The Didymus Contigency by Jeremy Robinson, I am not much for religion type stuff normally but I thoroughly enjoyed this. No idea if it is available as an E-book though, I own the TPB.

You might try The Accidental Time Machine by Haldeman. Haven't read it yet but it's on my wish list. Here's the synopsis

Grad- school dropout Matt Fuller is toiling as a lowly research assistant at MIT when he inadvertently creates a time machine. With a dead-end job and a girlfriend who left him for another man, Matt has nothing to lose in taking a time-machine trip himself--or so he thinks.

I can also second slayda's recommendation on 1632. Although the time travel takes place in the first chapter. It's a very interesting read and, at least at one time, it was a freebie.

I understand Flint wrote this as a one off, but it was so popular, he's written several more in the series.

I actually came to this thread right now to suggest just that book.

I have read it, it was actually my first Haldeman. I absolutely loved it and i have read many of his other novels. not the best book I have read by him, http://www.librarything.com/catalog....earch=haldeman , but one of the better books i have read.

That is an exceptional understatement. There are I believe 7 novels, as well as 21 anthology collections set in that universe.
