What qualifies as contemporary? Would it be book written since 1900? Would it be books who's authors are still alive?

To me contemporary is in the last twenty years or so, but most of the books on MobileRead are much older than that.

Can we include the 9 free books from Random House? They aren't available on MobileRead but they are free for at least the Kindle and Reader (I think for all of them, but I don't know for sure)
