Yesterday afternoon I spent a little over an hour on the Amazon web site, downloading books for my Kindle. In that time I found 60 books I thought I’d like in the Science Fiction and Murder Mystery genres. My first order was placed at 5:10 and my 60th order was placed at 6:17. Each of those books was free. That’s right, free.
The way to search for free books is easy. On the Kindle eBooks section of the website, type the genre you want in the search box, and click on Go.
This will bring up a list of books. In this case there are 23,752 matches.
But I’m interested in free books. To get the free books we change the Sort by criteria from Relevance to Price: Low to High.
Now all the books in the list are sorted with the free books first. Just go through the list and pick the ones you want to “buy” for free.
The point is, if you want to read with a computer, or most other connected devices, you can read for free. Other than a library, you can’t beat that, and you can check books out of the library for the Kindle as well. It depends on the library so check yours to be sure.
I’ve had a Kindle for years now and love it. I wouldn’t go back to paper if given a choice. However, you don’t need to invest in a dedicated Kindle to take advantage of free books. I have an android tablet that lets me use the free Kindle app to read books. I also have the same free Kindle app for my PC and my phone.
So, if you want to start reading for free, the apps and the books are out there. I try to pick only books with a reasonable number of reviews and at least a four star rating. I still pick some stinkers, but they’re free. I just delete the bad book and go on to the next book on my list.
Here’s the list of books I downloaded yesterday. Some books are only free for a short time. If you see something you like, grab it while you can.
