By Steve Windwalker

Ever since we first began posting free Kindle book listings — when was that, sometime in the 70s? — our readers have written in from time to time with requests that we make it possible search and sort these lists by category. We’ve tried manual approaches which haven’t really worked, but now we’ve got some great news!

In our ongoing effort to make Kindle Nation the best and most useful site it can possibly be for the greatest readers in the world — yep, I’m talking to you — we invested a while back in bringing on a terrific development team to turn the reader request into a reality. There are other very cool things on the way, believe me, but today I am thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new Free Kindle Book Tool that allows readers unprecedented features for searching and sorting among the Kindle Store’s ever-growing offering of free contemporary titles, including:

Karen Cantwell, this week's Kindle Nation sponsor
  • multiple category search by our most popular categories, with more to come, as well as a complete list that shows all free contemporary titles; and
  • the ability to sort any of these category or complete lists in ascending or descending order by Bestselling, Reader Review Ratings, or Date Added.

And I think this is the right place for me to extend a huge thank you to all the authors and publishers who have sponsored Kindle Nation over the past year. Just in case it is not manifestly clear, it is our sponsors’ past, present and future support that has enabled us to invest in bringing such cool features to Kindle Nation, and I urge and encourage you to give their books a try whenever you are able and interested.

This week’s newsletter, for instance, is sponsored by a terrific novelist named Karen Cantwell, whose novel Take the Monkeys and Run has already proven a favorite with Kindle Nation readers and is guaranteed — at just 99 cents — to deliver one of the best returns on investment you’ll ever find in the Kindle Store when it comes to hitting the sweet spot at the intersection of Humor and Whodunit.

Here’s our current listing of Category choices, and we will be adding additional categories and other brand new features in the future:
