Free Books for your Kindle 2 & Kindle

There are a lot of free books being released which you can peruse on your Kindles (some might need PDF to kindle conversion) -

  1. Laurie King’s The BeeKeeper’s Apprentice. Its extended for a few days only (beyond April 15th) so get it quick. It comes in 4 PDFs (see link at top of post for conversion guide).

    The Beekeeper’s Apprentice was chosen as one the “100 Favorite Mysteries of the 20th Century” by the IMBA and a Notable YA book by the American Library Association.

  2. Joe Blumenstein aka Joe Bees’ Get Off Your A** and Do Something: The Baby Boomer’s Guide to Getting and Staying Healthy.  Its a PDF you can download and convert.
  3. Next we have a rather interesting offer. Buy a book at an independent southern bookstore and some lady (as opposed to a fish) called Wanda will send you a free book -

    Buy a book at one of the participating Southern independent bookstores (online or in person), and you’ll get a free book. Just fill out the form and mail it in your receipt, and Wanda will ship you a free book from her personal huge library.

  4. If you have a kid under 5 you might be able to get a free book a month from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. This seems to be limited to only a few zip codes – worth a try though.
  5. Harper Collins have added some titles to their ‘Browse Inside – Full Access’ program. You can literally read the whole book on your PC. There are 18 books with Full Access, including -

    * Paulo Coelho’s The Winner Stands Alone.
    * The Zahir by Paulo Coelho.
    * The Peter Principle by Dr. Laurence J. Peter.
    * The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar.
    * Quite a few romance novels.
    * Some Vampire related books.
    * The first book of 2 Erin Hunter series – Seekers and Warriors.

  6. Till April 22nd, two free books from Microsoft Press - one each related to Windows Small Business Server 2008, and Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition. (found this courtesy books on the knob).
  7. A free Audible audiobook – METAtropolis.  Again Books on the Knob had the scoop.

Wow – that’s more free books than I thought and getting a 9 hr long sci-fi audio-book for my Kindle 2 was an unexpected bonus ;) .
