How to Download Free Kindle eBooks

If you have ever browsed the books available on Amazon, you’re likely familiar with the vast amount of eBooks that are available to download. But did you know that Amazon has many Kindle eBooks available for free? Whether you use a Kindle device or the Kindle app, here is how to download free books onto your device so you can get started reading right away.

Downloading eBooks for a Kindle Device

The best way to download free Kindle eBooks is by going to Amazon’s website. Once you are logged in and have the book’s page pulled up, double-check that you have the Kindle edition selected and that the price is free. From there, you can click the “Buy now with 1-Click” button on the right of your screen.

After clicking that button, you will be taken to a page that lets you know that the book will be auto-delivered wirelessly and you can go to your device to begin reading your new book.

Another way you can download free Kindle Books is directly on your Kindle device. If you put “free books” in the search bar of the homepage, you’ll see a list of results from the Kindle Store.

Once you find the book you’re looking for, you can tap on it and see the book’s details. When you tap the “Buy for Free” button, you’ll be taken to a thank you page where your device lets you know that the book will show up in your library once it has finished downloading.

Can I Download eBooks on the Kindle App?

The Kindle app can be downloaded onto most devices, so this is one of the best eBook apps you can download. Whether you’re team Apple or team Android, the Kindle app can be downloaded on whatever device you would like to read on.

However, the Kindle app doesn’t allow readers to purchase eBooks in the app and this unfortunately does apply to downloading free Kindle books as well. You can search for free books there, but the app doesn’t provide a way to download them. Instead, you’ll have to go to Amazon’s website to download them. You can look at the “Downloading eBooks for a Kindle Device” section of this article for steps on how to download free Kindle eBooks!

Once you have logged into your Amazon account on the Kindle app and you have downloaded a free eBook from Amazon’s website, you should be able to see your downloaded book in the “Library” tab of the app. If you’re having trouble finding your downloaded books, we have another article that can help you find your downloaded books!
