Free or discounted Kindle bread ebooks, #3.
Starting a 3rd thread to keep scrolling manageable. Previous post is at: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/66005/free-or-discounted-kindle-bread-books-2
The 1st post in the series is at: www.thefreshloaf.com/node/61480/free-or-discounted-kindle-bread-books
I intend this post and comments to give Fresh Loafers a heads-up when bread-baking or pizza Kindle ebooks go on sale at Amazon for either heavily discounted prices, up to usually $4.99, or free.
I'll start off with five books that are always (at least have been for a while) free. Three 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 1 day to a week, so act quickly. Most often the sales run Monday through Sunday. 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."
Dr. Price, of baking powder fame, was the grandfather of actor Vincent Price. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincent_Price
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: Mrs. Wilson's Cook Book, Kindle edition.
This book is in the public domain. Copyright 1920. Has a chapter on breads. Measurements in cups. Oven temps are inexact. Good for some historical or traditional recipes, if nothing else.
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.
Free: "Grandma's Best Quick Breads" by Marg Ruttan. https://www.amazon.com/Grandmas-Best-Quick-Breads-Recipes-ebook/dp/B00Q23M2BE
Only 47 pages. It has been a while since I downloaded it, so I forget my opinion of it. But I did not file it in the "junk" collection. Therefore, I thought it was at least worth the time to download it.
