Are Amazon Kindle Ebooks Really Free?

Yes, there are free Amazon Kindle ebooks from time to time. Many authors will do this to promote a new book or to say thank you to their loyal readers. There is some confusion on how to download these books and not get charged for either the book or get signed up for the Kindle Unlimited program.  Here are my recommendations and please view the video below:

  • If you have One-Click purchasing turned on at Amazon, go to My Account and disable this feature.  Why? Some books are free for a limited time and you may end up paying for the book if you have the One Click automated payment feature turned on.
  • DO NOT CLICK the Read for Free link!  Look closely and this action will sign you up for the Kindle Unlimited program – you get the first 30 days for free and then Amazon will charge you a monthly subscription fee!
  • If you already have the Kindle book and you want the newer version, the best option is to DELETE the book from your Kindle or Kindle app AND to remove the book from your Amazon account as well.  Click HERE for more information at the Amazon website.
  • Don’t have a Kindle device?  No problem! See below on how to download the FREE Kindle App and read ebooks on your tablet, smart phone, laptop or desktop computer!

But I Don’t Have a Kindle Device! Read On . . .

Did you know that Amazon provides a FREE Kindle App that you can install on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or most any smart device? Click HERE to download the app . . . and don’t worry, the app is “responsive” which means it will know which version you need!

I have the Kindle App on my iPad and it works just like a Kindle device! I can change the font size, the word space and the lighting as well.
