Give Smashwords a Try for Free Kindle Books

As many of you know, there are many eBook publishers and retailers out there besides Amazon – if you only rely on the Amazon Kindle store to “feed” your Kindle, you may miss out on a lot of independent authors out there who write some really nice stories!

Smashwords is an ebook publishing and distribution platform for ebook authors, publishers and readers. They offer multi-format, DRM-free ebooks, ready for immediate sampling and purchase, and readable on any e-reading device. At Smashwords, the authors and publishers have complete control over the sampling, pricing and marketing of their written works.

For readers, Smashwords provides an opportunity to discover new voices in all categories and genres of the written word. Once you register, the site offers useful tools for search, discovery and personal library-building, and each week they add new features based on feedback from members.

Follow the links for the free book section, which typically has well over 1,000 – sometimes a whole heck of a lot more – books for free in many eBook formats, including your Kindle. To check it out, just click here.

You can read them on your computer, or transfer them to your Kindle. If you download a Kindle book from the site, you will need to transfer it to your computer to your Kindle. Click here to read my post on how to do that procedure – this is the same text of the title I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but the blog readers can read it for free.

Want to have this blog sent wirelessly to your Kindle vs. reading it on your computer? Try out the free two-week subscription!  Click here for the Amazon page for Free Kindle Books Plus a Few Other Tipsor type in into your computer’s web browser.
