Many people like to read digital books these days, and devices like the Amazon Kindle can make that very easy to do. Though the costs of ebooks are low, they can quickly add up if you love to read and do it often. The solution? Free Kindle books! Below, you will find six ways you can find free books for your Amazon Kindle so you can keep up your love of reading without breaking the bank. I’m also sharing a few titles I’ve picked up recently for free or a low cost for my Kindle.
1. Amazon Search. Most people begin looking for free kindle books right on Amazon. You can browse the top 100 free books in the Kindle store, or dive down into the free lists for each genre, depending on your interests. Another way to find free ebooks on Amazon is by using the search bar at the top. Make sure to include the word “free” with your search to filter out most of the paid books.
2. Borrow from a Friend. The Amazon Kindle is lending for many of the books you read on it. In fact, your friends can lend you a book right from their app or device. It’s really easy and within a minute or two, you can have a new book to read without spending a dime. You only have two weeks before it is deleted from your Kindle though, so make sure you get it read before it’s gone!
3. Pixel of Ink. Pixel of Ink features daily deals, including freebies, on Kindle ebooks. You can visit the website to search and the links direct you back to Amazon to download the book to your Kindle. Tip: POI shares books when they are free, but they can’t guarantee how long they will be free. Verify the price on Amazon before you buy so you don’t get charged!
4. Author Newsletters. Follow your favorite authors by email, especially if you would like to read their books for free! Many will thank their subscribers to exclusive freebies you can’t get on Amazon or anywhere else. Sometimes, you may even have the chance to get a book before it’s released for sale.
5. Project Gutenberg. Another great website for finding free Kindle books. They report to have over 46,000 books to choose from, with no registration or fees required! Project Gutenberg have lots of old classics and other publications that have made their way to the public domain, and all of their books are easy to search with the category page.
6. Free Booksy. Free Booksy is similar to Pixel of Ink, but they only list free books. You can easily navigate the offerings by genre, or just visit the homepage to see the latest no-cost books. Subscribe to their newsletter so you don’t miss out!
