How to fill your Kindle for FREE
Just discovered that manybooks.net now has kindle formated books available. If you have wondered, “what can I get to try my kindle out with that won’t cost me anything,” search no longer. Many (Ha, that’s part of their name) of the books I read when I was younger and would consider great books for your own library are available at the site. I downloaded Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe and, although it has about 7 pages of pretext explaining that the text came from the Gutenbug project and how you can contribute if you want to, there is a coverpage picture and the text is all there. So in my mind, score one for FREE!
There is a large number of books at manybooks.net that I wouldn’t bother with, but I plan on grabbing many of the classics that I haven’t read or haven’t read since I was much younger. “Frankenstien” by Mary Shelly or Bram Stokers “Dracula” were a few that I have never read the book but have obviously seen ton of retread movies related to them. One I do want to get is Treasure Island and Gulliver’s Travels, which I haven’t read since I was 10, but there are really too many to list here. A large number of Shakespere’s works, Poe, well far more than I had expected. So Kudos to ManyBooks.net for hopping on the bandwagon early and getting their collection converted so quickly. Go check it out, I can’t image you won’t find at least one book you’ll download.
Free Books at Amazon
As a commenter mentioned, there are lots of free books available at Amazon.com. The link I provided lists all available Kindle books sorted by price. All of the free books should appear first, even if you click on a category on the left of the page. I’ve used this technique many times to find new books for zero cash.
Not Free, but Used
While we’re focusing on tightening the purse strings, you should know that there are lots of used Kindles and accessories available on the web. So, if you’re looking to upgrade or pick up some accessories, a used Kindle should be a strong consideration.
