Free Kindle eBooks from Microsoft Press: W8.1, Azure, SQL Server and more

If you like free technology e-books, you can scoop up the “Introducing Windows 8.1 for IT Professionals” Kindle ebook (140 pages, Oct-2013 publication) by author Ed Bott from the Amazon Kindle store. I don’t know if this is a limited time offer or like this on an on-going basis. This is a Microsoft Press book, it’s not some random self-published book.

Kindle First choices for January 2015 are up: now you can get two free

One of the least well-known benefits of an Amazon Prime membership is the Kindle First benefit. Every calendar month, four pre-release e-books are available. Before, as a Prime member, you were allowed to select one of them for free, and read it right away, a month before the rest of the world can read them. But for January 2015, you are allowed to get TWO of these four e-books for FREE! It is nice when a benefit expands instead of retracting. The selections change every month.

For January 2015, here are the four selections:

  • “Everything Burns” by Vincent Zandri (Thriller)
  • “Miramont’s Ghost” by Elizabeth Hall (Historical Fiction)
  • “Flirting with Felicity” by Gerri Russell (Contemporary Romance)
  • “Heart Collector” by Jacques Vandroux, Wendeline A. Hardenberg (Mystery)

Happy e-reading 🙂
