The Chicken Lady's Pick of FREE eBooks! (09/13/14)

Today I've got an eclectic mix of Free eBooks, because sometimes I just never know what I will find.  I hope you find at least one book in today's list that you might enjoy.

[Authors Note: I am always very open about the fact that links on my blog may be an affiliate link, (see my Full Disclosure here.) especially links to Amazon (because I am an Amazon affiliate), however I would never promote a product or service that I didn't think was a great value to myself and my readers.  To create even more transparency, (and to make my work just a little easier when putting these Free eBook posts together), I'm going to try using an Amazon-labeled image so you know for sure its an affiliate link.  You don't have to use my links to buy a product at Amazon, but if you do, you are supporting my blog with a teeny tiny commission.  And I will be ever so grateful!]

If you are new to this series, each Tuesday & Saturday I will be posting the Chicken Lady's Pick of FREE eBooks!  I will include books that I am personally purchasing, in my favorite genre's like non-fiction, books based on a true story, or fiction that seems non-fiction, self-help, autobiographies, true-crime, cook books sometimes, and children's books.  I will also be including some books that are not necessarily my kind of books, like sci-fi, romance novels, and books about sports, as long as they have very high reviews on Amazon.  Sometimes I will include books that are not free to all, but will be Free for you if you have a KindleUnlimited subscription. [Learn more about it & get a Free 30 day trial here.] Please leave me a comment if you like this series of posts as it will encourage me to continue bringing you a new list of FREE eBooks twice each week!

You don't have to have an Amazon Kindle to Read Kindle eBooks.

Here are today's 'Chicken Lady's Pick of FREE eBooks'

[*BEFORE PURCHASING* Please look at the price of the book before you purchase it.  These books were listed as $0.00 at the time of this post, but this is usually a short term promotion and then they go back to the full price.] 

What do most people desire in life? It is not money, it is not even love, it is happiness!  Learn how unnecessary negativity in your life can be avoided.  A positive attitude will change your life, keeping a positive attitude can be easier then you think when following these simple rules.  "The Pursuit of Happiness" is your spiritual road map.  This book is a mini-course outlining 21 spiritual rules to finding success when you are in pursuit of happiness.


Paulette Alden's Unforgettable: Short Stories is a beautifully observed, wryly humorous, and profoundly moving collection that follows Miriam Batson, the protagonist of Alden's earlier collection, Feeding the Eagles, into middle-age as she navigates her own aging, the life choices she's made,and the loss of those she loves. Written from the heart but without sentimentality, the stories give shape and meaning to feelings and experiences common to many, especially women.


"From cats to dogs to trees and leaves, from artichokes and lettuce to people and plans, from cherry tarts to strawberries, everything has a heart."  Whimsical illustrations with musical, rhythmical verse carry along this idea of hearts being everywhere with love included. This is a sweet message that is good for every day of the year, even Valentine’s Day.  It’s also a wonderful message for every child, old or young.  25 Colorful and delightful illustrations dance throughout the story.  Excellent book for a beginner reader.


A new author's first book written as the result of genealogical research into her mother's past and her family. Based on a true story 'Olga - A Daughter's Tale' is a family saga about love, heritage, culture, identity and belonging with an epic feel - from Jamaica to England amidst World War II.

Written in the form of diary entries and letters, it is about the cruelty, revenge and jealousy inflicted on an innocent young woman and about her moral courage, dignity, resilience and, in particular, love.  It is the story of a remarkable woman who, because of circumstances, made a choice which resulted in her losing contact with her beloved family in Jamaica until nearly half a century later when her daughter discovered her mother's past.

NOTE ABOUT KINDLES & AMAZON: Buy the way, you do not need a Kindle device to read Kindle books, you can download the Kindle app to your Laptop, Desktop, Smartphone, iPad and just about any smart devices.  You will need an Amazon account to purchase the free books.  Sign-up is super easy if you don't already have one.  To get a Free book you have to go through the purchase process even though the price is $0.00.  You will need a method of payment on file with Amazon, but they will not charge your card to 'purchase' a free ebook. 

*This was an unpaid, unsolicited post about the products shown above that I have purchased myself.  Neither the authors nor the publishers have asked me to include their books in this post.  The first image in this post today is courtesy of adamr at  I have included Affiliate links in this post, please see my Full Disclosure here.
