How to Read Kindle Books Without a Kindle & for FREE?

Kindle App

For so long, I forgot I had Kindle app on my iPhone and iPAD.  With the app, I could download a Kindle book from Amazon on my iPhone and iPAD.  In fact, Amazon has Kindle apps for all different devices: iPhone, iPod, iPAD, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Mac, Windows 7, XP,Vista, and Windows 8.  Here is the website if you need more information on Kindle apps.  They are all free.

Once you installed the Kindle app on your device, you just have to login with your Amazon account user name and password.  You should be able to buy and download books from your app on any device.  The nice thing is all your books are automatically synchronized between your devices: furthest page read, bookmarks, and notes.  If you have Kindle apps on your computer and iPAD, you can start reading a book on your computer, and then pick up where you left off on your iPAD.Audible App

Another great thing is Amazon’s new audible book service.  They launched Audible app, which is synced with Kindle, as long as you use the same login as your Kindle account.  With both Kindle and Audible apps, you can switch between reading and listening seamlessly.  If you stopped at the end of page 5 on Kindle, when you start the book in Audible app, it will automatically pick up from page 6.

There are quite few good books are FREE.  Some examples are:
Black Beauty, by Anna Sewell.  Recommend age 9 – 12.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum.  Recommend for kids of all ages (especially now with Audible).
The Three Musketeers, by Alexandre Dumas.  Recommend for kids age 12 and up.

Make sure to take advantage of the free apps and books.  Hope you will find some books you like.

    Yes, thank you! I have the program on my PC, since half a year, and a number of ebooks … works fine – just time is needed to read them … :0)
    All the Best!

      I found the Audible is a very nice one too. Sync with Kindle very well.

    Thanks for liking my post today. As a retired nurse and teacher wading though Thucydides, I could have used this info before my class started! Thankfully, a classmate put me on to it.

  • Deborah Gambrel November 4, 2012, 4:38 pm

    Looking it up for my phone already. :)

    • iGameMom November 6, 2012, 2:09 pm

      It does come handy, doesn’t it?

      • Deborah Gambrel November 25, 2012, 10:36 pm

        I’m afraid I havent explored it fully yet. I need to learn more about it and connecting it to my Kindle. Mostly I wanted to see how I can use it for free for now. Thanks for following up though ;)

        • iGameMom November 26, 2012, 10:43 pm

          There are quite few great books are free. You should really try the app and get the free books.

      thanks for your comments. I was wondering how many people will use Kindle app on a computer or a laptop. I think this is a great idea to read Kindle books on the laptop.

      I had the app for a long time, almost since I had my iPhone. It just hit to me recently that I can read Kindle books on my phone. ;-) Thanks for supporting iGameMom and use my link!

    You can also download a Kindle app for your PC on Amazon.com. Works great, even on my tiny Toshiba notebook.

    • iGameMom October 31, 2012, 10:39 am

      Thanks for pointing out. Having a Kindle app on your laptop would be convenient, as you can take it with you and read your book anywhere you go.
