This is one of those posts you probably want to share with friends / coworkers / family who have Kindles or the Kindle reading application on their iPad, phone, computer, etc.
I’ve been blogging about the Kindle for a couple of years now, and I’ve seen free books come and go – sometimes there are peaks and valleys, although lately Amazon has been pumping out the free content: if your Kindle is like mine, I have a lot in my digital to be read pile thanks to the free offers.
I’ve never seen a peek like this: since yesterday, there are over 900 new free books available to download from the Amazon Kindle store. I’m obviously not going to write a separate or summarized post on these books as there isn’t enough time in the day.
Alternatively, here is a link you can use to start surfing away: click here or type in http://amzn.to/bookload into your computer’s web browser for a listing by genre of the free book listings. I have bookmarked this link and I recommend you do, also.
You’ll see that this list has all of the non-public domain free books on the Amazon website and, as I type this post, should refer you to 2,735 free Kindle books. If you look on the left-hand side of the Amazon page that pops up, you will see the books sorted by category with 1,988 fiction and 688 non-fiction books.
How did this happen? Well, with the lending program I told you about yesterday (click here to see that post again), independent authors now have the ability to offer their books for free for a five day period every 90 days. Needless to say, it would appear quite a few authors chose to offer their books for free starting today. While they won’t make any money off of these free offers, the hope they have is you will try out their book and enjoy it, and possibly purchase some of their other offerings.
Here’s the link again: http://amzn.to/bookload
The reason why I say bookmark this link is it should be good not only today but every day down the road, pointing you to free offerings in the Amazon Kindle store.
Now I just need enough time to grab and read some of these books!!
Have a great weekend-
