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!


Synching Books To Your Device

If you’re having trouble getting your eBooks to show up on your Kindle, we recommend going into your Amazon library and ensuring that your eBooks have been downloaded to the correct device. You can do this by navigating to Your Content and Devices on Amazon’s website.

Once you pull up your content and devices, you’ll be able to re-send previously downloaded books to the correct device like this:

You should be able to select a device to re-deliver the book to from this list that comes up. We also recommend double-checking that your Kindle is properly connected to WiFi so that your eBook can download with no problems.


Get Free eBooks Sent to You

The easiest way to find out about the latest free eBooks is to sign up for the Freebooksy newsletter! All you have to do is select which genres you enjoy reading and you’ll get our newsletter in your email each morning with a list of free eBooks in your favorite genres. The newsletter will take you to the book’s Amazon page, which makes it easy for you to follow the steps above and download free Kindle books. Happy reading!


How Do I Find My Downloaded Books on My Kindle?

You read the reviews, downloaded the sample (and loved it), and now you’re ready to roll. Time to read that fresh eBook. But where is it? How do you find downloaded books on Kindle?

eBooks bought for Kindle are associated with your Amazon account, not your device, so you may have to take a few troubleshooting steps to find your downloaded titles across your eReader, phone, tablet, etc. Here’s how.


Finding Downloads on the Kindle eReader

If you’re reading via the Kindle eReader device:

1. From your Kindle home screen, tap the “Library” tab. On our Kindle Paperwhite, this tab is located in the bottom right corner.

2. At the top of the Library page, tap the slider icon. From there, you can select “Downloaded” books so you will be able to view your list of downloaded books.

Kindle eReader Downloads Troubleshooting Tips

• Make sure your eReader is connected to the internet

• Make sure your device is connected to the right Amazon account

Check to see that your payment details are up to date in your Amazon account (an expired credit card means you can’t purchase new eBooks, for example)

Sync your Kindle via the “Sync Your Kindle” button in the top navigation menu

Use Amazon’s “manage your content and devices” tool to make sure the eBook has been delivered to the app (or device)

Restart your Kindle via Settings > Device Options > Restart

Reset your Kindle to factory settings via Settings > Device Options > Reset (note that this will remove all current downloads)


Finding Downloads on the Kindle app

If you’re using the Kindle app on your phone or tablet:

1. Open the Kindle app.

2. Tap “Library” in the bottom menu.

3. At the top of the Library page, tap “Downloaded.” Here, you will find your list of downloaded books.

Kindle App Downloads Troubleshooting Tips

If you still can’t find your Kindle books in the app library:

Make sure your device is connected to the internet

Make sure you have the latest version of the Kindle app

Check to see if your Kindle app is synced with the right Amazon account

Make sure your payment details are up to date (an expired credit card means you can’t purchase new ebooks)

Sync your mobile Kindle app

Use Amazon’s “manage your content and devices” tool to make sure the eBook has been delivered to the app (or device)

Delete the Kindle app and download it again (note that this will remove existing downloads)


Adding Downloads From Other eBook Stores and Libraries

Amazon allows readers to download books from other digital storefronts and libraries and add them to their devices and to the Kindle app. Kindle accepts a number of file formats, including .doc/.docx, JPEG, HTML, PNG, and EPUB. Make sure the file type you’re using is compatible. You can find a complete list here.

Here are a few steps to make sure you’ve correctly added eBooks from another source:

1. Download the file to your computer or phone

2. From your device, tap Settings > Your Account > Send to Kindle email, then copy the email address listed

3. Using an email server of your choice, open a new email and plug that Kindle email address into the “To” line

4. Attach your eBook files and tap “Send”

5. Wait a few minutes, then refresh your Kindle

6. Your newly downloaded eBook should appear in your Kindle library

6 Small Town Books for Fans of Gilmore Girls

As the weather gets cooler, we get into the best time of the year: Gilmore Girls rewatch season. While the show originally aired from 2000 to 2007, this show that features a mother-daughter duo living in the small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut is still beloved today.

In the first season of the show, we meet young single mom Lorelai Gilmore and her academically gifted 16-year-old daughter, Rory. To help pay for the expensive private school Rory was accepted to, Lorelai asks her wealthy parents—who she is not close to—for assistance. Her mother, Emily, agrees, but under one condition: the girls must attend dinner at their house every Friday night.

There are many reasons Stars Hollow is so beloved; it’s a haven for anyone who loves coffee shops, bookshops, and independent businesses. Fans of the original series, as well as the 2016 Netflix revival, will enjoy our list of six books that feature small towns!

Why Small Town Books Are So Popular

Small towns and slower lifestyles have been romanticized for centuries. Writers have fashioned stories about the innocence of small-town life, the sanctity of country churches, and the wholesomeness of the simple pace. Today, there’s a renewed interest in reading books set in small towns.

Many readers are drawn to these locations as escape pods—they’re quiet and offer seclusion. But these small towns offer readers more than just an aesthetic; there is an intimate familiarity to many of these fictional locales that draws people back again and again. Paired with a cast of characters who have known each other for years, small town books are perfect for readers looking for a comforting read to immerse themselves in.


Small Town Books - Bella and the New Guy by Amy Sparling

1. Bella and the New Guy

by Amy Sparling

In the small Texas town of Roca Springs, Bella is about to graduate from high school and is looking forward to spending her summer at the local motocross track. Her passion is dirt bikes and the last thing she’s looking for is Liam Mosely to appear in her life. The disgraced motocross star was kicked off the professional team he was on for being arrogant and cocky. He’s trouble but attractive, and Bella suspects that this summer may not go according to her plan.

If you are Team Jess when it comes to Rory Gilmore’s love life, you’ll enjoy this first book in Amy Sparling’s Love on the Track series. One rave review on Amazon says, “Bella’s character is strong and relatable while Liam is exactly what you’d expect (but swoon!). And their chemistry sizzles on the page!” Don’t miss this small town young adult read!

As a romance begins to spark, Jennie will have to navigate life’s twists and turns in the midst of small town chatter.

Written by a New York Times bestselling author, Small Town Rumors features a tiny town fueled by gossip. In Stars Hollow, Patty and Babette are often seen chatting about their town’s fellow residents.

Both of these boys are Jayden’s best friends, but only one will be her first kiss, one will be her prom date, and one will propose to her.

This contemporary young adult romance from author Jillian Dodd features a love triangle storyline that is perfect for fans of the Gilmore Girls episodes where Rory was faced with choosing between Dean and Jess. There are over 2,700 five-star reviews on That Boy, and they all agree “this is legitimately one of the cutest, awesomest love stories!”

Meanwhile, Karen’s mother, Nan, knows things will work out for Charlotte in the end. But if she could put her fragmented memory’s pieces together, she’d have some fun tales to share.

Similar to Gilmore Girls, The Bad Mother’s Handbook features three generations of women, each trying to navigate the complexities life throws at them. This international bestseller has received lots of praise since its publication in 2007, and one rave review calls it “a must-read for mothers and daughters everywhere.”

6 Mental Health Books We Love

Mental health books comprise a genre rich with diverse voices, perspectives, and approaches. Books about mental health come in many forms, and there’s an abundance of great choices for everyone.

Types of Mental Health Books

Mental health books come in all forms. There are biographies, like Kay Redfield Jamison’s An Unquiet Mind, a compelling account of her experience with bipolar disorder. And similar books about living with specific diagnoses, like anxiety, depression, schizoaffective disorder, and schizophrenia.

There are books about the history of mental illness and its treatments, like Desperate Remedies: Psychiatry’s Turbulent Quest to Cure Mental Illness by the sociologist Andrew Scull. You can even find books of poetry about mental health. The Carrying by Poet Laureate Ada Limón includes verses about the grief of infertility.

Some mental health titles fall into the self-improvement category, like Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans.

How to Pick a Book About Mental Health

When picking a book about mental health, you will be presented with a plethora of options. These questions will help you identify which read is right for you:

1. What is my goal? Am I looking for tips on mental healthcare? Do I want to feel understood? Do I want to understand someone else? To understand the history of mental health and diagnoses?

2. Am I looking for a narrative story? Advice or instructions? A historical or medical account?

3. Consider who is writing the book—what expertise do they have?

In Healing, Insel shifts the focus from the biological and chemical influences on mental health to how we can prevent and heal from the effects of mental illness. The book explores why the quality of mental healthcare varies so widely, why many practitioners lack accountability, and why we’ve become so resigned to treating symptoms rather than problems.

Insel lays out the brokenness of the mental health system and how it can be made right, with what he calls the three Ps: people, place, and purpose.
