Newbie Kindle owners...looking for Kindle books on Amazon?

This page list Kindle books exclusively. You can plug in an author, title, or sort by best selling, low to high, high to low, etc.

I keep it on my favorites bar on firefox.....very handly.

Thanks for the link, desertgrandma. Someday I hope to be a Kindle newbie. At least lack of money gives me plenty of time to do lots and lots of research!

She's enjoying it quite a lot. We had a bad bit of luck already though when one book we downloaded had woeful formatting (I'm ranting about it elsewhere here on MR ).

We're very happy with it - I want one now ... maybe the DX.

Well, the lighted cover does look pretty nice but I sort of have my heart set on an Oberon cover...

I know buying an after-market book light plus an Oberon cover is pretty costly, but it's all a pipe dream for me right now, anyway, so I can make my wish list and then eliminate things according to how much money I really have available. Oh yeah, and make sure I have enough $$ to actually buy some eBooks, in addition to the free ones I want, since reading, after all, is the whole point of getting an eReader in the first place!

I agree -this is definitely the best link for finding stuff.

A couple of tips:
Notice that you can refine your searches by choosing genre on the left side of the window.

Plus if you sort by price low to high and want just the new stuff, type in -domain at the top under search before you sort. This will get you a list of just the more current Amazon freebies.

cheers

Well, I certainly agree the Oberon covers are stunning...If they ever come out with a lighted cover, that will go on my birthday/anniversary/Christmas list!!

A lighted Oberon cover would be even more irresistible!!

Thank you for that tip, Leep - I had to try it out and it works just as you said it would. I wonder if that trick will work on other sites....
