Don’t forget your Kindle when you are spring cleaning.
Jesse Doogan, an editor at Tyndale House, prepared a list to give guidance for our e-readers. The first step is take stock of what you have on your Kindle – books, apps, music, videos or audiobooks. You might be surprised how many items are on your device.
The next thing I would do is delete – permanently delete samples you’ve downloaded, clippings you don’t need, letters from Amazon, anything you don’t need that is cluttering your Kindle.
Archive the books you have read. You can reload them at any time so you don’t need them to keep them on your device.
Remove audiobooks you have finished. Remove the apps that didn’t turn out as expected. Send them packing.
Review your to-be-read list. Do you need to remove a few titles that no longer interest you? Did you recently download a bestseller you want to move up the list? Spring clean your TBR list to suit your current interests and don’t feel guilty.
If you have extra time:
• Write reviews of books you have recently read.
• Update your collections to better suit your needs
• Go to the Manage Your Content and Devices page at Amazon, deleting and updating titles
You’ve worked hard on your cleaning. Take a break and enjoy your fresh-as-springtime Kindle.

Meet Kolt Raynor. A Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, he is still trying to make sense of his life—and duty—after a secret mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders—one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.
A shadowy group of former colleagues has asked Raynor to return, alone, to Pakistan’s badlands. His assignment seems clear: find his missing men and bring them home. What Raynor never expected was to uncover a sinister al Qaeda plot to capture a Black Site–a secret U.S. prison–and destabilize the region. Meanwhile, a ruthless, unknown enemy is on his trail…and he will stop at nothing to make sure that Raynor’s mission is not accomplished.

In Farmacology, practicing family physician and renowned nutrition explorer Daphne Miller brings us beyond the simple concept of “food as medicine” and introduces us to the critical idea that it’s the farm where that food is grown that offers us the real medicine.
In Farmacology you will meet:
• a vegetable farmer in Washington State who shows us how the principles he uses to rejuvenate his soil apply just as well to our own bodies. Here we also discover the direct links between healthy soil and healthy humans.
• a beef farmer in Missouri who shows how a holistic cattle-grazing method can grow resilient calves and resilient children.
• an egg farmer in Arkansas who introduces us to the counterintuitive idea that stress can keep us productive and healthy. We discover why the stressors associated with a pasture-based farming system are beneficial to animals and humans while the duress of factory farming can make us ill.
In each chapter, Farmacology reveals the surprising ways that the ecology of our body and the ecology of our farms are intimately linked. This is a paradigm-changing adventure that has huge implications for our personal health and the health of the planet. You can purchase this book for only $1.99 today.

Stalin’s Soviet Union strives to be a paradise for its workers, providing for all of their needs. One of its fundamental pillars is that its citizens live free from the fear of ordinary crime and criminals.
But in this society, millions do live in fear . . . of the State. Death is a whisper away. The mere suspicion of ideological disloyalty sends millions of innocents into the Gulags or to their executions. Defending the system from its citizens is the MGB, the State Security Force. And no MGB officer is more courageous, conscientious, or idealistic than Leo Demidov.
A war hero with a beautiful wife, Leo lives in relative luxury in Moscow. His only ambition has been to serve his country. For this greater good, he has arrested and interrogated.
Then the impossible happens. A different kind of criminal-a murderer-is on the loose, killing at will. At the same time, Leo finds himself demoted and denounced by his enemies, his world turned upside down, and every belief he’s ever held shattered. The only way to save his life and the lives of his family is to uncover this criminal.
But in a society that is officially paradise, it’s a crime against the State to suggest that a murderer-much less a serial killer-is in their midst. Exiled from his home, with only his wife, Raisa, remaining at his side, Leo must confront the vast resources and reach of the MBG to find and stop a criminal that the State won’t admit even exists.
