Bargain @ $1.99 from HarperCollins for today only (May 20th) according to the newsletter, in Canada & US (should be the same price at all the usual retailers):

The Lost Landscape: A Writer's Coming of Age by National Book Award-winning author Joyce Carol Oates (Wikipedia), a memoir of her early life and formative literary experiences.

Written with the raw honesty and poignant insight that were the hallmarks of her acclaimed bestseller A Widow’s Story, an affecting and observant memoir of growing up from one of our finest and most beloved literary masters.

The Lost Landscape is Joyce Carol Oates’ vivid chronicle of her hardscrabble childhood in rural western New York State. From memories of her relatives, to those of a charming bond with a special red hen on her family farm; from her first friendships to her earliest experiences with death, The Lost Landscape is a powerful evocation of the romance of childhood, and its indelible influence on the woman and the writer she would become.

In this exceptionally candid, moving, and richly reflective account, Oates explores the world through the eyes of her younger self, an imaginative girl eager to tell stories about the world and the people she meets. While reading Alice in Wonderland changed a young Joyce forever and inspired her to view life as a series of endless adventures, growing up on a farm taught her harsh lessons about sacrifice, hard work, and loss. With searing detail and an acutely perceptive eye, Oates renders her memories and emotions with exquisite precision, transporting us to a forgotten place and time—the lost landscape of her youth, reminding us of the forgotten landscapes of our own earliest lives.

I appreciate Packt's daily free ebook giveaway (look for another one after 7 p.m. ET U.S. today). I hope that there are peeps on MobileRead to whom those books are useful.

Anyway, I just learned that their direct competitor, O'Reilly Media has some 279 free ebooks on various computer and other (such as general business) topics. Do not adjust your set (anyone under about 55 years of age won't understand what I'm talking about. ha)--that's 279.

I've got to send you to a couple of different websites in order for you to see all of them: http://http://www.oreilly.com/free/reports.html and http://www.oreilly.com/programming/f...programming_ac.

Flash! I just ran across 20 more free books from O'Reilly, not directly related to computers, these being on the subject of design: http://www.oreilly.com/design/free/?...free_report_ac.

I think that I saw somewhere that these are in the PDF format. I don't know if any of them would be available in other formats or not. To be honest, I haven't downloaded any of them. None of the subjects are of interest to me, except for perhaps as a drug-free alternative to Sominex, on those nights when I just can't get to sleep . . . .

Packt's free ebook of the day, which continues free until 7 p.m. ET U.S. tomorrow, is Practical Machine Learning.

Head to this webpage in order to get the ebook.

If you don't have an account with Packt, I think that you will have to register first. However, once you've registered, you do not have to log in when you visit the webpage (why can't all ebook vendors do this? It probably helps that the folks at Packt are experts at coding . . . .).

Packt maintains a library, at their website, of the books that you have purchased from them. You might wish to visit the thread, "If You Had a Library with WTS Books, It's GONE Now!" in the E-Book General forum, and other relevant threads, in that forum and others, to read about the importance of downloading and backing up ebooks located on the ebook companies' websites.

Good reminder. I have gone to their site many times, but probably not in the last year. I was able to find 12 of their Design books for free, and design can be fun, even if you don't actually build the thing (physically or virtually) at the end.

I got 12 of their books, 5 in *.PDF and 7 as *.epub, so it looks like a mixed bag for file types. I hate PDF-only book availability less for technical or photo books, and with some book contest, may actually turn out better in PDF.

On sale today at Amazon.ca

Mozart's Starling by Lyanda Lynn Haupt for $CDN 2.99
https://www.amazon.ca/Mozarts-Starli.../dp/B01LL8BU7Q
The Amazon blurb:
"On May 27th, 1784, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart met a flirtatious little starling in a Viennese shop who sang an improvised version of the theme from his Piano Concerto no. 17 in G major. Sensing a kindred spirit in the plucky young bird, Mozart bought him and took him home to be a family pet. For three years, the starling lived with Mozart, influencing his work and serving as his companion, distraction, consolation, and muse.

Two centuries later, starlings are reviled by even the most compassionate conservationists. A nonnative, invasive species, they invade sensitive habitats, outcompete local birds for nest sites and food, and decimate crops. A seasoned birder and naturalist, Lyanda Lynn Haupt is well versed in the difficult and often strained relationships these birds have with other species and the environment. But after rescuing a baby starling of her own, Haupt found herself enchanted by the same intelligence and playful spirit that had so charmed her favorite composer.

In Mozart's Starling, Haupt explores the unlikely and remarkable bond between one of history's most cherished composers and one of earth's most common birds. The intertwined stories of Mozart's beloved pet and Haupt's own starling provide an unexpected window into human-animal friendships, music, the secret world of starlings, and the nature of creative inspiration. A blend of natural history, biography, and memoir, Mozart's Starling is a tour de force that awakens a surprising new awareness of our place in the world."
