30 Days of Thanks: Day 20

20. I am thankful for free zombie books.

As I've mentioned before, I like to read. I prefer to read "hard copy" books as nothing can really compare to  the experience of holding the book in your hand, grasping the next page in anticipation of what is to come. However I recognize that there are some situations where having eBooks are more convenient. I don't own an eReader but I do have a Kindle app on my phone that works pretty well.

A while ago someone shared freezombiebooks.com with me on G+. I like books, I like free, and I like zombies so this was right up my alley. From their website:
The name of FreeZombieBooks.com is pretty self explanatory. Every day (except Sundays) we share links to free zombie books for the Kindle or any device with the Kindle app. 
These books are 100% free legal to download. Why are they free? The authors can make them free for up to 5 days in a 90-day period. They do this to get their book out into more people’s hands. Please repay the favor by reviewing the books you download and checking out the rest of the authors’ works. 
We do make some money doing this. Every link to Amazon is an affiliate link, so if you click through and buy anything on Amazon within a day or so, we’ll get a small commission. This in no way affects your Amazon shopping experience, and it’s the reason we can keep providing this service for free.
So far I haven't read very many of the books as this is my back up, but I like knowing and I have several waiting for me to get to if I need them. Right now I'm reading 50 Shades of Gray Matter and it's pretty awesome. The description says it's "semi-erotica" but I wouldn't really classify it as such. Basically people who are infected can keep from becoming "full zombie" by remaining um, aroused, as the zombie infected blood rushes away from their brains. But other than some jokes about this it's pretty tame. There's no sex scenes or anything. The writing isn't super well done but it's really funny. I think maybe the author just needed a better editor or something. The book is normally $4 but it's currently free for prime members.

As an aside, I'm also on Goodreads. You should become my friend or whatever it's called over there.
