Interested in reading about horses?

This blog is all about horse books which are available on Amazon, mainly as eBooks for your Kindle but there are also paper books as well. Each day, free eBooks are updated for that day - grab them quick (no limit on the number given away on the day it is free). If you don't have a Kindle but want a free Kindle reading app from Amazon, click the link below (yes, it is free). It only takes a few minutes to get one on your computer, laptop, Android, iPhone or iPad and allows you to access the million or so eBooks available on Amazon. All links on this blog are safe ones which will only take you to Amazon.



Please let your friends and forums know about this blog - the more books that can be given away, the more the authors are promoted, which is why they agree to make them free for a few days. (And if you don't have a Kindle... consider one - I bought one for me, one for my daughter and a third for my 75 year old mother, and I linked the accounts so that every book I buy or pick up for free can be put on any or all Kindles. All of us love our Kindles!)

FREE eBOOKS TODAY - APRIL 30

These eBooks are free to download today. If you don't have a Kindle, you can either buy one from Amazon using the links on this page (all links go to Amazon for safe shopping) or you can download a free Kindle reading app for your computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, Android, etc. from the link in the banner at the top of this page.

Horses Of The Sun is free today and tomorrow as part of a promotion for the new book, Horses Of The Light (in the box over on the right of the page), which was released yesterday. Horses Of The Sun is the introductory book to The Outback Riders series and is 36,000 words - a fairly short and easy to read book about young teens growing up in the outback of Australia. Aimed at the 8 - 14 year old market but is very popular with adults who like a good read that doesn't contain sex, swearing, zombies or vampires. Horses Of The Light is $3.99 and is twice as long at 70,000 words and develops the characters and story line as they struggle to survive a dangerous situation while hunting the mysterious Min Min lights.

Free today: Horses Of The Sun.

FREE eBOOKS APRIL 29

These eBooks are free today (well, free at the time of writing - always check that the prices are still $0.00 when you look at the books and before downloading them). For details on why they are free and how to get them, have a look at some previous posts. Also, check back over some of the features on horse books in the archives - some great bargains and some of the best horse books available as eBooks and paper books.

For two days, I'm offering Horses Of The Sun for free to celebrate the release of the new book in The Outback Riders series, Horses Of The Light (you can find the link to this new book over on the right of the page... it still has its 'working cover' at the moment, but it should soon change to the final cover to match the cover on the first book).  Aimed at 8 - 14 year old readers, Horses Of The Sun is the first in The Outback Riders series and introduces us to the four outback children who have to overcome difficulties and tragedy, but their humour and resilience carries them through. It is only 36,000 words long (100 print pages) so is an easy read for younger readers. In Horses Of The Light, we see the romance between Amy and Brandon begin to grow as, once more, they are faced with events that could kill them, but they use all their outback know-how to outsmart the three escaped criminals who threaten their lives, and have an unforgettable experience with the mysterious Min Min lights. At 70,000 words, it is twice the length of the first book.
Horses Of The Sun - free to download today!

FREE eBOOKS, MONDAY APRIL 23

These eBooks are free to download today. If you don't have a Kindle (why not?), you can download a free Kindle reading app for your computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, etc. from the banner at the top of the page so you can build your library of free eBooks... and buy some occasionally. Authors often promote their eBooks by giving them away for a day or two, and I try and find any that relate to horses (sometimes just a horse on the cover) as well as some others that have good reviews. There are also features on horse books (digital and paper) if you look back over the posts and archives - some features on dressage, reining, training, western, showing, etc. with books that can be bought and downloaded as eBooks or as paper versions which will arrive in the mail (some great prices with some on special). So you can also build up your library of paper books here as well.  All links on this blog take you to Amazon, a very safe place to shop on line. I'm in Australia and I buy there frequently, with most items arriving as fast as if I'd bought them here.

Books that have something to do with horses, starting with one of Dr Ann Nyland's books... make sure you have a look at some of Ann's other books as well (she's written a LOT of them), some great reading from a fellow Australian:

SOME TOP SELLING HORSE BOOKS

Today's free eBooks are in the post below this one.  These books and eBooks are some of the top selling horse books on Amazon. Some are available as both books (paper - sent to you in the mail) and eBooks (digital form which you can download in seconds), and when you open the links to each book you'll see the various formats on offer. Also, many are available second hand at a fraction of the new price.

If you don't have a Kindle (why?) you can buy one from one of the Amazon links here, or download a free (yes, free) Kindle reading app from the banner at the top of the page for your computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, etc. Read the last 'free today' post for more information about why they're free, etc. etc.

Sorry I didn't update over the weekend but we took Duffy (Days Of Gold. 9yo Perlino Quarter Horse stallion) to a hack show where - for once - they allowed stallions to compete in hack classes. There were lots of lovely bay, black, brown and chestnut Warmbloods, Thoroughbreds, various derivatives, etc. there and only one Quarter Horse stallion, who certainly stood out. Here are some of the hacks (over 15 hands - the galloway and pony hacks were in another ring) lining up for one of the early classes of the day. If you look right down the far end, you might be able to see Duffy.  He won this class.


Our daughter rode him, as usual, and did a wonderful job and they won most of their classes and took out Supreme Hack of the Show, which was fantastic. So no Good Horse Books for a few days.

FREE eBOOKS TODAY

Yes, the eBooks in this post are totally free to download! (These words are repeated from a previous post explaining how to download, etc. Repeat visitors won't need to read it as they've read it before) The authors offer them free for a day or two as part of their promotions to increase sales - they hope to give away thousands of books and get some good reviews and star ratings in return if people like them (to be honest, some of the free books I've really enjoyed, some have only lasted a chapter or so before I deleted them... I'm very fussy about the quality of writing (I have a Masters in Education, and I'm an English teacher), so I do try to only have good books in my 'non-horse book' section each day, but the first section, with books that relate to horses in some way, may get some ordinary ones through as I'm usually desperate to find a few that have something to do with horses. free kindle books, find your free kindle books, free eBooks, Kindle eBooks, Kindle horse books, good horse books
Just remember that most of the eBooks are free for a short time only, so check that the price is still $0.00 before downloading it, as some may come back to their full price during the day.  Since some books cost up to $24.95, the most expensive 'freebie' we've had here, it's worth checking that they are still $0.00... if you accidentally download one and find you had to pay for it because you forgot to check that it was still $0.00, no problem - just return it for a refund (Amazon allow you to do that).

The eBooks (or 'electronic books' or digital books) can be downloaded to your Kindle. If you don't have a Kindle, you can easily buy one from the links over on the right - I'm in Australia and I've bought three from Amazon and they arrive quickly and set up ready to use. If you don't want to buy a Kindle but still want to read, you can get a free Kindle reading app from the banner at the top of the page for your computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, etc. free Kindle books, best Kindle free eBooks, best horse books on Kindle, horse books on Amazon, free Kindle books, free Kindle eBooks
Please share this site with your friends on facebook and on forums - I do it for free but it feels good to see people access the site each day (at present, only about 100 people a day come here to download books and I hope that builds to thousands as surely people love getting something for free!) it helps the authors who are doing the free promotions and it's a way to promote reading and to allow people to build up big libraries of books about all sorts of things. free Kindle books, books free on Kindle, free eBooks, new eBooks, best sellers on Kindle, good horse books,
Also, look back over past posts to find features on books about dressage, reining, barrel racing, showing, children's horse books and gifts that relate to horses. I'm buying a lot through Amazon now - prices are great, they arrive quickly, and the range is fantastic... they are doing to retail what ebay did to auctions.

TODAY'S FREE eBOOKS

These eBooks are free to download at present. Just check that the price is still $0.00 when you look at them, before downloading. Most of yesterday's free eBooks are STILL free today, so instead of repeating them, have a look at yesterday's post and if you like any of the books, check that they are still $0.00.

If you're new here, have a look back at some of the 'free today' posts over past days/weeks to find out why and how they are free - no catches, they are free and you can build a library of thousands of eBooks worth many thousands of dollars all for free, with books that can cost up to $49.99 each in print form.

I will repeat Dr Ann Nyland's book about how to go about caring for a rescue horse because it is a great opportunity to obtain a book by a noted author for free - and Ann really, really cares about horses and would love to think that her book is helping some horses somewhere in the world, even if it means she earns no money from it on these free days. Of course, you can go and buy some of her other amazing books - she has dozens of them. I'll probably repeat other free horse eBooks as well, as there's not usually a huge amount of them available... but do check yesterday's free eBooks as most of those are still free today.

And remember - there are other wonderful eBooks, paper books and horse related gift items to buy, so if you ever want a treat for yourself or a present for a friend, have a look at through some of our other posts over past days, weeks and months to find some great buys.

SOME GREAT EASTER READING

Today's free eBooks are in the post below this one.  These eBooks are not free, but their prices are reasonable and they are very popular and have good reviews.

Spirit Horses - it was free last week for a day and I've read it already... there were a few places where the text did not flow easily, but it was a great read and I couldn't put it down. Well worth the $2.99 (and the author really knows horses - excellent details about handling horses).

Dark Horse is an enjoyable murder/mystery read, and only 99c - great value for that price! As a horse person, I found a few little points that weren't quite correct, but managed to ignore them to enjoy the 'who dunnit' tale.

Greatness and Goodness: Barbaro is only $8.99 in digital form - considering you'll pay $29.99 for the paper version, that's a great saving. A very popular book and of particular interest to anyone who likes racehorses.

Secretariat's Meadow is another beauty - yes, those who love racehorses will be really interested, but you can just enjoy a good book and still appreciate this one. $9.99 (but that's a big saving on it's $29.99 print price).

The Dressage Chronicles are very popular - and the $9.99 Kindle price is about a $10 saving off the print price

For The Love Of The Horse is another great read at only 99c - a huge saving on the $17.95 print price

Horses Of The Sun is the first in the series of The Outback Riders - an easy and exciting read for children, young adults as well as adults with an emotional edge that will sweep you up into the outback saga. Only $2.99.


Flame The Fire Horse is a collection of short stories about horses. Only $1.99 and a great read for horse lovers of all ages, particularly younger readers.

These eBooks are free to download at the time of writing - just check that they are still $0.00 when you look at them (some will be free for several days, some will only be free for a day). For information about how to get them or why they're free, read some past 'free today' posts - it's just a way author's promote their books, no catches, and some of the books go on to be best sellers.

Books that have something to do with horses:


I usually only have the Amazon links here as they are easy to do - all in the one place - but here's a link to a great book which is free at present over on Smashwords. Dr A. Nyland's wonderful book, Horse and Donkey Worms and Worming. Dr A. Nyland is our very own Ann Nyland from Armidale who owns and breeds gorgeous Arabian horses (and now has a 'niece' of our two stallions, Days Of Gold and Nights Of Gold) and writes some great horse books... she's just told me that her How To Care For A Rescue Horse book will be free some time tomorrow on Kindle, so I'm keeping an eye out for that. Ann is a totally amazing person and is one of the world's leading translators of ancient texts as she is able to bring them into modern English without losing the original intent or tone of the authors' words and she does not need to modify, alter or 'tweak' them to suit the desires of a particular religion or employer (many ancient Hebrew, Greek or Latin texts have been translated with a slant to match the views of whoever pays for the translation,  usually a particular religion, but Ann does them with unbiased academic expertise.) If you are interested in any of her other books - and I found one of them free today (last book below), then search around Amazon for, 'Dr A Nyland' or 'Ann Nyland' and find dozens of them!

SOME GREAT GIFT IDEAS

Today's free eBooks are in the post below this one (make sure you check that the prices are still $0.00 as some may have gone off the free list since I put that post up 12 hours ago).
Here are some wonderful gift ideas. All links take you to Amazon. I haven't bought all of these, but I've bought a few of the books and some of the Laurel Burch items (just LOVE them!!!). Sometimes the links change from being delivered to Australia to 'do not deliver to your area', so apologies if any have changed since I bookmarked them some weeks back or since I bought from them. Amazon delivers quick all over the U.S. and to Australia and N.Z. - you won't be charged if they can't deliver to your area even if it takes you all the way through to the check out before it says, "can't deliver to your shipping address".  So have a look around - any link simply takes you to the information page about that product on Amazon, and you can look at other items there.
Some books to buy.



Some other great gift ideas - the Laurel Burch bag is half price - I bought this one a few weeks back and totally love it - so well made and the colours are incredible! I also bought BOTH the Indigo Horses scarf (blue) - also beautiful (and there's only one left) as well as the Mythical Horses (green) scarf, so if you want a gorgeous scarf for yourself or a gift, I totally recommend these:


FREE eBOOKS TODAY

These eBooks are free to download today.  Always check that the price is still $0.00 before actually downloading them as many are only free for a day or two and then revert to their normal price - if you accidentally download one that is no longer free, you can easily click another button to get a refund from Amazon and 'return' (delete) the eBook. Most days there are up to $100 of free eBooks here - I try to find any books that have anything to do with horses, but that's not always possible, so I also have a selection of books that have nothing to do with horses but they are highly rated so they are worth downloading if you like the sound of them.

Have a look at past posts to find out why they're free and learn that there really isn't a catch - it's just a way authors promote their eBooks. If you don't have a Kindle (love 'em - have three in my house: my 75 year old mum won't go anywhere without hers these days) you can buy one from the links over on the right - they arrive quickly, set up for you. If you don't want to buy a Kindle, you can get a FREE Kindle reading app for your computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, etc. from the banner at the top of this page.
