Al, since you are using a Ipod touch why not also download the Nook version then you can get free books from Barnes & Noble and they have a pretty nice list that changes frequently .

Yes. I get an RSS Feed from here:

Pipes: Free ebooks on Kindle

to my iGoogle home page, so if anything interesting appears, I see it right away.

What would be nice would be a filter that excludes religious, romance, and perhaps very old books from the RSS feed.

Thanks again. Those book categories you mention are a PITA, but they are also like junk mail - the keep down the price of other stuff for the rest of us.

Or a filter for fiction vs non-fiction.

Thanks for the link, Al. I got the "Fat, Forty, Fired" one.

I set up the RSS feed. Very helpful - thanks. After a couple of days, my first reaction is ... your point on the religious, romance and very old is understated. Especially the romance.

See, Michael, you should just use the T-Al filter the rest of us use--he finds the good ones and posts them here for the lazy among us.

Egad if I had to comb through the bodice rippers in order to find the gems, I might would rather buy some books!

Combing a bodice to find the gems? So many ways to respond...

Gee, that excerpt sure sounds compelling, Al!
I think she wouldn't care for how much I spend on beer, that's for sure!
