Free books, but please will somebody offer free time

So many books and so little time to read them all... I'm not sure when I'll find time for them, but I'm loading my kindle with more wondrous words today, hopping over to World Literary Cafe to browse their shelves of kindle books free today, then off to find a free kindle copy of Redemption Day (which I'll soon be reviewing).

For anyone wondering, Redemption Day is free from now till April 19 for a very special reason. April 19th might not be well-known like 9/11 or 12/7, but it's an important day in America's recent history of violence...

...the day in 1985 when 399 federal officers surrounded Jim Ellison's compound in Northern Arkansas, later convicting Ellison on conspiracy and weapons charges

... the day in 1993 when the FBI stormed the Branch Davidian complex outside Waco Texas, seeking their leader on illegal weapons charges


... the day in 1994 when Linda Thomspon called for armed citizens to assemble in Washington DC

... and the day in 1995 when one of Ellison's followers was put to death for murder, twelve hours after Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols ignited a truck bomb in Oklahoma City.

It should certainly be an interesting book and I'll plan to post reviews as soon as I've read it. But first I'll have to finish Sela, a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy novel and the sequel to Redheart, which I reviewed a year ago. I just found a site offering a chance to win both books if you're interested, http://azuredwarf.blogspot.com/2012/03/sela-by-jackie-gamber-giveaway-sequel.html. Lucky winners!

Meanwhile, does anyone know of a site where I can buy some free time for reading?
