Got a Kindle and Having problems getting started? Try here........the Amazon Kindle "fast start" page.......

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200375430

This is for those of you wondering where to get all those free books you've been hearing about.

Start HERE first. We have thousands of free ebooks, loving formatted by our own members, for a great reading experience. Look under the "ebooks" Tab.


Now, there is also www.feedbooks.com This site offers books also beautifully formatted, and they also have a catalog available to be loaded directly to the Kindle. Books are available in English, French and Spanish

And then, there is www.manybooks.net Books are available in 32 languages. A site well worth looking at.

Baen books is a wonderful site for SciFi enthusiasts. http://www.baen.com/ Lots of free books available here.

These are just some of the places to go for free books, regardless of the device owned. I"m sure other members will post different ones.

Enjoy!
Thanks Desertgrandma! That is some great info!

Hi,

I'm relatively new to the site. I think I joined during the summer, but I haven't been around much. Still poking my nose in here and there, seeing what's going on.

I'm an author as well as a reader, and I just wanted to check the rules before posting a link and contravening some guideline.

I released the PDF version of my last book (a how to guide on self-publishing) under a Creative Commons License - meaning anyone is free to copy, print, share, download etc., as long as they credit me as the author, don't amend it, and don't profit from it.

It's free for anyone to share. Is there an appropriate spot to either upload it, or share the link?

Dave

Yes, we have an eBook upload area of the site and we also have an author area of the site where you can discuss topics with other authors and can announce eBooks. Welcome to the site.

Thank you for this post! A newbie to my Kindle 3, MR, Calibre, etc.

This site is awesome and this information is absolutely something I have looked for. I have read the WIKI.

Thank you, Grandma, and to all who make the forums a home base for the huge learning curve of all newbies.
