Ok, I totally missed the Saturday post...I just got back from being in Colorado for 10 days and got my days totally mixed up. I thought Saturday was Friday, then by the time I realized I was messed up was it was too late to post it. So here we go...today's list of the Chicken Lady's Pick of FREE eBooks, 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.
[*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.]
Alone and blind at 29,000 feet!
Former Navy rescue swimmer Brian Dickinson was roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest—also known as “the death zone”—when his Sherpa became ill and had to turn back, leaving Brian with a difficult decision: should he continue to push for the summit, or head back down the mountain? After carefully weighing the options, Brian decided to continue toward the summit—alone. Four hours later, Brian solo summited the highest peak in the world. But the celebration was short-lived. After taking a few pictures, Brian radioed his team to let them know he had summited safely, and got ready to begin his descent. Suddenly, his vision became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds, he was rendered almost completely blind. All alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness, Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and his faith. In Blind Descent, Brian recounts—in fantastic detail—his extraordinary experience on Everest, demonstrating that no matter how dire our circumstances, there is no challenge too big for God.
Brian Meeks could write for The Onion, so sublime is his snark. Those who profess to love, and disdain, social media will finally find common ground in "Underwood, Scotch and Wry." Finally, a social media satire for the rest of us!

As someone who works in social media, Arthur entering the digital world is a great study on human behavior and the fear many have about the practicality of using the Internet. Though it's fiction, Meeks provides a fun and fascinating read on how the social networking world truly works and the nuances that underline a friendship you make online. That and the Chicago Cubs make a few appearances, which makes me love the book even more. Join the world of a professor who is trying to figure out the online world before his students make him look bad.

"Moving at a fast clip…the narrative explores many weighty issues…which Sharry covers with insight and finesse. …the tale becomes quite gripping as the details of past mysteries unfold. A nostalgic romance, rich with Portuguese culture and a few surprising twists at the end." KIRKUS REVIEWS.
Renata Raposo is struggling to make a new life on Cape Ann when stranger Mark Valente appears with a journal kept by his uncle, Peter Ahearn, almost forty years ago. It chronicles Peter's isolated life as keeper of a nearby lighthouse, his passionate and dangerous love affair with the young Renata…and an astonishing confession.
But Mark is stunned when the Portuguese beauty denies everything, dismissing the writings as merely the fantasies of a lonely, broken man. Now Mark is left to question whether anything his uncle wrote...including the confession...is true. He must connect past to present, and piece together a picture of what really happened decades before. And he must grapple with his own burgeoning infatuation with the now middle-aged, mysterious Renata.
~~~~~~~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.
