Gift Shopper Pro: Today's Free App, Plus Our Book of the Day: Graceling

The response to yesterday's software update for the Kindle Fire has been overwhelmingly positive (still missing 6.2.1? Grab it HERE). It may not have given us everything we want, and I'm sure there are more updates in the works, but it's a solid step in the right direction. It may have even inspired a few people to take advantage of the great offer available for FREE 2-Day Shipping on any Kindle, which lasts until 8pm EST tonight! If you've been hoping for a price cut on the Fire, that's the best you're going to get.

Continuing with the 25 Days of Free Holiday Music, today we have "This I have Done for My One True Love" by Chanticleer.

If you're still shopping, today's free app could be great for you, and don't forget about Amazon's Top Holiday Deals. Our discounted book of the day today, Graceling, is wildly popular and highly recommended.

Title: Graceling
Rating: 4.3 over 463 reviews
Price: $9.99 0.99
Description:  In this debut fantasy novel, Cashore treats readers to compelling and eminently likable characters and a story that draws them in from the first paragraph. In Katsa's world, the "Graced," those gifted in a particular way, are marked by eyes that are different colors. Katsa's Grace is that she is a gifted fighter, and, as such, she is virtually invincible. She is in the service of her tyrannical uncle, king of one of the seven kingdoms, and she is forced to torture people for infractions against him. She has secretly formed the Council, which acts in the service of justice and fairness for those who have been accused and abused. Readers meet her as she is rescuing the father of the Lienid king, who has been abducted. The reasons for his capture are part of a tightening plot that Katsa unravels and resolves, with the help of Prince Po, the captive's grandson. He has his own particular Grace, and he becomes Katsa's lover and partner in what becomes a mortally dangerous mission. Cashore's style is exemplary: while each detail helps to paint a picture, the description is always in the service of the story, always helping readers to a greater understanding of what is happening and why. This is gorgeous storytelling: exciting, stirring, and accessible. Fantasy and romance readers will be thrilled
