Free Kindle Books – How To Find Them

I have added a minimalist blog design to focus on my content. I just want my words to be visible to you. Like when you’re reading on your Kindle.

free kindle books

I love my Kindle. I have been using it for a long time, and I’ve tested it while I was on vacation living in a tent (without any electricity), and while I was in a small village in Italy. I use it every single day. The first thing I noticed was the cheap books, and all the free Kindle books. It’s just amazing. I read a lot more now, because of how easy it is to find high quality books and free Kindle books.

Free Kindle Books – The Video

I have created a video in order to show you how easy it is to find free Kindle books on any topic.

19 Free Kindle Books

I have just finished reading The Flinch by Julien Smith (he’s the co-author of Trust Agents), and Tales of the Revolution by Seth Godin. Both books are awesome and completely free. On my quest for more awesome and free Kindle books I discovered many.

Here’s a list of 19 free Kindle books that you should find interesting:

    I’d love to use Kindle, but its not very popular here. I think Kindle too should be given free of cost to everyone. That way, a lot more people will buy Kindle books and they can make a good revenue from a subscription model. Someone really needs to take it up with Amazon πŸ˜‰

    • Jens says:

      Hi Raj,

      I absolutely agree with you. The Kindle should be given away for free. Now they have a fairly cheap one with ads, but it’s still $79, and for many people this is a lot of money.

      I use my Kindle every single day, and it’s how I read my books. I was very sceptical at first, but now it’s like I don’t remember how I used to read books πŸ™‚

      Happy holidays Raj.

    How did you like me in Superheroes? Pretty cool, huh?

    I don’t have a Kindle and tried to get one for my wife for Christmas but she didn’t want it; she’s an old school page flipper. What I do have is a Kindle app on my computer and my iPhone; I was going to try some free e-books from the library, but think I’ll try some from your list first.

    Cool stuff Jens.

    • Hey Bill,

      You should buy a Kindle. I was an old school page flipper as well, but using the Kindle is so much easier. I especially like to carry it around while I’m on a holiday instead of adding 5-10 books in my suitcase. I have tried to read on my iphone, but that was too hard.

      I was thinking of buying the new Kindle Fire, but then I started thinking about why. I already have an iPad, and all I want to do with the Kindle is read. The Kindle Fire is more like an iPad, and I don’t need another one.

    Hey Jens,

    Somebody recommended to get The Flinch, actually two different persons, so it must be good!

    I already downloaded that one but I haven’t started reading it yet.

    Very cool list of books and AWESOME video, I wasn’t aware I could just look out for free kindle books like that.

    Guess I don’t spend that much time on Amazon haha

    Thanks again and Happy Holidays! πŸ˜‰


    • Jens says:

      Hey Sergio,

      I really enjoyed The Flinch. It’s like a kick in the gut, and it makes you want to take action, without thinking too much about the consequenses and that’s awesome, and something I really need.

      It’s not just time to read, but time to create some brilliant content πŸ™‚

      Happy holidays Sergio.

    Hi Jens, Excellent video! What software did you use for the video?

    This is great information. Anyone can get a Kindle app for their computer, smartphone, iPad, iPod Touch, etc. No need to own a Kindle, but I’m like you, I love my Kindle!

    Thanks for sharing these with us. I really appreciate the recommendations. I downloaded a few.

    My favorite free content is Delivereads, which is a compilation of interesting articles by Dave Pell. He will send the collection every so often to your Kindle for free. You can read about how it works here:

    Thanks for sharing this, Jens! Merry Christmas to you and your family. πŸ™‚

    • Jens says:

      Hi Carolyn,

      Thanks a lot. I’m still a newbie when it comes to video, and I’m trying my best to become better and speak slowly so you can understand my weird accent πŸ™‚

      I am using ScreenFlow. It’s very easy to use. I have only been watching some tutorials on YouTube. That’s all.

      I still haven’t tried Delivereads. I guess it’s time to sign up… thanks a lot for reminding me πŸ™‚

      Merry Christmas right back at you.

  5. Amazing Jens!

    I never knew you could really find free kindle books that easily πŸ™‚ I have never gone beyond people sending links if and when there were any kindle books online that they put up, but this sure is wonderful information.

    I guess I better get started and look around for more of such books on Kindle πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing πŸ™‚

    Wishing you and yours Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year πŸ™‚

    • Jens says:

      Hi Harleena,

      I haven’t been doing much research on Amazon either, but I started a few days ago, and then I discovered all the amazing free content. I just had to share it with you.

      There are thousands of brilliant books that people never read, so it’s actually a lot of fun searching for some hidden treasures πŸ™‚

      Merry Christmas Harleena.

  6. Ruth Sayson says:

    Your right about Kindle Jen, it surely am a handy gadget for person who find reading fun. I like to thank you for sharing these wonderful list of free downloadable books. I’ve choose to download a number of them since I usually travel a lot and reading is one of the things I do to kill some time.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Ruth,

      Thanks a lot for the feedback. I love reading on my Kindle, and discovering so many awesome free books makes it even more fun.

      Happy holidays.

  7. Thanks a lot for the feedback πŸ™‚

  8. Adrienne says:

    I don’t have a Kindle Jens but I do have the app for my computer and I’m in the process of reading The Flinch at this moment.

    Thanks so much for sharing this great list of freebies we can download. You are a wealth of good news this Christmas. Really appreciate it Jens..

    Merry Christmas! Hope you are enjoying this time with your family and that tofu steak turned out like you were hoping! Can’t wait to hear all about it.

    God Bless,


    • Jens says:

      Hi Adrienne,

      I hope you enjoy The Flinch as much as I did. It’s great to read (and watch movies) during the holidays. I like to relax, and not take too much action, but on the other hand, I am planning all my actions in 2012 during the holidays.

      Merry Christmas.

  9. Jens says:

    You should. There are so many awesome free books on any topic. The 19 books I listed are just some of them. Just follow the instructions in the video and you’ll find hundreds of brilliant free books πŸ™‚

  10. Christian Hollingsworth says:

    This post ROCKS! Really, thank you for the info. Excited to download more books to my Kindle DX. Already downloaded 400 of the classics! πŸ™‚

  11. Barry Wells says:

    Hi Jens, I hope that you had a good Christmas πŸ˜‰

    Great post and video, Kindle’s are red hot at the moment so your post is very timely as well.

    I never realised that there were free ebooks on Amazon for Kindle. Maybe it’s time for me to get an eReader….

    I do have the app on my PC but have not really used it other than testing the products i create for Kindle.

    Thanks Jens, have a Happy New year mate.


    • Jens says:

      Hi Barry,

      Thanks a lot. I’m still complete new to making videos, but I’m learning.

      It took me a long time to discover the free books on Amazon, and now I find them everywhere. I absolutely recommend that you buy a Kindle. I use it every single day, it’s just amazing if you enjoy reading.

      Happy new year Barry.

  12. CarolB says:

    Thanks for the great list of free Kindle books. I already see several I want to get that I was not aware were free. I have taken advantage of free Kindle books in the past, and often look at the Kindle Deal of the Day and Top 100 ebooks for less than $3.99 as well. Now that my son has a Kindle too (got a Fire for Christmas), I am going to have him review your video so he too can get his free books. Otherwise I will go broke! He’s even more of a book junkie than me.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Carol,

      It took me a long time to discover the free books on Kindle, but I keep buying a lot of cheap books. And that’s probably the biggest difference between having a Kindle and not for me. I buy books all the time, and I read a lot more now than I used to, all thanks to how easy it is to buy the books, and how cheap they are πŸ™‚

  13. Nice list Jens. Right now I’m reading the Flinch and I was Blind but now I see (Which I paid $2, but now is free for prime users).

    I’m amaze how many good free books you can find for kindle. I love my kindle too, was the best gift I received in my birthday.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Ricardo,

      Let me know how “I was Blind but now I see” was. I haven’t read that one.

      I have thought about buying the Kindle Fire, but since I’m only using it to read, and I have an iPad, I think I’ll skip that version πŸ™‚

  14. Joe Lampo says:

    Hello Jens! I have been following your blog for the past few days, and I’ve downloaded your ebook on Marketing. It is a fine read, put together very well. You have presented some excellent points relative to marketing not only a product or service, but ones self to prospective customers or clients.

    I am in the process of building a website, using WordPress; hope to have it ready soon. The site is hosted, but not yet published, as I am writing and tweaking it. Thanks, too, for your great post here on the free books available for the kindle. I recently bought a kindle fire, and I have quite a few books on it pertaining to WordPress, Facebook and blogging.

    I happened upon your blog a week or so ago through Sergio Felix’s blog, where I noticed a recent posting of yours. So, I clicked to visit your blog, and I liked what I found.

    By the way, I have interest in Norway and Norweginas because my wife is half Norwegian, and she is a distant relation of Rolf Amundsen.

    Well, that’s it for now. Keep up the good work. I have you on RSS.
    Stay well.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Joe,

      Thanks a lot for downloading and reading Marketing Made Simple. Let me know if you believe that I should edit it, and add some more details. This is just the basics, based on my own experiences. But I believe that most people can learn something from it.

      I’m going to write many new ebooks during 2012, so stay tuned πŸ™‚

      Serigo’s blog is awesome, and I’m glad that you’ve already discovered it. You can learn a lot from him.

      Cool that your wife is half Norwegian, Roald Amundsen is a very famous Norwegian, so you should be proud. I don’t have anyone in my family who are anywhere close to being famous πŸ™‚

      Talk to you later Joe. Happy new year.

      • Joe Lampo says:

        Thanks, Jens, for your comments, and for the email, too. I’ve already replied to your email. Will send you some further comments on your ebook. I’m looking forward to any others you produce. You have a good handle on the merits of marketing and placing your prospective customers as the #1 priority. Stay well!

        • Jens says:

          Thanks a lot Joe.

          I’m about to write some in Norwegian as well, but my number 1 priority in January (besides finishing my novel) is to write an ebook that I’ll publish on Amazon (for Kindle).

  15. Radu says:

    I need to ask you if the kindle is as good as they say? I want to buy one but I’m a little reserved.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Radu,

      Yes, you should buy a Kindle, that’s my advice. I was also a little reserved, because I love reading “regular” books. But now I almost exclusively read my books on Kindle. The reason is that it’s easy to read, the battery lasts for about a month, and the books are very cheap (and many are even free).

      I used to order most of my books from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, and I had to pay a lot for shipping. Now, I pay the same as people in the US, and it’s usually just $3 or so for each book. That’s amazing. And I can buy the books from anywhere in the world via the free 3G. I was in a tiny Italian village in September. I had no Internet connect at all, other than via my Kindle. I bought many books while traveling. It’s just perfect if you travel a lot.

      Let me know if you have any questions. By the way, I have the old version, no the Kindle Fire (and not the one with touch screen).

    • Joe Lampo says:

      Hi, Radu. Just read your query about the Kindle. I purchased the new Kindle Fire about a month ago. It works like a charm. Although I prefer “real” books you can hold and turn pages on, the kindle is nice for its convenience in size and capacity. For some things, such as a textbook or manual for software, I prefer the real book because it is quicker to access different pages, and sometimes you need to look at more than one page simultaneously, which you cannot do on the kindle or any other ebook reader. Feel free to comment further. I’ll be happy to respond.

      Best regards

      • Jens says:

        Thanks a lot for the help Joe. I really appreciate it.

        I have been looking at the Kindle Fire online, and it looks awesome. I have an old version of the Kindle DX, and I have an iPad, so I’m not going to buy the Fire, but that’s because I already have too much stuff πŸ™‚

  16. Jens says:

    I live in a small town in Norway, and we don’t have any stores we can contact if we have problems with a Kindle. I always contact Amazon via their website, and it seems to be working great. It’s the same with Apple, I have always just contacted them directly via phone or email.

    It would be awesome to be able to contact them via a store, but since I live in a small town, I figured it would be close to impossible for them to have a store here or somewhere close πŸ™‚

  17. Albert Bernard says:

    Thanks for the sharing keep up good work. The site is hosted, but not yet published, as I am writing and tweaking it. Thanks, too, for your great post here on the free books available for the kindle.

  18. Stan says:

    Kindle has been one of the most powerful gadgets we currently have nowadays. Nice to know that you’re giving us free kindle books that could be very useful to us in order to learn new things. What I like most with these free ebooks is cultivate a cool career. Everybody wants to have a great career where they improve their financial status at the same time.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Stan,

      I use my Kindle every single day, but I have only recently discovered the free ebooks. Most of the books I’m buying are now for Kindle and not regular books. Let me know if you found any of the free ebooks helpful.

      Thanks a lot for your comment.

  19. Hamish says:

    Hello Jens,

    I’ve had a Kindle for a couple of years now and I’ve certainly taken full advantage of all the free ebooks for it. Amazon has something like 1.8 million out of copyright books which you can download free of charge. Every now and again you will find publishers promoting a particular author giving more modern books away free as well.

    Over and above the free books, there are plenty of low priced books by independent authors – many of which are very good.

    Between the free books and the bargain indies, I reckon my Kindle has paid for itself and then some. Hope you have fun with your freebies.

    • Jens says:

      Hi Hamish,

      1.8 million out of copyright books? Wow, that’s amazing. I had no idea that there are so many free books out there. I have found 19 πŸ™‚

      • Hamish says:

        Sounds like you have plenty of free reading material to get through Jens! πŸ™‚

        And that’s just Amazon of course – there are plenty of other websites (e.g. Project Gutenberg to name just one) where you can find free books for the Kindle, and in a number of other formats as well for that matter.

        Save money and expand your mind. Can’t be bad can it?

        • Jens says:

          That’s right, and I’m still reading the Steve Jobs biography (been reading it for a month)…

          Do you have any free books for the Kindle that you highly recommend?

      • Hamish says:

        Hi Jens,

        You’re going to think I’m making this up, what with you being Norwegian – but I enjoyed “Olaf The Glorious” – based on Viking sagas and the Anglo Saxon Chronicles if I remember correctly. I don’t know which Amazon store you use, but it is available on both the US and UK sites as a free download.

        If that doesn’t do the trick for you, you can usually find plenty of Jules Verne, Dickens, Homer etc. I think that there’s something for everyone pretty much.

        Hope you find something you enjoy!

  20. Nicholle Olores says:

    Sounds great Jens! I had never used Kindle even before because it is not common in our place but I got interested when I know it from you. Thanks for the free stuff that you offer I probably check them out.

  21. Amit says:

    This is really great for those who are looking for some great books,Thanks for the post

  22. There’s thousands of free kindle books at and it has an easy search feature. All eBooks can be downloaded for free and read on any device!
