    As with hundred zeros, I find that a number of the books are not free unless you are a prime member, and it is easier to get a complete list by searching on amazon woth lowest price first. And I and impressed by the Win Kindle viewer thing though it doesn't show all titles.

      thanks for the input. Sorting on Amazon with lowest items first is a good item but I am afraid a lot of people don't know/think about it when looking for free books

    I found ikiMap very useful, but we have to register. Ifakesiri is really awesome, everyone should bookmark it. Hundred Zeros is also very useful, I don't know that kind of site really exists! I really liked all these sites. Thanks!
