There are a lot of free kindle books available online. SUBSCRIBE NOW for Free Kindle Book Emails delivered straight to your Email Inbox. All books that have passed out of copyright and into the public domain ought to be available as a free kindle book. With sites like manybooks, gutenberg, and munseys you can fill your kindle reader with free kindle books, or if you prefer supplement your kindle book purchases with free books. Personally, I think this is a overlooked advantage of the Kindle – being able to get and read all the classics and public domain books for free.

  1. What about running programs such as Plucker? Can the Kindle handle books in that form?

    It’s all part of my desperate attempts to get Kipling’s collected verse on my kindle…

  2. Kevin, i’ve been trying to find an online version for you and the link at digital index doesn’t work (
    you could buy it at abebooks for just 3$ or so –
    Plucker working on kindle – i really don’t know enough. I do know that Kindle runs on linux – however there is no way provided to run other programs. at this point i think there’s no way to get pluckr on the kindle short of hacking it (
    So it’d be a suggestion to Amazon to put Pluckr on the Amazon Kindle, although i’m not sure of the ramifications.
    Another option would be – i’m assuming you have ‘collected verses’ by Kipling in a format that Pluck supports. Try out MobiPocket Creator to convert it into a format that Kindle accepts. I have no idea what format Pluckr uses so don’t know for sure if MobiPocket Creator will do the job.

    let me know if i’m understanding your question correctly.

  3. I previously turned my back on Kindle as a format for my writing because of cost. Authors should be encouraged! Do you know of any good news on this? I have a free title to go.

      1. no. However, there are 20,00 0 free books in the kindle store (public domain) and 20-40 free offers on new books eveyr month. You can also read the 40,000 project gutenberg books (public domain) and the 1.8 million Internet Archive books (public domain).

  4. I just ordered the kindle from Amazon,I am on a waiting list. I’m glad you published this blog. i’m a constant reader, and Kindle coul become an expensive adventure for me. Glad to know there’s free kindle books out there. thanks!

    1. I am an avid reader and Kinder seems to be theright thing to have. I have to spend about 3 hours a day under dialysis, and It is difficult for me to handle heavy books (I am 83) Kinder hopefully is a light object to handle. Am I right?
      How can I get Kindle ll free of charge?

      1. Yes. Kindle 2 is light.
        Kindle 2 is 10.2 ounces.
        Make sure you don’t get the DX as my friend found the weight on the higher side.
        Also 1 handed reading is rather difficult on dx because of the weight. however it’s fine on the Kindle.

        how can you get one free – that’s difficult. i have a post on kindle 2 contests. just google “free kindle contest’ and it’s the #2 result. i update that when lucky draws etc. happen.
        don’t know of any other way.

  5. Woah this is a great list. I have been thinking of getting a Kindle and I didn’t realize there are so many free books out there, I’ll have to link to this list on my blog.

    I have a question though, I want to offer an ebook for people to sign up to my site, do you think I can offer one of these free ebooks? I know they are free but does that mean I should link to the book or can I host the file on my site and credit the site I got it from.

    If anyone happens to know please email me (dominik at or reply, I clicked on the notify opton

  6. With a heads up from Copynomad the other day that some people are already using kindle as a verb in terms of reading texts on their Kindle devices, I found a few quotes here and there. Any more? This word might catch on to stand for reading online, the way other corporate words turned into every day slang and catchwords, such “to xerox”, “to google”, “to yahoo”, etc.

    First quote I found at

    “I’ve owned my Kindle for almost 6 months and love it. When I mention I’m reading a particular book, I refer to it as “I’m Kindling such & such a book” so it’s already a verb to me. It’s hard to imagine reading a regular book now! By the way, someone mentioned the Kindle costing $1300?!? Try $359 and books are less expensive than the printed version!

  7. i was under the impression that any books can be loaded on this item. i wanted to get it for may son whom has low vision to use for his text books. will he be able to load his text book on this thing?

    1. you should look at the Kindle DX – just look at the top of the page for a ‘Kindle DX review’.
      Also I don’t understand what you mean by ‘any books’.

      You can buy books at Kindle Store. There are supported formats and you can add those. You can add PDF files after conversion.
      Kindle DX supports PDF files natively.

      Kindle DX will have good coverage – however it isn’t out until summer. Also look at the videos above – ‘Kindle 2 Videos’ at the top of the page to see what the screen looks like and the font sizes to make sure it works for your son. best of luck.

  8. I have a sony ebook reader and a kindle 2 is there any site that I can purchase ebooks that can be loaded on both readers

  9. All the texts at Poetry In Translation ( downloadable in .mobi format for the Kindle. All texts are free for non-commercial use. Major poets translated include Baudelaire, Catullus, Chaucer, Dante, Lorca, Neruda ,Ovid, Goethe, Rilke, Rimbaud, and Virgil.

  10. Another free source for books for Kindle is, ironically, the Sony book store. As you may have heard, Sony and Google recently partnered to make ‘500,000+’ books available for free there. They are in ePub format, and the Sony software needed to access the store runs only on Windows, but these titles be easily converted to Kindle friendly MOBI format with a free program such as Calibre or Stanza. Sony accounts are free, you don’t need a Sony reader.
    Of course many of these are the same titles which are available elsewhere without need of conversion, there is a lot of duplication of titles (different editions having been scanned and converted to ePub), the quality is not very polished, and many titles are justifiably obscure, but it is interesting to check out (if only to appreciate Kindle store more..).
    I’m guessing the Sony/Google books are a subset of those available at, where there are gazillions of books in PDF format for free. Even if that is the case ePub is more conversion-friendly than PDF, so Sony would be a better source to use.

    1. sorry, can’t help you with that. try amazon for movie downloads. For the book you can only read a kindle edition on a kindle or on a iphone. you might try the stephanie meyer site and see if she or her publisher sell it in pdf format that you can read on your pc.

    1. I recieved my kindle for a birthday present from my daughter, I love it but I’m having trouble retrieveing the chapters and versus , I don’t know if this is a malfunction or not

  11. @switch11 and Jack.
    not an electronic bible for free, but a great Kindle read is 8W8 – Global Space Tribes by Ralf Hirt. They have something called Inraxxes …

    1. i had a search tool at bookmonk. However, amazon have changed their API to not show free kindle books any more. So no way to search for just free books.

      You could run a search and sort it by price low to high at Amazon.

  12. I got a kindle-2 last Father’s Day from my grandchildren.
    Just started using it. Also just this year had my cataracts
    taken care of. Being mostly retired (still part-time) and a recent
    widower, leaves much time for an old pastime-reading.
    Lucky me. With a limited budget, these free and low-cost books make my winter months very enjoyable.
    Thanks Amazon

  13. If the new Kindles can effortlessly handle PDFs, let me recommend my publisher for free downloads of books that are “Rebar Tough and Built to Last.” A very select list, some of the best authors in the country. Brown Fedora Books–

  14. I’ve emailed several times requesting info as to how I make kindle work. Since there has been no response I’d like to return it for a full refund. I don’t suppose I’ll get a respose from this either. What is the address of the amazon office in Seattle?

    1. what email are you mailing to?
      This is just a kindle blog – it’s not official.

      You oought to try –
      * 1-866-321-8851 (if you are calling from within the US)
      * 1-206-266-0927 (if you are calling from outside the US)

      feel free to ask a question – if it’s something i can help with i will.

  15. I am very much new about this free books do I have to have the kindle to get to read the free book? I do need some enlightenement. Please can you sent any thing that will be helpful to my box. I have a PDF reader.

    1. Tonia, these free book offers are for the Kindle. You could read free public domain books in PDF format from Internet Archive or Gutenberg. Also try Kindle for PC.

  16. I just downloaded the Kindle for PC just to give it a try. I downloaded some classics from Project Gutenburg too. I noticed that none of those books have appealing book covers and I wanted my ebooks to have covers. I tried using the mobi2mobi GUI to add some covers on but it isn’t working…an suggestions? Or does anyone know where you can get free clasics with nice covers? Let me know.

  17. 3 hours ago I started to buy a (1) kindel but when I tried to check out(pay) I noticed that I was buying 2 kindels so I noticed an edit order command and proceeded to edit the order bacK to 1 kindel but the edit order did not function. The order is now up to 3 kindels and I only wanted one. Rather than have 3 kindels , it is much better for me to have only zero.. to put this note in a briefer form your edit function does not work!

  18. I hink I should have a refund on my kindle as I got it just a couple of weeks before you lowered the price

    1. This is not an official Amazon blog. Amazon has a 30 day refund policy – please call up cutomer service and they’ll gladly refund you the difference if you fall within the 30 day window.

  19. The kindle is still sitting in the box that I got for Christmas. Please direct me to a location that can talk me through operating it. I am mechanically challenged!!

    1. Gail, just locate the strip that has ‘Once upon a time …’ printed on it and pull along it. Then open up the box.

      Take the plug and put it into a wall socket. Attach the USB cable to it and then attach the other end to the Kindle (the slot it at the bottom). Let it charge for a few hours and then slide the power button at the top (opposite end from the cable slot) to turn on the Kindle. After that check out my Kindle 2 Video guide.

  20. I published it years ago. I would simply like to see it on Kindle free eBook. It is the process of getting it onto Kindle about which I am asking.

  21. I got a kindle-2 last Father’s Day from my grandchildren.
    Just started using it. Also just this year had my cataracts
    taken care of. Being mostly retired (still part-time) and a recent
    widower, leaves much time for an old pastime-reading.
    Lucky me. With a limited budget, these free and low-cost books make my winter months very enjoyable.
    Thanks Amazon

  22. I have a kindle `1 and love it but last night it froze up, since the manual is in the kindle and it does not work – anyone out there have a tip on how to “Unfreeze it”………………Thanks

    1. Jeannine, you need to open the back cover of your Kindle. You can do this by pressing it firmly and then sliding it open.

      Then there will be a reset button that you’ll need to press using a paper clip or an earring or something pointed. That wil restart your Kindle.

      A simple Google Search for ‘reset kindle 1’ will show you instructions with images.

      Also, this is an EST blog so your comment arrived too late.

  23. Pingback: Kindle |
  24. Im waiting for my new kindle to arrive.can,t the minute im reading Diane Chamberlain.and will be looking for her books in free download.

  25. Amazon books may be technically proficient but don’t order a book and have to return it. You will not have timely service and may not get the refund. Word to the Wise.

  26. seriously?!?! Could u make it anymore difficult to get books? So far I’m completely dissatisfied with your books and especially your video offerings . I will cancel after my free week is over . Also, your format is crappy!! Way too small
    , no categories, and ease of access to instant queue is ridiculous . I’d have to say, have your techies watch Netflix and see how easy it is to navigate . sorry but your site is too much trouble .

  27. Hello! I’ve been following your weblog for a while now and
    finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout
    out from Lubbock Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic work!
