Free Kindle eBooks w/Links 3-6-12:

Free Kindle eBooks:

As per the usual, here is this week’s installment of free eBooks. I’ve been really good about remembering to put up these posts. I’m proud of myself! Well anyway, all information such as titles, product descriptions and links are gathered directly from I have nothing to do with any of those including the price tag. What is free right now may not be free in 10 mins. Amazon updates hourly, so get them while you can. Also, check out my past postings, there were some repeats this week so you can do some scavenging for other free eBooks. I try not to repeat two weeks in a row. 
I am trying out the ratings next to the number of pages. Let me know if it is helpful in a comment. If no one comments I am not going to include the ratings as it just takes more time and if it’s not helpful there is no point to including.
