I've got more Baen books on my K3 than I do Amazon books! (wish whispersync to the Kindle app worked with non-amazon books)
Actually, all of Honorverse books published by Baen are available for free at fifth imperium. I would recommend you buy at least a few though to thank David Weber and Baen with being so generous with what is -- after all-- their bread and butter.
