"Fast-paced, smart read. Fast paced and all too plausible! If you are concerned about how money drives politicians you owe it to yourself to read this book. Even if you're not it's an excellent thriller! Very well researched. You'll see how how our supposed privacy is an illusion. Compelling characters, excellent plot. I couldn't put it down. Had to know what Tom's next move was going to be. Read this book!" -- Amazon reviewer

The elite aren't afraid of laws or regulators or voters. The only thing they fear is an uprising of the people.

That fear is about to be realized.

The man who now calls himself Thomas Paine lived by the rules until he lost everything, including health insurance for his dying wife. Now he's vowed to bring about a Second Bill of Rights using vigilante violence against the "real Public Enemies" -- politicians, banksters, lobbyists, and CEO's.

Can FBI Agent Darren Medlin stop Paine before those for whom the American Dream has turned into the American Nightmare join his "American Insurgency"? Can vigilante tactics spawn a non-violent third party and achieve true political reform, or will government squash that as well?

And what about young talk show host Crystal Dickerson? By using her show to announce his demands, Paine thrusts her into a spotlight she's not yet ready for. What decisions will she have to make, and how far will Medlin go before he draws his own line in the sand?

Fledgling (The Dragonrider Chronicles), by Nicole Conway. (Still 0.99?)

"Classic fantasy. Genetic misfit meets dragon, goes to training camp, struggles with gaining acceptance, finds a friend or two, and faces many dangers along the way (not all of them due to the prejudice against him). This was a fun read. I enjoyed it and look forward to the sequel." -- Amazon reviewer

Jaevid Broadfeather has grown up as a wartime refugee, hiding from the world because of his mixed racial heritage. He feels his future is hopeless, until a chance encounter with a wild dragon lands him in Blybrig Academy—a place usually forbidden to anyone but the rich and royal. But Jaevid’s case is special; no dragon has voluntarily chosen a rider in decades, so the proud riders of Blybrig must begrudgingly let him join their brotherhood despite his bloodline. Lieutenant Sile Derrick, a sternly tempered man with a mysterious past, becomes his instructor and immediately takes a peculiar interest in Jaevid’s future.

While struggling through the rigorous physical demands of training, things begin to go awry. Jaevid witnesses the king’s private guards kidnapping Sile in the dead of night. When none of the elder riders are willing to help him, Jaevid begins a dangerous adventure to save his instructor.

No Kindle is complete without this set of classic books from L. Frank Baum -- at an unbeatable price!

"I forgot how wonderful these books are. I am old enough to remember the first time I saw Dorothy open the door to Oz. It was the first time I saw Technicolor. After seeing the movie I asked my mom to find the book. Mom said I was too young to read it, so I asked my Grandma. She got the book and we spent hours and hours reading it. She helped me with the words, and this memory is now repeated with my children." -- Amazon reviewer

Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems (Over 100 Works, including The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, with Exclusive Bonus Features), by Edgar Allan Poe. (Still 0.99?)

"Poe was an original. You have to read Poe if you are at all interested in the origins of detective fiction and speculative fiction. I recommend the kindle edition because of the number of archaic words--the dictionary is there by simply highlighting a word. Many stories are humorous and snarky. He wields a wicked pen. You can see how death of his young wife influenced the stories. Reading them all in a collection like this, over a short time, I felt I got a real sense of the man. In that, the reading becomes increasingly more sad. Even the humorous stories reveal a frustrated genius." -- Amazon reviewer
