9 titles this month, and we get to pick 2 free (or reduced if not a Prime member)

The list and links: :)

First reads for January

Suspense: The Shadow Box

Contemporary Fiction: Hadley and Grace: A Novel

Thriller: Not One of Us

Historical Fiction: West with Giraffes: A Novel

Espionage Thriller: Water Memory: A Thriller

Literary Fiction: Gerta: A Novel

Memoir: Widowish: A memoir

Global Fiction: The Ardent Swarm: A Novel

Water Memory looks like the first in a series. The "Global Fiction" title is a translation from French. Gerta is a translation from Czech. At first glance, none of these jump out -- off to read the blurbs

The Book Bazaar / Free Book Finds 2021
« on: January 01, 2021, 04:01:50 am »
Post free* book finds here.   No self-promotion please!

To search Amazon for free books, click here.

This thread is for members to post their Free book finds, no self-promotion please. Posts about an author's own books will be removed. Also, please don't post your friend's book as a "find."  You didn't just  "find it," did you? ;) 

And please do not link through other sites:  use KBoards affiliate links (link-maker above) or generic Amazon links. :)

If you have a book of your own to promote, you may start a thread all your own in the Book Bazaar to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans!  Of course, you may also list the book in your Avatar and signature.  And you may list your temporarily free books in our Links to Free Books thread. Thanks!

Tip: typing in the title in addition to including the cover helps when doing searches!

We generally try to keep this thread on topic with book posts only, off-topic posts will be "pruned"!  This helps members who use the "new post" indicator or who have subscribed to the thread.  Thanks for your cooperation!



*buyer beware:  though books are free when posted here, prices on Amazon can change without warning so be sure to look before you click!
**international members:  these books are free in the US, but may not be free in your country.  Again, be sure to look before you click


Did we mention No Self Promotion?

Post your found bargain* books here.

(Link to the 2020 thread: https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,319749.0.html)

This thread is for all to post their Bargain book finds, no self-promotion please**.  Please do not link through other sites -- use KBoards affiliate or generic Amazon links.

We generally try to keep this thread on topic with book posts only, off-topic posts will be "pruned"!  This helps people who check the thread whenever they see the "new post" indicator or who have the thread set up for "notify."  Thanks for your consideration!

If you have a book of your own to promote, you may start a thread all your own in the Book Bazaar to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans!  Please do not post here or ask someone to do so on your behalf.  You may post in the bargain book threads open to authors, found here:
I'd Buy That Book for a Buck
Bargain Books Under $3
(These links may also be found in the Book Bazaar Threadipedia & FAQ sticky thread.)  Of course, you may also list the book in your Avatar and signature.  Thanks!

Tip:  typing the title of the book in the post as well as adding the image will help people searching for the book!



*'bargain' generally means under $5 (inside US - price may vary in other countries) . . .but, buyer beware:  prices can change without notice so look before you click!

**"Self-promotion" includes books that the poster has a vested self-interest in--books by friends and family or books that the member is posting on behalf of the author, to include paid or unpaid promotion

Is anybody having any luck voting? I saw the banner when I checked in this morning and I was able to vote in one category but since then it's just been showing 2019 results.

Also have gotten a 'server is too busy' error a couple of times.
