Free Is Good

Yes, "free" is always good, especially if it really is free. Since I purchased my Kindle in November, I have read numerous books and played fun games that were FREE.

The following sites feature only a small fraction of the free books available daily. I've added these blogs to my Google Reader because each one has multiple posts throughout the day.

Free Kindle Books and Tips  This site gives the reader ratings for the books. If a book has 4.5 or 5 stars out of 5 stars from over 20 readers, I usually download it. Be sure to check out this post for specific categories on Amazon that offer free books.

Pixel of Ink  lists many of the same books as Free Kindle Books & Tips, but it also shows the book covers (if that appeals to you); however, it doesn't give the reader ratings. This site also lists some books that are not free, such as the Bargain eBooks.

Inspirational Reads  offers free Christian Kindle books. Once on this page, notice the tabs at the top for Non-fiction and Fiction offers.

Pixel of Ink - Young Edition  features free Kindle books for ages 0 - young adult, even picture books. Notice the tabs across the top for the age categories.

Kindle Nation Daily is relatively new to me, so I am not as familiar with its features and offerings.

The books these sites feature don't remain free forever, so before you click on the "purchase" button, make sure the book is still free.

If you don't own a Kindle, the free eBooks can also be read on the computer or phone. This post has more information.

  1. I haven't liked most of the free Kindle books I've read, but there is one I really enjoyed: Letters of a Woman Homesteader by Elinore Pruitt Stewart. Do you have any recommendations?

  4. I've downloaded a lot of free books. Thus far, I'm reading ... something non-fiction about mythology on the Kindle app for my i-stuff, and I'm enjoying it. I'm also reading a free book on my Nook. I don't recall the title, but it's historical fiction, about the Roanoke Colony. It's slow going, but they haven't gotten to the "new world" yet.

  5. Have you tried checking with your local library to see if they lend e-books? I know, here in Nebraska we have a program through the Nebraska Library Commission that you can "borrow" books for your e-readers, including Kindle. You might want to check it out, if you are looking for more recent books and bestsellers.
