Freebie and S.King Exclusive on Kindle

You can, of course, still read it on the Kindle 1, but these two won't be available until the Kindle 2 ships on February 24th.

Free: The Cook's Illustrated How-to-Cook Library: An illustrated step-by-step guide to Foolproof Cooking

This very special Kindle collection covers all the culinary ground, from barbecue, grilling, garden vegetables, holiday roasts, potatoes, soups, stews, stir-fries, pasta sauces, pizza, appetizers, salads, shrimp and shellfish, to pies, layer cakes, cookies and brownies, holiday desserts, ice cream, simple fruit desserts, and lots more. It's all you really need in the kitchen and it all sits nice and handy on a Kindle as well. Now your own definitive recipe collection is portable and easy to access, the perfect helper in the kitchen.


Exclusive for the Kindle: Stephen King's UR ($2.99)

Since his first novel was published in 1974, Stephen King has stretched the boundaries of the storyteller as a writer who constantly redefines his readers' experience by working in various genres and formats . Whether in an epic horror novel, like THE STAND, a serial-novel like THE GREEN MILE, or a novella like SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, King is able to deliver a reading experience like no one else can. As quickly as a spider spins its web, King reminds us why he's the master of the novella - a format which, up until now that is, one might have thought is fast disappearing. In his new novella, UR, King is at his unsettling best as he examines the future of the written word - for better or worse. Following a nasty break-up, lovelorn college English instructor Wesley Smith can't seem to get his ex-girlfriend's parting shot out of his head: "Why can't you just read off the computer like the rest of us?" Egged on by her question and piqued by a student's suggestion, Wesley places an order for Amazon.com's Kindle eReader. The [pink?] device that arrives in a box stamped with the smile logo -via one-day delivery that he hadn't requested - unlocks a literary world that even the most avid of book lovers could never imagine. But once the door is open, there are those things that one hopes we'll never read or live through. Firm, gripping, and deftly written by a craftsman at the top of his game, this is King at his crisp, clear, page-turning best. Download and read UR only on Kindle.

Yea, I saw that..... What does that mean. I really haven't been monitoring the file sizes of books.

I hope it isn't a Topaz book.

"Wheel of Darkness" by Preston is 703 kb.......just as a comparison.

King said it was a Novella. The size also contains any pics and with the introduction of 16 shades of gray, I suspect there may be an image or two in it. No idea which format, but would not be surprised at all if King insisted on topaz for the DRM (despite being a Kindle user and knowing how much worse they look). Topaz can also inflate the file sizes, as all the fonts have to be included.
