If you love to read, you won’t want to miss today’s Tuesday Tip: how to get books for FREE on your Kindle, computer, or other device with a Kindle app. Did you know that you don’t actually need a Kindle to read Kindle books? You can access them with the Kindle Cloud Reader on any computer with an internet connection. You can also download the free Kindle app on an iPod, iPad, or any smartphone. These different devices can also sync with one another to help you get to the last page you read, even if you open a book on another device!
Now for what to read…you don’t have to pay for that either! Here are three easy ways to get FREE books for your Kindle:
- Check the Top 100 Free Bestsellers list on a regular basis. It’s constantly changing, but you can find some really good books on here for free. Along the left-hand side of the page, you can sort by genre as well: everything from cookbooks to children’s books to mystery to historical fiction.
- Consider Amazon Prime if you do a lot of shopping on Amazon. The $79 annual membership gets you free 2-day shipping on almost all Amazon purchases, unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video, and a Kindle book to borrow for free each month from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. You can get a FREE 30-day trial to check it out if you might be interested.
- Sister shopper Brittany emailed us this week to remind us of one of my favorite tips: You can check out eBooks from the library! Most libraries now participate, and it’s a simple process. Look on your local library’s web site for the spot to browse for eBooks. Many popular titles will be available! You may have to wait for some, but they’ll email you when they become available. Type in the number from your library card to check them out, then you’ll receive a link to login to Amazon and deliver the book to your device. (It might sound a little complicated, but I promise it’s not bad!) It’s a great way to read new release books without buying them yourself!
