Butter Lion Memo: Today's free app, and our book of the day: On Gold Mountain

I have to say that after posting our response to the New York Times yesterday, the outpouring of support for the Kindle Fire has been amazing. We loved hearing from people who loved their Fires and are excited to see how Amazon makes them even better. This device does so many things easily and has the backing of a great company behind it.

Today's addition to the 25 Days of Free Holiday Music is Deck the Halls by 11 Acorn Lane. One of my favorites!

Yesterday's 10 cent apps are still on sale, but only until about noon today. Get them while you can! The list: Doodle Jump, Block Breaker 3, Roll in the Hole, Flight Control, Super KO Knockout, When I Get Bigger (children's book), and Blow Up.

The genius of Butter Lion Memo lies in its simplicity. Don't look for any elaborate dating, sorting, tagging, or highlighting features in this app--you won't find them. There's no color coding, no keywording, no special interface needed.

Today's book of the day is a highly rated memoir. Take a look!

Title: On Gold Mountain
Rating: 4.3 over 61 reviews
Price: $8.99 1.99
Description:  Lisa See, daughter of novelist Carolyn See, brings a novelist's skill to this sprawling ancestral history. Books tracing the roots of overseas Chinese writers are not uncommon these days, but See uncovered in her family tree a capsule history of the Sino-American diaspora: her great-grandfather, Fong See, founded a California business, married a Caucasian woman and fathered many offspring, and returned periodically to China to redistribute some of his wealth and launch another family. See, a Publishers Weekly writer, has conducted extensive interviews and drawn on family lore for an enthralling saga of ambition, prejudice, love, loyalty, and sorrow--social history at its best.
Get On Gold Mountain!
