    Free Kindle Books every day

    I just read the nice thread about Amazon's amazing service re:Kindle. I thought I would share a source (totally free and legal as far as I know) for free books for Kindle. There is a Web site called pixel of ink (pixelofink.com) that sends a list of free and reduced price Kindle books every day of the week. Clicking on a book takes you right to the Amazon site, so there's no funny stuff going on. Pixel of ink just creates a list of the books Amazon is "selling" for $0.00 on any given day, as well as those that are "on sale" that day.

    I have "purchased" more than 100 books for my Kindle this way. There are all sorts of books listed, from vampire mysteries to cookbooks. If you are tired of paying for all your Kindle books, check it out.

    FYI -- I have no involvement or financial interest in the site, I just like to save $$$$.

    I receive the email daily. This is a good source of books for the kindle/kindle fire. I was surprised at the number of free items available for a limited time. I have no involvement or financial interest in the site. :-)

    I've been using Pixel of Ink from the first Kindle I bought. I love it. You never know what book will be free for a day. Also Amazon has a free app every day.
    Got fabric?

    Barnes and Noble have literly thousands of free books 24/7. I've really gotten hooked on several series and new authors this way. I agree, getting them free or reduced is a great way to read.

    I subscribe to the site on Facebook and have gotten many books that way. I have only ever purchased a couple books. Just can't afford it. You can also just go to the Kindle store on Amazon and get a list of free and cheap books. Let me look for the link... *elevator music*

    Okay, here are several links to sites that Amazon has posted http://www.amazon.com/b/ref=amb_link...d_i=1286228011

    And here are the free and cheap books on the site. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?bb...011&sort=price Just select what category you're interested in and click on "Sort by". Choose low to high. You'll get the free books in the list.

    I only get free books for my Kindle. They charge the same amount for digital as for paper and since I prefer paper its only free downloads for me. I like to pass my books around the family. Used books are very reasonable thru Amazon.

    My favourite is eReaderIQ as the site can be sorted into genres and then saved. They put the new additions first, which I also like. I get so many e-mails, I'd just rather go to the web page and pick my books. http://www.ereaderiq.com/free/ I also like the fact I can hover the cursor over the pic of the book and get a brief synopsis.

    Thank you all so much. I just downloaded about 20 free books, including some very interesting looking cookbooks.

    I also use Inspired Reads, Books on the Knob, Ereader News Today and BookBub for free Kindle books. I've downloaded over 1000 free ones and will NEVER get them all read!

    I'll pass this onto DH. He has a Kindle and I have a Nook. For those of you who have a Nook, there are 1,800,000.00 +/- on their site. If you have a Nook just do a search for free books and they will come up. A lot of them are smut but not all by any means. A lot of them are the first books in a series. They hope to get you hooked on the series by offering the first book for free. I've read hundreds of the free ones in the 3 years I've had my Nook.

    Good to know. I use the library for all my books I just can't afford to buy the way I read. I have read 3 books in the last 2 days. But I have noticed that even the library is getting a lot of books on the e reader so I am going to have to break down and save up for a kindle or something. I know I can get it on my computer but I read a lot laying down and the computer is kinda big. lol

    Barnes and Noble has an app that you can download for free to read books on. You can even have it on your smartphone. I used to have it on my blackberry. I love the Nook and my Nook Color but in the mean time try the app for your pc and enjoy the free books.

    Here's another one: http://www.dailycheapreads.com/. They post several times each day, and highlight books that are either free or under $5.00. I have bought a bunch of books that were on my Kindle wishlist just by checking their site and noticing that the prices had gone down significantly.

    I use that site all the time but a better site is EreaderIq which also goes to amazon and has free books. you just have to click the link for free books. I book this site and check it every day and they will also send an email each day. have gotten thousands of free books that way and seldom ever pay for a book any more.

    I love Pixel of Ink. My kindle is full of free books from this site. I especially enjoy the fact that as a result I have read some really good books and discovered new authors that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.
