    I have another way too. Go to bookbub.com and register for free and you will get an email every day with free and very inexpensive books you can download. These are sometimes just one day deals so check your email every day.

    Or you could just search "free books". Add whatever genre you're looking for. "free historical romance books" is a fav.

    I use Amazon all the time for my Nexxus. Type in Free Kindle ebooks download.

    I find all free Kindle books here: http://www.pixelofink.com/ New ones are listed twice a day. Many are free for only one day and back to regular price the next. If you have Amazon Prime, you can borrow books from Amazon library, keep as long as you like but only one book at a time. I'm not a fan of Overdrive. Very few of the newer books are listed to lend.
    Got fabric?

    The best sight I have seen for free Kindle books is EreaderIq.com. I booked the sight and check every day and they will also send an email each day if you sign up. Hundreds of free books there

    You can do a see amazon's top free 100 books in different genres by doing this:

    Go to amazon.com
    On the left click on Kindle, then click on Kindle books
    On the left, click on "Kindles best sellers"
    Then you can click on any genre on the left, and it will list the top 100 paid and top 100 free books.

    re: books from Overdrive/library. I have been told by the local librarian that many of the newer books are not available due to the publisher not wanting to release them for e-reading...I guess the profit is not as great as a "real" book.......Most of the books that are free on Amazon are first time or relatively new authors who want to get their work/names out there....some are good some are really yawners!!!!!!I refuse to buy electronic books...just does not compute in my brain......I can always request a real copy of what I want from the library...does not have to be electronic. Have done all my life so far and it has worked so why fix it if it is not broken....jmho

    I learned to look at the number of pages on free books. some are only 15 pages!!! who would publish such books? So I look for over 200 to 300 pages. not worth my time otherwise.

    I love Overdrive! I use it almost exclusively now on my phone.
    If you check on Facebook there are a couple of groups you can "like" and get free ones that way.

    I like Overdrive but for some reason when the book is returned it remains on my Kindle as Checked In even though I have removed it from the Manage My Kindle site. Its annoying because there are a number of titles on my list that I canm't get rid of.

    Here is another one - free daily listing and usually has 25-30 books listed with a good idea before you punch in on the Amazon link - I like it. http://kebooks.com/

    Since reading about these sites I have been loading free ebooks. I love the Christian fiction so I have plenty to read now. Wow, thanks ladies.

    Thanks for this idea. It's a great way to find titles in a random order that appeals to the dabbler in me. Careful, though: a few of the books that came up are not free but can be borrowed for free if you have Amazon Prime. It would be too easy to get carried away and accidentally click "buy with one click" thinking you were shopping from a list of freebies when you were not necessarily.

    DH refused to even think about a Kindle, he's an avid reader. I bought him one anyway. It sit on his nightstand for months before he decided to check it out. Now the Kindle goes where he goes. He loves it. I thought it would be different then reading a real book but when I stared reading I forgot I wasn't holding book. I like the dictionary feature. Just tap a word on the page and the meaning shows instantly.
