Amazon Kindle eBook Reader

Did you know that Amazon.com offers thousands of free books for download? And you don’t even need a Kindle (pictured above)! I just figured this out last weekend, and I’m thrilled so I wanted to share all the details before I forget.

All you have to do is get an (also free) application for wherever you want to read the free ebooks — your iPhone or iPod Touch, Mac, PC, iPad, Blackberry, or Android. My husband and I both use and enjoy the iPod touch and Mac Kindle readers. One day, maybe when we’re homeschooling and future generations have come out, we’d like an iPad for more of a book-like feel.

Also, I figured out a great way to keep updated about what free books are available: there are almost 20,000 classics always available here, and limited-time newer releases can be found for free here! You can even sign-up at Change Detection to find out when new books have been added for free. Just type in the page address “http://www.amazon.com/b?ie=UTF8&node=2245146011” and your own e-mail address, and you’ll get an email update whenever there’s something new! Update: Now I email subscribe to http://www.pixelofink.com/ which works much better. I just signed up and can’t wait to get some good, free, books! I think my first will be The Autobiography of Madame Guyon, which is an older edition of a book I had on my book wishlist. Yay for reading, and especially yay for free!
