Are you looking for free Kindle Books to fill up that brand new Kindle you received this holiday?
What many Kindle owners may not realize is just how many books for Kindle are available for free. A TON. The ones you have to pay for can be really inexpensive too. Plenty of daily deals starting at $2 and most costing around just $4, there shouldn’t be any excuse for not reading more books.
The process for obtaining free kindle books is fairly easy. Most “classics” fall into the category of public domain and are free to download. In fact thousands of titles fall in to this category. All you have to do is go looking for them on the Kindle store.
There are also many more titles that authors are providing for free. Whether it be free romance stories, self help, or fan fiction novels you can fill up your Kindle in no time with free Kindle books. Warning, for some reason there are a ton of free romance stories on these lists. But you’d also be surprised at how many best selling authors offer new ebooks for free through the Kindle Store.
Though technically not free, the Kindle Owner’s Library is another great option to get free Kindle books. In order to take advantage of the library you must be a Kindle owner and an Amazon Prime Member ($79 a year). Having both gives you access to an additional 300,000 titles including current and former NY Times Best Sellers. And of course Prime Members get free 2-day shipping and access to unlimited streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows in addition to free Kindle books.
Staying within Amazon’s ecosystem certainly is the easiest and quickest way to read ebooks on your Kindle. But buying a Kindle doesn’t limit you to only Kindle Store books. In fact Amazon spells out directions on how to navigate sites like Archive.org (2.5 million free ebooks), Open Library (1 million free ebooks), Project Gutenberg (30,000+ free ebooks), or ManyBooks.net (25,000+ free ebooks). With a little extra effort you can expand your free ebook library. Ultimately it is a process of searching and sending the ebook to your Kindle.
Happy reading and enjoy your new Kindle whatever method you use to get your new (free) ebooks.
