If Google Trends are anything to go by, a fair number of you were fortunate enough to unwrap a Kindle 3 this last Christmas. If not then you can still have access to the world of Kindle books from other sources including the device you’re using to read this post.
Amazon’s Kindle currently supports free readers for these devices:
Windows 7 Phones
As long as you have a 3G or Internet connection on your devices, you’ll be able to automatically sync where you last left off in a book, as well as keep your notes and highlights intact.
You can download the FREE Kindle reader for your device by simply clicking on the link below:
Now that you have your new Kindle Reader downloaded and installed on your device, you might want some books, so I thought I would provide you with some of the following resources for getting some free books to enjoy and explore with your reader app.
For all but the Kindle Store, you’ll need to transfer the books manually using a computer and USB cable.
- Project Gutenberg: 33,000 free e-books, including all of the classics, available in Kindle, HTML and simple text formats.
- Google E-Bookstore: The free section is filled with thousands of free, scanned copies of books, available in Kindle-friendly PDF formats.
- Internet Archive: Millions of primarily rare, out-of-print works in multiple languages and formats (including Kindle), especially useful for academic work.
- Open Library: 20 million user-contributed items in multiple editions and formats (including Kindle).
- ManyBooks.net: Nearly 30,000 titles, many of which have been pulled from Project Gutenberg. Has a good collection of little-known Creative Commons works.
