Free Kindle books

I've been playing around with Amazon and Feedburner trying to see if there's an easy way to see new freebies on the Kindle and came up with this. I thought it might be of interest to a few of you.

These appear to be public domain titles, rather than promotional titles.

The promotional titles should also appear as they are added to Amazon's store and tagged as "kindle freebie" by readers. There hasn't been any for a few days though - I guess even Amazon's elves get Christmas off.

Come the new year any promotional titles should start appearing in it.

I've put a bit of testing in to avoid picking up stuff that isn't kindle or free even if it's tagged as such.

Well it definitely works with promotional titles. 3 have appeared in the last day.

I did notice there was a glitch where titles that were free but not any more had slipped through because used & new copies(!) were $0.00 - but hopefully I've fixed that now.

Interestingly all 3 of the titles that appeared in the last day were only free for a few hours.

I've now produced a version of this which mashes (smashes?) up Amazon's latest free kindle books with Smashwords latest free offerings:

Sorry for the bump. The peeps at Smashwords have very kindly added a few new features to their RSS feeds so they now include much more information about the book including link to author's page, picture of the book cover and categories. It should be much easier to tell whether you're going to like the book from the RSS feed now.
