Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alert, Saturday, October 16: More Free Kindle Games plus the next book in Danny's read-aloud queue, Samantha Hunter's's Past Tense (Today's Sponsor), and over 100 more fully updated and category-sorted free Kindle ebook listings

Up until about 1980, the only person I had ever seen playing solitaire was my grandmother. She used to sit at the counter in her and my grandfather's East Dixfield General Store and Filling Station for an hour every day during Gramps' afternoon nap and play solitaire for an hour straight. Then Gramps would come back to work and she would go back into the house and spread her cards on the kitchen table. But in the past 30 years, with the coming of personal computers and many of the devices that have followed, there are tens of millions of people spending hundreds of millions of hours playing Solitaire. With all due respect to my Grammie, who I loved dearly, it's fair to say that Solitaire has become the greatest time-suck in history. And, as Betty could tell you, I am not immune to it. 

So I should not be surprised that yesterday, when I devoted most of an entire post to the new Triple Town for Kindle strategy game, it was EA Solitaire for Kindle -- also new, more expensive, and mention in passing in my post -- that was most popular both with the citizens of Planet iPad, Kindle Nation and also with ebook readers at large as it jumped into Stieg Larsson territory as the #3 paid "title" in the Kindle Store.

But I've been told that time is money, that money can buy you time, and that playing solitaire can turn your mind to oatmeal, which Grammie always told me would stick to my ribs better than Sugar Smacks, so today we'll lead our listing of free contemporary titles with three free Kindle games....

But first ... a word from our sponsor....

If you're like me and you've been reading great mysteries set in Boston for decades, perhaps you'll agree that after all the great Spenser tales and Dennis Lehane yarns, it's time for something new. And what could be more of a departure from the past than a Boston sleuth who reads tarot cards as her day job!

Tarot reader Sophie Turner must solve the murder of her friend, a wealthy Boston socialite. Not an easy task when she's also the prime suspect.  Finding the truth will demand that Sophie face the secrets of her own tragic past, something that will change her life forever.

Sophie Turner runs Talismans, a Boston tarot parlor, where she reads tarot and keeps her family's psychic legacy alive. However, in spite of her tragic family history and Tarot Alley's reputation for being a mystical hotspot, Sophie has no psychic powers of her own - or so she thinks. Engaged to straight-as-an-arrow Boston PD Detective Roger Paris, and finishing her college degree in Computer Science, she's ready to start a brand new life that has nothing to do with her paranormal past.

When the murder of her friend and client Patrice Bledsoe leaves Sophie traumatized, she can't trust her own memory about what happened. She remembers a ghostly encounter moments before Patrice was killed, but she can't remember anything about the murder, making her a prime suspect. Sophie doesn't understand why the ghost appeared or why she was compelled to read his cards, revealing a story of violence and betrayal, but she is determined to find the truth about her friend's murder.

It's not the last time Sophie sees the tragic ghost figure, and she begins to believe her ghost is real when she's plagued with visions she can't ignore. When her skeptical fiancé won't listen, she asks ghost hunter Dr. Gabe Mason for his help, leading her down a path of no return in more ways than one.
