How to Find Free Kindle Books
Posted on Tuesday, August 30th, 2011 at 8:12 am
Nowadays with Kindle, you can get over a million books with the tap of your finger. Better yet, you can get tons of books completely FREE! If you don’t already have a Kindle, you can purchase one from Amazon.com starting at only $114 and start downloading free books. You can find everything from free cookbooks to free textbooks and everything in between. Here’s some suggestions for how you can find free Kindle books:
Free Books in the Kindle Store
Start finding free Kindle books by visiting the Kindle Store. Once you’re in the Kindle Store, choose “Kindle eBooks” from the top menu. You can now choose from a variety of categories on the left side of the page. Once you’ve chosen a category, locate the “sort by” drop down menu in the upper right corner of the page. Choose to sort by price: low to high. Now all the free books will be listed first. As you click through different categories, your results will stay sorted by price to that you can quickly find free books to download to your Kindle!
Free Public Domain Books
Public domain books are free. These books include some wonderful classics such as Pride and Prejudice, The Time Machine, The Scarlet Letter, Ulysses, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and many more. You can search “public domain books” in the Kindle Store search bar for a full list of free public domain books.
First in a Series Books
Often, books that are the first in a series will become free when a sequel is coming out. The reason for this is that the booksellers hope that people will buy the rest of the books in the series after reading the first one.
“Top 100 Free” Books
You can also search the Kindle “Top 100 Free” section in the Kindle Store. On this list you’ll find books such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Persuasion, The Secret Garden, and many others.
I will admit, I love the feel of a real book in my hands so I was a little hesitant to purchase a Kindle, but with all the free books available you can easily earn savings that exceed the initial cost of $114. Plus, downloading free books on Kindle is so easy when you can do it from the comfort of your own home (and without wasting a single penny driving to the bookstore). Having all my books on my Kindle has also helped me to free up some extra space on my bookshelves.
