Hot Donut: Today's Free App, Plus Book of the Day: The Handmaid's Tale

It was sort of a funny coincidence yesterday that we were talking about cases for the Kindle Fire right when Amazon put together an entire page of discounted cases and covers (of course I'd already found the best deals). If you're still searching for the right cover for you, take a look at their complete list!

Also, we'll make our last call tonight for votes for the 1st Annual Kindle Fire App Awards on Facebook and Twitter. Make sure to think about your favorite and then cast your vote!

Now on to today's free app and our book of the day!

Name: Hot Donut
Rating: 2.8 stars over 33 reviews
Price: 0.00
Description: How hot are you, little donut? Are you sizzling hot, just warmish, or downright soggy? Find out when you roll, jump, and dash your way through four awe-inspiring worlds in the fun Android game, Hot Donut.

This pastry-turned-action-hero obviously means business. He's dressed for success in his purple cape, red gloves, and Superman stance. He also has large eyes meant for spying ... fireflies, which, if you're lucky enough to catch, give you extra points.

Today's Kindle Daily Deal is a classic work of literature from master writer Margaret Atwood. This is your chance to get this haunting dystopian work at a fraction of the price!

Title: The Handmaid's Tale
Rating: 4.2 stars over 692 reviews
Price: $16.95 1.49

Description:  In a startling departure from her previous novels ( Lady Oracle, Surfacing ), respected Canadian poet and novelist Atwood presents here a fable of the near future. In the Republic of Gilead, formerly the United States, far-right Schlafly/Falwell-type ideals have been carried to extremes in the monotheocratic government. The resulting society is a feminist's nightmare: women are strictly controlled, unable to have jobs or money and assigned to various classes: the chaste, childless Wives; the housekeeping Marthas; and the reproductive Handmaids, who turn their offspring over to the "morally fit" Wives. The tale is told by Offred (read: "of Fred"), a Handmaid who recalls the past and tells how the chilling society came to be. This powerful, memorable novel is highly recommended for most libraries.
