How Can I Download Free Books For My Kindle?

Postby Aodhan » Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:16 pm

There are thousands of free books on Amazon and Barnes and noble. They have deals of the day & offer certain books for free for a limited time.


Check with your local library for e-books to borrow. For most of them, they will download the next time the kindle connects to wireless. Other e-readers may require you to hook up using a usb or you can read them on your computer. pdf & e-pub are common formats.

You can also borrow books that are lending enabled from these 2 sites via Amazon. http://www.booklending.com/ http://lendle.me/

These sites are for free books & in copyright compliance for downloading.

http://openlibrary.org/

Search for a title and make sure to check the 'Only show eBooks' checkbox.

If you go to amazon.com and search free kindle books you will find them there. Or if you go to kindle books and click on best sellers you will find a list of the top 100 free books.

How Can I Download Free Books For My Kindle?

There are plenty of free books on Kindle; you can look for the free top 100 in your favourite genres. There are also websites that feature Kindle books that are being promoted and are free for a short term.

But I would really beg you not to use the various pirate sites. It can take a year or more of hard work for an author to write a book, and whether they are traditionally published or independent, they don't get a lot of money per sale anyway. Pirating sites rob authors of the small profits writing might bring them, and ultimately, this is demoralising. Authors need to pay bills too.

I have always enjoyed to read. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't also enjoy TV. Throughout the day it is usually a booklet.

I never buy books for the Kindle unless I get a gift card from someone and I read a lot.

You can lend books from your public library ebook program. I used to buy books for my reader until I learned about the program. My library has thousands of ebooks and audio books. It adds many books each month including latest releases. I recently read 2 books that are on sale in stores now. I can have 10 books checked out at a time. I can pick 7, 14, or 21 day checkout. Many books are available now to borrow but some have wait lists. Thye usually have a few copies so the wait lists do not take too long usually. I can have 10 books on the wait list. They email me when my books become available off the wait list. I can put as many books as I want in my wish list so I know what books I may want to read in the future. I always choose a 21 day check out because you may have 3 books checked out and then some of your books you have on the wait list come available so that gives you more time to read them all. If you read them before 21 days use your return function on the reader to return the book or it will disappear off all devices at the due date as it is a timed file.

You need your local library card to sign up right now on the site. The pin number is usually the last 4 numbers of your card or your birthyear or they ask you to create one or call your library. Put in your zipcode and find yours: http://www.overdrive.com/

Your library can help you need it, call to set up an appt for help.

On the overdrive site above download the app on your computer if you have a kindle ereader or on y or device if you have a kindle tablet (the app is in the kindle tablet app store free).
Find your library, sign up, check out books, and if yhou have a ereader that is not a tablet then hook up your usb and transfer.
If you have a tablet kindle like I do (Kindle Fire HD7) you can read epub and kindle format books.
If you choose epub you will read them on your kindle on overdrive app medial console ereader on the Kindle.
If you choose kindle format you read on the kindle ereader on the Kindle.
In order to get kindle format from the library you have to have your amazon account set up.
Even though its free it has to go through that way.
I choose all epub books for my kindle.
Here is my local one: http://dbooks.wplc.info/194AFDAF-052C-4E...

Reading a good booklet offers a richer experience and can leave you with memory that will last years. Television is merely educational if you are enjoying a documentary or something similar

You can do a search for free ebooks on amazon. Or you can look out for free promotions and giveaways on goodreads.com. Also gutenberg.org has the largest collection of free public domain ebooks.

All this is legal.
