I sent email. got stupid reply (vaguely related, must be sent by pattern matching monkeys, eg, computer AI). Told them not helpful on email they sent, included why (didn't you even read email?), asked for callback.

Suspect that gets you a second line of support, that is more able to give you things if they can't solve issues.

I still have an ongoing issue with the archives on my Kindles missing large numbers of books (you can see them on the two iPads or the website, but not on at least three Kindles, which have varying numbers of books missing). No idea if they will ever get that fixed.

I asked over in the B&N forums if today's Nook Daily Find was going to be fixed (since it isn't a deal, at all) and the only result was that I can't even find my question was in the forums (which are a pain to navigate) and they haven't updated the NDF page or the book's price. A reader commented, though, that she thought that Parliament of Whores: A Lone Humorist Attempts to Explain the Entire U.S. Government ($8.59 Kindle; $3.30 B&N), by P. J. O'Rourke, was supposed to be today's Daily Find -- there is, at least, a bargain price on it. Don't ask me, though, how she found this was "supposed" to be it, as the book I posted earlier is still featured on the B&N Nook page, the main home page (as an ad) and on the NDF official page.

Book Description
Called “an everyman’s guide to Washington” (The New York Times), P. J. O’Rourke’s savagely funny and national bestseller Parliament of Whores has become a classic in understanding the workings of the American political system. Originally written at the end of the Reagan era, this new edition includes an extensive foreword by the renowned political writer Andrew Ferguson—showing us that although the names and the players have changed, the game is still the same. Parliament of Whores is an exuberant, broken-field run through the ethical foibles, pork barrel flimflam, and bureaucratic bungling inside the Beltway that leaves no sacred cow unskewered and no politically correct sensitivities unscorched.

I tried email support and heard nothing back. I had tried chat support before that and the person I got was clueless but tonight I decided to try chat one more time. I got someone who was very helpful and wonderful! They gave me the 50% off the right cover. So I ordered the Eco-Flip for my K4. So I am happy now!

Free from Christian publisher Tyndale House:

Fuse of Armageddon, by Sigmund Brouwer, Hank Hanegraaff

Book Description
Nothing more could go wrong for maverick hostage negotiator Mulvaney Quinn. First stabbed in the hand during a failed terrorist burst, then arrested for a hate crime he didn't commit. Now Quinn must come face to face with his past in order to stop the worst terrorist threat of all time—a plot to bring about the ultimate religious uprising by destroying one of the most sacred relics in history.

But the Fuse of Armageddon has already been lit. With the clock ticking down toward a global catastrophe, Quinn must team up with the most unlikely ally of all—the woman who arrested him—to bring down an even more unlikely coalition of enemies. Facing an unholy trinity of a Jewish fanatic, a Muslim terrorist, and a “Christian” freedom fighter, only Quinn can stop them from achieving their goal. But will he be in time? Or is it already too late? Because when Armageddon is unleashed, the fate of the entire world hangs in the balance.



For Time and Eternity (Sister Wife), by Allison Pittman

Book Description
All Camilla Deardon knows of the Mormons camping nearby is the songs she hears floating on the breeze. Then she meets one of them—a young man named Nathan Fox. Never did she imagine he would be so handsome, so charming, especially after Mama and Papa’s warnings to stay away. Though she knows she should obey her parents, Camilla can’t refuse her heart. But even Nathan’s promises cannot prepare her for what she will face in Utah.

Two repeat freebies:

The Truth About Managing People, by Stephen P. Robbins, is a new edition of what appears to be a full business management book (there are two more with the same title and different covers, which are approximately the same file size and selling for $8 to $10).

Book Description
You can succeed brilliantly as a leader and overcome the “killer” problems faced by every manager!

* The truth about building winning teams and designing high-productivity jobs
* The truth about why “happy” employees aren’t always more productive
* The (surprising) truth about what behaviors you really want to reward

This book reveals 53 Proven Principles for handling virtually every management challenge.

The Truth About Managing People offers real solutions for the make-or-break problems faced by every manager. You'll discover: how to overcome the true obstacles to teamwork; why too much communication can be as dangerous as too little; how to improve your hiring and employee evaluations; how to heal "layoff survivor sickness"; even how to learn charisma. This isn't someone's opinion; it's a definitive, evidence-based guide to effective management: a set of bedrock principles you can rely on throughout your entire management career.


Germs, Genes, & Civilization: How Epidemics Shaped Who We Are Today, by David P. Clark

Book Description
The Stunning Hidden Interconnections Between Microbes and Humanity

AD 452: Attila the Hun stands ready to sack Rome. No one can stop him--but he walks away. A miracle? No...dysentery. Microbes saved the Roman Empire. Nearly a millennium later, the microbes of the Black Death ended the Middle Ages, making possible the Renaissance, western democracy, and the scientific revolution. Soon after, microbes ravaged the Americas, paving the way for their European conquest.

Again and again, microbes have shaped our health, our genetics, our history, our culture, our politics, even our religion and ethics. This book reveals much that scientists and cultural historians have learned about the pervasive interconnections between infectious microbes and humans. It also considers what our ongoing fundamental relationship with infectious microbes might mean for the future of the human species.

Prayers for Today, by Kurt Bjorklund, was originally a freebie available to all, billed as a 30 day sample of the book. The ASIN has been retitled and now appears to contain the entire book (there is no sample or other edition and the description has changed) and is free for UK Kindle customers only. (UK link)

Book Description
A collection of classic and contemporary prayers, some derived from Scripture and others from the writings of Christian leaders throughout the centuries, this beautiful volume invites readers into a daily experience of closer intimacy with God. Each day's entry focuses on one of ten traditional types of prayer:

* Prayers of Thanksgiving
* Prayers of Confession
* Prayers of Affirmation
* Prayers of Petition
* Prayers of Renewal
* Prayers of Praise and Adoration
* Prayers to Have Christ-like Character
* Prayers for Wisdom and Guidance
* Prayers of Intercession
* Prayers of Surrender

With 260 entries -- enough for every weekday of an entire year -- Prayers for Today guides readers through a unique kind of spiritual pilgrimage, a pilgrimage toward the very throne room of God.

For any reader who's ever wanted more out of prayer or who's ever hungered for a greater sense of God's presence, Prayers for Today promises deepened communion with the One who treasures the words and longings of His people.

Two more repeat freebies:

The Rules of Work, Expanded Edition: A Definitive Code for Personal Success, by Richard Templar

Book Description
Some people are simply great at their job. They always seem to say the right thing; do the right thing. They are mentioned in every conversation. Everybody likes them. They get promoted. They get pay rises. They get along with the boss. And somehow, they do all these things without being unpleasant, breaking much of a sweat or seeming to put in excess effort. And when they are offered another step up the corporate ladder or a fabulous new job, no one is surprised. After all, they have 'potential' written all over them. How do they do it? Do they know some secret we don't? Yes, they know The Rules of Work. These rules aren't about how to do your job, day-to-day (assuming you are pretty good at that already). The Rules of Work are about how you are seen to be doing it. They are about how you appear to others. And they are about helping you to achieve the success you richly deserve. The first edition of The Rules of Work became a global phenomenon, topping bestseller charts around the world. This new, even better, edition includes 10 brand new rules to take you further, faster. These rules are the guiding principles that will improve both what you do and how you do it, giving you the unmistakable air of confidence that will win you admiration, respect, and the next promotion. With The Rules under your belt you'll have the edge in everything you do, without having to compromise your principles.

Free Interactive Book (Android) - The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin

Today's Free Android App at Amazon is an interactive children's book, The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, by Oceanhouse Media

Book Description
"One day in the pumpkin patch the strangest little pumpkin hatched. Spookley wasn't like his friends—where they had curves, he had ends."

So begins The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin. This delightful and inspiring book for your Android device combines the original text of author Joe Troiano and artwork of Susan Banta with features that entertain and promote reading.

Spookley the square pumpkin was different. In a world where "the only good pumpkins are round pumpkins," Spookley is shunned. Until one day during a terrible storm he gets the chance to make a difference. In The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, a unique pumpkin delivers a special message of tolerance and self-acceptance that's just right for Halloween or any day of the year.

This Oceanhouse Media omBook features professional narration, background sounds, and enlarged artwork for each scene. Children can choose the Read to Me option if they would like the audio narration but want to go at their own pace (turning the pages themselves); beginning readers can opt for the Read it Myself mode. Auto Play reads the entire story without any prompting or page-turning, which is especially useful for very young children.
Support for Little Readers

To help kids learn to read in a fun way, individual words are highlighted as the story progresses and words zoom up when pictures are touched. Kids can slide a finger from right to left on the screen, and the "page" actually turns just like a real book. The overall effect is to make a classic story come alive, providing hours of entertainment for all ages.
