The No-Numbers Approach to Saving Money, by Higher Read. (Still free?)

Want to save money, but hate budgeting? This book is for you. Free today!

"The No Numbers Approach to saving Money is a straightforward approach to getting a handle on and then taking control of our spending habits. Even those of us who shrink from self discipline will find they can embrace the principles outlined. The Author recognizes that breaking old habits and forming new is rarely if ever instantaneous so gently coaches readers into developing methods that will help develop simple 'No Numbers' long term principles in order to control ones spending." -- Amazon reviewer

The No-Numbers Approach helps you save money but stays away from dollars and cents because many people find budgeting intimidating and overwhelming. The No-Numbers part of our approach to saving money means we avoid burn out because we don’t count pennies. It is not a condemnation of penny-counters. On the contrary, if you get to the end of the No-Numbers Approach and feel ready to work with a traditional budget, good for you!

But for those of us who never want to – or don’t want to yet – work with a spreadsheet and numbers but still want to save, it is best to start saving in the easiest way possible. Since modern society already generates records of our spending for us – namely receipts and bills – we can use those records to watch our money without having to crunch numbers.

In this book, you will learn how to cut spending without spending a lot of time doing calculations. You will learn where you spend the most and how you can gain control over that spending. And having control over spending is a very good feeling.

Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

The Life and Prayers of Saint Anthony of Padua, by Wyatt North. (Still free?)

Free today, this edition comes from Wyatt's popular 'Life and Prayers' series.

"If you haven't tried Wyatt's "Life and Prayers" series, this is a great title to start with. Saint Anthony is a beloved figure in the church, and his life story makes for interesting reading. This little book has a good and thorough biography of the man who preached so profoundly that even the fish came to listen to him speak. Also included are prayers, both by and to Saint Anthony. Great work, Wyatt!" -- Amazon reviewer

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Saint Anthony of Padua is an essential book for any Christian.

For centuries Saint Anthony of Padua, Thaumaturgist, Evangelical Doctor of the Church, has been regaled and venerated as a wonder-worker, eminent theologian, and preacher. To him infertile women, sailors, the poor, seekers of lost articles, to name a few, have prayed to intercede. Thousands upon thousands flocked to hear him preach, and witnessed his miraculous deeds.

We hope that with this book, the reader might realize an invitation to call upon Anthony, not just to find lost things, but as a companion in a quest to find a renewed and challenged faith, hope, and love.

The Soul's Mark: FOUND, by Ashley Stoyanoff. (Still 0.99?)

Amelia discovers that her birthmark is really the branding of a vampire's soul - and that bond turns to jealous control when Amelia becomes attracted to another man.

"I was enthralled by Amelia's character and couldn't believe the changes that Mitchell went through in just one book. Not one single character in the book is a cardboard cut-out place holder, but rather, all characters are well developed and can hold their own as real people. As a reader, you come to identify with many characters on a personal level, not just the main characters. They all talk like real people as well. It was refreshing not to have sentences full of colloquialisms or characters who speak like they are defending a thesis at an Ivy League college." -- Amazon reviewer

Book 1 of The Soul's Mark Series

Anxious to leave her destructive past behind, Amelia Caldwell moves to Willowberg, excited for a fresh start. Once there, she discovers that her birthmark is more than it seems. She has been marked by a vampire's soul. Not only does she hold his soul, but Amelia is also his soulmate.

After almost a century of searching for his soulmate, Mitchell Lang fears the worst--he is going to lose Amelia to another man. His heart takes over, and his impulsive decision to take away her free will and to intensify their bond quickly turns her growing love into hate.

When they become trapped in the emotional rollercoaster of their souls' bond, open conflict erupts. Amelia has no intentions of belonging to anyone, not even her soulmate, and Mitchell refuses to let her go.

While she frantically searches for a way to escape his grasp, Amelia unlocks the painful memories of her past and uncovers a powerful secret. But before she has a chance to explore her newfound edge, she finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly game of revenge and is forced to realize that YOU CANNOT RUN FROM DESTINY.

275 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 22 reviews.
