Free ebooks 2/28/13 edition

Changes are coming to this page due to changes in Amazon's affiliate program that put lists like this on in jeopardy. Please read about what is going on and what you can do to help keep this freebie list alive here.

Every day, except those times life gets in the way, I search Amazon to bring you the highest quality FREE ebooks to help you live a thriftier, more self-reliant life.  These are the results of today's search.  There are no magic lists or feeds to tell me where to find these books--this is the product of hours of work.  Even though these books are free, I do make a small commission if you buy anything on the same trip to Amazon as when you go to download these books and that is what pays me for the hours of time I spend doing this for you.  If you enjoy these lists, please keep that in mind the next time you go to make a purchase online and start from on of my links on this blog or my Facebook page.  I hope you enjoy today's selections!

Before we get to the free books, here are today's "Reader Recommendations", good products that cost money, that I am promoting here due to the changes in Amazon's affiliate program:

No one shared any actual Reader Recommendations for today, so here are a couple of my favorite homesteading books of all time.
This first one is not the same edition I have and love, but it is rumored to be even better, so I'm confident in recommending it.  The edition I have has wonderful tables in the back to help you figure how soon in the spring you can start various plants, how late in the summer you can start more for a second or third harvest, and schedules for continuous planting.

I draw a lot of inspiration from this book.  This book is a large part of why I believe I should be able to grow most, if not all, my family's food on the 1/5 acre we now have.

And now on to the free ebooks....

This post is time sensitive.  If you are finding it after the post date, most of these are probably no longer free.  Always check the price before clicking "buy."

If you don't have a Kindle device, you can still access these books by downloading an app for your computer, tablet, or smartphone, or by using the Kindle Cloud Reader to read them online (or you could buy one, since the sheer number of these free daily ebooks makes it worth while! They start at only $69!).
