I read a lot.
This is a good thing. Really good, in fact, when the book being read costs nothing.
But here’s the thing, if you don’t live near a library with a big selection, or a library whose card catalog aligns well with your reading interests, reading can be really expensive.
So what’s a person to do?
Well, the good news is that a person can actually get their hands on a number of ebooks (for Kindle) free. If you own a Kindle (not the Kindle app for your computer, tablet or smartphone) you can borrow a number of books via the Kindle lending library free of charge. Even if you don’t own a Kindle, there are a number of books that are free for a limited time via publisher promotion, etc. You can find the ‘Top 100 Free’ Kindle Bestsellers by clicking here.
I know, this is old news for many of you. But I’m sure there are quite a few who didn’t know about this, so I thought it was worth sharing.
Are there other websites where a person can get free ebooks that you would recommend?
Priscilla’s suggestion (see below) is to subscribe to David C. Cook’s free email list that keeps you abreast of a ebooks that they are offering as a free download, for a limited time. A quick look at the site reveals that the ebooks can be downloaded in a variety of formats, including but not limited to Kindle. Definitely worth checking out.
