Okay, you’ve just placed your last-minute orders for Kindles for all your loved ones, with Amazon’s nifty free one-day shipping deal for Kindle orders in the continental US.

You’re full of the Christmas spirit, and all you are lacking is some great Christmas music, and all that’s left in your checking account is five bucks.
Not to worry.
You can use that last $5 to download The 99 Most Essential Christmas Masterpieces now, exclusively from Amazon, and within minutes be listening — right on your Kindle! — to the tracks you choose from nearly six hours of great music. 
The Kindle MP3 player plays music and podcasts in non-DRM .mp3 format. While it might be nice if you can purchase such content and have it sent wirelessly to your Kindle, audio file sizes and transfer speeds make this unlikely. However, it’s easier and cheaper than you may think to purchase reading-friendly background music, transfer it to your Kindle, and start listening.
While it’s possible to purchase the individual tracks for 89 cents each, you can spend a total of $5.00 and get all 99 tracks, ranging in length from under a minute to longer than 16 minutes, just by clicking on the orange “Buy MP3 album with 1-click” button near the upper-right corner of your computer screen. Amazon will begin downloading the album almost immediately, perhaps after asking you to enable the Amazon downloader tool to work on your computer if you haven’t done so already. Keep track of where your computer saves the album download. This will usually be in a folder or directory called “Music” that is associated with your default audio program such as iTunes or Windows Media Player.
Once the album downloads to your computer, plug your Kindle into your computer via the USB cable. From within your computer’s “Finder” or “My Computer” feature, locate the music files that were just downloaded, select the tracks that you want to copy to your Kindle, and pick them up with the Copy command. (Important Note: Remember that audio files require more storage capacity than text, and don’t overdo it. I recommend that you choose a dozen or two of the tracks you think you’ll enjoy the most and copy them rather than trying to store all 99 tracks on your Kindle!) 
Next, go to the Kindle folder from your computer’s “Finder” or “My Computer” structure, open it, and then open the subfolder called “music” Use your system’s Paste command to paste the music tracks into your Kindle’s “music” folder, eject the Kindle from your computer, and you are ready to enjoy some nice background music as you read. Just press Home to go to the Kindle 2 Home screen, press Menu, then use the 5-way to select “Experimental” and “Play MP3” from the next two menus that appear on your Kindle display. 

(Note:  Alternatively, if you’d prefer to listen to tracks one at a time with greater control of your Kindle’s playback, copy them to your Kindle’s “audible” folder rather than the “music” folder.)

Free Today in the Kindle Store, from Scholastic Press: Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson (Grades 7-12)

As Amazon continues its efforts to turn the attention of young readers to the Kindle Store, we can expect to see more promotions like this one from Scholastic Press: Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson (Grades 7-12).

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up—Johnson certainly seems to have the formula for good, clean, readable chick-lit down pat, and this title does not disappoint. According to tradition, when the Martin children turn 15, they inherit a suite in the family’s small Manhattan hotel and a job: to take care of the rooms and their occupant. On Scarlett’s 15th birthday, Amy Amberson sweeps into the suite that Scarlett has just inherited. The woman is demanding and brash, but she does have her charms (and large amounts of cash). In the beginning, Scarlett is overwhelmed, but then her role becomes that of Mrs. Amberson’s assistant for her projects, which change on a whim. When Amy decides to help the theater troupe that Scarlett’s brother is involved in put on Hamlet, the teen begins a romance with one of the actors. Then everything starts to go awry, and when things get tough, Amy abandons ship, and plucky Scarlett is left to step in and save what needs saving, something that she does with flair. Scarlett’s brand of humor is particularly dry and well articulated. This novel blends sibling rivalry and the importance of family, friendship, and romance into a plot that is charming and well delivered.—Emily Garrett Cassady, North Garland High School, Garland, TX

From Booklist

*Starred Review* The Hopewell Hotel, 75 years ago a stylish Upper East Side haunt, has fallen on hard times. Its proprietors, the Martin family, have let the last remaining employee go, and now it’s up to the four children, Spencer, Lola, Scarlett, and Marlene, to keep things afloat. Enter one Mrs. Amy Amberson, a flamboyant, mysterious guest, back in New York after a long absence, with some clandestine motives. Mrs. Amberson is to occupy the Empire Suite, just today entrusted to Scarlett as a “present” on her fifteenth birthday (a family tradition), for the entire summer, and keeping her happy will test Scarlett’s ingenious mettle. What follows is some utterly winning, madcap Manhattan farce, crafted with a winking, urbane narrative and tight, wry dialogue. Beneath the silvered surface, Johnson delivers a complex sibling relationship. Like the Hilary McKay’s Casson quartet, first introduced in Saffy’s Angel (2002), these siblings are bound by tender, poignant connections, all the more real for the absurdity of their circumstances. We can only hope that they, too, return for more intrepid adventures. Grades 7-12. –Thom Barthelmess
