How to Download Free Books for your Kindle Reader

Kindle books (
Anyway, Kindle is kind of booming right now. Many people start to use it on their daily need for reading books. But most of them stuck on where to download or add their books on their kindle.

Here is just a few step to download and add your kindle books :

Let’s take a look at how to download, install and start reading eBooks. Your Kindle for PC will also let you download and pay for books as well. But as we cover free software here we will focus on some free eBook downloading and reading.

Kindle displays the items you've downloaded on the Home screen. If you have Kindle content stored in your Kindle library that isn't displayed, you can download it from Archived Items when connected to Whispernet. Your purchases are also available for download on the Manage Your Kindle page. Additional information is available on the Your Kindle Library Content Help page.

To download archived items:

  • Select "Archived Items" from the Home screen or "View Archived Items" from the menu.
  • Select the item from the Archived Items screen.

To download items archived on to your computer:

  • Visit the Manage Your Kindle page.
  • Scroll to the "Your orders" section and locate the item you wish to download.
  • Click on the "Deliver to" pull-down menu and select "Transfer via Computer."
  • Select the Kindle you wish to transfer the file to and click the "Download to computer" button.
  • Choose "Save file" when prompted by your Web browser.
  • Follow the instructions in the Transferring Files Via USB section below to place the file on your Kindle.
  • Click "Close" on the Manage Your Kindle page when the file is done downloading.

While most eBooks available on the Amazon Kindle store are paid, here are some simple ways by which you can find and download free books for reading on your Kindle Reader or your Kindle Desktop application.

#1. Google Books on your Kindle

Project Gutenberg, Google Books and FeedBooks are some popular sites that offer a large collection of public domain books in the standard ePUB format.

The Kindle for PC application cannot read ePUB files directly but you can use the excellent Stanza program (from Amazon itself) to convert these public domain books from .epub into .mobi format that you can then import into Kindle Desktop for reading*. That means you now have millions of out-of-copyright books for your Kindle for free.

[*] You can also use Stanza to convert PDFs, HTML web pages and other Office documents into .mobi format for reading inside the Kindle App but I see little reason why would anyone want to do so since the reading experience is not all that great.

#2. Find Free Kindle Books on

Before your proceed, please log-in to your Amazon account, choose "Manage your Kindle" and change the country associated with your Kindle account to "United States". This is important because most "free" content on the Kindle Bookstore is currently restricted to North America.
