Today is just one of those days….each day, there are a few hundred new books in the Kindle format offered for free on the Amazon website, primarily from independent authors. Today, there were a little over 600 – and with a new month rolling around, the total is pretty impressive with just over 24,000 free Kindle books in the Amazon Kindle store this morning!
You may also want something to do this weekend, say along the lines of checking out the various books that are being offered for free at any point in time in the Amazon Kindle store. I’ll show you some links on how to do that in a minute (many of you already know of these links).
For the past few weeks, there have been about 400 or so different free book offerings each day in the Amazon Kindle store as the many independent authors have been making their material free to you or Amazon is matching a free book promotion on a competing website. Sometimes these free book offers last for a couple of hours (or less) to weeks at a time. Please make sure you verify a book is free before you hit the “buy” button or your account will be charged!
Due to the number of free book offerings out there, I am unable to list out each and every one for you – I do try, however, to show you a selection of highly rated (at least 4 stars on the Amazon rating system) books in a couple of different genres for you to take a look at – but I do realize there are many times what I think might be interesting to you is not your cup of tea, or there may be times I miss telling you about a book that you absolutely have to have and read!
Here are some of the stats in the Amazon Kindle store; and the data was fresh this morning before I head off to playing taxi for a couple of activities with the kids:
- As I type this post this morning, there are exactly 8,061 free books that are “new” books and not considered classics or in the public domain.
- Of those 8,061 books 5,216 are fiction and 2,705 are non-fiction.
- There are 15,820 classic books available for free – the most popular title is Pride and Prejudice, followed closely by Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know.
If my math is correct, that’s (only) 24,048 free Kindle books for you to peruse and potentially read on your Kindle just from the Amazon website: that might take you a while.
Here are the links again, and you may consider bookmarking some of these (I have) as the titles available change each hour. Please make sure you verify the price is still free before you click the “buy” button!
