Free or discounted Kindle bread books.
I intend this post and comments to give Fresh Loafers heads-up when bread-baking Kindle ebooks go on sale at Amazon for either heavily discounted prices or free. They sell for $.99 to $3.99.
I'll start off with three books that are always (at least have been for a while) free. Two are public domain.
As new books go on sale I will (or you can) add them to the comments. I mostly get these notifications from a service at bookbub.com. The sales usually last from 3 days to a couple months, so act quickly. The "tag" with "frog" in it, is so the webmaster can make a few pennies in commission, like his sidebar links.
All the major bread authors have sales, Robertson, Reinhart, Forkish, etc.
For a longer list of what I've already picked up, and how much I paid, and a very very short review, see my post at: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/61370/my-breadpizza-library-kindle-and-hard-copy

Free: The New Dr. Price Cookbook, Kindle Edition, by New York Royal Baking Powder Company.
Public domain. The bread and rolls in this book are all leavened with baking powder. No yeast, no sourdough. Dated. Almost all volumetric measurements. Inexact oven temps, such as "medium oven" or "hot oven."
Free: Woman's Institute Library of Cookery Volume 1: Essentials of Cookery; Cereals; Bread; Hot Breads, Kindle Edition, by Woman's Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences.
Also dated, but interesting. Hey, it's free.
Free: How to Bake: The Art and Science of Baking, Kindle Edition, by Dennis Weaver.
Modern. A very comprehensive baking book with yeasted dough and baking powder. A little bit on sourdough. Explains the uses of oil, egg, milk in baking. He kind of uses it as an advertisement for his company, but still informative. Great for beginners.
