Free Kindle e-books; Limited time offer

When reading ebooks, I use Stanza reader. But when it was malfunctioning last year, I switched to Kobo and I enjoyed its perks like awards and statistics, which made reading more fun. But it was "heavy", taking too long to load, and transferring files was a bit of a hassle. And then Stanza had an update, I've been using it with Calibre, which I think is the easiest way to organize and transfer books from my laptop to the iPhone.

Recently, I decided to switch to Kobo again because I like its features, but I haven't really read anything on it yet. I just transfered my books from Calibre library to it. One can say I'm torn between two readers.

But last night, I discovered that some authors offer Kindle edition of their books for free to garner readers and reviews. I downloaded and installed Kindle on my iPhone and decided to use it for that purpose. Who doesn't love free stuff, right? I'm always on the look out for something new especially now that I've found myself deep in love with the written word. Despite my ever growing TBR list in Goodreads, I try to find time to welcome debut authors and unpopular novels into my life.

Here are some of the limited time freebies I found in and downloaded to my Kindle.
