Good morning! Here are some free Kindle books for your week ahead.

An Amish romance, an urban bewitching fantasy, and a work of spiritual fiction. All highly-rated and recommended. Enjoy!

How do you find the free Kindle books? 

I'm always surprised at the different ways that people have come up with to locate free ebooks -- so I always worry that I'm missing a "secret source" of ebook news! :D

We mostly use our KB search tool -
http://www.kboards.com/search
- and look for free books in various genres, that meet our criteria (4-star rating or higher, multiple credible reviews, book length). If we haven't read the book, we sample it to get a feel for the quality and formatting, and if there are issues there we either eliminate it from the list, or note the concerns in the post.

We also have a site where authors can alert us to their upcoming free books:
http://www.kboards.com/free-book-promo
...and we review those for potential inclusion in our Free Kindle Books post.

We don't include erotica, and we filter out books that have less than a 4-star rating, or have fewer than 3 reviews. With few exceptions, we also weed out books that are less than 100 pages in length, unless they are a Kindle short.
