Earlier this year Amazon launched the Kindle First program, where Amazon Prime members can get one FREE Kindle book per month. It’s actually a pre-release book, which will be released to the general public the following month. Per usual, there are four books from which to choose.
Here are the Kindle First selections for August:
The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Homberg
Synopsis: Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she’s bonded to paper, that will be her only magic…forever.
Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined—animating paper creatures, bringing stories to life via ghostly images, even reading fortunes. But as she discovers these wonders, Ceony also learns of the extraordinary dangers of forbidden magic.
An Excisioner—a practitioner of dark, flesh magic—invades the cottage and rips Thane’s heart from his chest. To save her teacher’s life, Ceony must face the evil magician and embark on an unbelievable adventure that will take her into the chambers of Thane’s still-beating heart—and reveal the very soul of the man.
Portrait of a Girl by Dörthe Binkert
Synopsis: In the summer of 1896, a grand Swiss spa hotel becomes a refuge for Nika, a penniless beauty whose tortured past has left her unable to speak. While working in the manicured gardens, she becomes a muse to the celebrated painter Giovanni Segantini, who takes her under his wing.
Although he’s married, the two bond closely, and beneath his gaze Nika blossoms. She opens her heart to Segantini, serving as the muse for his luminous masterwork La Vanità, and through his patience recovers her voice. The secret between them is her sole material possession: a golden locket with clues to her mysterious heritage.
How will Nika learn the hidden secrets of the locket and uncover her origins? And what path awaits her once the facts are revealed? As her ties to Segantini grow ever more complex, her search for love and truth becomes as perilous as the quest for an alpine summit—and her destiny is rewritten on the journey.

This week for U.S. News’ The Frugal Shopper Blog I wrote about my 5 favorite places to get discounted prescription glasses, and over the course of researching that post I learned that both Firmoo AND Coastal currently have their free glass promotions available!
I have purchased glasses from both Coastal and Firmoo and recommend both companies. They are both great places to pick up affordable trendy glasses online! I do actually like their glasses, but regardless, you can’t beat a $0 price tag!
Both free glasses promotions are only valid for new customers. Both promotions will only be valid for a limited time, though I’m not sure of an end date. If you’re interested, I definitely recommend ordering sooner than later!
NOTE: You will need to have your current eyeglass prescription on hand before ordering. I just feel like I should state the obvious.
To get free glasses from Coastal you will need to select a pair of qualified frames. It appears there are 608 styles from which to choose, so likely something for everybody! The glasses I ordered from Coastal are no longer the correct prescription, but I had a pair of chunky black frames that I LOVED.
Coastal Coupon: Use code “FIRSTPAIRFREE” at checkout to receive the free prescription lenses. If the price doesn’t decrease to $0, I would double check to recommend that you chose one of the frames included in the promotion.
You will still be responsible for shipping, which currently appears to be $9.95 per order. Glasses ship within 5-7 business days.
I only recently discovered Firmoo, but I am definitely a fan! I have two pairs of glasses from Firmoo and they’re in constant rotation. (Check out my Firmoo Review)
Firmoo only has 9 pairs of frames that are currently free to new users, but there are some really cute styles!
Firmoo Coupon: Use code “FREEFIRMOO” at checkout to receive your first pair of prescription glasses for free.
Standard shipping costs just $6.95, but be warned that Firmoo glasses ship from China and you may wait up to a month for your glasses to arrive. That’s not too bad for a spare pair, but if you’re desperate it’s probably not ideal.
