This is another one of those posts you probably want to tell your family / friends / coworkers about as the good times continue to roll, especially send it to those who have a dedicated Kindle reader or one of the many Kindle applications on iPads, computers, etc.
I have some good news and bad news, so let’s get the bad news out of the way: of the 2,700+ free books I told you about yesterday, approximately 500 of them are no longer free. Oh well…
Now, the good news: there are over 1,100 new free books available today in the Amazon Kindle store for a total of 3,223 free non-public domain books!! That is certainly incredible! I’ll have some statistics on the free offers in just a few moments.
If I did my normal job of posting about each free book or even tried to summarize them into one post it would take me a couple of days. If you didn’t bookmark the link I gave you yesterday I strongly suggest you bookmark it now – 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.
The Kindle Book Lending program for authors (click here or type in http://bit.ly/rZ2h5h into your computer’s web browser to see that post again) allows independent authors to offer any of their books for free for a five day period every 90 days. Obviously, more of these independent authors took advantage of that offer and I will imagine that trend will continue.
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 3,223 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 2,305 fiction and 833 non-fiction books.
To break down the categories even further, here is what’s available by genre this morning – there should be several “somethings” available for the 70,000+ people who will see this message today:
