The updated-daily list of free Kindle books available. See US Kinlib or UK Kinlib - or just type "kinlib" into your browser wherever you are and the clever old WWW (wise web woman) will bring up the right page. Of course that won't work if you have registered your kindle in a place other than where you are living... but let's not get TOO complicated.

Korn on the Kindle
- LARGE genre of absolute krap, many titles of which are uploaded for free daily. Leading to the additional term, Daily Korn. Hard Kore and often at a level of explicity that Amazon probably needs to start to control, as freely available to minors and children with access to an er-eading device. On the plus side, the Kindle is easier to clean than paper, when wet or sticky.
