Did you know you can read Kindle books for free without actually buying a Kindle? Amazon has released a free app which allows users to download Kindle books on phones, tablets and PCs. Amazon’s Kindle app uses Whispersync technology which enables users to download any book instantly, it literally takes seconds for your book to appear. You can also add bookmarks as well as make notes and highlights across any of the devices you use the app on, including the Kindle if you happen to have one. This means you can read a book on your phone, add a bookmark, then pick up where you left off on any of your other devices.
As you may or may not know, books that are out of their copyright agreements are free to download, that means you can read many of the classic novels without spending any money whatsoever. If the books are still within their copyright agreement then you do of course have to pay, however you will still be saving around half the price of what you would spend with a high street retailer. Plus you don’t have to schlep across town to purchase it or wait for delivery. If you have ever used Amazon’s free delivery service you will know it can take weeks for a book to arrive.
Available Device Options:
