Free books updated Oct 4, 2013

Today's non-fiction include several Pollard books, usually only free a few hours, so if you're one of those still trying to get these, get them quick!  I often notify when non-fiction is done if it looks like it might be a while before the rest is done, so "LIKE" the P.U.V. page on Facebook (see button on the top of the right sidebar) and next time you will be notified.

Tom A. has let me know that another author seems to be doing the same thing as Pollard with his pricing times, Robert Van Norden.

Today's special picks (all the rest of today's books are at the links at the bottom of this post):

How to Read a Cow: And Other Essential Life Lessons

by Warren V. Hunt (Kindle Edition)
Comment: To populate the western expanses, the Homestead Act was passed to allow ordinary citizens to claim and develop land. Warren's parents were some of the early 20th-century settlers in Wyoming and Montana and they stayed until mid-century. Tales like those shared here are the real stories of the American west, not long after most of the "wild​" had left the West. Ranchers still carried firearms, rustling was still a hangable offense, and boys like Warren learned the self-sufficien​cy and gentle humo

Expedition Diaries - In The Throne Room of the Mountain God

by M Lewis, Matthew Gallagher, C Lumby (Kindle Edition)
Comment: Through avalanche, storm, death, trials and tears he fought on to live his dream. After twenty years in the mountains, from the Welsh peaks of Snowdonia to the greater ranges of the Himalaya, Karakorum and the wilderness of Antarctica, this is a collection of his expedition diaries - as they were written...Fore​word by Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE.
This one appears to only work on a Kindle or reading programs for other devices, not the computer.  Must be a glitch!

Each subject is now a separate Amazon wish list. Links are below, under the "fine print." 

The tab pages above under the header, which we used to use for the book lists now list only the long-term free books.  Still check the prices before "buying" as they still could change without notice.  They HAVE BEEN free for long periods.  I don't have the time to check often when authors may have removed them from their long-term-free status.
 If you "Like" Prep Utility Vehicle on Facebook I will let you know on those those days when all the non-fiction are done early in the day but the rest won't be done for quite a while, as an extra update.  This way you can get the non-fic as soon as possible.   See link at right to get Facebook updates.

As always, please double-check the price before you "Buy" your free books. These books have been found to be free in the USA as of this morning. Different countries may have differing pricing. Please check prices before clicking "buy" to make sure they are still free. Please see the tips on using the lists, in the bullet list below.

PLEASE NOTE: To help support the blog and the many hours I spend on it, if you decide to purchase something from Amazon, I would really appreciate it if you would come back to the blog here first and click on an Amazon affiliate link on the right hand side, before making the purchase. I will then get a small percentage. Since Amazon changed their policy on March 1, I have been working on this blog (over 750 hours) almost entirely for free, and I would really like to start making it help the family again. With your help, I can do that.

Please support this blog by clicking this link before you make a paid purchase on Amazon.

If you are not one who purchases items from Amazon, or would prefer to help more directly and with more effect than a 4% commission, I will soon be figuring out a Paypal button by which you can contribute.

I can't express enough how much I appreciate your help!

Here are the links to the respective lists for free books.

First, some tips on using these lists:

  • If you're new here first check all the long-term free books, which are listed in the tab pages above under the blog header.  Continue with next tip below.
  • If you're not new but are back after a break, First use the sort fields to the right just above the first books on the list, to sort the list by price, low to high. The books that are free should be listed first. You can then go through them all and get all the ones you want that you missed while away. (Reason: as old timers here will remember, prices are subject to change without notice. I will only delete books from the lists as I have large windows of time to check that they're no longer free, which may not be often, hence the need to sort this way.)  Then continue with next tips
  • Afterwards, for daily visits, I recommend using the sort field to "Sort by: Date Added." (I removed the recommendation to "Show: Unpurchased" because I suddenly thought the list might be showing you what I have not purchased, and not what YOU have not purchased.)
  •  Now keep an eye on the date added, in the right-hand column, so you don't miss all the ones added that day. (The reason is that sometimes I will forget that I added a book the day before and add it will recognize it and think that's the previous day's list and stop there, and miss some books. Also, sometimes I add books late in the day that you'd have missed.) 
  • Keep in mind that Amazon sorting engines are not perfect. If you sort by price, low to high, some are mixed up. At least they were for me. Your mileage may vary. You'd think that a company the size of Amazon would get this right, but.....
