Since treating myself to a Kindle I have published several Kindle books. They are an eclectic mix so check back from time to time to see what else has been added.
Joseph Marlow 1758-1824 with 6 generations of his descendants
This was my first foray into Kindle publishing. It contains the information from this site relating to Joseph Marlow and his descendants. The purpose was to find a satisfactory way of displaying genealogical data on the Kindle and, ultimately, to produce a program so that other people could create Kindle books of their own research to carry with them.
It is very cheap as I want to encourage family historians to check it out and give feedback on the layout and usefulness of the idea.
Reliques of Ancient English Poetry
This is an extensive collection of early English and Scottish ballads and songs, first published in 1765. It was written by Bishop Thomas Percy who also appears on this site.
Percy's Reliques was a popular and influential work that was
credited with inspiring poets such as Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William
Letters by the late Frances Ridley Havergal
The lovely hymn "Take my life and let it be Consecrated, Lord, to Thee" was just one of many hymns and poems written by Frances Ridley Havergal. She was a passionate and committed Christian who thought deeply about her faith as is shown by many of the letters in this volume.
Under His Shadow, and, Kept for the Master's Use
"Under His Shadow: the Last Poems" contains the manuscript works left by Frances Ridley Havergal at her death.
Frances had earlier told her sister that her third volume of poems was to be called "Under His Shadow", and that she thought the book would be her "nunc dimittis".
"Kept for the Master's Use" is a devotional book based on the hymn "Take my Life". Each chapter takes a couplet from the hymn and considers what it means to put it into practice, and how that consecration can be maintained. The final chapter looks at the consecration that Jesus made of Himself.
Bulldog Drummond at Bay
This is one of a series of adventure books written by Sapper (H. C. McNeile) between the two world wars. They were hugely popular when they were written, spawning several films.
They are still fun to read!
