    Hi everyone, and a very happy Christmas to you all!!

    I have a new Kindle for Christmas and wondered if any other owners of Kindle's knew any free books to download.

    I have looked on the Amazon site and they seem reasonable, but I think I will soon run up quite a bill, so any pointers would be gratefully appreciated.

    Look again...Amazon have thousands of free, out of copyright books. For good advice from fellow users, follow the link.

    Go to the kindle storefront and look for Kindle bestsellers. The list you get will be paid for books but in the top right hand corner there is a link to the top 100 free Kindle books.

    Enjoy your Kindle!

    Agree with Bryan this is a regular source of books new free book daily, free to register then drop the bar down that says e books click on free books and they have a different selection on every day. If you have the 3g kindle log on then go to book store, look which book you want type in the authors name, click it will take you to the store where it will show you it is free for that day click on buy, and it will come straight on to your kindle in a minute.

    Lots of sites on line with free books, many of them already mentioned. Project Gutenberg has hundreds of classic novels available. Don't worry if a file is not in Kindle (or .MOBI) format as Calibre is a quite easy piece of kit to use to convert it to a suitable format.

    Calibre is available as a free download by the way.

    Happy new year.:Smile:

    The books on Amazon's Top 100 change daily.

    You can also download a free chapter of any book before you buy.

    I've just downloaded Sue Johnstone's autobiography, which was lower priced than a couple of weeks ago.

    You know that it is a trilogy? The others are also available about £3.20 each... I think.

    Happy reading, regards Bryan

    PS: Have you downloaded "Kindle for PC" from Amazon website ?
