Free and bargain Kindle books! (Monday Dec 8)

Real Santa, by William Hazelgrove. (Still 0.99?)

"This book is a real page turner and shows the lengths a loving father will go in preserving his child's faith. I can truly say this is one of the best holiday themed novels I have read. It brought back memories of holiday movies from the past including The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th Street, Yes Virginia There is A Santa Claus. I recommend this as a staple on everyone's bookshelf." -- Amazon reviewer

"This heartwarming and humorous Christmas story shows the determination of one man to bring magic to his daughter's childhood." Foreword Reviews
 

George Kronenfeldt is an unemployed engineer with one shot to keep his daughters belief in Santa intact. When Megan tells him the only way she will believe in Santa is if she can videotape him and then tells her fourth grade class she will prove the existence of Santa Claus by posting her video to YouTube, George realizes he must become the Real Santa.
 

Real Santa is a funny heartwarming story of parenthood gone wrong and illuminates what lengths parents will go to keep their children happy.

Touched by Death (Parts 1 & 2) (By Death Series), by Dale Mayer. (Still 0.99?)

"Dale Mayer has done it again. She's written an amazing, page-turning book that's unlike any other book I've read. I can't imagine any other author setting a book in Haiti after a devastating earthquake - and pulling it off so brilliantly. I cared about Jade and Dane. They felt like real people in trouble. I admired them and wanted them to be safe and happy. I'm good at guessing endings, but this book kept me in suspense up to the end." -- Amazon reviewer

Death had touched anthropologist Jade Hansen in Haiti once before, costing her an unborn child and perhaps her very sanity. A year later, determined to face her own issues, she returns to Haiti with a mortuary team to recover the bodies of an American family from a mass grave.

Visiting his brother after the quake, independent contractor Dane Carter puts his life on hold to help the sleepy town of Jacmel rebuild. But he finds it hard to like his brother's pregnant wife or her family. He wants to go home, until he meets Jade - and realizes what's missing in his own life.

When the mortuary team begins work, it's as if malevolence has been released from the earth. Instead of laying her ghosts to rest, Jade finds herself confronting death and terror again. And the man who unexpectedly awakens her heart - is right in the middle of it all.

Dream in Color, Think in Black & White: How to Get Unstuck and Fulfill Your Dreams, by Jonathan Bissell. (Still 2.99?)

"This will transform your dreaming and your thinking into impact. I plan to read it again and again for each of my own dreams and will recommend it to my clients and family members alike! Don't be fooled by the brevity of this work. The section highlights are so powerfully written that they linger long after you put your book (and pen) down. Jonathan Bissell compels you into creating a plan to actually achieve your dreams in a way that seems totally doable. I'm ready to tackle my next dreams!" -- Jane A. Creswell, Master Certified Coach, Founder of IBM Coaches' Network

Admit it. You’re stuck.

Somewhere along the way, you had a dream that you let go of. But it hasn’t let go of you.

You're the reason this book was written. Because dreams matter. Dreams are powerful. And sometimes dreams just won’t go away – no matter how impractical, ill-timed or financially risky they are.

This is a book about getting unstuck in your life or career. It’s about learning to Dream in Color and Think in Black & White.

There are three parts to this book: Dreaming in Color, Thinking in Black & White, and Fulfilling Your Dreams. Each part contains practical “how to” steps and examples explaining how to get unstuck and move toward your dream. The rest is up to you.

Let’s get started.
