Hide Kindle books on FatWallet

Hide Kindle books on FatWallet

I like to browse FatWallet for hot deals and free stuff. Unfortunately, some people think every free or discounted Kindle book they find should get posted to the forums because it is the most amazing thing in the universe that you can get a poorly edited book about something you don’t even care about for free on the internet.
