5 Ways to Get (Legally) Free E-Books for the Kindle


1. The Amazon Store.The first and most obvious place to get free books for your Kindle is in the Amazon Store itself. What you need to do is go to Amazon’s page for Kindle books. Next, navigate to whichever type of book you are looking for-there is a genre list on the left side. After clicking on whatever genre interests you, in a box on the right side of the screen, sort from lowest price to highest price. What you will have is a list of all of the books in the Amazon Store from the genre you selected, starting with the free books. After you have sorted from lowest price to highest price, you can navigate from one genre to another, and the list will automatically be sorted by price.

2. Feedbooks, located at www.feedbooks.com Navigation is very simple on the Feedbooks website. On the front page, you have a number of options. You can search for an author, title or subject. On the left side, you will see options to browse by public domain books or by original books. When you have found a book you want to download, you simply click on the “Download” button. From here, you will need to select whichever format you need-Kindle, Epub, etc. From here you will be able to move the book to your Kindle Documents folder via the USB Cable.

3. Manybooks, located at www.manybooks.net Manybooks is very similar in navigation to Feedbooks. One advantage to Manybooks is that they have books available in a large number of languages. Another way Manybooks is unique is that they have a number of book collections, such as “State of the Union Addresses”, “Science Fiction After 1950” and “How To…” EBooks. The process for downloading is the same as Feedbooks, with one advantage-Manybooks has over 20 different options available for download, including PDF, Kindle, etc.

4. Project Gutenberg, located at www.gutenberg.orgAgain, this site works similarly to Feedbooks and Manybooks. Project Gutenberg, though, has all public domain books. Because of this, they tend to be older. Project Gutenberg has a number of interesting ways to search, including “Top 100 Books” and “Top 100 Authors” downloaded.

5. The Baen Free Library, located at http://www.baen.com/library/defaultTitles.htm Baen specializes in Science Fiction. When you’ve found a book you want to download, simply click the Mobi/Palm/Kindle option and move it to your Kindle via USB Cable.
