It’d be lovely to own a Kindle, or an iPad, or any other type of tablet. You could use it to download all sorts of apps, browse online and read books but, not everyone has the spare cash to buy one.
eBooks themselves are cheaper than real books and I want to take advantage of being able to read cheaper (or even free) books.
Hiding in the depths of the Amazon site, you can find lots of free eBooks to download. We all love reading in my house and, if I had the time, I could easily read a few books a week. However, I don’t have the budget to stretch to buying them all the time (or the room to store them all) so being able to get hold of books electronically is brilliant.
You can get free eBooks that are either classic books that are now in the public domain, or sample books, or even books that have been put on special offer to build an interest.
Just because you don’t have a tablet doesn’t mean that you have to miss out and, without a eReader or tablet, there are still ways to read these eBooks, for free.
Free eBook Reader
Depending on which phone you have, you can download the Kindle app and link it to your Amazon account.
If you don’t have a compatible phone or would rather read the book on a larger screen, you can download the Kindle Cloud Reader straight to your computer (PC or Mac).
How to Download Free eBooks
Now you have a way to read the books, to get the freebies is quite easy. When you find a free eBook you want, click on the ‘Buy Now With 1-Click’ button on the right hand side of the screen.
It will want you to choose your billing address (don’t worry, if it’s free you won’t be billed) and, once clicked, it will be ready in your Kindle Cloud reader for when you want to read it.
Although the process of getting them is easy, finding the free eBooks is not. Amazon don’t make it easy to find them and there is no clear navigation on the Amazon site. So, each week from now, I will hunt down and bring you some great eBooks that you can download and read for free.
