    good book for a beginner , it explains how to add books to the kindle through USB and the formats supported by the kindle. i found a couple good sites for books , the rest were a bit confusing to navigate.

    I unabashedly troll for free Kindle books every day. No, I won't be able to read them all if I live multiple lifetimes, although it might be fun to try. When I came across this Kindle freebie about finding Kindle freebies, I snatched it up. This edition was released in 2016 and is the 18th edition of the book (according to the author). Things change in the digital world, maybe not as rapidly as they did in the 1980s, so this book is three years out of date. There are more books out there for your I unabashedly troll for free Kindle books every day. No, I won't be able to read them all if I live multiple lifetimes, although it might be fun to try. When I came across this Kindle freebie about finding Kindle freebies, I snatched it up. This edition was released in 2016 and is the 18th edition of the book (according to the author). Things change in the digital world, maybe not as rapidly as they did in the 1980s, so this book is three years out of date. There are more books out there for your Kindle than just the ones you buy in the Amazon Kindle Store. Some of them have been around for a long time. One such site is Project Gutenberg which is an excellent source of public domain works. Originally, their offerings were in text, html, or pdf format. They have kept up with the times and now offer digital book formats, like mobi, which is Kindle compatible. Like Project Gutenberg, Manybooks has been around for a long time. It's been some time since I visited that site, and it is much more sophisticated than it was in the past. Two other long-time sites mentioned are Scribd and Smashwords. Links to various free eBook sites are provided. As I was trying them out, all went well until I tried the link to Diesel eBooks and was taken to a site that didn't seem to have anything whatsoever to do with books… e or otherwise. Then I clicked on the link for eBooks Space and got the verbal warning that my computer was infected. For those who panic at such warnings, be advised that on a Windows PC you should NOT click on anything but go directly to the Task Manager (you can get to that with the old Ctrl-Alt-Del key-combo) and end task on your browser. It would seem that this book is in dire need of another update. Farther along in the links is Know Free that also announces that your computer is infected. You may be asking yourself why I am so cavalier about clicking on links. I spent more than twenty years working as a computer support specialist, so I am pretty confident I can get out of these panic attack inducing situations. Keep calm and Ctrl-Alt-Del. You should probably avoid Librivox and Munsey's because the links provided don't actually take you to those sites. I would add that you can find Munsey's Magazine in Wikipedia with links to the full text of the magazine that can be obtained through Google Books. You will also find many of the stories that the magazine contained on the Project Gutenberg site. The link to The Online Literature Library doesn't work. You get the dread 404 page not found error. I've started my review with what I believe people want to know about this book: where to get free books. I would be remiss if I did not include the technical aspects of getting other than Amazon Kindle books onto your device or into your app. First, you don't need a Kindle to read Kindle books. Amazon provides apps for computers, phones and tablets. The easiest way to get an eBook file from your computer to your device is via email. Every Kindle, physical device or app, has its own email address that you can find by going to your Amazon account and clicking on Content and Devices. Clicking on the button that precedes the device or app brings up a dialog with all the information about your reader including its email address. You can, of course, transfer files with a USB cable as well. Overall, the book is well-conceived and clearly written. The only thing that needs work are some of the links.

    Awesome This is the easiest, most comprehensive collection of free books I've ever had since I have owned my Kindle. It also doesn't hurt that at least as of today the book only costs a penny!

    kindle for dummies Easy read and a great resource for the kindle beginner. I'm an ipad guy and received the kindle fire for Christmas. I wasn't familiar with this type of tablet but this book helped me quite a bit. kindle for dummies Easy read and a great resource for the kindle beginner.

    I'm happy I found this book for free on Amazon, because it wasn't worth paying for. I think it would be a decent introduction to someone who is not at all familiar with the kindle, computers and technology in general, but aside from that it was fairly useless.
