barr at the elibrary that I hadn't already read:

Deep South (An Anna Pigeon Novel): Nevada Barr: Amazon.com: Kindle Store

In this one, she's moving to Nachez Trace Parkway from Mesa Verde and, as usual, finding somebody dead, getting mired in mud, and, well, the usual Anna Pidgeon stuff. Gotta love every one of Barr's novels!

Just found a great internet spot for SciFi fans, especially the pulps of the 50s and 60s. Google for Arthur C. Clarkes website, its good thousands of all the great scifi books of the period.Best of all, they,re free to read, :-) Jim

How about a link. I found a lot of Clark stuff, but no books to read.

There is quite a bit free at Baen, though. Also, prices are reasonable on eBook purchases. At least the ones that have been out a while. The "hot off the (virtual) presses" ones are a bit pricy though.

Killology LTC Grossman and re-reading The Great River, the Pulitzer Prize winning class by Paul Horgan. Having just discovered Kindle, I am going nuts.

Killology is a great book. I love the analogy of "sheep" and "sheepdogs." So true.

American Sniper by Chris Kyle. Before that the Killing of Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly. Both are excellent.

Thanks Jim!

I try to take advantage of the free books myself. I generally read a couple or more a week after work. Being trained to speed-read has it advantages, but it can make for an expensive hobby.

As far as eBooks go, I don't mind paying for one every now and then. What really bothers me is when publishers want more than the price of a hardback for something that's been out in paperback. Talk about profit-taking.
