Amazon again offers its Prime members one early-release Kindle eBook per month for free as part of its Kindle First Program. (It costs $1.99 for non-members who sign up for Kindle First monthly emails.) That's $3 under the list prices of these books, which are otherwise only available as preorders. Deal ends December 31.

Each month, you can choose from one of six new Kindle eBooks that are selected by Amazon's editors in advance of the books' official release dates. This month's titles include Randall Silvis's Only the Rain, Aimie K. Runyan's Daughters of the Night Sky, Lindsay Ward's Don't Forget Dexter!, and Masaji Ishikawa's A River in Darkness.
