Algebra – The Very Basics
Blurb: If you’re looking for a gentle introduction to basic mathematics, look no further. This book picks you up at the very beginning and guides you through the foundations of algebra using lots of examples and no-nonsense explanations. Each chapter contains well-chosen exercises as well as all the solutions. No prior knowledge is required.
Topics include: Exponents, Brackets, Linear Equations and Quadratic Equations. For a more detailed table of contents use the “Look Inside” feature. From the author of “Great Formulas Explained” and “Physics! In Quantities and Examples”.
Reader Review: My daughter is taking Algebra 1 and I wanted to be able to help her with homework. This book is a great introduction and refresher. The explanations are short but clear and are demonstrated with lots of helpful examples. Definitely worth a try for students (or parents) struggling with math.
Me: According to the reviews and Amazon links, if you like this book, you might also be interested in this 3 dollar title: ALGEBRA in WORDS: A Guide of Hints, Strategies and Simple Explanations
Twenty-Four Vincent van Gogh’s Paintings (Collection) for Kids
This is just what it says it is, no more, no less. 24 color images of Van Gogh’s paintings. There’s not really any information other than the title of the paintings. I think it’s a neat project (he has plenty of other artists available, too). I suggest first just letting kids look at them, and then playing a sort of ‘I Spy’ with them. At some point you and your child could try to draw sketches of them (nothing fancy, just a kind of map or diagram of what’s in the image and where). Or you could take turns describing the images and guessing the names of the paintings.
CK-12 Middle School Math Grade 6, Volume 1 Of 2
Blurb: CK-12′s Middle School Math Grade 6 covers the fundamentals of fractions, decimals, and geometry. Also explored are units of measurement, graphing concepts, and strategies for utilizing the book’s content in practical situations. Volume 1 includes the first 6 chapters.
Reader Review: The kindle version does not give you the answers and im not sure if the website does, but I have to say for being free. It has a ton of good lessons in it that are great for anyone refreshing themselves or learning algebra for the first time. I put the lessons on my phone and have been working on them at work. The only down side is not having an answer key but you can still get allot out of the lessons plus its free. And there is a web site you can go to that is also very helpful that goes along with the material. This actually would be great for home school kids and anyone that wants to improve on there education.
Reader Review: This book gave me a helping hand , because my 5th grade daughter is not the best @ math . But she bought this book on her Kindle fire and she worked on this book for hours and she really liked it ! But that’s not the best part yet…… when she entered middle school her grades went way up !!!! thank you so much!!!!! and please please pleas continue to write these awesome and helping books!!!!!
Negative reviews mostly complained that it was boring, or too easy.
Here’s the second volume:
CK-12 Middle School Math Grade 6, Volume 2 Of 2
CK-12 Basic Geometry, Volume 1 Of 2
reader review: With this purchase of the CK-12 Basic Geometry, Volume 1of2 in Kindle digital format, I feel I made a good choice over a college text and am now relearning geometry. It provides the reader a good explanation of the concepts and gives some good examples to work in problem solving. It is written like a textbook, without the formal academic puffery the typical college engineering text can give. I feel it is like normal classroom conversation in it’s delivery and I feel the author is talking to me. It also has good learning and practice questions and answers, so you can follow up with testing yourself. It is an easy read for learning this subject, that I remember being tedious in High School and I’m glad it is in Kindle digital format, as I use the Kindle PC App I downloaded from Amazon just for this kind of learning from a Kindle book. It’s a great reference in this form and on the PC and a good tool for learning. This Basic Geometry format gives the reader many working and study problems and then follows up with review work for the reader. If you are the student who would like to attempt this subject and will need it for a follow up with other math uses, it is a good read.
Reader Review: I made a good choice by selecting this book to help a youngster with geometry homework problems. Provides good explanations and examples. I was able to find the information I needed to help my nephew with solving problems.

The Gospel of Mark: Bible Trivia Quiz & Study Guide – Education Edition (BibleEye Bible Trivia Quizzes & Study Guides – Education Edition Book 2)
I’ve downloaded a couple of these. I like them for a change of pace with our Bible reading and study for school. There’s a chapter from the bible, then a list of questions on the chapter with answers. The format is one multiple choice question per page, followed by the answer and the complete text of the verse(s) where the answer is found.
I generally just read the questions aloud in order to avoid the multiple choice format, which isn’t my favorite, and to spend a little bit of extra precious time with my teenage son. This isn’t all he does for Bible study, and this isn’t something we use all the time, just every once in a while.

Easy Family Meals: 50 recipes for everyday cooking (Family Menu Planning Series Book 4)
Reader Review: This superb cookbook is lovingly created by an author who understands that nutritious meals must be great tasting for family members to enjoy the meal and ask you to make the recipe for them again!!!!!
For me, I cook for people that are very PICKY eaters and prefer the old standard not so good for you recipes. Sound familiar? So when I happened upon this cookbook while searching in the Kindle store under family meals, this one caught my attention. Now I use it alot and list below why I love this cookbook:
+ Each recipe is given: Prep time, Cooking Time, Yield in Servings.
+ The recipes are much more nutritious and tasty too!
+ Very well illustrated cookbook (most of the recipes have a picture of the finished recipe, but not all).
+ Easy to read even on a small 7 inch Kindle.
+ Recipes have just a few ingredients and easy to find ingredients. (Many of the ingredients I have on hand always, these are staple foods that I keep in my pantry and fridge at all times.
+ Recipes that are meat and potatoes that most families will like!
Some of my favorite recipes in this book are:
* Macaroni Salad – This is great cold or even heated! Used fat free mayo instead of the vegan.
* Baked Fish – Finished in just 35 minutes and a great substitute for the fried fish I made before! So much flavor!
+ Chicken Tenders – This baked version uses crushed corn tortillas for the coating and they are tasty and crispy and it is ready from start to finish in just 40 minutes!
+ Cheesy Stuffed Potatoes – This one has baked beans for extra protein and it is more filling.
So I found this to be a family friendly cookbook, it is the best of two worlds: Taste and Good Nutrition!
Paleo Dressings and Dips – 25 Delicious Paleo Condiment, Dressing and Dip Recipes (Quick and Easy Paleo Recipes Book 10)
Avocado dressing; hoisin sauce; pineapple salsa; substitutes for the usual salad dressings. In looking at the preview, the avocado and pineapple recipes looked great. The BBQ sauce looked good, no added sweeteners, does have liquid smoke (You have to read labels, most have added ingredients, but Wrights Liquid Smoke doesn’t). So there may be other recipes that won’t fit with your ideas of paleo or clean eating, but there should be plenty that do.
Sarmale – Romanian Old Recipes from Rustic Cuisine (Delicious Romania)
Romania is a very interesting country from Europe.

About good Romanian food is this book, too. Sarmale means a common rustic dish prepared in all Romanian homes.

Can be this complicated? Of course not, even a child can do it. You can feel the special taste and smell, too. Just try some recipes! Everything about preparing sarmale is step-by-step described and I hope you like this.
This book is the first part of “Delicious Romania Series”, containing original old rustic recipes, selected and compiled by a Romanian journalist after visiting local monasteries, simple homes in Romanian villages and after reading some secret family documents about cooking tips and tricks in these families.

Declutter: 30 Simple Habits for Getting your Life, Schedule and Home Decluttered: An easier way to simplify your life, organize your home and make the … (Armin Bergmann’s 30 Simple Habits Book 5)
Do you feel overwhelmed by your day to day life? Does it seem like your to-do list grows perpetually longer rather than shorter? Do you long for life to be more simple and to have more time in your day? Could you use a little motivation and some practical advice to help you simplify your life, organize your home, and make the most of your time?
At some point after childhood (where time seems to always go slowly), life picks up pace. While we enjoy the experiences of adulthood, it can also become overwhelming as the weight of our responsibilities becomes apparent.
This can be exhausting and frustrating. Whether you are preparing for it, in the midst of the struggle, or feel like you are drowning, there are some simple habits, coupled with some stick-to-it attitudes that can help you get your life, home, and schedule de-cluttered.
In this concise book, I’ll show you 30 simple habits that are utilized all the time by people who strive for simplicity in their lives. The habits in this book aren’t magic. All I’m suggesting is that if you gradually implement these super simple habits into your routine, you’ll be pleased with how manageable your life will seem.
It may take some trial and error as you work to determine which habits will be most effective in your specific situation. You may also discover that a combination of multiple habits will help you make progress. Your individual personality coupled with the particular needs of your situation will help you determine which of these simple habits will work best for you. Consistency and the willingness to sacrifice momentary ease for the longterm good will be necessary.
I wish you all the best on your journey and I hope the content of this book provides the perfect spark of motivation that you need as you march down the road to being clutter-free.
Minimalism for Grandparents: Decluttering for Health, Happiness, and Connection in the Golden Years
The golden years should be a time of freedom, celebration, and new adventures. But if your garage, attic, closets, and surfaces are filled with clutter, all that extra stuff can get in the way of a full experience of life as it was meant to be lived. Minimalism for Grandparents covers not only techniques for decluttering, but how to fill your newfound space with meaningful, fulfilling activities that leave a lasting legacy for future generations.
This guide to simplifying for improved health, happiness, and relationships teaches:
• Why you should define your own sense of minimalism
• How to create your “Minimalist Mission Statement”
• How to find your decluttering “champion”
• How to use the techniques of “blazing” and “gazing” to declutter
• Why decluttering now can lead to a happier, healthier life
• How to deal with sentimental items without losing their meaning
• Why you should use your newfound space to leave a living legacy
And much more…
Reader Review; I truly enjoyed this book and walked away with a very different, and new, view of decluttering. It honestly made me think of decluttering in a new light and inspired me to act sooner rather than later. And to act in a different way. And with new reasons to act sooner rather than later.
The book flipped my concept of decluttering upside down, which is a bit of a surprise and a nice relief for me. Instead of an effort to discard, decluttering should be an effort to discover the meaningful items in my life and to give them prominence in the sacred spaces I should create for them. I hadn’t really thought much about pulling out the meaningful nuggets for legacy or about creating sacred space with the items that create the memories I want to hold on to. I tend to resist the stress of making the thousand decisions to discard, or not, in the decluttering process. I hadn’t considered that decluttering could be a treasure hunt, like a squirrel thrashing through a pile to find the good seeds, tossing the rest aside without giving it a second thought. I like this approach and have already started.
The path to decluttering should lead to treasure, not trash; to meaning and legacy, not loss. That’s the message I took away from “Minimalism for Grandparents”.
Keep It Simple Stupid! Cutting Back and Simplifying Your Life Like The True Minimalist Masters (Simplified Life Book 1)

It is a thoughtful book, and I can see several areas of my own life where I can simplify, declutter both my home and mind, and find even more contentment. Nicely done!

You are doing your housework wrong
For years, I’ve used a cleaning method that’s very efficient. I teach it in my successful book, The Easy Way To Clean.
Despite this, up until recently, I always found a large task daunting and intimidating.

It used to make me feel tired just looking at it.
Recently, something occurred to me. It changed the way I looked at household tasks. My mind is now completely relaxed when I approach any task. I tackle it with comfortable ease.
It’s all about the way you see it. There are also certain efficient processes I follow that allows me to complete each task a lot faster.

The Minimalist Mindset: How To Declutter, Downsize, And Get More Fulfillment From Life
Very good and concise book on getting control of your life. Most of the suggestions are common sense, and nothing that is hard to do, but not really many new ideas. It’s sort of like things you forgot that you already know.
With all that I think it is a very good book, and gives you good tips to organize your home and your life.

Subject to change without notice: Free Titles were free at the time I copied and pasted the links. But they don’t always stay free. Deals were reduced prices at time of listing, but these prices generally don’t last more than the day they were listed.
Same for reduced price titles.
Shameless money grubbing: I thought this was common knowledge, but it turns out it’s not- these are affiliate links. If you click on a free title and download it, I get….. nothing. If you click on a free title and while you are at Amazon also buy something else, I get….. something. Depending on what you buy, it will probably be somewhere between 4% and 7.5% of what you spend (I don’t get a percentage on penny sales) but I don’t pretend to understand how all of that side works.

Don’t have a Kindle? : You don’t have to have a Kindle to take advantage of these offers. You can read them on various free reading apps. I often read mine on my laptop if they are short enough books, even though I have two kindles. That’s because my kids keep taking off with the Kindles to read their school books and they don’t remember to recharge them before returning. I wouldn’t say I’m bitter about it, but I might be a little disgruntled. If you’re curious, this is the Kindle I have, and I have used others and mine remains my favorite. Mine has Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi and I don’t have commercial screensavers. The second Kindle is actually one I was given in exchange for some writing work, and I gave it to my two teens. It does not have 3G, which is why it’s their Kindle. Personally, I don’t like Kindle Fires because I am a crank like that.
If you like these free listings, you should also like my Facebook page, because I list other free titles there several times each week.
Yes, my Kindle gets slow because I stuff it too full. You can left click on a title on your Kindle anddelete it from your device, while still keeping it in your list of titles at Amazon in case you want to add it back to your Kindle later without paying for the title all over again. Don’t delete it from folder at Amazon unless you want to rid yourself of it permanently. Now that I have my tricksy little new phone, I have added it to my list of devices to which I can download devices. Woot!
